Hi folks,
the Broadcom Tomahawk (1) does not support RIOT. Broadcom already released Tomahawk 2 and 3 ASICs as well as Trident 3. I can't find any switches with these ASICs available. Does somebody know when switches with these ASICs and Cumlulus Linux support will be released?

Hi Pony, the Tomahawn 2&3 ASICs will be available in 4.x. There may be a Trident3 switch ready sooner. The Mellanox 27xx switches can do 100G RIOT today.

Also, to be clear, Tomahawk 2 and 3 are announced switch ASIC series.  They aren't yet in production.   Trident 3 is just sampling now, or perhaps in early production.
