OpenFlow a standard for network virtualization


Virtualization for networks is going to be the next big thing in disruptive networking. There are already startups raising VC money e.g. BigSwitch just raised $13.75M. Another example is iwNetworks.

The expected route is that we will first see “normal network equipment” being virtualized for it to be followed by a new generation of virtual services that are really disruptive.
