Membership Structure

The ONOS® project’s mission is to work with the community to produce the Open Source Network Operating System that will enable network operators to build real Software Defined Networks (SDN) and accelerate SDN innovation and adoption. ONOS Project Membership is open to everyone who wants to contribute meaningfully to the project and benefit from open source ONOS and SDN. The ONOS project offers a tiered membership structure to enable a diversity of organizations as well as individuals to participate.

Detailed information on the membership tiers is available in the ONOS Membership Agreement.

They provide a significant portion of the funding to achieve the ONOS project’s mission. “Partner” membership is targeted at organizations that are industry thought leaders and committed to furthering Open Source ONOS project and SDN efforts. They have the most influence on the Board of Advisors and benefit the most from joint marketing activities.
