Global Ethernet Metro Solutions: JetCore Based BigIron Systems With 10 Gigabit Ethernet
With the BigIron systems powered by JetCore modules and Foundry's IronWare operating system, Metro service providers can build simple, cost-effective Layer 2 and Layer 3 Metro networks to offer high-performance Transparent LAN Services (TLS) and Internet connectivity to enterprise customers. Foundry's new JetCore based systems, complemented by the current IronCore™ based systems, empower Metro service providers to harness the power of network performance into competitive business advantages by offering profitable high-performance bandwidth services.
In order to provide TLS for point-to-point and multi-point-to-multi-point connectivity, many Metro service providers chose to build Layer 2 Ethernet networks for simplicity, low-cost and VLAN-based security. Foundry's Global Ethernet metro solutions offer robust scalability and SONET like resiliency and offer a range of metro network design choices with or without Spanning Tree. Foundry's Spanning Tree based Metro solution includes SuperSpanTM, Rapid STP based on 802.1w, Per VLAN Group Spanning Tree (PVGST) based on 802.1s and SAV for STP and VLAN scalability. As an alternative to Spanning Tree, BigIron systems feature Metro Ring Protocol (MRP) for sub-second fail over in ring topologies and VSRP for sub-second fail over in mesh topologies allowing SONET like protection in Metro Ethernet networks.
Dynamic bandwidth provisioning makes it possible for providers to control the amount of bandwidth consumed by any individual customer and manage bandwidth as a commodity. Properly monitoring and accounting the bandwidth is equally important to ensure customer satisfaction with the service. Using sFlow based on RFC 3176, the service provider can accurately monitor the network activity for a given customer and proactively recommend additional bandwidth as needed. Detailed information provided by the built-in per port sFlow collector allows in-depth network analysis.
BigIron Jetcore Solutions For Internet Data Centers
BigIron systems equipped with JetCore modules provide an ideal choice for Internet data centers because of the 10/100, Gigabit and 10 Gigabit Ethernet port density, superior serviceability, high availability, security and advanced Layer 2/3 feature sets. With wire-speed, granular rate limiting, service providers can meter bandwidth and use Foundry's sFlow based on RFC 3176 to provide wire-speed traffic accounting for accurate end-user billing. The BigIron 4000, 8000 and 15000 systems provide an array of purpose-built advanced Layer 2 and Layer 3 features such as Private VLANs, SuperSpan, VRRP, OSPF, IS-IS and a robust feature-rich BGP implementation that scales to hundreds of peers. With the new 16-port Gigabit modules, fiber and 100/1000 Copper module, BigIron systems can offer an unprecedented Gigabit port density of up to 232 Gigabit ports in a single system that consumes just 17 rack units enabling cost-effective, high performance Gigabit services and server connectivity. With Foundry's standards-based 10 Gigabit Ethernet modules, service providers can immediately scale the data center backbone and offer 10 Gigabit uplinks from Gigabit aggregation switches connecting to server farms. Foundry BigIron can support a number of different optics for its 10 Gigabit Ethernet module to allow high performance connectivity between Internet data centers in different parts of a city up to 40 kilometers apart.
