DriveNets moves the needle on disaggregation with new partner ecosystem that includes UfiSpace and Edgecore

By announcing the white box vendors, DriveNets is showing that it’s getting down to the brass tacks of creating an open ecosystem for disaggregation using flexible software and lower-cost white boxes. White boxes and disaggregation also hold the promise of breaking up vendor lock-in by traditional integrated vendor offerings.

DriveNets has deployed Broadcom’s merchant silicon Jericho2 chipset on its routing software that supports packet-forwarding white boxes and also supports Broadcom’s Ramon chip.

“DriveNets is primarily focused on a scale-out architecture for the service providers, providing an elastic platform that serves to replace the existing proprietary routers from carrier core to access to edge. With their disaggregated architecture, we’re seeing the possibility of enormous scale without relying on a proprietary and traditional chassis approach.
