Modern software architecture
The performance of a routing solution is mainly driven by 2 factors:
- The architecture of the Network Operating System
- The performance of the hardware
ExaNOS, based on a cloud architecture, offers a Unified Routing Solution that supports hyperscale networking across all network applications. As simplicity is key to operational efficiency, 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 a common programmability for Control Plane and Data Plane Policies (Routing Protocol, ACL, QoS), giving you a powerful, yet simplified interface for advanced configuration.
The disaggregation between hardware and software is critical in breaking vendor lock-in for service providers and enabling innovation in the network.
ExaNOS can run on any Broadcom DNX-based chipset whitebox architecture. It enables service providers to choose their hardware vendor and match their actual requirements to 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).
In fact, Exaware partners with several hardware vendors to empower the revolution toward merchant-based routing platforms.
Our Unique Architecture
ExaNOS opens up the network to a full ecosystem of innovative services, through third-party applications, that co-exist alongside with ExaNOS within the same whitebox Router.
Think about DDoS mitigation, embedded 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, to identify anomalies and fix issues before they impact your customers.
And this is only a small example of a new world of endless possibilities.
As simplicity and automation are key to operational efficiency, ExaVIEW, Exaware’s network management system enables Automation and Lifecycle Management via Open API (NETCONF/YANG).
ExaVIEW is a vendor agnostic monitoring and provisioning system that provides a clear and accurate view of the network elements and services in real time.
ExaNOS includes a state-of-the-art policy language, and a common programmability for Control Plane and Data Plane Policies (Routing Protocol, ACL, QoS), giving you a powerful, yet simplified interface for advanced configuration.
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:
- Mobile Backhaul
- Cell-site Gateway
- Aggregation & Provider Edge
- Internet Peering
- Data Center Gateway
ExaNOS powers a brand new, cloud-based core network architecture, in essence virtualizing the traditional, hard to upgrade, expensive and power-hungry chassis from legacy vendors.
With ExaNOS, you can tailor your network to your requirements and scale easily. ExaNOS can be deployed from a small mobile Disaggregated Cell Site Gateway router, all the way up to the Disaggregated Distributed Chassis (DDC).
Ideal also for Access, Aggregation and Peering
with capacities starting at 64G and up to 1,300T, including
full redundancy for carrier grade availability.
ExaNOS DDC solution is based on the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) DOR (Disaggregated Open Router) project.
With DDC, you can choose your hardware that best fits your needs, to provide additional capacity in a granular manner, with higher resiliency and flexibility.
