World’s Leading Campus Network Core
●CLOS Non-blocking Architecture
Ruijie RG-N18000 Series deploys the advanced CLOS multi-plane, multi-stage architecture, which achieves complete separation of the forwarding and control planes. With independent fabric engines and control engines, it ensures all ports are running at full line rate in a non-blocking manner. The solution continues to strengthen bandwidth upgrade and business supporting capacities.
Advanced CLOS Architecture
Using an orthogonal design for service modules and fabric engines, the cross-board traffic is transmitted to the fabric engines through the orthogonal connector. Ruijie RG-N18000 Series achieves zero wiring for backplane with minimized transmission loss and signal degradation. It can also improve internal transmission efficiency of the switch.
●Scalable Performance for Future Development
Ruijie RG-N18000 Series supports high-density 40GE and 100GE Ethernet ports to meet the evolving requirements of cloud computing data center in the coming decade.
The RG-N18000 Series is market leading in supporting line-rate packet forwarding. All boards including the one with the highest density support 64-byte packet forwarding at line rate. The switches thereby ensure high-speed forwarding with zero packet loss in large-scale data center.
The RG-N18000 Switches offer ultra-low latency up to 0.5μs to support high-speed transmission.
The series sustains a huge distributed cache design to achieve 200ms caching capacity. This feature fulfills spontaneous traffic requirements for data centers, high-performance network and so on.
Virtual Switch Unit 3.0 (VSU)
The series supports the Virtual Switch Unit 3.0 (VSU). The technology can virtualize multiple physical devices into one logical unit, which largely minimizes the number of network nodes and reduce administrator workload. Superior 50~200ms link failover ensures smooth and uninterrupted transmission of key services. The RG-N18000 Series supports cross-device link aggregation for easy double uplink to server/switch. The network can effectively maximize bandwidth investment return.
Virtual Switch Device (VSD)
Ruijie RG-N18000 Series delivers industry’s first 1:12 virtualization. One device can be virtualized into multiple virtual units. Hence, every virtual unit has a unique configuration management interface, independent hardware allocation (e.g. storage, TCAM and hardware forwarding table). All the features support restart with no effects on other virtual machines. Users can realize network resources allocation based on different needs. Resources of the core switch can hence be shared with other domains and users.
Benefits of 1-to-12 Virtualization
Layer 2 Generic Routing Encapsulation (L2-GRE)
With the international L2-GRE standard, the RG-N18000 switches break the geographical boundaries to achieve data center L2 communication. Data center resources at different locations can be centrally managed and allocated.
Software-Defined Network (SDN) & OpenFlow
Software Defined Networking is an emerging network architecture where network control is decoupled from forwarding and is directly programmable.
●Decoupling of control plane and forwarding plane → hardware / network unified abstraction & virtualization, ease of independent development
●Centralized control & distributed forwarding → convert the distributed protocol problem into algorithm problem
●Open programming interface → softwarization of hardware, programmable devices, scalable network features & higher flexibility
●Hardware Switching Devices:
Ruijie Newton 18000 series platforms will fully support OpenFlow modular hardware switching
●SDN Controller RG-IONC
Ruijie Intelligent OpenFlow Network System is a X86 hardware platform, which fully supports OpenFlow and SNMP2.0, providing the SDN control service modules below:
○Switch/host/topology management, L2/L3 communication
○Traffic editing/path calculation/static routing/DHCP
○MPLS L3 VPN service
○Virtual tenant network service
RG-N18000 Series Offers a Comprehensive SDN Solution
High Reliability & Energy-saving Design
Redundant design of the RG-N18000 Series key components delivers excellent protection: control engine 1+1 redundancy, fabric engine N+1 redundancy, fan N+M redundancy and power module N+M redundancy. All redundant components are hot-swappable to enhance the reliability and availability of the device to the maximum extent. Hot patch is also supported to enable online upgrade of devices.
Support GR for OSPF/IS-IS/BGP and BFD for VRRP/OSPF/BGP4/ISIS/ISISv6/MPLS/static routing to enable the fast fault detection mechanism of different protocols, which minimized the fault detection time to less than 50ms.
The RG-N18000 Series adopts 40nm chip technology, more energy efficient than the traditional 90nm and 65nm. Multi-core CPU supports dynamic power management with all fiber ports adopting non-PHY design to reduce power consumption. All Ethernet ports support the Energy-Efficient Ethernet (EEE) standard to save power under light load.
The internal system is designed for low voltage power supply with high-efficiency modular power to form a more efficient power supply system. The smart fan supports 256 speed modulations with precise temperature control, energy saving and noise control. The device can function at high temperature for a long period of time or in harsh environment for significant savings on energy consumption by air conditioning.
Abundant Energy Conservation Features
