Spirent Solution Demonstrates OpenFlow 1.3 Interoperability at Interop Tokyo 2013

Spirent Communications, the leading provider of network, services and device testing solutions, today announced that Spirent TestCenter supported a public demonstration of OpenFlow 1.3 interoperability testing at Interop Tokyo 2013.

Toyo Corporation, the exclusive distributor for Spirent in Japan, utilized Spirent TestCenter to emulate OpenFlow controllers and connect to multiple OpenFlow switches developed by vendors participating in the interoperability event. Spirent TestCenter’s powerful analysis capability verified switch and controller connectivity, and end-to-end traffic forwarding and performance of OpenFlow 1.3 implementations. This interoperability demonstration was presented the Interop Tokyo 2013 Best of Show Grand Prix Award for showcasing the readiness of OpenFlow 1.3 for commercial deployments.

"Spirent's cutting-edge solutions and thorough technical support from Toyo’s engineering team contributed greatly to Japan's first OpenFlow 1.3 interoperability test and world's first live demonstration,” said Mr. Shuichi Saito, Interop Tokyo ShowNet NOC Team. “We hope this interoperability test will help accelerate SDN/OpenFlow deployments in Japan and abroad."

“Spirent continues to be at the forefront of SDN/OpenFlow technology development by introducing leading-edge testing solutions and playing a critical role in tests such as the InCNTRE Interoperability event as well as the 100G AusNOG SDN demonstration,” said Angus Robertson, senior director product marketing at Spirent. “Spirent recognizes Toyo’s industry leading expertise for validating OpenFlow 1.3 solutions and is privileged to support Toyo in this OpenFlow 1.3 interoperability demonstration at Interop Tokyo.”

Spirent TestCenter enables network operators and vendors to measure performance, availability, security and scalability (PASS) of OpenFlow network devices and end-to-end SDN applications by defining millions of flows and exercising them with traffic patterns and behavior.

DevOps is a world surrounded by information, starting from a single commit and ending in roll out to production. In this talk, I'll introduce you to the world of Taboola DevOps data collection, to better understand what goes on under the hood. The system we've developed in-house helps us collect and analyse the entire DevOps process from the very first commit all the way to production. It provides us a full clear view with a drill-down toolset that helps keep us away from the dark side. Our KPI's moved from being abstracted ideas to data driven goals, which we can measure and act upon. We're living in a data driven world when all business components are based on our clients action and reaction, why not doing the same thing within our DevOps eco-system?

Containerized software is riding a wave of growth, according to latest RightScale survey. At Sematext we see this growth trend via our Docker monitoring adoption and via Sematext Docker Agent popularity on Docker Hub, where it crossed 1M+ pulls line. This rapid rise of containers now makes Docker the top DevOps tool among those included in RightScale survey. Overall Docker adoption surged to 35 percent, while Kubernetes adoption doubled, going from 7% in 2016 to 14% percent.
In an age of borderless networks, security for the cloud and security for the corporate network can no longer be separated. Security teams are now presented with the challenge of monitoring and controlling access to these cloud environments, as they represent yet another frontier for cyber-attacks. Complete visibility has never been more important-or more difficult. Powered by AI, Darktrace's Enterprise Immune System technology is the only solution to offer real-time visibility and insight into all parts of a network, regardless of its configuration. By learning a ‘pattern of life' for all networks, devices, and users, Darktrace can detect threats as they arise and autonomously respond in real time - all without impacting server performance.
