Carrier Grade Disaggregated IP/MPLS
Network Operating System
Save money using Broadcom DNX-based white box hardware
Are You Facing These Challenges in Your Wide Area Network?
- Are you tired of dealing with complex and expensive software feature licensing schemes?
- Do you feel like you’re overpaying for incumbent vendor products?
- Are network expansion costs impacting profits?
- Are you frustrated by vendor lock-in?
- Do you feel stuck trying to design differentiated network services?
- Are you worried about making the correct purchasing decision?
Use a Common NOS Across All Broadcom DNX-based White Box Hardware
As a Communications Service Provider, expanding coverage and adding services usually requires significant investment in hardware and software. With a disaggregated network operating system, you can use Broadcom DNX-based white box hardware and substantially reduce CAPEX.
ExaNOS is carrier grade and based on a cloud architecture. You simply select your white box hardware from one of several hardware manufacturers, and use ExaNOS across the network.

Single Software Throughout the Network
With ExaNOS, you have the freedom to choose a routing solution that exactly fits your requirements and budget. ExaNOS offers you a programmable interface to connect your applications with the network and enables you to seamlessly scale from access to core.
ExaNOS is a field-proven, high-scale, full-blown IP/MPLS NOS for most access, aggregation, edge/PE, and network peering applications. The cloud-based software architecture scales from 300G to 1,300T, and supports a wide range of features and protocols.
Easily Onboard New Services
Communications Service Providers can easily add third party applications, such as telemetry, 5G service assurance, DDoS mitigation, PON access system, and more.
New services can coexist alongside ExaNOS, enabling you to quickly and easily generate new revenue and save money.
Run Third Party Applications
The ExaNOS architecture allows third party applications to run over the operating system in two different modes:
Virtual Machine (VM)
In VM mode, the application runs in native mode over the operating system and is adapted to the white box environment.
Container mode enables any type of application to run over the operating system without the need for any adaptation.
Using a pluggable OLT module, you can provide a PON access solution coexisting with L2VPNs, L3VPNs, VPWS, and VPLS services.
You can harness the power of telemetry to: gain deep insights into the network, identify anomalies, and fix issues before they impact your customers.
ExaNOS includes an open API (NETCONF/YANG), which enables automation and lifecycle management. In addition, ExaNOS includes a state-of-the-art policy language and common programmability for control plane and data plane policies (routing protocol, ACL, QoS). The result is a powerful, yet simplified interface for advanced configuration.
Break Vendor Lock-in
The disaggregation between hardware and software is critical in breaking vendor lock-in for Communication Service Providers and enabling innovation in the network. ExaNOS can run on any Broadcom DNX-based chipset white box architecture. With ExaNOS, you can select your hardware vendor from a variety of off-the-shelf solutions.
Specifically designed for carriers, ExaNOS is feature-rich, interoperable, and high-scale. It also supports multiple hardware platforms from small form factor to chassis-based solutions with built-in redundancy and unified configuration interfaces (NETCONF/Yang and CLI).
Exaware partners with several hardware vendors to empower the revolution toward merchant-based routing platforms.
With third-party applications, ExaNOS opens the network to a full ecosystem of innovative services that co-exist alongside ExaNOS within the same Broadcom DNX-based white box router.
For example, you can embed DDoS mitigation in the router itself to block in real time the most aggressive attacks directly at the peering point. Harness the power of telemetry to gain deep insights into the network, identify anomalies, and fix issues before they impact your customers.
Field Proven Routing Stack
Our years of operational experience worldwide with major Tier 1 service providers, combined with our strong expertise in networking, mean you can trust us to deliver any application with scale and reliability:
