NEC Offers Pay as you Go Pricing for SDN Controller

NEC will offer pay-as-you-go pricing for its SDN ProgrammableFlow Controller.  Pricing increases in step with network capacity.

NEC introduces a ProgrammableFlow SDN Starter Pack, which is priced starting at $3,000 and provides the features of the ProgrammableFlow Controller software, but is designed for smaller SDN deployments, including departmental or lab deployments. The network easily scales up as capacity requirements grow.


"The new pricing enables customers to deploy networks of any size to seize the operational and performance benefits of Open Networking," said Don Clark, director, business development, NEC Corporation of America. "We are confident that once our customers experience the benefits of SDN, they will make it a part of their IT infrastructure."

NEC is also adding new capabilities to Version 6 that lets wide-area Ethernet fabrics stretch across the campus or metro area. Combined with network virtualization, these new capabilities enable network operators to deploy converged network fabrics across remote sites, reducing the need for the costly network hardware required by most traditional networks. SDN for campus networks improves service agility through simplified operations and greater traffic visibility, as compared to traditional networks.
