Open Flow Technologies

The future is NOW!

OpenFlow is a Layer 2 communications protocol that gives access to the forwarding plane of a network switch or router over the network. In simpler terms, the SNAP OpenFlow allows the path of network packets through the network of switches to be determined by software running on multiple routers (minimum two of them — primary and secondary — has a role of observers). This separation of the control from the forwarding allows for more sophisticated traffic management than is feasible using access control lists (ACLs) and routing protocols. Moreover, OpenFlow is an enabler of Software Defined Networking.

The Brocade enabled solution allows SNAP to provide revolutionary Layer 2 communications globally.
