LAYERZngn Introduces CPlane OpenTransit, a Commercial GradeSoftware-Defined Networking (SDN) OpenFlow Controller
 New OpenFlow Controller supports cloud-scale clustering with high availability, carrier-gradeservice, life-cycle management and seamless integration with existing protocols and standards.
Sunnyvale, CA, April 18, 2012 --(PR.com)-- LAYERZngn today announced the availability of CPlaneOpenTransit, the newest member of the CPlane Framework family of infrastructure automation products.CPlane OpenTransit is available on a controlled-release basis to service providers and systems vendors.According to Harry Quackenboss, LAYERZngn's CEO, “With increased understanding of Software-Defined Networks (SDN) and OpenFlow, many are concluding that major advances inscalability, service life-cycle management and integration with existing protocols are needed. CPlaneOpenTransit addresses these requirements by providing a highly-scalable integrated capability to supportSDN and OpenFlow applications that works simultaneously with provisioning and orchestration of traditional network devices and services with service life-cycle support features such as scheduledactivation and de-activation, logging and change management.”Leveraging CPlane Framework's core capabilities for discovery and provisioning, OpenTransit isdesigned to be compatible with other OpenFlow controllers. Since the CPlane Framework alreadysupports a variety of southbound interfaces including NETCONF, the system can simultaneouslycommunicate with devices using OpenFlow and the recently announced Open Networking FoundationOF-Config OpenFlow Configuration and Management Protocol.Simon Crosby, founder and CTO of Bromium, Inc., founder of XenSource, and founder of LAYERZngn's predecessor company, CPlane, Inc. noted, “Over a decade ago CPlane, Inc. aspired todeliver some of the powerful capabilities of SDN and OpenFlow. With this announcement, it has comefull circle. Combined with CPlane's capabilities to communicate with devices using their native CLI andprotocols such as NETCONF, this is impressive.”“We built OpenTransit to be fully-compliant with other OpenFlow controllers,” said John Casey,LAYERZngn's Chief Technology Officer. “But CPlane OpenTransit also takes full advantage of theCPlane Framework which has been production-proven managing upwards of 100,000 devices forapplications such as VPN services over MPLS-TE (Traffic Engineering).”According to James Liao, CEO of Pica8, Inc., a provider of open switch and router platforms for datacenter networks, “Out of the gate LAYERZngn's OpenFlow Controller has some unique capabilities suchas discovery and topology visualization. With its long list of other features it is going to generate a lot of interest.”In addition to leveraging the CPlane Framework's native capabilities such as topology discovery,visualization, persistence data store, logging, change management and checkpoint/rollback, theframework has been extended to incorporate:
 
· Support for a REST (Representational State Transfer) northbound interface compatible with existingOpenFlow Controller northbound APIs.· Enhancements to the CPlane Workflow Engine to enable applications written for other OpenFlowControllers, including open source implementations such as Floodlight, to be used with CPlaneOpenTransit.· A distributed asynchronous message processor and protocol adapter whichcan be deployed across multiple physical machines to handle communications from a very large numberof OpenFlow devices.· A transaction director which supports multiple simultaneous hot-installable OpenFlow forwardingpolicies, with switch slicing, bandwidth management and network partitioning.Based on customer priorities, CPlane plans to use its flexible interface capabilities to integrate withAmazon Web Services, OpenStack, Citrix CloudStack, Nimbula Director and other cloud managementsystems.AvailabilityLAYERZngn is currently conducting interoperability testing with a select number of partners. Interestedparties should contact LAYERZngn at www.cplane.net.About LAYERZngnLAYERZngn's products are based on the powerful CPlane Framework which LAYERZngn provides tostrategic customers to develop tailored applications for provisioning, orchestration and security in severalmarket sectors including service providers, systems vendors and IT automation suppliers.For more information visit: www.cplane.net.LAYERZngn, CPlane, OpenTransit, CPlane Discovery and CPlane Surveyor are trademarks of LAYERZngn.
