Mellanox to Showcase Quagga L3 Stack on its Ethernet Silicon


Mellanox Technologies is planning to showcase its new Open Ethernet platforms at next week's Interop in Las Vegas.

The Open Ethernet demonstration will include Quagga L3 open source stack running on top of Mellanox’s SwitchX based 10/40/56GbE switch systems.

Mellanox describes its Open Ethernet initiative as an alternative approach to traditional closed-code Ethernet switches, providing customers with full flexibility and freedom to custom-design their data center in order to optimize utilization, efficiency and overall return-on-investment.

"Our demonstration with Quagga highlights the power of Open Ethernet to provide the capability to fully customize open source software packages on top of Mellanox 40 and 56GbE switches, enabling our customers to add differentiation and competitive advantages in their networking infrastructure while reducing cost," said Gilad Shainer, vice president of marketing at Mellanox Technologies.
