    Interface Masters presents Tahoe 2728, a semi-modular 1U switch appliance based on Broadcom’s Trident 3 switch fabric and managed by an Intel x86 control plane.

    This semi-modular appliance supports two rear-facing I/O bays and can be upgraded with either an off-the-shelf Intel based offload processing module or a 100G port based module. Additional rear-facing I/O modules can be developed based on your design requirements.

    In standard configuration, Tahoe 2728 supports twenty-eight (28) ports of 100/40G QSFP28, eight (8) ports of 25G SFP28 and two (2) ports of 1/10G SFP+. Additional port configurations can be developed.

    Software configurations include white box with ONIE and a complete SDK tool set for custom development. OpenSwitch support is currently in development. Open Flow and software partner solutions available.
