ONS 2014: 6 SDN Solutions to Watch - Page 3
Vendors gathered on the Open Networking Summit expo floor to showcase software defined networking solutions. Here are six that caught our eye.
At the heart of any SDN implementation is the switch, and several vendors were on hand at ONS 2014 to make the case for theirs. The Open Networking Foundation's first Canadian member, OpenFlow-based switch vendor NoviFlow demonstrated their new OpenFlow Experimenter feature. Designed to assist in automation, policy, compliance, and security operations within software defined networks, OpenFlow Experimenter enables L4-L7 deep packet inspection (DPI) and flow management. NoviFlow demonstrated the functionality on its NoviSwitch 1248, which supports OpenFlow 1.3. NoviFlow also announced a distribution agreement with South Korean SDN solutions vendor NAIM Networks.
