Product Overview

The Inventec D7054 is a high performance 25GbE Top of Rack (ToR) switch designed for server access in Data centers as well as for Enterprise and Service Provider network deployments. The switch can be deployed in large scale layer 2 and layer 3 networks. Virtualized, overlay and traditional Enterprise & Data center networks are fully supported. Today’s applications require networks to be Agile, Scalable, Flexible, Reliable, Programmable and Open. The D7054 switch presents an open architecture with high bandwidth and low latency design. It delivers 1.8Tb/s throughput in a compact 1RU form factor. It offers 48x25GbE + 6x100GbE ports and is a true phyless design. The SDN switch supports line rate L2/L3 forwarding, programmability, network virtualization, QoS and zero touch provisioning. The D7054 offers customers a compelling choice between a high performance Quad core x86 and a very powerful Octal Core x86 CPUs based on functional and operational requirements.

Support for Open Network Ecosystems

The Inventec D7054 is an open switch that supports multiple Network Operating Systems (NOS). The switch configuration supports Inventec IN-OS or third party NOS. The switch can even be shipped as bare metal. The switch is SDN enabled and supports OpenFlow. Full ONIE support assures network operators of seamless integration into today’s open network environments.

High Performance, Scalable and Flexible

The Inventec D7054 is a high performance switch allowing wire rate of 2.67B packets per second with a low cut-through mode latency, 16MB on-chip buffer memory and dynamic buffer management to prevent catastrophic TCP traffic scenarios. The switch offers scalability by supporting choice of high end X86 control processor with upto 16BG of fast DDR4 memory. With a phyless design, the switch offers a low cut through latency. The switch is flexible and supports different cabling option as per customer needs. AOC (Active Optical Cabling) and pluggable transceiver optics of different length of fiber connections are supported. The port use is also flexible. Each QSFP28 100GbE port can be used as 4x25GbE and all SFP28 25GbE ports can be used in 10GbE mode. The allocated space within the forwarding table is also flexible and can accommodate varying sizes of MAC addresses, Layer 3 host routes and longest Prefix Match table entries.

Agile, Programmable and Supports Analytics

The switch is programmable and supports RESTful API interface. It allows for automatic provisioning and configuration with Puppet, Chef. Zero touch provisioning is also available. With orchestration tool integration, the switch enables automation and provisioning of L2 and L3 services in the data center. Lots of valuable analytics can be obtained from the switch by using network instrumentation app and CPU traffic filtering.

Rich Feature Set

The switch has a rich L2/L3 feature set to address the increase in datacenter network deployments and distributed computing applications. For cloud networking, it includes large L2/L3 switching & forwarding capacity and supports numerous multi-pathing and tunneling technologies and datacenter features like ECMP, VXLAN and NVGRE. These overlays allow for network agility since the network operators do not have to modify the physical switch devices in case a user VM moves from one rack to another within the datacenter.

Available and Reliable Design

The switch is datacenter optimized with power and fan redundancy. It has a backup SPI boot flash that will activate for boot recovery if primary flash is corrupted. Also, with a Phyless switch, the overall MTBF increases with less number of hardware components.

In Summary

Overall performance, feature-richness, high availability, programmability, port-density, and line-rate switching capability makes the D7054 an excellent choice for next generation large and medium sized datacenters. This also makes the D7054 well suited for use as a general purpose switch in the Enterprise and Service Provider networks.
