Brain4Net and Partners Showcase Interoperable SDN-solution for Metro Ethernet Networks at ONF AppFest 2016

Cambridge, May 16-20, 2016 – SDN/NFV solution provider Brain4Net Inc. announced its B4N Controller, MEF apps pack and B4N SwitchOS have successfully passed interoperability tests with Noviflow and Edge-Core switches. This results were achieved at the 2nd annual Open Networking Foundation (ONF) AppFest 2016.

AppFest 2016 took place at the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory from May 16-19. The annual event is an excellent opportunity for developers and vendors to verify interoperation of their applications, controllers, switches, and test tools. Approximately 50 organizations participated, testing their solutions for interoperability and conformance with the OpenFlow 1.3 specification and other protocols.

Brain4Net Inc., a promising SDN/NFV startup headquartered in Cambridge, MA, was a first-time participant in the event. Company’s B4N Controller and MEF apps were tested for compatibility with Noviflow and Edge-Core switches in order to ensure seamless interaction before running them in a production environment.

The B4N Controller was also verified for ONF Controller Benchmarking on IXIA hardware, and tested with Spirent’s Test Plan for switches and hosts topology emulation and performance. Meanwhile, B4N SwitchOS was successfully tested for interoperability with IXIA and Spirent test systems, and underwent an ONF Conformance Test local run using IOL services.

“ONF AppFest 2016 moved our excellence forward”, said Oleg Schapov, CEO at Brain4Net. “Multiple testing sessions gave us and our technology partners the ability to share experiences with ONF members, extend the B4N SwitchOS supported hardware list, and improve the performance of B4N Controller and services.”
