3D MEMS Optical Circuit Switching for Software Defined Data Centers and Metro Networks.
The New Generation S-Series Optical Circuit Switch Family
The new switch is optimized for data center applications and features dramatic size and power reduction. The S-Series family has been deployed in the worlds largest cloud data centers and media production networks and builds on CALIENT’s legacy of success in Tier 1 Service Provider networks.
Available in 320×320 (S320) and 160×160 (S160) port versions, the S-Series product line is the highest density all-optical switch family in the industry.
The New SDN Hybrid Packet-Optical Data Center Network
The explosion of video and handheld computing is driving unprecedented growth in bandwidth demands in data center networks. Software Defined (SDN) Hybrid Packet-Optical networks consisting of both packet based switching and CALIENT’s S-Series Optical Circuit Switches allow data centers to scale 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s network capacity at 5 to 10 times lower cost than pure packet solutions.
Software Defined Optical Topology Management
CALIENT’s Optical Circuit Switching technology supports managed evolution from current architectures to SDN by enabling software controlled configuration and management of all fiber-optic connectivity between switches, routers, servers and storage devices within data centers and across metro or wide area networks. The technology is transparent to data speed, and is protocol agnostic, thus it offers very high bandwidth and configuration flexibility as networks grow in speed to 40Gbps, 100Gbps, and beyond.
