Open Networking Foundation

The Open Networking Foundation (ONF) is a non-profit operator led consortium driving transformation of network infrastructure and carrier business models.

We are an open, collaborative, community of communities. The ONF serves as the umbrella for a number of projects building solutions by leveraging network disaggregation, white box economics, open source software and software defined standards to revolutionize the carrier industry, including among others:

  • Stratum: thin switch implementing next generation SDN interfaces.
  • Trellis: multi-purpose leaf-spine fabric supporting distributed access networks, NFV and edge cloud applications.
  • ODTN: open and disaggregated source data center interconnect solution.
  • SEBA: lightweight platform that supports a multitude of virtualized access technologies at the edge of the carrier network, including PON, G.Fast and eventually DOCSIS and more.
  • SD-RAN: Complementary to the O-RAN architecture, it includes a near-real-time RIC (nRT-RIC) and a set of exemplar xApps for controlling the RAN.
  • Aether: the first open source 5G Connected Edge platform for enabling enterprise digital transformation.
