NEC Enhances OpenFlow-based SDN Fabric
TOKYO -- NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701) today announced enhancements to its software defined networking product family, ProgrammableFlow. These enhancements allow enterprises and cloud operators to automate provisioning of high performance network services. Included in the announcement is the release of UNIVERGE PF Series ProgrammableFlow Controller 3.0, the industry’s only OpenFlow controller that enables end-to-end quality of service (QoS) design and network management capabilities that support multiple software defined networks from a single console or application programming interface (API).
With version 3.0, NEC is redefining the role of the network from focusing primarily on connectivity to an intelligent, unified, and open fabric that enables dynamic service provisioning and scalable cloud solutions within a multilayer high performance fabric.
“These enhancements to NEC’s UNIVERGE PF Series meet the growing need for virtual networks using OpenFlow technologies in support of cloud data centers and business networks,” said Hiroyuki Watanabe, General Manager, Global Solutions, NEC. “Additionally, they satisfy the demand for lower installation and operational costs while providing greater security and higher quality.”
