Open Networking is fast becoming a reality. Are you ready?

August 18, 2016

Watch this recorded webinar and you will see a live programming example using Broadcom’s OpenNSL and OCP's Open Network Linux. Programming the low-level internals of a data center switch is quickly becoming a reality. 

In this webinar, we show you exactly how to do this using OCP's Open Network Linux (ONL) bare metal switch distribution and Broadcom's OpenNSL programming library to do basic packet forwarding operations  OpenNSL is a suite of network switch APIs that is openly available for programming Broadcom network switch silicon-based platforms. OpenNSL software enables the development of new applications on top of Broadcom StrataXGS® and StrataDNX™ switches, giving customers the flexibility to tailor their network equipment and meet their unique infrastructure requirements.  Open Network Linux packages up OpenNSL along with various kernel drivers, configuration options, and networking switch hardware abstractions to simplify development and provide cross-platform APIs. 

In this webinar, we discuss:

  • Big Point #1:  How OpenNSL is the switch programming API
  • Big Point #2:  How ONL is the switch-programming environment.
