6WIND, the gold standard for software-defined networks, today announced that it has joined SDNCentral, the independent community for network virtualization and software-defined networking. As the #1 commercial supplier of high-performance data plane software for SDN-based applications, 6WIND provides solutions that perfectly complement the products from other SDNCentral member companies, enabling the development of both physical and virtual networking appliances with industry-leading cost/performance.

The 6WINDGate Cloud Edition software includes an integrated suite of optimized networking protocols matched to the specific data plane requirements of network appliances.
