NoviFlow NoviWare 400.3
NoviFlow’s NoviWare 400.3 is the SDN industry’s most complete and highest performance implementation of the OpenFlow 1.3/1.4/1.5 standard for use in switches, WAN IP/MPLS routers, network appliances and other high-performance forwarding planes. It is deployed around the world in NoviFlow’s NoviSwitch products, and is also offered via software license to OEM and ODM switching platform suppliers. NoviWare 400.3 consists of all the software necessary for a pure-play OpenFlow switch, and currently supports the Mellanox NP-4 and NP-5 network processor and Intel or PowerPC host CPUs. Today’s major network operators demand flexible, scalable switching and routing solutions that deliver wire-speed performance. NoviWare was designed from the ground up to be a reliable, scalable platform for OpenFlow, combining a fully programmable L2-L7 packet forwarding data plane with high throughput performance.
NoviFlow Inc.™ aims to change the traditional approach to networking by making switching and routing smarter. The company was founded to deliver upon the promise of OpenFlow and SDN by delivering solutions that can handle complex flow processing and be field upgradable via software updates, making it possible for data centers and WANs to keep up with today’s exponentially growing networking demand. By licensing NoviWare, NoviFlow is enabling leading OEMs and ODMs to bring to market tried and tested OpenFlow 1.3/1.4/1.5 solutions in months, not years.
