Building Networks For The Next 20 Years
(Monday, August 03, 2015 3:00:13 PM IST)
An overarching trend sweeping the industries that combine to create IT infrastructure is the embrace of open, inter-company collaboration on core technology. There have been plenty of examples of corporate affection for open source of late, however the trend was on full display at the recent OpenDaylight Summit where network hardware vendors, component suppliers, telecom companies, software developers and online service providers came together to plot the future of software defined networks (SDN) and cloud provisioned services. The OpenDaylight project, under the auspices of the Linux Foundation and sponsored by 50 (and growing) organizations, exists to catalyze and direct projects that address network plumbing. By shepherding the strategy and development of full stack SDN, from physical switches to virtual network appliances, OpenDaylight hopes to do for networks infrastructure and services what server virtualization and automation have done for cloud services and business applications.
