Netronome Demonstrates SDN and NFV Reference Designs at TM Forum Live 2014

Netronome, the leading provider of data plane processing solutions for software-defined networks (SDN), today announced that they will be showcasing production-ready reference designs for software-defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) at the TM Forum Live 2014 event, held June 2-5 at the Acropolis Convention Center, Nice, France.

Netronome, with partners Service Mesh and PlumGrid, will be demonstrating the use of a cloud orchestrator with OpenStack integration to provision a virtualized network topology while monitoring and enforcing SLAs via SDN-OpenFlow, across legacy MPLS WAN. This live demonstration highlights the ability to prioritize a video service using SDN, while also securing the service by hosting virtualized networking functions (VNF). Netronome’s flow processors and SDN software are combined with a standard x86-based server to create a high-performance platform that serves as an SDN gateway connecting a multi-tenant, cloud data center to a carrier IP/MPLS transport network.

“Netronome has played an important role in helping TM Forum demonstrate the SDN use-cases outlined in our collaboration with the Open Data Center Alliance,” said Bob Cohen, director, Enterprise Cloud Leadership Council, TM Forum. “In the TM Forum’s work, Netronome’s close integration with OpenStack-compatible cloud management systems indicates that SDN technologies are ready for commercial adoption.”

“The TM Forum demonstration provides a unique experience, where we partner with other market leaders to prove that many possibilities of SDN and NFV are now achievable,” said Jarrod Siket, senior vice president of marketing at Netronome. “Our SDN gateway and NFV production-ready reference platforms support the full OpenFlow 1.3 specification, allowing cloud data center and carrier operators to take these technologies out of the labs and into production networks.”
