NEC ProgrammableFlow® 1/10GbE Hybrid OpenFlow® Switch PF5240
Hardware Switch & Router
Together with the NEC ProgrammableFlow Controller, this Hybrid switch, connecting OpenFlow® with standard L2/L3 networks, can provide dramatic reduction in network operating expense by eliminating the need for standard protocols like spanning tree, and dramatically simplifying traditional networks. Winner of the Best of Interop in Infrastructure Award, this switch provides 8-way multi-path for higher availability and improved cross sectional network bandwidth. By decoupling the network services from the hardware operating system, ProgrammableFlow and the PF5240 further protects customer investment and provides new levels of flexibility and control.
