Ruijie Newton 18000-X Switch Series (RG-N18000-X) is the next-generation high-performance core switches designed for cloud network, which tops the class with its zero-backplane design on the 100T switching platform. The RG-N18000-X Switch Series offers high-efficiency and high-stability switching services, and guarantees ten-year smooth network upgrades. 

The RG-N18000-X Series deploys an advanced hardware architecture design and is one of the world’s leading core switches with the highest specifications. The series adopts the CLOS orthogonal switching architecture and offers a maximum switching capacity of up to 461T per chassis. The RG-N18000-X Series offers forwarding rates of up to 5400Mbps per slot and supports 576 100GE, 576 40GE, 2304 10GE full line rate ports by one  chassis.

The RG-N18000-X Series adopts front-to-rear airflow design for heat dissipation which features a much higher heat dissipation efficiency with a much lower revolving speed, lower quantity of fans as well as lower noise level. The RG-N18000-X also makes use of energy-saving technology to minimize power consumption of the chassis.

The RG-N18000-X Series provides 2 models, RG-N18010-X and RG-N18018-X, to meet deployment needs of Internet data center and campus network data center.

Feature Highlights:

  • Ideal for ultra-large campus and data center networks
  • Ideal for high-performance computing with ultra-low latency
  • CLOS non-blocking architecture with up to 461T bandwidth per chassis
  • Scalable capacity for future expansion: up to 576 100GE, 576 40GE, 2304 10GE ports
  • Ready for future: support 100G Ethernet 

Zero Backplane New Architecture

Core switches with most powerful performance in the world,
dramatically increasing the data center capacity

First ever platform with a 100 Tbps switching capacity and zero backplane,
upgrading the core engine of the data center to a new level

Innovative energy-saving design for guaranteed quality

All-round virtualization ensuring on-demand network resource allocation work resource allocation

Core Switch with the Most Powerful
Performance in the World Dramatically Improving Data Center Capacity

The switch provides a maximum 178 Tbps overall switching capacity.

The 10.8 Tbps bandwidth of a single slot can be smoothly upgraded to 21.6 Tbps.

Rich interface types are provided to meet requirements of various access modes.

Line-rate line cards at the highest density in the industry are supported.

The port density is 20% higher than that of similar products in the industry.

A single card provides a 24 GB buffer for storing burst traffic of data centers, which is 33% higher than that of similar products in the industry.

The CLOS multi-level multi-plane switching architecture ensures data forwarding without blocking and provides continuous bandwidth upgrade and service support.

First ever platform with a 100 Tbps switching capacity and zero backplane, upgrading the core engine of the data center to a new level

Service line cards are directly connected to switch fabric modules,
so that data can be directly transmitted the switch fabric modules, which dramatically reduces the transmission loss.

The switch transmission efficiency and device performance are improved,
supporting smooth upgrade in the coming 10 years

Innovative Energy-Saving Design Ensuring Quality

  • Direct air vent for higher cooling efficiency
  • 30° internal bend for each service line card and 106%porosity of relative vertical plane for improved air intake volume
  • Counter rotary fans for improved heat dissipation efficiency and reduced noise
  • Top-level power supplies in the industry for 96% power conversion rate
  • No PHY chip on service line cards for board power consumption reduced by 5.63%

VSU Multiple-to-One

The VSU technology virtualizes a maximum of four physical core switches into one logical device. Uplinks are aggregated over ports across devices, ensuring load-balancing and improving the bandwidth utilization. The fault recovery time of switches, supervisor modules, and links is only 50 ms, ensuring high availability of services. After virtualization using the VSU, multiple devices can be managed in a unified manner, saving time on configuration management
