Why Leaf/Spine Networks are Taking Off

Unless you’ve been stranded on a deserted island, you’ve probably noticed that leaf/spine networks have started taking over data centers in the last few years. It’s no secret that people prefer scale-out over scale-up solutions, and for networking, the old scale-up approach was to use massive monolithic modular switches, a.k.a. Big Frickin’ Switches (BFS), whenever […]

Enabling Tomorrow’s Media Infrastructure Today!

The adoption of 4K and soon 8K video formats and the transition from Serial Digital Interface (SDI) to IP-based broadcasting drive the need for efficient, higher performance networking technologies that can stream more bits per second in real-time.
