Jan 30, 2012 (Datamonitor via COMTEX) --
IBM, a provider of computer hardware, software, and NEC Corporation of America have announced that innovators are adopting OpenFlow-based networking to transform their networks using a new solution provided by IBM and NEC. These organizations are deploying the IBM and NEC standards-based OpenFlow solution to power networks, manage massive amounts of information and deliver new services.
Examples of OpenFlow innovators using this high performance commercial solution include Stanford University, Tervela and Selerity Corp. Stanford will deploy IBM and NEC's solution in a parallel network to test OpenFlow's applicability to the university's production environment. Selerity, provider of ultra-low latency event data, will employ IBM and NEC's OpenFlow solution to accelerate real-time decision-making for financial markets. OpenFlow enables organizations to modify, control and manage dynamic physical and virtual networks, the company said.
"IBM's investment in OpenFlow reflects the market reality that the data center network is vital to business, driving new ways for users to control the functionality of networks to meet application requirements more simply, flexibly and intelligently," said IBM Fellow and CTO of IBM System Networking Renato Recio.
