Allied Telesis Demonstrates AMF Security Wireless and Wired Solutions at Open Networking Summit

SAN JOSE, Calif. – April 20, 2017 — Allied Telesis, a leading provider of hardware and software products that allow customers to build secure, feature-rich and scalable data exchange solutions, demonstrated its AMF Security (AMF-Sec) solution at the Linux Foundation’s 2017 Open Networking Summit. Developed to meet the growing demand for SDN-like capabilities for the traditional Enterprise, AMF-Sec enables rich programmability and control over OpenFlow enabled infrastructure, such as Allied Telesis xSeries switches and TQ-series wireless access points.

AMF-Sec is supported with a rich application suite delivered through a diverse ecosystem of technology partners to help its Enterprise and Service provider customers build fully-compliant SDN/NFV networks.

Allied Telesis has closely followed the development of OpenFlow as an SDN protocol and regularly out-performs other vendors during competitive testing.

The following Allied Telesis product families are SDN-ready today:

“After a successful SDN multi-vendor interoperability event at the prestigious Berkeley Labs we ’re delighted to show customers how to build and deploy Secure Enterprise SDN networks that leverage SDN/NFV principles in a ready-to-deploy model based on plug-and-play networking,” said Philip Yim, SVP Global Programs for Allied Telesis.

“Allied Telesis has a long history of innovating and we are confident that we have developed a compelling SDN solution that addresses the programmability and control needs of Enterprise customers. As SDN matures into the Enterprise with a disaggregated networking model, we believe open interoperability is what truly enables best-of-breed choices and ultimately avoids vendor lock-in.”
