Cisco still dragging feet on OpenFlow
Cisco's software defined networking strategy is still vague after the company stated last fall that it planned to add the OpenFlow protocol and API to its Nexus switches, and with this week's much anticipated debut of network virtualization start-up Nicira.
And last week, Network Computing ran a story that said Cisco's SDN strategy and implementation may be proprietary and not based on OpenFlow, the open source network programmability technique developed at Stanford and UC Berkeley.
The pervading belief is that this would commoditize routing and switching hardware and leave it with little more than the ability to perform basic routing and switching. It would not be in Cisco's proprietary interest to allow this to happen to its hardware. Especially when the company is reporting bang up quarters in which it beats Wall Street estimates and jacks its stock price based on its status quo approach in which network configurability is a highly specialized and Cisco-specific - vendor-specific -- undertaking.
