EAST BRUNSWICK, N.J.,andBARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS -- The Aricent Group, a global innovation and technology
services company, today demonstrated the Software Defined Networking (SDN) /
OpenFlow readiness of Intelligent Switching Solutions (ISS) to some of its key
customers and partners. ISS framework is used by 125+ customers worldwide in
their routing and switching platforms.

SDN is rapidly emerging at the forefront of next-generation networking. By
decoupling the control and data planes in network switches and routers, SDN
enables rapid innovation and optimization of routing and switching equipment.

Aricent's SDN expertise covers the entire gamut of SDN technologies including
SDN Controllers, OpenFlow Switches and Application APIs. "Making the
Intelligent Switching Solutions framework OpenFlow-ready further underscores
our commitment to the SDN revolution," said Sridhar Raju, assistant vice
president and head of the wireline communications practice at Aricent.

Aricent's ISS framework is compatible with hybrid OpenFlow switches and can be
easily integrated into enterprise, transport, and data centre networks.
Aricent is working on an array of SDN controller applications that include
support for critical functions like operations, administration and
maintenance, lawful intercept, and optimized mobile backhaul. SDN and OpenFlow
have compelling use cases in VM mobility management, dynamic bandwidth
management, network convergence, and mobile backhaul optimizations. The
company has a strong focus on developing portable application frameworks for
SDN controllers, especially the northbound APIs.

Aricent will be demonstrating the SDN software frameworks at Mobile World
Congress 2013 in Barcelona. To see a live demo, visit their hospitality suite
at #2B104 in Hall 2 on February 25 – 28, 2013.
