NoviFlow teams with Telus and CENGN for PoC of SDN based BGP routing via Cloud
This spring, NoviFlow teamed up with Telus and CENGN to do a Proof-of-Concept of the Open Networking Foundations Atrium Project, an SDN based BGP Router that offers centralized management of BGP over using OpenFlow 1.3 switches.
Of particular note in this PoC:
- The OpenFlow switch used was a NoviFlow NoviKit 250 running the current version of our NoviWare 300 OpenFlow software for high-performance network processors (Mellanox NP4, in this case),
- The PoC used the Atrium Release 16A running with the ONOS controller,
- The controller, BGP stack and apps were instead on an OpenStack enable cloud infrastructure
- The NoviFlow Switch was connected to two Virtual MX switches acting as peers (running on X86 servers).
