Calient Adds OpenFlow Support

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- CALIENT Technologies, Inc., the global leader for photonic switching technology, today announced a new application programming interface (API) for OpenFlow on its S320 optical circuit switch.

Together with an OpenFlow controller, the new API allows the S320 to reconfigure datacenter networks to optimize high-capacity data flows at the optical layer and to function as part of an integrated packet-circuit switched software-defined network (SDN).

The OpenFlow API runs on the S320’s MEMS Switching Module (MSM), a high-availability switching and control subsystem with redundant control processors and a Linux-based operating system.
