Product Description

Deployed together with the NEC ProgrammableFlow Controller, the NEC ProgrammableFlow PF5820 delivers extensive network virtualization, multipath, security, and programmability capabilities. This pure OpenFlow® switch offers 1.2 Terabits per second non-blocking bidirectional throughput in a 1U form factor. Like the 5240, the PF5820 dramatically reduces network operation costs by eliminating the need for traditional distributed protocols such as Spanning Tree and OSPF. It offers 48x SFP+ ports that operate at 10GbE, and 4XQSFP+ ports that operate at 40GbE or as 16 additional 10GbE ports. This 10G/40G low latency switch provides the best combination of low latency, non-blocking line rate switching and ease of management.
