OpenFlow - Bringing new levels of network control

Date: 
Thursday, May 23, 2013 - 16:00 to 17:00

There is a lot of buzz about Software Defined Networking(SDN) and OpenFlow, which looks set to revolutionise IP networking. OpenFlow is a standard driven by the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) and it is a disruptive approach to networking, enabling new levels of network control.

This Webinar provides you with the opportunity to learn more about OpenFlow and how to get your own OpenFlow switch for free.

By providing open control of IP networking, OpenFlow provides solutions to problems that today's generation of IP networking technology struggles to solve. For example it allows centralised response to Denial of Service attacks, optimised routing performance for low latency applications such as video or optimised routing for Big Data analysis.

LINC is a free, open source software based OpenFlow switch available from FlowForwarding.org. LINC was developed by Erlang Solutions for FlowForwarding.org and Infoblox, the primary sponsor.

LINC is the first free switch to support all the latest OpenFlow protocols and because it is portable, it can be run on a wide range of hardware.

LINC has been implemented in Erlang, the concurrent soft-real time programming language invented by Ericsson to develop their next generation networks.

Erlang Solutions invites you to join Stuart Bailey - CTO and Founder of Infoblox and Steve Roberts from Erlang Solutions for an insightful discussion about how you can solve your networking challenges using OpenFlow.

In this webinar you’ll learn:

    What is OpenFlow and why it is different to traditional networking
    What are the benefits of OpenFlow
    Real world problems that can be solved by SDN & OpenFlow
    How to build your own OpenFlow network using the free LINC software?
