iwNetworks SDN 8952S

SDN Switches

The iwNetworks SDN series of high-performance L2/L3 network switches are ideal for data centers and cloud computing. Seamlessly integrate them into a standard environment with its unique hybrid configuration, which allows for the concurrent operation of industry-standard L2/L3 protocols and industry-leading OpenFlow. Users can experiment by controlling the level of adaptation of an open network fabric, making it ideal for both enterprise and research data centers.

The SDN series of switches are comprised of enterprise-class hardware with 1GbE and 10GbE options. The switch provides redundant, hot-swappable AC or DC PSUs and redundant fans, with port-to-power and power-to-port airflow options. The SDN series runs IWOS, a Linux-based operating system that integrates L2/L3 protocols with an OpenFlow v1.0/v1.2 agent. With support for open switch applications, IWOS provides a programmatic API for custom switch programs and protocols.

Hybrid Mode SDN Integration Options
The SDN series supports the concurrent operation of both industry-standard L2/L3 switching and industry-leading OpenFlow modes. Assign or mix ports in a single switch. This hybrid feature allows for gradual integration of the SDN architecture into an existing network with minimal disruption of the current environment. The SDN Series supports current SDN software approaches including: network virtualization overlays, multi-tenancy and VMotion across an L3 network. Integrate with commercial or open source controllers. The SDN Series supports OpenFlow v1.0, v1.2, and v1.3, and includes Switch Light, and Open vSwitch.
White Box Configuration Expandable Functions
The SDN series features enterprise-class switch hardware at a fraction of the cost of leading vendors. Developers have access to an open API to integrate additional features and functions in a Linux user-space written in Python, Ruby, C, cURL, OpenSSH, or OpenSSL.
