Meet the first unified silicon architecture for web scale, enterprise, and service provider networks.
Cisco Silicon One is the only unifying architecture enabling customers to deploy the best-of-breed silicon from Top of Rack (TOR) switches all the way through the web scale data centers and across the service provider and enterprise networks with a fully unified routing and switching portfolio.
A single architecture which provides the highest bandwidth routing and web scale switching silicon in the industry, enabling true convergence without compromise.
Cisco Silicon One delivers consistency in features, services, and telemetry across:
With a unified silicon architecture, you can accelerate innovation and services. Network engineers can plan, qualify, and deploy network architecture more rapidly and simply without having to worry about the compatibility of different systems based on distinct silicon architectures for each network function.
Unparalleled programmability, performance, flexibility, and efficiency.
More network bandwidth than other routing silicon
Ready for massive internet scale
More packets per second than other networking silicon
Fully programmable for faster feature delivery and future-ready deployments
Routing features, scale, and performance at better-than-switching power efficiency
Switching devices with fully shared on-die buffers and routing devices with seamless extension to large buffers
Multiple devices under one architecture, each of them delivering best in class programmability, performance, buffering, scale, and power efficiency.
