News Flash: The Pronto 3240 and 3290 48 port gigabit switches have been announced. These switches run the Stanford Indigo software release and are available at a very competitive price point from resellers in the Bay Area.

In GEC7 held in March 16-18 at Duke University, BBN/GPO and six universities (Clemson, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Rutgers, Wisconsin and University of Washington) came together and each successfully showed their current deployment status, live. All those participants have deployed an OpenFlow network in a small scale and virtualized it into multiple slices including experimental and production slices. Some universities showed interesting research experiments such as access control and mobility on the experimental slice.
It was great to see the progress in OpenFlow deployment in each campus as well as the interesting researches happening on top of it. We together will continue expanding OpenFlow deployment including Internet2 and NLR.
