25 Software-Defined Networking Players To Know


Intel

Intel's been vocal about its support for SDN, based on its visibility at the Open Networking Summit and various releases it's been touting, such as the Intel FM6000 Series -- a 10G Ethernet switch integrated circuit (IC) that Intel has described as a "key enabler for network administrators to gradually migrate to OpenFlow and SDN." Intel says part of the FM6000's appeal is that it can parse incoming traffic and direct it to an OpenFlow processing pipeline -- or another packet processing pipeline -- with low latency and high performance.
