Tokyo and Las Vegas, May 9, 2012 - NEC Corporation (TSE: 6701) announced today that NEC Corporation of America (NEC) has been named Best of Interop 2012 Winner, and its ProgrammableFlow Controller 2.0 has won both the Grand Prize and the Management, Monitoring & Testing category, as determined by a distinguished panel of judges at Interop Las Vegas, happening through May 10 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center.
"The Best of Interop Awards presents leading edge technologies of the outstanding IT vendors in the industry," said Art Wittmann, Vice President and Director, InformationWeek Reports. "NEC and each of the category winners represent a true commitment to innovation in business technology and deserve recognition for helping build and strengthen today's IT marketplace."
The ProgrammableFlow Controller 2.0 gives customers the ability to design, deploy, monitor and manage secure, multitenant networks from a single point of control. The updated controller builds upon the OpenFlow 1.0 standard to provide more control of network resources, while maintaining interoperability with other OpenFlow compliant equipment.
"Winning the Best of Interop award further validates the leading role of ProgrammableFlow in the software defined networking revolution," said Mitsuhiro Murooka, Vice President, NEC Enterprise Technologies IT. "We are honored that the distinguished panel of judges at Interop have recognized us for this work, which culminates in the ProgrammableFlow product suite."
Interop Best of Show recognizes technology companies and products that have made significant technological advancements in nine key areas. The winners in each category represent products that have the most significant technical impact on their segment, and are helping to move business technology forward, as deemed by a panel of expert judges.
"The business value of software defined networking (SDN) was recognized early on as NEC worked with teams at Stanford University on the development of the OpenFlow protocol," said Don Clark, director of business development, NEC Enterprise Technologies IT. "The NEC ProgrammableFlow Controller establishes a new category of network management by integrating best-in-class monitoring capabilities with network configuration management."
With NEC's multitenant network virtualization technology, organizations can programmatically manage the way traffic flows across the network, optimizing use of existing network resources and the appliances, servers, and storage connecting to the network, leading to service agility and higher staff productivity.
The ProgrammableFlow Controller and more can be seen on exhibit at Interop this week in NEC booth 815.
