Re: OpenFlow for Comware

Hi Thomas,

 

Yes - we're going directly to OpenFlow 1.3 on these products.

 

The 5900 is first, and I believe should have OF 1.3 support already.  Other products will follow throughout 2014.

Re: OpenFlow for Comware

Hello,

interesting. I just checked the 5900 product specification, latest firmware releases and configuration guide and could

not find any information whatsoever about OpenFlow. So it is probably not released yet. By any chance do you know

if OpenFlow will also come 5800? I'm asking because I have several 5800 devices in production.

 

Cheers,

       Thomas

Yes - that's the current intent, although the testing and release date haven't been scheduled yet.

Re: OpenFlow for Comware

Hi Mohammed - no - HP doesn't implement new features on products that have been discontinued.  The replacement switch in this class (HP 3800) already does OpenFlow.

Keep an eye out for Comware v7 R2307. It should be posted next week, and will support OpenFlow 1.3.1 for the 5900 series switches.
