OPEN-O- Any Service Over Any Network (archive available soon)
Over the past year, open source networking had climbed up the stack, resulting in a number of open orchestration initiatives.
OPEN-O is a new Linux Foundation Collaborative Project, that bridges NFV and SDN by enabling operators to orchestrate composite services based on a wide range of VNFs that may be dynamically deployed over SDN and legacy network services.
In less than 5 months from the formation of the project, OPEN-O delivered its initial release, leveraging among the world's largest carriers and vendors.
In this webinar, the OPEN-O leadership will provide an overview of the OPEN-O project, including the architecture, key technologies, and project status. We will also share China Telecom's perspective on OPEN-O as CT pursues their CTNet2025 SDN/NFV architecture for the future.
