NPT 2032 Overview
Compact design and a feature–rich set of capabilities mean the NPT 2032 is a highly energy efficient solution for operators looking for IP Clos Data Center solution running on a commercial SONiC distribution that provides full set of Layer 3 functionality. The Neptune 2032 uses a NOS based on fully supported commercial open-source SONiC distribution, which Ribbon integrate with fully certified OCP Accepted Edge-Core Networks switch hardware and Broadcom Trident 3 silicon.
The NPT 2032 provides 3.2Tbps capacity, supporting 32 QSFP28 ports which can be configured to provide 100GbE, 40 GbE, 2x50 GbE, 4x25 GbE and 4x10 GbE interfaces. The Neptune 2032 is optimized to provide BGP EVPN-VXLAN in a IP CLOS datacenter architecture and has the flexibility to be deployed in configurations varying from fully non-blocking through to 15:1 oversubscription (downlink:uplink) . The Neptune 2032 is agile enough to support multiple deployment options such as top-rack leaf switch (TOR), border-leaf deployments, End of row (EOR), spine. Neptune 2032 has interchangeable front-to-back and back-to-front fan and PSU options, so it can be deployed in both server racks and aggregation/routing/networking racks.
Ribbon’s integrated solution is end-to-end system tested and validated. Training, installation and ongoing operational support and expertise is provided by our extensive support teams who offer a tailorable set of white-glove services able to meet every customers needs.
For customers considering disaggregated networking datacenter solutions, Ribbon can offer validation services for 3rd party hardware running SONiC NOS.
