Netronome CEO to Present on SDN and NFV Services at Open Networking Summit 2014

Open Networking Summit 2014

SANTA CLARA, Calif.--()--Netronome, the leading provider of data plane processing solutions for software-defined networks (SDN), today announced that the company’s CEO and founder Niel Viljoen will present at the Open Networking Summit (ONS) during the “Hot Startups” track on Tuesday, March 4, at 2:30 p.m. at the Santa Clara Convention Center. Netronome will also be giving live demonstrations of networking and security applications based on their newly announced family of FlowNIC™ PCIe Gen3 cards and the new FlowEnvironment™ software package at booth 701.

Viljoen’s session titled, “Hosting SDN L4-L7 and NFV Services on an Accelerated Flow Processing Platform,” will highlight a fully-featured OpenFlow 1.3.x implementation with multi-table support that includes the ability to intelligently steer traffic to VNF’s local to the platform.

“As networks continue to advance and the architectures transform, there is an increasing demand for products based on open and standard software and hardware specifications,” said Viljoen. “I look forward to demonstrating how this platform can be used for any intelligent control point in SDN or NFV designs that require cybersecurity, gateway, load-balancing and analytics applications.”

Viljoen will also describe leading customer use cases who are employing the platform as a WAN gateway between SDN and MPLS networks, as well as for security purposes. The solution consists of standard COTS servers augmented with Netronome’s acceleration NICs and software, which allow the platforms to scale to performance levels previously only found in closed, fixed-function systems.

The ONS event brings together engineers, business leaders and researchers who share and explore the key developments and deployments in the rapidly-evolving world of OpenFlow and SDN.
