Data center network elements are typically optimized for high speed switching. But there are several key use cases for IP routing in a data center or campus in which a large number of IP routes are required. Examples include internal segmentation, data center interconnect (DCI), and Internet routing.
Accordingly, Extreme Networks has developed OptiScale™ for Internet Routing to support Internet routing scale in data center platforms. OptiScale for Internet Routing delivers an efficient solution for Internetscale border routing (can support up to 1.7M IP routes) and thus provides investment protection for the future. The first application for this technology is at the enterprise border.
