Edgecore Networks and Credo team up at Computex 2019


Taipei, Taiwan  – May 24, 2019 – Computex – Edgecore Networks, the leader in open networking and CREDO, a global innovation leader in Serializer-Deserializer (SerDes) technology which delivers high performance, low power connectivity solutions for 100G, 400G, and 800G port enabled networks today announced the companies will demonstrate 100G/400G port interoperability on a variety of Edgecore open networking platforms using Credo’s Active Electrical Cables (AEC).  These deterministic and persistent connections are ideal for the deployment of  the next generation of high capacity data center fabrics, internet exchanges, and high bandwidth service provider infrastructures with the flexibility and cost benefits of open networking.  The conference starts on Tuesday, May 28 at the Taipei Nangang Exhibition Center, with exhibits taking place May 28 through June 1.
“Credo is introducing our AECs as a new category of network connectivity to enable the rapid deployment next generation switch platforms while maintaining the existing low cost, performance optimized server infrastructure,” said Jeff Twombly, vice president of marketing and business development at Credo. “In addition to delivering fully deterministic, lower gauge, lightweight cabling solutions, we have introduced innovative speed-shifting in the AECs that allows for ease of port matching.”

“Targeting the enterprise, service provider, and data center market segments, Edgecore Networks continuously delivers innovative open networking solutions that enable network infrastructure providers to deploy services with increased flexibility, lower costs and greater control of SDN-managed infrastructure. We are excited to be working closely with Credo to validate the AECs in our industry leading open networking platform configurations,” said Matt Roman, Director of  Product Management at Edgecore. “Our customers will benefit from the robust, low cost, and deterministic connectivity provided by Credo’s AEC product portfolio.”

The 400G port to 400G port and 400G port to 4x100G port connectivity solutions will be on display on the show floor in the Edgecore Networks booth (Taipei, Nangang Exhibition Center Hall 2, booth #P0208).
