    With 10 or 40 GE access ports and a high-throughput backbone, FortiSwitch Data Center Switches are ideal for the top-of-rack (ToR) server or firewall-aggregation applications. The high-speed switching fabric is also well suited for enterprise network core or backbone network installations.

    NoviFlow develops high performance Ethernet switches compliant with the latest OpenFlow protocol and designed to address the two key needs of initial SDN deployments: the flow table capacity to handle large numbers of users and the network throughput to enable solutions that can scale. NoviFlow offers the most complete OpenFlow 1.3/1.4 implementation for SDN forwarding planes that deliver up to 240 Gbps of throughput and support up to 1 million flow entries.
