Fourteen Vendors Demonstrate OpenFlow Switches at Interop

May 25th, 2011, capveg in OpenFlow Blog

OpenFlow was a big splash at Interop. As one article put it, “Interop 2011 could have been called The OpenFlow Show” [1].


Critical to the OpenFlow Interop Labs display were four racks of OpenFlow-enabled switches running from fourteen different vendors, all interoperating and speaking to the same OpenFlow controller.  Running on top of these switches were the FlowVisor, Load-balancing, and Flow-dragging demos from Stanford, as well as demos contributed by individual vendors.

Additionally, NEC’s “Programmable Flow” Switch won the “Best in Show” prize in the infrastructure category.

Congratulations to all of the volunteers at Interop who helped make this happen!

    Who are the 14 vendors mention in your headline? You faile to mention, poor journalism.

    @Pollock A quick search on Google would actually get you the list of 14 vendors.
