A 48-Port 1GbE Switch, Suited for Out-of-Band Networks

Arctica 4804ip Network Switch

The Penguin Computing® Arctica® 4804ip is a cost-effective 48 port 1GbE Layer 2+ network switch in a compact 1U form factor, suited for data center Out-Of-Band (OOB) networks, such as IPMI. The Arctica 4804ip switch provides 48 10-BaseT/100-BaseTX/1000-BaseT ports and 4 1G/10G SFP+ ports. The Arctica 4804ip switch implements an x86-based control plane for easier integration of Linux and OpenStack automation tools and comes ready to use, pre-installed with Cumulus® RMP™ (Rack Management Platform) software. Arctica network switches are white box switches, offering flexibility and customization. Cumulus RMP The Cumulus RMP is a network operating system solution that enables out-of-band management use cases. It provides an open platform for customers and system integrators to use as is or build rack management applications on top. Cumulus RMP shares the same architecture, foundation and user experience as Cumulus® Linux®, with a smaller feature set designed specifically for the out-of-band management needs of the rack. Because Cumulus RMP is a true Linux distribution, it can be automated and managed using the same Linux tools employed to automate and manage switches running Cumulus Linux as well as Linux servers.
