The S9600-102XC open aggregation router, is a multi-function, disaggregated white box aggregation routing platform with an external TCAM. It is equipped with Broadcom's Qumran2c merchant silicon and Intel Skylake processor for high capacity routing, better power efficiencies and more buffering within a compact 2RU router. It features 96x25G and 6x100G high speed ports with a switching capacity of up to 2.4Tbs.

The S9600-102XC can be deployed at C-RAN hubs to provide 5G fronthaul transport aggregation or be positioned at the backhaul for aggregating BBU pooling. It can also be programmed to be a Broadband Network Gateway (BNG) to enable the next generation broadband network. Equipped with high port density, Class C timing and fully supporting SyncE and IEEE 1588v2, the S9600-102XC is capable of fulfilling the role of any type of network aggregation.

Specializing in 5G Time Sensitive Networking applications, the S9600-102XC complies to the IEEE 802.1CM and can act as an Edge Grand Master (GM) clock. Additionally, it is compatible with high accuracy fronthaul synchronization and timing requirements (ITU-T G.8273.2 T-BC, Class C) to ensure error free operation of 5G applications.
