Traditional networks are inflexible, expensive and simply can’t scale efficiently to meet the quickly evolving demands of fast growing usage such as video streaming, cloud computing, cybersecurity and the Internet-of-Things. NoviFlow delivers fully programmable high-performance forwarding planes, which is why Tier 1 network operators, cloud providers, and enterprises from all over the globe have chosen to deploy NoviFlow solutions.
NoviFlow offers high-performance, fully programmable SD-WAN networking products featuring our NoviWare® Network Operating System (NOS), which unlocks the capabilities of high speed, carrier-grade hardware for advanced networking and cybersecurity functionality. Our NoviSwitch® products enable customers to deliver high-value services up to ten times faster and perform cybersecurity detection and mitigation directly in the forwarding plane, saving cost, increasing network reliability, reducing latency and operating costs.
NoviFlow’s switching solutions have been implemented using network processors (NPs), which have long been recognized as providing both superior packet processing performance and unparalleled versatility and upgradability through software programming. The use of NPs also allows NoviFlow to develop new capabilities and release new versions of their switches in a matter of two to three months, as opposed to the typical development cycle of up to 2 years for ASIC based switches.
In addition to supporting the latest releases of OpenFlow, NoviFlow switches offer advanced customization capabilities including support for the OpenFlow Experimenter interface to deliver capabilities beyond those listed in the OpenFlow specification including:
– L2-L7 matching, packet processing and flow management
– Hash on OpenFlow fields for header AND content-based load balancing
– Highly anticipated OpenFlow 1.5 Copy-Field action also supported on OpenFlow 1.3 to 1.5 installations
– MPLS payload matching
– L2 GRE/GTP/VxLAN/MPLS tunneling protocol encapsulation/decapsulation
– BFD Link Monitoring
These features allow operators to expand business by optimizing network support of virtualization in the data centre, improving efficiency and Data Center Interconnect by applying intelligent flow management at the network edge, and significantly improving both ease of use and time-to-market for new services.
Through its strategic partnerships, NoviFlow offers end-to-end solutions for data center operators and network operators that combine its advanced data plane processing capabilities with partner-provided OpenFlow controllers and applications. Used with industry standard OpenFlow Controllers and Applications, NoviFlow OpenFlow switches are the ideal platform for the implementation of SDN and NFV in today’s high volume networks. So whether you have a data center, are doing research into SDN, or want to build an application that will be the Next Big Thing in networking, come talk to us about how our solutions effectively leverage SDN technology to resolve specific network pain points and improve network economies.
NoviFlow was established in 2012 and has offices in Sunnyvale, Montreal, and Seattle.
