-- OpenFlow: a Silicon Vendor's Perspective
Centec Networks, a leading innovator of IP/Ethernet switching silicon and advanced turnkey system solutions, today announced that James Sun, CEO of the company, will speak about OpenFlow during Ethernet Technology Summit 2012 in San Jose, CA.
Mr. Sun will participate in the panel of "Future of OpenFlow" and give a speech on OpenFlow from a silicon vendor perspective. Mr. Sun co-founded Centec Networks in 2005. During the speech, Mr. Sun will summarize Centec's understanding of the current OpenFlow development, directions and challenges. He will also outline Centec's dedication in supporting the open network ecosystem.
"As a silicon and turnkey solution vendor, we fully support the effort in creating more openness in the industry. In Q2 2012 Centec is planning to release a reference design with open SDK in supporting OpenvSwitch 1.2 from the switching silicon level. The productized reference design is based on Centec's TransWarp TM switching silicon, provides 48GE ports and 4 10GE ports. Highlight features include 4K flow entries and GRE tunnel support in hardware." said by Mr. Sun.
The Ethernet Technology Summit will be held at the Doubletree by Hilton February 21 through 23. It focuses on the use of Ethernet throughout the networking space. This includes the emergence of 10-Gigabit Ethernet as a key LAN technology on the desktop and in data centers. It also covers the emerging standards for 40-Gigabit and 100-Gigabit Ethernet. It also includes the use of Ethernet as a carrier backbone and transport method, as well as in storage applications and in virtualized data centers and clouds. Other topics of interest include design and development, fabrics, chipsets and components, security, delay and packet loss, convergence, big data, and market research.
