ONF and TIP Two Open Source Organizations Jointly Promote The Development Of Open Source Optical Transmission
4/1/2019, ONF and Facebook's leading open source communication network architecture plan TIP (Telecom Infra Project) announced a joint effort to promote the development of open source optical transmission technology. The ONF and ODTN (Open Decoupling Transport Network) project and the TIP OOPT (Open Source Optical Network and Packet Transport) group originally had the same goal. Later, they gradually formed complementary development paths in the evolution, and have already carried out many cooperative demonstrations.
ONF's ODTN was established in May last year with software centralization as the goal of creating an open source software stack for open source decoupled optical transport networks and OLS systems. Their work became part of the ONF reference design and was incorporated into the overall strategic planning of the ONF. TIP's OOPT is more focused on developing open source decoupled platform devices, including Voyager transponder/packet switch, next-generation packet optical transponder Cassini and decoupled base station gateway DCSG. They also developed Transponder abstract interface TAI and GNPy open source optical network planning. tool. Work on OLS has also been included in the scope of OOPT.
The ONF and TIP organizations have jointly conducted a number of ODTN software and OOPT hardware collaborations on occasions including OFC2019. In these demonstrations, ONF ONOS software was used to manage the Cassini platform, and the ONF Transfer API (TAPI) became Northbound interface of SDN. In the future, the two organizations will also be mulling more cooperation, such as, for example, GNPy for the planning and optimization of optical routing, and ONOS is used to provide details of the network. Open light elements such as ROADM and OLS, as well as future products and API specifications, will also be included in the collaboration.
