Big Switch Touts Open SDN

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- Big Switch Networks, who is bringing the benefits of virtualization and cloud architecture to enterprise networks, today unveiled the three pillars around its Open SDN™ architecture as it celebrates its two-year anniversary.

"SDN has the promise to change the networking landscape, helping drive innovation and increasing business agility and operational efficiency of the network," said Joe Skorupa, VP Distinguished Analyst at Gartner. "However to reach its full potential, it must integrate with the existing ecosystem and standards."

"OpenFlow and SDN have been gaining significant momentum and, as customers adopt these technologies, it is critical they look for open standards, open APIs and open source to ensure the SDN solution they implement is future-proof," said Guido Appenzeller, Co-Founder and CEO of Big Switch Networks. "Big Switch Networks has been at the forefront of the OpenFlow standard creation, offered enterprise-grade open source SDN solutions to the community and continuously expanded its ecosystem of partners. Openness will be core to SDN success and, by relentlessly delivering it in our Open SDN™ architecture, we plan to stay ahead of the market."
