Rockport Networks Switchless Network Architecture
Data center networking startup Rockport Networks emerged from stealth mode in 2021 with commercial availability of its switchless network architecture that can provide customers with the performance and scalability necessary for demanding computing workloads, such as high-performance computing technologies, artificial intelligence and machine learning. Rockport Networks said its switchless offering can deliver an average of 28 percent reduction in workload completion times under load and a 3X decrease in end-to-end latency compared with traditional networks.
