There were many significant announcements at this year’s Open Networking Summit (ONS), held June 15-18, 2015 n Santa Clara, CA. Unlike in past year’s conferences, there were no vendor sales pitches or infommercials. That was certainly refreshing! However, ONS continues to focus on “pure SDN” (as per the ONF definition) vs. various other SDN reference architectures, such as network virtualization/overlay model. That’s largely because the ONS is closely aligned with the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) and ON.Lab (which developed the open source Open Network Operating System). Surprisingly, there were several companies (Google, Microsoft, AT&T) that said they were using OpenFlow (but not how) in their proprietary versions of SDN.

At the recent Open Networking Summit, a project demonstrated the implementation of next-generation networking technologies in telecom carriers’ central offices, re-architecting the infrastructure by using open standards software and commodity hardware to replace proprietary, fragmented systems.

Internet2 and the Open source SDN Network Operating System (ONOS) community, have recently announced that they have actively deployed ONOS on Internet2’s nationwide research and education (R&E) network through its NOC at the Indiana University, connecting four other educational institutions, including Duke University, Florida International University, University of Maryland at College Park and the University of Utah.
The Open Networking Foundation’s (ONF) Atrium (www.opensourcesdn.org), an open SDN software distribution, is designed to help the networking industry as a whole more easily adopt open SDN […] The first release, Atrium 2015/A, incorporates the Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), the Open Network Operating System (ONOS), and Open Compute Project (OCP) components.
Yukio Ito of NTT Communications talked about his company’s Transport Network Controller, a software that talks to OpenFlow switches, microwave devices, packet transport network devices, and optical networking gear. It’s run by a network management program based on the ONOS network operating system and Odenos, an open source orchestration framework that Ito said is being added to ONOS.
This year’s Open Networking Summit has been about joining open source to SDN. The conference is closely allied with the Open Networking Foundation and ON.Lab . On the other hand, I’ve seen OpenDaylight leadership hanging around, and there seems to be bad blood between ON.Lab and ODL. I keep hoping for a fight, but everything is cordial so far. Oh, well; there’s still another day.
A demo project at this week’s Open Networking Summit aims to pave the way for implementing next-generation networking technologies in telecom carriers’ central offices, using open standards software and commodity hardware to replace proprietary, fragmented systems. […] Called the Central Office Re-architected as Datacenter (CORD) proof-of-concept (POC), the effort is being led by ON.Lab and its Open Networking Operating System (ONOS) project in cooperation with AT&T as the service provider, with PMC-Sierra and Sckipio providing merchant silicon hardware components.
By developing these open-source, software-defined tools, the non-profit Open Networking Lab (ON.Lab) is helping to create a more programmable network that others can build on, customize and use with any brand of hardware.
In telecom news, AT&T and ONOS Project held the first CORD proof-of-concept demo at Open Networking Summit, while Los Angeles may deploy municipal Wi-Fi. In telecom news this week, the first Central Office Re-architectured as Data Center (CORD) proof-of-concept demonstration took place at the Open Networking Summit (ONS2015)…
SK Telecom is currently testing OpenDaylight controllers and ON.Lab’s Open Network Operating System (ONOS), Lee said. The company is also testing the use of OpenFlow for connecting controllers to the gear driving SK Telecom’s wireless backhaul.
The ONF is a member of the Linux Foundation and works closely with them for strategic alignment across all open source projects under the umbrella of both organizations. All ONF projects are considered to be part of Linux Foundation’s portfolio of projects.
