Distributed Disaggregated Chassis Routing System

  • DDC “Line Card” white box
  • 40 x 100GE QSFP28 service ports
  • 13 x 400GE QSFP-DD fabric ports
  • 1 x RJ-45 + Micro USB serial console ports
  • 1 x 1GBase-T Ethernet port for Out-of-Band management
  • 1 x USB 2.0 Type-A general purpose port
  • 2 x 10GBase-X SFP+ management ports

The S9700-53DX is the best of breed robust, flexible and carrier-grade IP/MPLS “line card” white box router that can be deployed in the core or edge to transport services over a scalable next-gen Telecom network. Equipped with 40 x 100GE service supports and 13 x 400GE fabric ports, the S9700-53DX is suitable for central office data centers, and general core/edge network data aggregation. It enables fault and performance monitoring, non-stop routing support for control and data plane, and comprehensive high-availability networks.

The S9700-53DX can be positioned as standalone or coupled with the S9705-48D fabric white box router in small, medium, and large clusters enabling 4Tb to 192Tb switching capacity. By connecting to the S9705-48D (fabric white box), it scales out not only economically and rapidly, but it also brings down the total cost of ownership.

The S9700-53DX adopts the innovated discrete Network Cloud Processor (NCP or line card white box) and Network Cloud Fabric (NCF or fabric white box) building blocks providing flexibility to core router needs in the industry, integral to Ethernet switching performance and intelligence to networks while minimizing the network complexity.
