Reigniting Innovation with HP’s SDN Open Ecosystem, Software Development Kit & an App Store?

ks.jpgBy Kash Shaikh, Senior Director Product & Technical Marketing, HP Networking  


One of the hallmarks of HP is innovation. HP founders Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard started the company in their garage and started Silicon Valley as a result; and at HP we foster and deliver innovation in many ways including HP Labs—where we perform research on new technologies, years ahead of where the rest of the industry is ready to put it into products.

Over the last year and a half, we’ve been talking about those innovations; now we’re taking the next major step necessary for any marketplace to adopt SDN in greater numbers.


I am excited to share with you the news we announced today at Interop New York, the creation of an open SDN ecosystem with that will open up SDN and jump start innovation with two major steps.

Gartner recently released its 2013 Wired and Wireless LAN Access Layer Magic Quadrant and HP is positioned in the leader’s quadrant for the second consecutive time.
