    Find me on:

    CENX is proud to announce that in addition to being members of the Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF) and the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI); we’re now officially members of the Open Networking Foundation (ONF).

    The Open Networking Foundation (ONF) is a user-driven organization dedicated to the promotion and adoption of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) through open standards development. It’s one of the key groups working to define the scope and interworking of SDN, including the OpenFlow communications protocol, which gives access to the forwarding plane of a network switch or router from a centralized controller.

    Notably, ONF has introduced the OpenFlow™ Standard, on the data-control plane interface and has issued SDN architecture specifications. 

    At CENX, our Cortx products support open APIs, for easy interoperability with adjacent systems, such as REST API to SDN Controllers and Operations Support Systems (OSS).

    To learn more about the ONF’s role in defining SDN, download the white paper “Service Orchestration for Next-Generation SDN & NFV Networks”.
