ONOS Releases Falcon Continuing Momentum to Transform Service Provider Networks With SDN and NFV

March 14, 2016

The ONOS community today announced the availability of its latest software release, Falcon. As a leading open source SDN Network Operating System for Service Providers, the new release features additional support for Central Office Re-Architected as a Data Center (CORD), many new applications and more support for southbound protocols.

ONOS allows partners, collaborators and individuals to build real SDN and NFV products and solutions. Continuing a quarterly cadence, this is the 6th release since the ONOS project became public in December 2014.

The ONOS community continues rapid growth with the addition of more than a dozen new collaborators joining the project since the beginning of the year. The key area for new collaborators has been helping with the broadening role of Central Office Re-Architected as a Data Center (CORD), which now has PoCs being developed for the mobile and enterprise domains, as well as the residential domain demonstrated in summer 2015. Leading service providers like SK Telecom, Verizon, China Unicom, and NTT Communications are driving the CORD PoCs.
