ONF Names OpenFlow Test Partner in China
PALO ALTO, Calif. -- The Open Networking Foundation (ONF), a non-profit organization dedicated to accelerating the adoption of open Software-Defined Networking (SDN), announced Beijing Internet Institute (BII), a provider of IPv6- and SDN-based technology and services, as ONF’s first international certified conformance testing lab in Asia. In addition, BII became a member of ONF to foster deployment and commercialization of SDN and the OpenFlow™ protocol amongst China’s service provider, data center, and enterprise markets. “In support of ONF’s initiatives, we believe that the next generation of networking in China is SDN and the OpenFlow protocol,” said Liu Dong, director of BII. “Our goal is to help our service provider and enterprise users realize the benefits of this technology and demonstrate true conformance of SDN. We are honored to be named the second ONF-approved conformance testing center, as well as the first in Asia.”
The certified testing lab establishes conformance testing in China and provides SDN technical testing services to global clients. BII’s testing lab in China evaluates vendors’ networking products for interoperability, conformance, function, and performance. The company will expand its evaluation services by partnering with ONF to test SDN and OpenFlow conformance. The lab will also offer organizations the opportunity to receive OpenFlow certification of their products.
