PF5340 Virtual Switch

Quick and flexible service provision and changes by SDN technology

PF5340 Switch

Robust Connectivity

The PF5428 is the ideal solution for network gateways or other networks requiring 10GbE connectivity.

PF5340-48 Switch offers

  • 1,440 Gigabits per Second non-blocking bidirectional throughput in a 1U form factor.
  • 1,071 Million Packets per Second processing performance.
  • 48 x SFP/+ ports that operate at 1GbE or 10GbE.
  • 6 x QSFP+ ports that operate at 40GbE or 4x10GbE (using split cables).

PF5340-32 Switch offers

  • 2,560 Gigabits per Second non-blocking bidirectional throughput in a 1U form factor.
  • 1,428 Million Packets per Second processing performance.
  • 32 x QSFP+ ports that operate at 40GbE or 4x10GbE (using split cables).

Both models offer

  • Support for OpenFlow:
    • 1,792 entries ACL Policy Flow Table.
    • 294,912 Bridging Flow Table.
  • Modular design with internal redundant hot-swappable power supplies and fan.
  • Front to back or back to front airflow.

Key Benefits

  • Reduced network complexity OpenFlow support eliminates the need for traditional network protocols, reducing complexity.
  • Cloud ready NEC's Virtual Tenant Networks (VTN) technology provides secure, multi-tenant cloud networks.
  • Highly scalable with capacity of up to 160,000 flow entries for a variety of virtualization, security and performance applications.
  • Easy migration by supporting both OpenFlow and legacy protocols so an ideal platform for getting started with SDN.
  • Unsurpassed network availability with advanced OpenFlow availability features for advanced levels of availability.
  • Reliability with power redundancy and uninterrupted service through dual field-replaceable AC power supplies.

Virtual Network (VTN-OEF)

The virtual network (VTN-OEF) is a virtualized network method specialized in scalability, fault tolerance and virtualization of L2 networks for large datacenters.

  • Virtual network (VTN-OEF) communications are set up as mutually independent networks by the controller.
  • Virtual networks are designed, added or changed through a GUI of the controller without regard to the physical network configurations.
  • Virtual L2 networks are configured using virtual L2 switches.
  • High speed switching in case of a failure in large networks is achieved by a combination of OpenFlow protocol and PF5340's automatic terminal address learning function.
