The Open Networking Foundation (ONF) named Criterion Network Labs (CNLabs) in Bangalore as its fourth international conformance and interoperability testing facility.
CNLabs joins the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL), Beijing Internet Institute (BII), and the Indiana Center for Network Translational Research and Education (InCNTRE) in testing SDN products for compliance with the OpenFlow specification through the ONF OpenFlow Conformance Testing Program.
As an ONF-accredited testing facility, CNLabs establishes OpenFlow conformance testing capabilities in India and provides SDN testing services to global clients. CNLabs evaluates vendor’s networking products for conformance, performance, and interoperability, and offers vendors the opportunity to receive OpenFlow certification through ONF Conformance Testing Program.
The networking industry is undergoing a refreshing change. SDN provides a framework through which networks can be administered, programmed, and made to scale seamlessly, said Jayaprakash Kumar, director of Criterion Network Labs. OpenFlow provides the method for ensuring consistency, promoting device interoperability, and allowing for a level of flexibility to the network operator that has not been seen before. We are delighted to be named the first ONF-approved testing facility in India and the second in Asia.
