Enterprise SONiC Distribution by Edgecore

Software for Open Networking in the Cloud (SONiC) is an open source network operating system (NOS) based on Linux that runs on switches from multiple vendors and ASICs. SONiC offers a full suite of network functionality, like BGP and RDMA, that has been production-hardened in the data centers of some of the largest cloud service providers. It offers teams the flexibility to create the network solutions they need while leveraging the collective strength of a large ecosystem and community.

Pine Networks provides the Enterprise SONiC distribution by Edgecore, a hardened, open distribution of SONiC which runs on Edgecore Open Networking switches.

Enterprise SONiC Distribution by Edgecore can run across multiple switch platforms for 1G/10G/25G/100G/400G, including well-known silicon solutions such as Broadcom and Intel. A choice of different silicon designs gives users freedom in their network design.

Enterprise SONiC Distribution by Edgecore is built from the Community SONiC distribution, which has been further tested and hardened to ensure production-ready deployment on Edgecore open networking platforms, and all changes are contributed back to the community.

SONiC Use Cases

Edgecore Networks provides a full line of open networking switches from 1G, 10G, 25G, 100G to 400G switches for use cases, such as

  • Data centers
  • Enterprises
  • Retails
  • High performance computing

To ensure the ease-of-deployment, Edgecore solutions are validated with a variety of optics and cable delivered from Edgecore as well as other industry sources. This ensures that the overall system: switch hardware, NOS and connectivity are proven to work together, removing concerns about platform level interoperability.
