Carrier Grade Disaggregated IP/MPLS
Network Operating System (NOS)

Save money using Broadcom DNX-based white box hardware

Are You Facing These Challenges in Your Wide Area Network?

  • Are you tired of dealing with complex and expensive software feature licensing schemes?
  • Do you feel like you’re overpaying for incumbent vendor products?
  • Are network expansion costs impacting profits?
  • Are you frustrated by vendor lock-in?
  • Do you feel stuck trying to design differentiated network services?
  • Are you worried about making the correct purchasing decision?

Use a Common NOS Across All Broadcom DNX-based White Box Hardware


As a Communications Service Provider, expanding coverage and adding services usually requires significant investment in hardware and software. With a disaggregated network operating system, you can use Broadcom DNX-based white box hardware and substantially reduce CAPEX.

ExaNOS is carrier grade and based on a cloud architecture. You simply select your white box hardware from one of several hardware manufacturers, and use ExaNOS across the network.

Break Vendor Lock-in

The disaggregation between hardware and software is critical in breaking vendor lock-in for Communication Service Providers and enabling innovation in the network. ExaNOS can run on any Broadcom DNX-based chipset white box architecture. With ExaNOS, you can select your hardware vendor from a variety of off-the-shelf solutions.

Specifically designed for carriers, ExaNOS is feature-rich, interoperable, and high-scale. It also supports multiple hardware platforms from small form factor to chassis-based solutions with built-in redundancy and unified configuration interfaces (NETCONF/Yang and CLI).

Exaware partners with several hardware vendors to empower the revolution toward merchant-based routing platforms.

Open Networking

With third-party applications, ExaNOS opens the network to a full ecosystem of innovative services that co-exist alongside ExaNOS within the same Broadcom DNX-based white box router.

For example, you can embed DDoS mitigation in the router itself to block in real time the most aggressive attacks directly at the peering point. Harness the power of telemetry to gain deep insights into the network, identify anomalies, and fix issues before they impact your customers.
