Cisco Silicon One

Meet the first unified silicon architecture for web scale and service provider networks.

Breakthrough innovation to power the Internet for the Future

Cisco Silicon One is the only unifying architecture enabling customers to deploy the best of breed silicon from top of rack switches all the way through the web scale data centers and across the service provider networks with a fully unified routing and switching portfolio.

Expanding the Cisco Silicon One portfolio

Leading the industry with 7nm 12.8Tbps, 6.4Tbps, and 3.2Tbps switching and routing silicon to enable the next wave of web scale and service provider networks.

One architecture

Cisco Silicon One delivers consistency in features, services, and telemetry across:

Markets

  • Service provider
  • Web scale provider

Form factors

  • Fixed
  • Modular chassis
  • Disaggregated chassis

Functions

  • Standalone processor

Cisco Silicon One powering network innovation

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.

One architecture. Unmatched capabilities.

Unmatched programmability, performance, flexibility, and efficiency.

Higher bandwidth

More network bandwidth than other routing silicon

Larger scale

Ready for massive internet scale

Better performance

More packets per second than other networking silicon

Endlessly programmable

Fully programmable for faster feature delivery and future-ready deployments

Lower power

Routing features, scale, and performance at better than switching power efficiency

Deeper buffers

Switching devices with fully shared on-die buffers and routing devices with seamless extension to large buffers 

One architecture. Multiple devices. No compromises.

Multiple devices under one architecture, each of them delivering best in class programmability, performance, buffering, scale, and power efficiency.
