FS.COM, a high-speed communication solution provider for data centers, enterprises, and telecom networks, introduces a series of data center switches with speeds of 10G, 25G, 40G, 100G, and 400G, aiming to target data center networks with different sizes.

With the quick evolution of data center networking over the past years, higher-performance 10/25/100/400G leaf-spine typologies are introduced to solve the volume and velocity of emerging application architectures. On such a basis, FS, one of the leading high-speed communication solution providers, expands a series of data center leaf and spine switches to meet the demand for 10/25/40/100G and 400G switching.

These switch portfolios are high-performance leaf and spine switches designed for enterprise branch, campus, and data center networks. All the switches are equipped with the Broadcom chips and offer advanced features such as EVPN-VXLAN, MLAG, RoCE, and programmability, giving customers a tremendous amount of flexibility when building networks with speeds ranging from 10G all the way up to 400G.

The details of the main switches are as follows:

N9500-32D: offers 32 x 400G QSFP-DD ports that are compatible with multi-speed 25/40/100/200GbE, along with flexible L3 features and wire-speed performance. And it supports the installation of compatible network operating system software, such as SONiC, Open Network Linux (ONL), and Arrcus ArcOS.

N8560 series delivers a flexible combination of 10G/25G/40G/100G ports with rich Layer 3 features and advanced data center functions such as low latency, and zero packet loss performance for data center connectivity. And they support ansible, OpenFlow, NETCONF, etc. configuration and automation tools.

N8550 series brings flexible options of 10G/25G/40G/100Gb speed with advanced data center features such as EVPN-VXLAN, MLAG, and NETCONF. And these switches support various operating systems like SONiC, Open Network Linux (ONL), Pica8 Inc. PicOS™ OS, ideal for high availability data center network build.

NC8200 series are modular switches that offer fixed-configuration line cards with 25G, 40G, and 100G ports. They support rich features for data center connectivity such as VXLAN, MLAG, and EVPN-VXLAN, making them flexible choices for data centers and large enterprise networks.

As the volume of workloads and traffic continues to explode in data centers, it becomes more important for enterprises to build an extensible leaf-spine network capable of delivering terabits of capacity. FS data center switches are introduced to address such demands of users. Users can choose the most suitable switches and build a network any way they need.

Casa Systems joins LOT Network in a proactive measure against the threat of patent trolls

Casa Systems | June 15, 2022

Casa Systems, Inc. (Nasdaq: CASA), a leading provider of cloud-native software and physical technology solutions for wireless, cable and fixed broadband networks, today announced it has joined LOT Network, the international community of the world’s leading high-tech companies committed to protecting its members from costly litigation from patent assertion entities (PAEs, also known as “patent trolls”). An industry innovator for nearly 20 years, Casa Systems recognizes the threat that patent trolls can have on technology companies – where legal fees for taking a patent case through trial can cost millions of dollars, diverting valuable company resources away from core functions like R&D and product development. The company believes that a more cost-effective approach – like membership in LOT Network – will allow its team to focus on what matters most – building a culture of constant exploration and pioneering new paths forward in the industry. “We recognize that an ounce of prevention in these cases is worth millions of dollars,” said Timothy Rodenberger, General Counsel at Casa Systems. “LOT Network is a cost-effective way to protect our business from the high cost of PAE litigation. We’re pleased to join a community of leading technology companies in building a safer ecosystem for the telecommunications community through our efforts, and we appreciate the work that LOT Network is doing within the 5G community to reduce confusion around standard essential patents in that space.” LOT Network members agree that if, and only if, any member’s patent assets fall into the hands of a PAE, all the other members of the community receive a free license, thereby immunizing them against PAE litigation from those assets. At the same time, members retain all traditional uses of patents – including selling them or using them to sue other companies – including other LOT Network members. “Casa Systems is sending a strong signal to their customers and their business partners by joining LOT Network,” “By being proactive in reducing litigation threats, Casa Systems is also protecting others with whom they do business.” Ken Seddon, CEO at LOT Network About Casa Systems, Inc. Casa Systems, Inc. delivers the core-to-customer building blocks to speed 5G transformation with future-proof solutions and cutting-edge bandwidth for all access types.
