ProgrammableFlow Networking

ProgrammableFlow Networking
NEC ProgrammableFlow Networking offers a simple solution for complex networks.

A next-generation solution, ProgrammableFlow uses NEC’s OpenFlow  technology to deliver a flattened, open networking topology that simplifies network management, proactively addresses performance and contributes to high availability of mission-critical business processes.


ProgrammableFlow is:


  • Simple - ProgrammableFlow centralizes control of the network, eliminates the need for distributed protocols such as Spanning Tree.
  • Fast - ProgrammableFlow automatically monitors network traffic and distributes it according
    to custom-defined policies and continuously updated network resources and traffic conditions.
  • Scalable - You can scale ProgrammableFlow from managing the traffic on a single rack that is integrated into an existing network to managing the traffic within an entire data center.
  • Open - ProgrammableFlow separates network control from switch hardware. As a result, organizations can make infrastructure investment decisions that are independent from the network features they want to support.
