HP and NEC Announce SDN Collaboration

HP and NEC agreed to collaborate on joint solutions that leverage software-defined networking (SDN) technology for enterprise customers.  The companies have been partners since 1995 in delivering enterprise IT systems.  With this news, HP and NEC are extending their alliance to encompass network infrastructure solutions.

HP and NEC also are working with industry-standards organizations to show continued commitment to a standards-based SDN solution. HP and NEC will build ecosystems of application vendors providing business and network applications based on products that utilize open standards to implement SDN, which in turn allows for dynamic control of the network.
