ONS 2014: 6 SDN Solutions to Watch - Page 2
Vendors gathered on the Open Networking Summit expo floor to showcase software defined networking solutions. Here are six that caught our eye.
Can legacy hardware truly deliver on the potential of SDN? Ottawa, Ontario-based Corsa Technology doesn't think so. One of Enterprise Networking Planet's Five Networking Startups to Watch in 2014, Corsa debuted two native OpenFlow 1.3+ data planes, the DP6420 and the DP6440. Corsa claims its hardware addresses the scalability and functionality limitations of legacy hardware by providing flow-based forwarding "with multiple flow tables capable of processing millions of flows," according to a company statement. Programmable and reconfigurable, Corsa's forwarding planes are also designed for easy evolution to keep up with changing OpenFlow standards and SDN use cases.
