IBM announced 10 gigabit ethernet OpenFlow switch G8264, which has 48 × 10 GbE SFP+ ports and 4 × 40 GbE QSFP+ ports. It was demonstrated at Interop Las Vegas in May and now it is available as a product with GA. The switch runs in either of two modes, traditional L2/L3 mode or OpenFlow mode (the mode is chosen at the switch boot time). In OpenFlow mode, the switch supports up to 97,750 flows. Here is a link that lists the major features of the switch. More information at
