DPX17000 Series

Network connectivity is of paramount significance at the very beginning of network construction. However, given the ever-increasing network size and diversified business categories, providing high performance cloud computing capability on the basis of network connectivity while ensuring a secure and controlled multi-service environment has drawn greater attention from users. In response, DPtech launched the DPX17000 Series next generation deep service core switches, designed for large secure networks and cloud data centers.

Based on DPtech’s core technologies including APP-X hardware architecture, ConPlat operating system and APP-ID application and threat signature database, the DPX17000 Series uses a flexible switching architecture with separated control plane and forwarding plane to meet 40G and 100G high-density interface expansion requirements through a 100G platform design. Supporting multiple data center features, it realizes deep integration of network and service, providing enterprises users with next generation network infrastructure that is high-speed, intelligent and reliable.
