Data Center Switches

Disaggregated data center switches offer vendor choice, flexibility, cost optimization, scalability, agility, automation, interoperability, and simplified network operations.

The use of merchant silicon in whitebox switches allows for cost savings, as these components are mass-produced and available at a lower price compared to proprietary ASICs. It also enables whitebox manufacturers to leverage the advancements and ongoing innovations in merchant silicon, staying up-to-date with the latest networking capabilities.

It’s important to note that while whitebox switches may use the same ASICs and components, their differentiation lies in the software layer, where organizations can choose from a variety of NOS options or even develop their own software to meet their specific requirements. This software flexibility and openness are key aspects that set whitebox switches apart from traditional, closed-architecture vendor solutions.
