Barefoot Networks this week announced significant market momentum, driven by growing global demand for the flexibility and insights offered by programmable forwarding plane technology.
The Company claims major customer wins for its newly launched Tofino switch since Q4 2016 which includes AT&T and Chinese internet giants Alibaba Group, Baidu and Tencent.
Using Tofino and In-band Network Telemetry (INT), AT&T gained deep insight into their network down to packet-level for the first time, helping to avoid any bottlenecks caused by path or latency variation, said Barefoot networks.
Barefoot has also expanded its ecosystem by partnering with several global equipment manufacturers based in Asia. To date, the company said it has announced go-to-market partnerships with Edgecore Networks, WNC, H3C, Ruijie and ZTE. These existing partnerships allow Barefoot to meet the growing demand for programmable networking in a wide range of network environments.
Additional partnerships will expand Barefoot's reach to OEMs in North America and beyond.
