Title
(EN) LOGICAL ROUTER COMPRISING DISAGGREGATED NETWORK ELEMENTS
(FR) ROUTEUR LOGIQUE COMPRENANT DES ÉLÉMENTS DE RÉSEAU DÉSAGRÉGÉS
Abstract
(EN)
A logical router includes disaggregated network elements that function as a single router and that are not coupled to a common backplane. The logical router includes spine elements and leaf elements implementing a network fabric with front panel ports being defined by leaf elements. Control plane elements program the spine units and leaf to function a logical router. The control plane may define operating system interfaces mapped to front panel ports of the leaf elements and referenced by tags associated with packets traversing the logical router. Redundancy and checkpoints may be implemented for a route database implemented by the control plane elements. The logical router may include a standalone fabric and may implement label tables that are used to label packets according to egress port and path through the fabric.

Un routeur logique comprend des éléments de réseau désagrégés qui fonctionnent comme un seul routeur et qui ne sont pas couplés à un fond de panier commun. Le routeur logique comprend des éléments de colonne vertébrale et des éléments de feuille mettant en oeuvre une structure de réseau avec des ports de panneau avant définis par des éléments de feuille. Des éléments de plan de commande programment les unités de colonne vertébrale et la feuille pour faire fonctionner un routeur logique. Le plan de commande peut définir des interfaces de système d'exploitation mappées sur des ports de panneau avant des éléments de feuille et référencées par des étiquettes associées à des paquets traversant le routeur logique. La redondance et les points de contrôle peuvent être mis en oeuvre pour une base de données d'itinéraire mise en oeuvre par les éléments de plan de commande. Le routeur logique peut comprendre une structure autonome et peut mettre en oeuvre des tables d'étiquettes qui sont utilisées pour étiqueter des paquets selon un port de sortie et un trajet à travers la structure.
