ADARA to Demonstrate Breakthrough AXIS Switch at Open Networking Summit

SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Open Networking Summit — ADARA Networks®, a global software company in the Software Defined Networking (SDN) space, today announced that it will demonstrate the new, production-ready, ADARA AXIS Switch at the Open Networking Summit, March 3-5. Delivering industry-leading cost-efficiency, scalability and performance, the ADARA AXIS Switch is designed to advance SDN adoption in enterprise data centers. It integrates ADARA’s end-to-end SDN software with Interface Masters’ high-capacity switching platform, the Niagara 2948-12XL-OCP, which is based on the feature-rich Broadcom StrataXGS Trident II switch chip.

“ADARA’s AXIS is a breakthrough switch and SDN system with no equal in the marketplace,” said Eric Johnson, Chairman and CEO, ADARA Networks. “It delivers the lowest latency, fastest production forwarding, highest VLAN scalability, greatest energy efficiency, and most feature-rich and port-dense switch on the market.”

The ADARA AXIS Switch is based on the leading switch silicon and the most advanced solid state architecture. It underlines ADARA’s industry-leading end-to end SDN software—OPEX tunable choreography and orchestration, SDN controllers, hypervisor controllers, cloud controllers and network services virtualization stack which replaces nearly every middleware box.

“Broadcom’s StrataXGS Trident II Ethernet Switch silicon delivers a strong foundation for SDN-capable switches,” said Sujal Das, Director, Product Marketing, Broadcom Corporation. “Using Broadcom’s OpenFlow Data Plane Abstraction (OF-DPA) software, companies like ADARA are able to quickly develop and bring to market OpenFlow 1.3.1 compliant, high performance and scalable solutions.”

“Interface Masters is proud to partner with ADARA to create the industry’s leading highest density SDN switch platform, complete with a network operating system and network stack designed specifically for the Broadcom StrataXGS Trident II switch chip,” said Ben Askarinam, CEO, Interface Masters Technologies. “The combined solution delivers an industry best system in architecture, in features and in value-added capabilities.”
