SAN JOSE, CA – Jan 23rd, 2018 - Allied Telesis, a leading provider of hardware and software products that allow customers to build secure, feature-rich and scalable data exchange solutions, is pleased to announce that its x930 advanced Gigabit Layer 3 stackable switches have achieved the Open Networking Foundation’s (ONF) OpenFlow V1.3 Basic Certificate of Conformance. This gives the x930 switches a coveted place on the OpenFlow Conformant Product registry of certified products.

“As a leading provider worldwide of network infrastructure products, solutions and services, we’re committed to promoting the global standardization of SDN so that our current and future customers can develop and deploy superior SDN solutions”, said Seiichiro Sato, Senior Vice President, Global Marketing for Allied Telesis. “Our focus continues to be on driving the evolution to next-generation networking technologies and this certification is an important step in that process.”

The ONF’s OpenFlow Conformant Product registry provides a real-time list of all industry products that demonstrate total conformance to the OpenFlow specification. To conform, products must comply with the specification for both hardware and software, and pass a series of rigorous tests from an ONF certified testing lab.

Allied Telesis’ support for the OpenFlow V1.3 specification demonstrates its commitment to providing businesses with deployment-ready networking solutions that are both high-performing and future-proof, for guaranteed compatibility with an increasing number of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) solutions. The OpenFlow specification is the first SDN standard, and a vital element of any SDN network. All conformance testing is performed by independent, accredited testing labs around the world, which provides both impartial validation and ONF endorsement.
