Edge-Core Networks delivers bare metal switches or hardware switches including a universal switchOS installer that allows for the automated loading of compatible switchOS software from third party software suppliers. The combination of bare-metal switches and independent switchOS software allows customers to deploy best-in-class hardware and software independently, eliminates lock-in to a single vendor, and lowers CAPEX through cost-effective hardware and software alternatives. Edge-Core offers high performance bare-metal data center switches for Top-of-Rack and Spine Network deployment. Edge-Core partners with Cumulus Network to allow customers to load Cumulus Linux switchOS for virtualized cloud networking and automated network infrastructures leveraging Linux provisioning and management tools.
