WILSONVILLE, Ore., Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- APCON Inc., the industry leader for intelligent data traffic management solutions for network monitoring and security, today announced a new development program in the emerging field of Software Defined Networking (SDN).
"Software Defined Networking is clearly the next generation of data center management, and APCON has a solid foundation in the principles and technical requirements that define the concept. We are launching a comprehensive development program to integrate APCON network monitoring switches with the coming generation of SDN controllers," says Richard Rauch, President and CEO of APCON.
SDN separates network data flow control from the physical hardware that makes up a network. Advantages of SDN include greater flexibility to apply resources as needed without extensive remodeling of the physical network. Because all data flow is controlled through software, processes such as bandwidth provisioning, load balancing, monitoring, and security response can be executed more quickly. Several standards have been proposed to actualize this concept.
At this time, first-tier networking companies known to be developing SDN-compatible products include Cisco, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, NEC, Juniper Networks, Brocade Communications, Arista Networks, and Extreme Networks. APCON is responding with its own development effort to integrate the network monitoring system and its specialized features with SDN-controlled networks.
APCON develops innovative, scalable technology solutions to enhance network monitoring, support intelligent data traffic analysis, and streamline network management and security. The company serves as the industry leader for state-of-the-art packet aggregation, filtering, and network switching products, as well as leading-edge management-software support. Organizations in over 50 countries currently depend on APCON solutions in their network infrastructures. Customers include Global Fortune 500 companies, banks and financial services institutions, telecommunication and service providers, government and military organizations, and computer equipment manufacturers.
