Next Generation Fixed Router to Simplify the Core and Scale the Internet Border and Interconnect

With cloud services, 4K HD video streaming, Internet of Things (IoT), and mobile connectivity for billions of devices becoming standard, organizations must modernize the way they communicate and conduct business. Increasingly organizations are expanding from on premise, private and hybrid cloud to full multi-cloud architectures to address agility, scale, security, reliability and cost requirements as digital transformation reshapes their business environment.

To succeed in the digital era, organizations need network platforms with the adaptability to address these rapidly evolving demands and enable them to simplify and scale operations while driving down cost. Such platforms deliver innovative software optimized with programmable hardware to analyze and automate network operations, thereby reducing OpEx, and provide flexible deployment options with forwarding performance and scale to dramatically reduce CapEx.

An Adaptable Internet-scale Routing Platform

The ExtremeRouting SLX 9640 is designed to cost-effectively deliver the scale and performance needed to address the explosive growth in network bandwidth, devices, and services-today and well into the future. This flexible platform, powered by Extreme SLX-OS, provides carrier-class advanced features that leverage proven Extreme routing, MPLS, Carrier Ethernet, and VXLAN overlay technology currently deployed in the most demanding service provider, data center, and enterprise networks. And it is all delivered through space- and power-efficient forwarding hardware.

The flexible architecture is designed for optimal operations, supporting diverse deployment options-such as Internet border, collapsed border routing and data center interconnect, and network packet broker aggregation deployments-that require deep buffering for lossless forwarding, advanced MPLS, Carrier Ethernet features or VXLAN network virtualization overlays, and greater bandwidth. In addition, the SLX 9640 helps address the increasing agility and analytics needs of digital organizations with innovative network automation and visibility, capabilities enabled through Extreme Workflow Composer™ with turnkey automation suites and the Extreme SLX Insight Architecture.

Flexible Border Routing with Internet Route Scale, Ultra-Deep Buffers, MPLS, and EVPN

The SLX 9640 is the industry's most powerful compact deep buffer Internet border router, providing a costefficient solution that is purpose-built for the most demanding service provider and enterprise data centers and MAN/WAN applications. The robust system architecture-supported by SLX-OS and a versatile feature set including IPv4, IPv6, MPLS/VPLS, and OpenFlow forwarding-combines with Carrier Ethernet 2.0 and OAM capabilities to provide deployment flexibility. This enables the SLX 9640 to scale from the data center border to data center interconnect and MAN/WAN environments while supporting the route and policy scale of demanding peering and network packet broker aggregation needs.

Designed with state-of-the-art network processor technology, the SLX 9640 has a switch fabric capacity of up to 900 Gbps in a 1U form factor. Advanced hardware with fine-grained QoS support enables full-duplex, highspeed performance for any mix of IPv4, IPv6, and MPLS/ VPLS services.

SLX 9640 hardware supports flexible port configurations with 24 ports of dual mode 10 GbE/1 GbE and 12 ports of dual mode 100 GbE/40 GbE. In addition, each 100 GbE port can support 4 ports of 25 GbE via breakout, while each 40 GbE port can support 4 ports of 10 GbE via breakout.
