Since its 2016 introduction, SONiC has reshaped open networking. Initially adopted by the largest hyperscaler networks, in the past few years SONiC has added the features needed to support any and all the networks. Accelerating functionality is driving adoption of SONiC networking and the market is surging (per market analyst 650 Group).

Private and edge cloud networks require a common network operating system and community. SONiC has played a pivotal role in making this possible. In addition, delivering a high-quality, ready to deploy, SONiC solution requires a thriving community of committed ecosystem players working cohesively. Aviz, a SONiC leader, works very closely with the entire ecosystem to bring high-quality community SONiC solutions to customers for their entire network.

Today, Kevin Wollenweber (SVP/GM, Cisco Networking Data Center and Provider Connectivity) and I are thrilled to announce a partnership between Cisco and Aviz. This exciting collaboration is a pivotal moment for the SONiC market ensuring that all prospective customers can be confident of robust network deployments. This marks a milestone in making SONiC a mainstream network operating system (NOS). Our partnership provides a complete SONiC offering, enabling a high-quality experience for customers.

Cisco and Aviz are committed to simplifying the cloud journey for our customers. By combining the capability of industry-leading Cisco 8000 Series routers and an open, community-based SONiC distribution with Aviz’s professional SONiC support, we are providing flexible open networking solutions and services across data center use cases of all shapes and sizes. said Kevin Wollenweber, SVP/GM, Cisco Networking Data Center and Provider Connectivity.
