InteropNet is creating a purpose-built lab to test Software-Defined Networking (SDN) systems and applications including open source software and vendor hardware and software. The SDN Lab will build on the original InteropNet OpenFlow Lab that first brought the OpenFlow SDN concept to Interop attendees in 2011.
The InteropNet SDN Lab aims to educate attendees on the principles, functions, and features of SDN concepts and technology. It will test the interoperability of open source and vendor products, and demonstrate SDN concepts in a variety of scenarios. Our team of network experts, which includes industry veterans and vendor engineers, will use both open source and vendor tools to demonstrate:
The work of the InteropNet SDN Lab will begin during InteropNet Hot Stage and be on display at Interop New York, Oct 1 – 2, 2014 during Expo hours.
As part of Interop’s commitment to interoperability, InteropNet Labs are multi-vendor, standards-based test and implementation areas for emerging technologies. InteropNet Labs raise awareness of concepts that affect the future design and implementation of enterprise networks. The Labs are built in collaboration with a cross-section of the business technology industry, from research organizations and product developers to implementers from the ISP/Carrier and Enterprise areas.
