September 2015, Mayflex the distributor of Converged IP Solutions, has signed an agreement with Big Switch Networks, a provider of supportable Hyper scaling Software Defined Networking products. With roots in the original Stanford research team that invented Software Defined Networking (SDN), the company is widely considered one of the original SDN pioneers with one of the industry’s broadest portfolios of enabling technologies for SDN.

The company began packaging technology components in to Bare Metal SDN Fabric Solutions, bringing together the advanced feature sets enabled by SDN software with the industry leading price points provided by bare metal switches. The company’s Big Monitoring Fabric is an entry level solution to a highly scalable, low cost, feature rich monitoring fabric for existing networks, and the flagship Big Cloud Fabric is the industry’s most advanced bare metal SDN switching fabric intended for new data center pods such as private cloud, big data and virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI). Big Cloud Fabric automatically collaborates with technologies like VMWare NSX and OpenStack, allowing for Hyper Scale data centre networks to be deployed on bare metal switches in a highly cost efficient way.
