NAIM Networks’ COD is SDDC verification platform configured identical to real-world datacenter environment. Through the platform, customers experience the next generation SDDC, where SDN is the center of the entire datacenter control. Integration of various network equipment and applications yields the major strength of COD platform, which is to provide customers firsthand insight and hands-on experience on how the next generation SDDC could and should be operated. Major vendors and developers including VMWare, Dell, Big Switch Networks, Pluribus Networks, Fortinet, F5 Networks, Ixia, Riverbed, NetvisionTelecom, Credif and Piolink are actively participating in the development of COD platform.

NAIM Networks, INC. 3rd Floor, 621 Building, 621 Yeongdongdaero, Kangnamgu, Seoul, Korea www.naimnetworks.com T. +82.2.552.0555 F. +82.2.512.9889 While the concept of customized platform assembled by multiple vendors based on open architecture has been among us for a while, NAIM Networks’ COD is the world’s first case to actualize the sophisticated integration as a form of practical testbed. As a key facilitator to bind the outstanding international and domestic companies together on the effort to COD development, NAIM Networks is regarded to raise Korean SDN industry’s statue to a higher level. SDN, called as one of ‘disruptive innovations’ by network industry analysts, is seen as the key concept for the new era of networking. Leaving the initial research and testing period behind, SDN technology has been gaining significant market momentum from the second half of 2015, and various use-cases to be applied to operational networks are expected to appear in 2016. Victor Lyou, CEO of NAIM Networks said, “The fundamental philosophy of COD is to propose potential customers automation and management methodologies for SDDC environment, and to build up verified standard framework that they can easily adopt.” He underscored that “The purpose of COD is help customers break away from vendor dependency and bring back the total control of their own datacenter network operation.” Formal launching of COD platform is expected to be on January 2015 with a designated showroom in the company’s relocated office. While COD platform is currently on pre-open status with 80 percent completion, interests among potential customers including more than 20 teams visited and experienced COD platform are already picking up rapidly. Carrying up this momentum, NAIM Networks strategically aspires to invite at least 200 customers worldwide, implement 10+ use cases and create 50M USD market. Through this initiative, it is anticipated that the data center networking market share of Cisco, the incumbent leader of the market, would drop by at least 10 percent. NAIM Networks firmly believes this new strategy of vendors and developers’ alliance will strengthen the collaborative ecosystem and can shake up the current dynamics of the market. The company aims to broadly widen the options to choose for customers through maintaining its vendor-neutral strategy and interconnecting various verified and qualified solutions. About NAIM Networks Established in Sep. 2013, Korea’s first SDN expert company NAIM Networks boldly brought up a topic of SDN to network industry, where the technical advancement has been remained sluggish for the last 20 years. The company aims to redefine the entire network industry ecosystem ranging from equipment provision, implementation to operation and management. As SDN total solution provider, NAIM Networks is leading the dissemination of SDN with its main business areas including integrated SDN implementation, consulting & training and SDN application development. Its Customer Optimized Dataceter (COD), developed through tight collaboration with major global vendors, provides tangible de facto next generation datacenter standards to customers through the company’s dedicated demonstration program. NAIM Networks also established Asia’s first SDN specialized training center. ‘Tango’ and ‘Jive’, the company’s self- developed SDN applications is planned to be launched soon.
