Exaware, a leading provider of Open Networking software solutions, and Edgecore Networks, the leader in Open Networking hardware solutions, today announced a global partnership agreement, to jointly provide routing solutions for Communication Service Providers (CSPs). As part of the agreement, Exaware and Edgecore will combine their experience and expertise to integrate and distribute high-end routing solutions for Internet peering, datacenter gateway, provider edge, and access/aggregation applications.
Internet peering is a critical part of every CSP network, enabling two or more networks to connect and directly exchange traffic to ensure customers' access to global Internet content. With ExaNOS, Exaware’s feature-rich, high-scale Network Operating System, running on flagship Edgecore Network's hardware equipment, such as the AG130 (AS5916-54XKS), CSPs can now benefit from a robust and cost-effective Internet peering solution. Skillfully designed, the joint solution can process a comprehensive Internet routing table with unprecedented convergence time, together with high-scale BGP RIB, BGP-PIC Edge/Core, complemented by advanced peering features, including Route Leak, RPKI, and rich BGP policy language. In turn, this enables CSPs to break existing vendor lock-in and bring innovation to the heart of the network.
“Edgecore are very pleased to work together with Exaware. Combining robust hardware from Edgecore and advanced software from Exaware, we believe the communication service provider can enjoy the innovation and benefit of open networking,” said Heimdall Siao, President of Edgecore Networks. “As a provider of open networking solution to tier one operator worldwide, and leading contributor to OCP, ONF, and TIP open communities, we fully understand operator’s requirement to reduce the cost of network deployment while moving toward a more consistent and open infrastructure across the network.”
