Here’s a new case study video produced by the Open Networking Foundation featuring the OpenFlow-enabled SDN Testbed AARNet has deployed using NoviFlow switches. Watch the video to hear AARNet CTO David Wilde and NoviFlow CEO Dominique Jodoin talk about the technology and the Testbed.

This Australia Wide-Area SDN Testbed, is an innovation platform for developing high-speed technologies, established in collaboration with nine universities and CSIRO Data61.

Based on open standards, the Testbed infrastructure consists of a core of four interconnected NoviFlow OpenFlow-enabled switches at AARNet backbone sites in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Seattle controlled by virtual machines in Sydney and Melbourne.

SDN equipment installed at CSIRO Data 61and participating universities (University of New South Wales, University of Technology Sydney, Macquarie University, University of Adelaide, RMIT, Swinburne, University of Queensland, University of Wollongong and Australian National University) is interconnected by AARNet to create a national wide-area SDN testbed environment with the ability to peer with similar testbeds in the USA and Europe.
