Ready to move from proprietary virtualisation to OpenStack?
Open Network Operating System
The ONOS® project was formed to pursue our vision of what networking could be for the public good.
Networks have become a very critical infrastructure for the society. However, they are currently closed, proprietary, complex, operationally expensive, inflexible – in a nutshell, they impede innovation and progress rather than enabling them.
We have a vision of what networking could be through the promise of Software Defined Networking (SDN). SDN separates the control plane from the data plane freeing software innovation cycles to become independent of hardware innovation cycles. SDN accelerates Internet and Cloud innovation while significantly reducing the costs of building and operating networks.
Kubernetes on Ubuntu
Ubuntu is the reference platform for Kubernetes on all major public clouds, including official support in Google’s GKE, Microsoft’s AKS and Amazon’s EKS CAAS offerings. We deliver pure upstream Kubernetes tested across the widest range of clouds — from public clouds to private data centres, from bare metal to virtualised infrastructure.
Open Networking Automation Platform
ONAP provides a comprehensive platform for real-time, policy-driven orchestration and automation of physical and virtual network functions that will enable software, network, IT and cloud providers and developers to rapidly automate new services and support complete lifecycle management. By unifying member resources, ONAP is accelerating the development of a vibrant ecosystem around a globally shared architecture and implementation for network automation–with an open standards focus–faster than any one product could on its own.
Communications providers and enterprises alike are eager to build or adapt their networks to be more flexible and responsive to their organizations’ and customers’ needs. At the same time, they are driving network automation to improve operational efficiency. OpenDaylight, the largest open source SDN controller, is helping lead this transition.
OpenDaylight (ODL) is a modular open platform for customizing and automating networks of any size and scale. The OpenDaylight Project arose out of the SDN movement, with a clear focus on network programmability. It was designed from the outset as a foundation for commercial solutions that address a variety of use cases in existing network environments.

Central Office Re-Architected as a Datacenter
CORD Vision – The shared goal of the project is to promote the building of network edge facilities from cloud hardware and software technologies. More details about this Vision are presented in the next section, and while we can expect this Vision to evolve over time, it does establish the common ground for all CORD-related efforts.
CORD Architecture – A collection of interfaces and models that define a particular way to achieve the CORD Vision. Today there is one Reference Architecture (defined later in this document), but other Architectures are possible.
CORD Implementation – An integrated collection of hardware and software components that implement a CORD Architecture. There is one open reference implementation today that implements the Reference Architecture (defined later in this document), but other implementations are possible.
CORD Solution – A specific configuration/customization of a CORD Implementation targeted at a particular use case. Several example Solutions are available in today’s Reference Implementation, each centered on a different access technology (e.g., R-CORD, M-CORD, E-CORD), but this is a short-term situation. A much richer collection of Solutions, including ones that support multiple access technologies, are expected in the near future.
CORD Platform – The subset of a CORD Implementation that is common to all CORD Solutions. The components that make up the Platform in today’s Reference Implementation (the Reference Platform) are described later in this document. It is also possible to give an architectural definition of a CORD Platform in terms of the models and interfaces of a CORD Architecture.
CORD Distribution – A packaging and release of implementation components, tailored for a particular user community. Today there is one Distribution—it is exactly the same as the Reference Implementation and includes both the Reference Platform and a collection of Reference Solutions—but multiple Distributions are possible, and they need not be mutually exclusive. For example, different organizations could prepare Distributions that include the same Reference Platform, but different combinations of Solutions.
