Join the Open-Source NOS Revolution!

Why the Open-source NOS stack?

Open networking is challenging the status-quo of the networking industry with disaggregated hardware and software, similar to the transformation that happened with x86 compute and Linux software. Software for Open Networking in the Cloud (SONiC) and Open Network Linux (ONL), together, create a revolutionary open-source NOS stack for collaborative development in networking. This standardization of hardware and NOS drives commoditization of box-based networking, while simultaneously enabling innovations at the upper layers of the networking stack.

End-users Benefits

Large, software-driven organizations such as service providers, SaaS, cloud providers as well universities conducting networking research can tailor the Open-source NOS stack for their specific needs and gain several benefits.

Innovation Velocity, Increased Flexibility, Freedom of Choice, and Reduced Cost
