Sckipio Supports NETCONF and YANG

Sckipio Technologies' Distribution Point Unit (DPU) can now be SDN-controlled via the Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF), using the standard YANG data model, and with traffic managed via OpenFlow. The support for NETCONF YANG and OpenFlow is part of Sckipio’s new Management Stack, the first management stack designed from scratch to enable software-defined network (SDN) control on devices.

“ is the ultra-broadband access technology for the 21st century and demands a modern approach to device management,” said David Baum, co-founder and CEO of Sckipio. “Instead of simply supporting outdated, proprietary management approaches, Sckipio is giving OEMs and ultimately operators, complete control and management of equipment using open solutions.”

Sckipio state-of-the-art management platform and networking stack includes NETCONF YANG, CLI, SNMP, IGMP, DHCP, MSTP, Y.1731 and CFM support, and is designed to comply with all relevant Broadband Forum management specifications (WT-301, WT-318/355 drafts) as they are released.

The Sckipio Management Stack is available now and runs on the PMC-Sierra WinPath family of network processors.
