The Open Networking User Group (ONUG) is kicking off a set of industry initiatives focused on open IT frameworks and software-defined infrastructure:
- Open SD-WAN Exchange (OSE)
- Open Interoperable Control Plane (OICP)
- Open Traffic Management Format (OTMF)
- Open Network State Format (ONSF)
“The new open industry initiatives will promote collaboration amongst vendors, academics, standards and open source organizations, and enterprise IT business leaders that is vital in bringing the ONUG Community closer to the open software-defined infrastructure they require,” said Nick Lippis, Co-Chairman and Co-Founder of ONUG. “I would like to commend these trailblazing participants for the role they are playing in steering this movement, which will ultimately work to benefit both IT buyers and sellers.”
