Mr. Greg Waite, CEO of InventionShare, announced the release of AcceleRoute’s new energy efficient, no latency network of multiple switch planes for multi-national data centers.
The AcceleRoute invention portfolio is nine invention families comprised of 19 issued US patents and 11 applications. The CTO is very credible, with over 100 patents filed and significant industry experience at Nortel.AcceleRoute addresses all the key drivers for data center evolution, namely performance, throughput and lower energy costs. A hundred per cent of control traffic and 80% of data traffic has only one hop; there is less network congestion and complexity; it is easier to manage and expand; and there is better utilization of ports and, importantly, much less power consumption and better overall performance. The technology can be implemented on a single or multiple router design as a data center or in a data center and co-exist with current technology.
AcceleRoute’s new energy efficient, no latency network of multiple switch planes is part of AcceleRoute’s third invention family and targets a large-scale data center or a network of continental coverage (4000 access nodes or so), providing a switching system that scales to a capacity of tens of thousands of terabits per second (Tbps). Multiple switch planes, each having meshed bufferless (preferably fast optical) switches, interconnect source nodes to sink nodes in a pattern which minimizes processing effort and requisite switching hardware. The components of the switching system may be localized in a data center or spread across a continent.
The connectivity pattern of source nodes and sink nodes to the switch planes is devised so that each pair of a source node and a sink node connects only once to a common switch. Upstream wavelength channels from each source node connect to different switch planes in a manner which ensures orthogonal connectivity of the source nodes to the bufferlessswitches, where a set of source nodes connecting to any switch and another set of source nodes connecting to any other switch of any switch plane have, at most, one source node in common. This property results in creating a path from any source node to any sink node traversing one switch.
Mr. Waite said, “A data center or a continental-coverage network of a capacity of 80 Pbps can be realized with these multiple switches; this capacity is larger than the projected capacity of all current designs and is a significant breakthrough as all the control data and the bulk of payload data are transferred through a single switch plane. We have this patent available now for those companies that want to produce a totally new unique architecture for switches and routers that can help to reduce power consumption, increase capacity – that want a less complex design and are looking for higher throughput, no queuing and less latency which all lead to less processing time and processing costs.”
InventionShare is interested in partnering exclusively with one major company or a consortium. The patents can be purchased and InventionShare is interested in an outright portfolio purchase with a modest carried interest in sub-licensing programs.
