The NoviSwitch 2122 represents a leap forward in OpenFlow switching and flow handling capacity.

NoviFlow Inc., a leading provider of high-performance OpenFlow-based switching solutions, today announced the NoviSwitch 2122. The new switch extends the company’s high-performance OpenFlow data plane solutions to include 100 Gigabit Ethernet link ports, with full support for OpenFlow 1.3 and most of OpenFlow 1.4, and offering up to 240 Gbps of packet throughput (240 Gbps in and 240 Gbps out), up to 1 million flow-entries in TCAM, two 100 Gbps QSFP28 transceiver cages and twenty 10/1 Gbps SFP+/SFP transceiver cages. The NoviSwitch 2122 features the market leading EZchip NP-5 Network Processor, and a powerful Intel Core i7-4700EQ quad-core 2.4GHz host CPU with the processing capacity to deliver up to 14,000 flow-mods/second.

According to Dominique Jodoin, President and CEO of NoviFlow: “The NoviSwitch 2122 represents a leap forward in OpenFlow switching and flow handling capacity. This unique blend of large flow-table capacity, high OpenFlow throughput and broad implementation of the OpenFlow 1.3/1.4 specifications is the reason why Tier 1 carriers and global network infrastructure companies are choosing NoviSwitches in the deployment of scalable, robust, and high-demand SDN, cloud, and NFV solutions.”

The NoviSwitch 2122, which features the NoviWare 300 switching software, is the newest member of NoviFlow’s high-performance OpenFlow switch line, for use in mission critical deployments. It provides the industry’s broadest support of the OpenFlow specification, including all OpenFlow 1.3 actions, instructions and match fields, and most OpenFlow 1.4 features. The NoviSwitch 2122 also delivers the capabilities and performance needed by intensive, leading-edge Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) applications such as services chaining, GTP-based load balancing, IPX, etc.

Adds Jodoin: “NoviSwitch 2122 is a key component of NoviFlow’s Scale-Out Router solution: 100 Gbps ports for uplink to core networks in high performance gateway SDN applications. NoviFlow’s Scale-Out Router solution provides a flexible and agile environment that can support multiple network services such as BGP, MPLS and LDP, service chaining of VNFs for 4G/5G EPC, DPI, FW, LB, and NAT, and can be software upgraded in the field to support new protocols and functionalities as they become available”

The NoviSwitch 2122 is available for ordering now. NoviFlow will be demonstrating their Scale-Out BGP Router solution at CNV 2015, held on December 1st and 2nd at the Crowne Plaza in Palo Alto, California, and invites all interested parties to come visit them at booth #14.

NoviFlow Inc. provides high-performance OpenFlow-based switching solutions to network carriers, data center operators and enterprises seeking greater control and flexibility over their networks. NoviFlow has offices in Montreal, Sunnyvale and Seattle. For more information, please visit Follow NoviFlow on Twitter @NoviFlowInc.
