The Simple Solution for Complex Networks
Award-Winning High Performance – A powerful, hybrid, multi-layer switch. It can integrate into a legacy environment. Or it functions fully with OpenFlow-enabled benefits behind NEC’s ProgrammableFlow Controller. ProgrammableFlow SDN automates and simplifi es network administration for greater business agility, and provides a network-wide programmable interface for unifying the deployment and management of network services with the rest of IT infrastructure. This open network architecture separates the network control plane from the data plane – centralizing and streamlining network administration.
In today’s data center and cloud environment, new business demands and new innovations in compute infrastructure have increased the strains on data center networks. Economies of scale and improvements in governance are driving demand for IT infrastructure that can handle a variety of workloads. But building networks that enable these benefits is a challenge. Current network equipment lacks flexibility and responsiveness to dynamic business demands, making it difficult to provision and even harder to manage the multitenant networks that cloud services require.
