Arrcus VDR

Industry’s first massively scalable, virtualized, distributed routing platform

Introducing Arrcus VDR: The Virtualized Distributed Router

Experience single point of control and management and open, standards-based programmatic APIs


Scale your network from 4Tbps (40x100G) to 768Tbps (7680x100G) -10x the scale of a traditional chassis


Common architecture. Single software (ArcOS). Deploy anywhere in the network – core, access, edge, metro, aggregation, etc.

Discover the economics of a hyperscale network

The Arrcus VDR solution transforms the monolithic chassis into a distributed system that can scale to thousands of 100G and 400G ports while eliminating the lifecycle management tax associated with the legacy chassis-based solutions. This offers the foundation for providers and enterprises to build an open and a profitable network
