Data Sheet

Penguin Computing® Arctica® switches are cost-effective Layer-2/Layer-3 capable top-of-rack switches, with models suited for aggregation and access layer roles. The latest Arctica 3200xlp model is based on a ‘merchant silicon’ platform – The Broadcom StrataXGS® Trident II.

Penguin Computing Arctica 3200xlp switches can be deployed in a top-of-rack role to support any mix of 10 and 40 GbE host and spine interconnections. An open selection of copper and optical transceivers are available, allowing user to customize the switch’s application. In an aggregation layer role, Arctica 3200xlp switches are capable of L2 and L3 routing protocols.

Penguin Computing offers the following software stacks: Cumulus® Linux® and CanonicalTM Ubuntu® with Broadcom® ICOS (Integrated Clouding Operating System). Cumulus Linux is the industry’s first true Linux network operating system with network-optimized kernel that supports Layer-2 and Layer-3 architectures. Canonical Ubuntu with Broadcom ICOS is a CLI-oriented network OS with the full Layer-2 and Layer-3 feature set of the Broadcom data plane. Arctica switches are available with Cumulus Linux or Broadcom ICOS preloaded, backed by hardware and software support options.

Switch Chassis
Arctica switches are available in two airflow orientations. For typical rack layouts with rear facing host I/O connectors "PSU to faceplate" airflow would be recommended.
