SDN NFV World Congress | NoviFlow’s Show in The Hague – Innovating end-to-end!

Our team just returned from their tour in The Hague, where they hosted a record number of partners, customers, media, analysts and industry leaders at the SDN NFV World Congress. But why was our booth so hot?!

The event is the industry-leading forum and showcase for the rapidly growing and massively influential Software-Defined Networking and Network Functions Virtualization ecosystems. With over 2,000 executives, decision makers, leaders and activists present, there was no shortage of demo requests, partnership discussions, and press briefings. With major new partners Barefoot Networks and Lumina Networks, NoviFlow did not disappoint!

The Opening Act

On Monday, October 9th, before the show floor opened, we held a private NoviFlow User Group Meeting – a room full of VIPs: tech visionaries and innovators. We had the pleasure to listen to several of NoviFlow customers discuss their experiences in deploying our fully programmable solutions. It was amazing to see our NoviSwitches and NoviWare NOS at the core of our customers’ network transformation journey. Then new partners Barefoot Networks, Lumina Networks and Agema Systems showed how NoviFlow’s NoviWare™ is the Network Operating System of choice for fully programmable forwarding planes and SDN applications looking to unleash their power. Let’s just say the opening act truly set the stage for the main performer!

The Headliner

From October 10th to 13th, our team hosted a slew of visitors at our booth A10. The demo pod

was running at full steam, showcasing our CyberMapper™ Threat Intelligence Gateway, a cybersecurity solution offering access control (whitelist/blacklist), persistent load-balancing, live links to IP reputation feeds and live mitigation from DPI security servers. Oh, and did we mention this was running live on Barefoot’s Tofino chip, making this the highest performance Threat Intelligence Gateway on the planet?

At this event we announced our partnership with Barefoot Networks for which our NoviWare NOS unleashes the full power of Tofino’s PISA architecture, programmable match-action pipeline, and leverages Barefoot’s powerful P4/Capilano development environment. That’s big news! 6.5 Tbps big! NoviWare NOS running on the Tofino chip is the only SDN fabric in the market that is genuinely programmable, has terabit throughput and is price-competitive with fixed-pipeline ASICs. This without a doubt changes the SDN game and expands the reach of SDN solutions from the network’s edge all the way into the core and spine.

Speaking of core networks, the potential of SDN in the core was further expanded via our partnership with Lumina Networks for the industry’s first SD-Core Networking Solution, delivering carrier-grade MPLS/segment routing solution that reduces costs by over 40% while providing true scalability for the future. Our CEO Dominique Jodoin joined Lumina’s CEO Andrew Coward in a video interview with Telecom TV. Together, we look forward to helping our customers embark on “the journey to SD-Core“.

What’s next?

While we deal with our subsequent pile of fan mail, we are also preparing for our presence at MEF17. We’ll be present in Booth #408, where we will continue to show NoviWare on Tofino, SD-Core and cyber security solutions, as well as announce a brand new partnership that will take vBNGs to a new level. Stay tuned for more updates.
