NEC is First to Pass ONF's OpenFlow Conformance Testing

NEC Corporation has received the first Certificate of Conformance through the Open Networking Foundation's (ONF's) OpenFlow Conformance Testing Program.

The ONF OpenFlow Conformance Testing Program was launched in July 2013. The Program provides networking vendors with the opportunity to demonstrate compliance with the OpenFlow specification, the first SDN standard and a vital element of an open SDN architecture. Testing of NEC’s Programmable Flow switches PF5240 and PF5248 was conducted by Indiana Center for Network Translational Research and Education (InCNTRE), one of the three independent labs approved for ONF OpenFlow Conformance testing.
