Purpose built to minimize the power per terabit of bandwidth in modular chassis and disaggregated distributed system, Jerciho2c+ enables a 36 Port 400GbE line-card with integrated security with only two chips. This innovative new solution significantly reduces footprint, complexity, power and costs compared to alternative solutions that require a far larger number of devices.
“Broadcom’s field proven Jericho, Tomahawk and Trident family of products are setting the pace for the industry in scalability, port density and power efficiency,” said
Core and edge routing solutions rely on flexible packet processing and feature concurrency. The Jericho2c+ programmable pipe, large-scale forwarding databases and future-proofing matrix of programmable elements, provide a set of capabilities that addresses the most challenging routing requirements. Featuring a high integration level, Jericho2c+ improves port density, increases subscribers scale, reduces power per bit, and reduces the total cost of ownership— thus making it the building block of choice for future routing networks.
A growing requirement of hyperscalers is to secure all off-premise connectivity, which requires dedicated Media Access Control security (MACSec) components. When combining security with the ongoing migration to 400GE links, the hyperscalers face the tough challenge of increased power consumption. Jericho2c+ addresses this challenge with integrated line-rate MACSec on all network interfaces, making it the ideal solution for data center interconnect, metro and core switches.
“In the past, router vendors had to choose between a flexible pipe with feature concurrency versus power efficient high-bandwidth devices,” said
Broadcom is committed to supporting a broad software ecosystem on top of Jericho2c+, including OEM’s and key Open Source initiatives. Broadcom has worked with its partners to enable SONiC support on 400G Jericho2c+ VOQ chassis-based systems.
Jericho2c+ and Broadcom’s Ramon fabric element empower the industry’s largest scale routing and switching solutions, with a combination of rich features and unmatched power efficiency, seamlessly integrating into existing Jericho2 and Ramon-based solutions, and significantly reducing time to market for large scale 400GE systems.
