IBM System Networking Wins Golden Bridge Award for Business Innovation
I am delighted to report that IBM received the 4th Annual Golden Bridge Award for Business Innovation. The award was given for System Networking’s IBM RackSwitch G8264 with OpenFlow. IBM is leading the way in driving one of the foremost innovations in business technology -- Software Defined Networking (SDN). IBM is one of the first vendors to implement a new data center networking protocol known as OpenFlow for the enterprise. Software Defined Networking using OpenFlow has been standardized through the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) with the collaboration of global network and cloud operators, universities and research labs, and led by IBM and other industry leaders.
