NEC Collaborates with Stanford, Georgia Tech, Raytheon BBN Technologies on OpenFlow Switching

Stanford University's Gates BuildingNEC is at the forefront of research and innovation in the field of OpenFlow networks, an open switching standard developed at Stanford University that enables a new generation of network control software.  Today, attendees at the GEC9 (GENI) conference in Washington, D.C., will be able to see a demonstration of OpenFlow switching conducted in partnership between NEC, Stanford, Geogia Tech and Raytheon BBN Technologies.

NEC now has in limited release it’s ProgrammableFlow switches, which are based on the OpenFlow standard and have been deployed in over 20 research organizations worldwide.

The OpenFlow project at Stanford is part of its Clean Slate Internet Design Program.

See how Cleveland State University migrated four aging communication systems into a single, SV8500 platform to enable the network administration staff the ability to view the entire campus communications system using UCE Manager. With the expansion of end user’s needs, the implementation of the infrastructure was important to the university’s communications systems. See the video.
