More Ports - More Flexiblity

General Product Description

The APS Networks APS2156DG switch is a TOR switch for enterprise networks or security solutions using the P4 programming language. The unit enables enterprise Layer 2/3 switching across the 48x SFP28 ports and the 8x QSFP28 at line rate and supports 10/25/40/50 and 100Gb/s data rates.

The APS2156DG is designed for multi-Gig data rates which enable 100/1000Mb/s and 10Gb/s port speeds on 24 of the 48 SFP ports.

Combined with internal CPU Ethernet connectivity, a 4-core CPU processor, and optional PTP, the APS2156DG is ideal for the development of P4-enabled solutions whilst providing connectivity to servers and up-link networks.

Designed on Open Frameworks

APS Networks® APS2156DG is designed around open framework principles. The BMC is designed using the RunBMC Framework from Open Compute Project (OCP) running OpenBMC software whilst the APS Board Support Package enables the development of P4 applications using the Intel® P4 Studio SDE.

Use Cases

Time Synchronization Solution

Precision timing is increasingly important for high performance, low latency networks and applications requiring nanosecond timing accuracy.

The APS Networks® Synchronization Timing Solution has been designed to deliver the highest level of timing accuracy and provide precise time distribution over an Ethernet or IP network using our range of programmable switch products.

The 1-Step hardware solution provides profiles for standard PTP IEEE1588, Telecoms, Broadcast, OCP Datacenter and O-RAN requirements.

The combination of the Time Synchronization Solution with our programmable switch products enables Boundary and Transparent clock solutions where precision time is required which can be enhanced using the SyncE functionality if available on the network.
