ZTE Launches the World's Largest Capacity Data Centre Switches; The BigMatrix 9900 supports switching capacity of up to 84.48Tand is designed for large cloud computing and big data deployments
(M2 PressWIRE Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) Shenzhen, China - ZTE Corporation ("ZTE") (H share stock code: 0763.HK / A share stock code: 000063.SZ), a publicly-listed global provider of telecommunications equipment, network solutions and mobile devices, has released the BigMatrix 9900 series, the world's largest capacity data centre switches.
The BigMatrix 9900 product family, designed for large cloud computing and big data scenarios, helps customers achieve higher-density deployment in data centres. Each single slot can support up to 144 10G ports, 36 40G ports, or 12 100G ports. The BigMatrix 9900 series comprises four models, the 9916, 9912, 9908, and 9904, with each unit supporting a maximum switching capacity of 84.48T. The BigMatrix 9900 models meet the requirements for service oriented architecture (SOA) systems.
For big data systems, the BigMatrix 9900 enables customers to extract unstructured and non-relevant data from existing databases. The BigMatrix 9900 has a modular design, and can be used to build a super-resilient non-blocking bi-directional forwarding platform with 1.4P (1,440T) of switching capacity in Fat-Tree mode.
The BigMatrix 9900 is an important component of ZTE's integrated cloud management solution. With the unique "turbulence C" air tunnel feature for improved cooling efficiency, as well as an advanced ZTE ROS 5.0.1 operation system that separates software protocol layers, the BigMatrix 9900 lays a foundation for the speedy deployment of big data services.
The BigMatrix 9900 is packed with cloud computing data centre features and can implement virtual clusters of four devices and support eight virtual devices. It conforms to cloud resource pool requirements, supports TRILL L2 multipathing and meets L2 networking needs in existing data centres. With the fibre channel over ethernet (FCoE) and data centre bridging (DCB) protocols, the BigMatrix 9900 can meet the needs of data centres in a three-in-one system for storage, computing and management. Finally, to avoid congestion caused by burst traffic and to provide lossless data patching, the BigMatrix 9900 is designed to implement the distributed super-large buffer concept, supporting up to 120ms data buffering in 100G Ethernet wire-speed application for robust and reliable deployment.
"The ZTE BigMatrix 9900 is our flagship switch," said ZTE Senior Vice President Xu Ming. "Supporting smooth upgrading to 200T super-large capacity, the BigMatrix 9900 helps protect customer investment and satisfies future service needs simultaneously."
