ONF Overview - Open Networking Foundation

The merger of ON.Lab with ONF presents member companies a unique opportunity to work with leading network operators to transform networks into agile platforms for service delivery while streamlining network operations by leveraging the DevOps model with cloud, open source and whitebox efficiencies. The SDN movement, first initiated by the ONF, has successfully set in motion the disaggregation of networking devices and control software and fostered the emergence of a broad range of open source platforms. Now, the industry needs a unifying effort to build solutions out of the complexity of the numerous disaggregated components. The ONF helps members navigate this complexity by first providing a complete open source platform that pulls together the foundation pieces for creating solutions.

Over the last year, the hottest topics in networking have been software-defined networking (SDN) and Network Virtualization (NV).

SDN 101: An Introduction to Software Defined Networking

There is, however, considerable confusion amongst enterprise IT organizations relative to these topics. There are many sources of that confusion, including the sheer number of vendors who have solutions that solve different problems using different solution architectures and technologies, all of whom claim to be offering SDN and/or NV solutions. To eliminate that confusion, it’s helpful to put SDN into the context of a broad movement to have more of a focus on software based solutions and to identify the key opportunities that SDN can address. It’s also helpful to review both SDN and NV to understand the relationship between these two emerging approaches to networking. Traditional data network In the traditional approach to networking, most network functionality is implemented in a dedicated appliance; i.e., switch, router, application delivery controller. Software-Defined Networking (SDN) Definition - Open Networking Foundation. What is SDN?

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) Definition - Open Networking Foundation

The physical separation of the network control plane from the forwarding plane, and where a control plane controls several devices. Software-Defined Networking (SDN) is an emerging architecture that is dynamic, manageable, cost-effective, and adaptable, making it ideal for the high-bandwidth, dynamic nature of today's applications. This architecture decouples the network control and forwarding functions enabling the network control to become directly programmable and the underlying infrastructure to be abstracted for applications and network services.

The OpenFlow® protocol is a foundational element for building SDN solutions. The SDN architecture is: OpenFlow - Open Networking Foundation. OpenFlow® is the first standard communications interface defined between the control and forwarding layers of an SDN architecture.

OpenFlow - Open Networking Foundation

OpenFlow® allows direct access to and manipulation of the forwarding plane of network devices such as switches and routers, both physical and virtual (hypervisor-based). OpenFlow-based SDN technologies enable IT to address the high-bandwidth, dynamic nature of today's applications, adapt the network to ever-changing business needs, and significantly reduce operations and management complexity.

For historical information about the origins of OpenFlow® at Stanford University prior to the creation of ONF, please see ONF Technical Library - Open Networking Foundation. Technical Communities within ONF work on a variety of SDN related projects, and publish specifications, open source software, technical recommendations, and related documents like white papers, case studies, and solution briefs to address issues related to the deployment of SDN in production networks.

ONF Technical Library - Open Networking Foundation

Specifications – Includes all standards that define a protocol, information model, functionality of components and related framework documents. It is this category of Technical Specification that is identified as such because it is a normative publication that has the ONF IPR policy and licensing guiding its further use. ONF BLOG. Technologies that are set to change the world are starting to emerge.


What does this mean for networking? Mike McBride shares his thoughts. Last month, alongside 175,000 of my closest friends, I attended CES in Las Vegas and witnessed a staggering amount of connected devices. Software Defined Virtual Networks. Background Data networks have enabled extraordinary growth in capabilities such as email, the web, and social media; and today form the technical basis for our information-centric economy[1].

Software Defined Virtual Networks

However, current network architectures and processes for technical evolution cannot support the complexity and pace innovation in emerging applications such as Virtualized / Cloud Computing, Internet of Things, ubiquitous Mobile Computing and Big Data Analytics. Today’s industry norm of deploying special purpose, fixed-function hardware appliances (e.g., routers, switches, firewalls, load balancers) that implement standardized protocols no longer scales with the required pace of innovation for new services, nor the economics of modern virtualized computing.

Layer 2 Services

CIOs and IT staff can now provide a turnkey solution for balancing long-term or short-term global big data science collaborations and production services. Enabling scalable and flexible global access to an open exchange network, members can build Layer 2 circuits (VLANs) between endpoints on the Internet2 Network and beyond. The service meets the wide-ranging needs of the research and education community—both now and into the future. AL2S allows users to create their own VLANs on the Internet2 AL2S backbone. Features Some features of Internet2's Advanced Layer 2 Service are: STATIC VLANs: point-to-point or multipoint, configured on demand by the user through a portal.

Article August 2015 Microsoft IT has the enormous job of rolling out business intelligence (BI) solutions to more than 200,000 people within the company.

Top five things to avoid when deploying BI at Microsoft

Learn the top five things not to do in rolling out BI within a large organization, and potentially save time, money—and embarrassment. 1. Avoid a top-down approach In what many would call the "bad old days" of how IT and the larger business interacted, there was an expectation that IT simply took orders from the business. Microsoft found that a better approach to this relationship is to frame it as a partnership, with IT enabling business through a quicker, highly iterative process.

In addition, just as Microsoft IT responds better when organizations avoid top-down mandates, so too do knowledge workers and other employees who rely on IT respond better when they are empowered to use BI tools themselves. 2. In a related way, people don't like to feel forced into adopting a technology just because it's there. 3. 4. 5. Conclusion Resources.
