Recently, Facebook revealed their new networking switch, "Wedge", at the GigaOm Structure tech conference in the end of June. It is a new top-of-rack networking switch. They also unveiled their new Linux-based operating software for that switch, FBOSS. The Wedge and FBOSS allow for a new level of automation, visibility, and control in the operation of the network by breaking down the hardware and software components of the network even further. With this new reveal, speculation is circling about how this will impact Cisco and the other networking vendors.
