NEC introduced its UNIVERGE ProgrammableFlow PF5820 10/40 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) OpenFlow switch delivering 1.28 terabits of capacity.

The new PF5820, which builds on NEC’s ProgrammableFlow Software Defined Network Architecture (SDN), is designed for building high-performance, secure and programmable networks. Other products in this family include the NEC ProgrammableFlow Controller and PF5240 1/10 GbE Switch.

The PF5820 provides 48 10GbE SFP+ ports plus 4 QSFP+ ports that operate at 40GbE or as 16 additional 10GbE ports providing a total of 64 10GbE ports in one switch. The switch offers optional front-to-back or back-to-front airflow, redundant, hot-swappable AC power supplies. It supports the OpenFlow 1.0 specification and will support new versions of the OpenFlow standard as they become available.
