Plugfest 2021 Logo

On July 14, 2021, the SONiC community will come together for a unique virtual event — SONiC Plugfest 2021. Working together with Aviz Networks, Keysight has assembled an advisory board to help define test requirements and to evaluate SONiC performance.

Participants include key hyperscalers, ASIC makers, original design manufacturers (ODMs), and network equipment manufacturers (NEMs). Our vendor-neutral lab has tested forwarding performance, control plane conformance, congestion/buffer management, and more.

What is SONiC?

SONiC, the Linux of networking, is now an OCP project with growing ecosystem support from ASIC vendors, NEMs, and extended ecosystem participants providing management and application tools. With support from many of the industry’s most prominent leaders and well over four million ports in production, SONiC is a real and maturing option.
