The NoviWare™ Network Operating System is the networking industry’s highest performance implementation of SDN, featuring Open, programmable match-action pipelines optimized for high performance switching chipsets such as the Mellanox NP-4 and NP-5 and Barefoot’s 6.5 Tbps Tofino chip. Architected from the ground up to be a reliable, scalable platform for OpenFlow, gRPC, and P4- Runtime, NoviWare offers the industry’s most complete implementation of the OpenFlow 1.3/1.4/1.5 standard as well as a smooth upgrade path to the next generation of PISA architecture based SDN applications and solutions. NoviWare is ideal for use in switches, WAN IP/MPLS routers, network appliances and other high-bandwidth forwarding planes.
NoviWare has been deployed around the world in NoviFlow’s NoviSwitch™ products and is also offered via software license to OEM and ODM switching platform suppliers. NoviWare is available for use in production networks in equipment running the Mellanox NP-5 and the Barefoot Tofino as well as being supported on the X86 platforms for use in network application development and testing.
By supporting Open Standards, NoviWare frees customers from vendor lock-in, enabling them to choose best-of-breed solutions for their networks instead of restricting them to vertically integrated silos.
One of NoviWare’s greatest competitive advantages is that it follows a software development cycle, resulting in up to three major software upgrades per year and thus offers long in-service lifetimes for devices using NoviWare. It also means that the capabilities of NoviWare can be quickly and easily extended to meet evolving customer needs.
