ONIE management or SMB switch

Open Networking

Network connectivity is rapidly moving to software defined virtual and layered architectures. To take advantage of the added flexibility, automation and analytics needs to be tied more closely to the network OS. Lenovo embraces the change by offering switches designed to work with third-party operating systems, providing customers more hardware choice while supporting an OS that is best suited for their business.

The ThinkSystem NE0152TO RackSwitch is typically used as an out-of-band data center management switch or in an SMB network. Its open networking design supports a seamless OS implementation for consistent operations, even at 1GbE speeds.

Cumulus Linux and NetQ, the industry leader in stand-alone third-party switch operating systems, is supported and available as an option to the Lenovo ONIE switches. Watch for additional OS options in the near future.
