Extreme SDN Platform

Extreme Networks' SDN platform is based on a hardened OpenDaylight controller that includes network management, access control, application analytics and wireless controller technology using open APIs.

The platform extends orchestration and automation capabilities while enabling provisioning to the entire network under a single pane of glass. Extreme's SDN can integrate with existing multivendor hardware and software network environments. The vendor also provides an OpenDaylight-based API software development kit to help customers keep pace with new security, wireless and converged SDN infrastructure.


Nuage Virtualized Services Platform

Nuage Networks, a subsidiary of Nokia, provides a virtualized services platform SDN solution for clouds of all sizes and makes the network readily consumable as compute resources, according to Nuage. The vendor provides a Border Gateway Protocol-based SDN network virtualization overlay along with an SD-WAN solution.

Nuage's platform, which is included in Hewlett Packard Enterprise's Helion OpenStack 2.0, is based on an overlay model that uses any IP network to provide connectivity between sites, where organizations can mix and match available networks from multiple providers.


Brocade's SDN Controller

Brocade Communications has an open-source SDN controller distributed along with its VCS Fabric. The Brocade SDN Controller is built directly from OpenDaylight code, without any proprietary extensions or platform dependencies.

Brocade says the controller ensures the ability to quickly develop and monetize applications as organizations transition to SDN. Customers can optimize their infrastructure to match the needs of their workloads and develop network applications that can be run on any OpenDaylight-based controller.
