NEW! ONUG Open IT Framework Industry Initiatives
Four ONUG Working Groups – Virtual Networks/Overlays, SD-WAN, Traffic Monitoring/Visibility, and Network State Collection, Correlation, and Analytics – have transitioned into new industry initiatives with the goal of developing open source code and standards based upon the previously identified use case requirements.
The four new initiatives are as follows and will host workshops at NYU in June, July, September, and October:
1. Open SD-WAN Exchange (OSE)
2. Open Interoperable Control Plane (OICP)
3. Open Traffic Management Format (OTMF)
4. Open Network State Format (ONSF)
The ONUG Board’s Six Steps to a Common Networking Ecosystem
1. Common automatic discovery, provisioning and asset registration
2. Common DevOps/NetOps automated orchestration tools for network configuration and change management
3. Common control mechanism for physical and virtual switches plus routers
4. Common baseline policy that is standard among all vendors and enforced by common controller environment
5. Common state management database that is a standard among all vendors so that network state is automatically captured for all physical and virtual network devices.
6. Common integrated monitoring of overlay and underlay open networks
The Open Networking Promise
Together, the Working Group requirements and Six Steps support the ONUG Open Networking Promise, outline the following benefits of adopting open networking and SDN technologies:
- – A fundamentally new Total Cost of Network Ownership model that radically lowers OpEx and CapEx
- – Software ecosystem: where rapid innovation is injected into the industry
- – Vendor-independent network design flexibility
- – Centralized network management tools and views
- – Most importantly, faster IT delivery and more efficient business process
