Shenzhen, China, Oct 28, 2022 – The open optical network device explorer, GIGALIGHT, has just launched the Integrated TOR Solutions for Data Centers.
The data center integrated TOR solution is a new concept, which mainly includes the following components: standard chassis, TOR switches, servers, Fiber optic NIC, DAC/AOC cables and optical modules.
GIGALIGHT’s experiment is to interconnect active rack products and Leaf switches to provide a complete solution for small and medium data centers. The integrated TOR solutions currently available are mainly based on 25/100G interconnection. In the next step, GIGALIGHT will build a 100G/400G interconnection solution based on the silicon photonics technology.
- TOR: Huawei 25G/100G TOR switches. The server is equipped with a Mellanox dual-port network card, and several 25G DAC/AOC/optical modules as downlink channels.
- Leaf: Huawei 100G/400G switches. Several 100G DAC/AOC/optical modules as uplink channels.
Adoption of active rack products is a common solution for large data centers. Meanwhile it also provides certain commercial value for global small and medium data centers. GIGALIGHT provides fully customized and interconnected rack integration products and services according to users’ needs. This achievement is from GIGALIGHT Open Optical Network Laboratory.
