CALIENT Technologies Announces Availability and Interoperability Results of OpenFlow API for S320 Optical Circuit Switch
Sep 9 13
CALIENT Technologies, Inc. announced preliminary interoperability testing results of its newly available OpenFlow software-defined networking (SDN) application programming interface (API) for its S320 optical circuit switch. The S320 will be on display at the 2013 High Performance Computing for Wall Street show taking place in New York City. In testing by Tallac Networks, using the testing facilities of the InCNTRE lab at Indiana University, the S320 OpenFlow API provided a base level of interoperability with several industry leading commercial SDN controllers. Similar compatibility was achieved with the Floodlight open-source controller that featured CALIENT-developed S320 extensions. In the testing, equipment operators using these controllers were able to dynamically discover and initiate connections through the switch and instigate a real-time view of the network topology. Operators also were able to define paths through the switch based on end-point addresses for easy network configuration. Together with an OpenFlow controller, the new API allows the S320 to reconfigure datacenter networks to optimize high-capacity data flows, such as virtual machine migrations or storage back ups, at the optical layer and to function as part of a software-defined hybrid packet-circuit switched network.
CALIENT Technologies, Inc. and American Networking Solutions Partner on First Solution That Secures Fiber-Optic Physical Networks
Aug 28 13
CALIENT Technologies, Inc. announced it has teamed with American Networking Solutions to debut the CyberSecure Infrastructure Protection System (IPS). The CyberSecure IPS is the first five-level cyber security solution designed to secure physical fiber cabling infrastructure and automatically protect data traffic of government and enterprise networks from physical plant cyber-attacks - minimizing the risk of physical intrusions and the loss of mission critical classified information. The CyberSecure IPS combines the S320 optical circuit switch from CALIENT with the CyberSecure Infrastructure Management System (IMS) from American Networking Solutions, creating an alarmed carrier protective distribution system unparalleled in the IT security industry. When an optical disturbance is detected on a data network infrastructure cable, the CyberSecure IMS software notifies CALIENT's S320 of the intrusion attempt and the S320 then quarantines network elements. The S320 can instantly shut off or reroute data traffic to a new network infrastructure to prevent any sensitive information from being transmitted across compromised circuits. This routing capability can also be used to direct traffic to optical tap couplers for network packet monitoring.
