It’s alive! A software defined networking (SDN) operating system has been deployed to a “virtual slice” of Internet2’s national education network and turned on. Five institutional customers have already lined up to use it.

SDN uses a stack architecture to abstract the complexity of the physical network and enable changes programmatically without technical people having to touch the underlying operating systems or protocols running on various components.

The ONOS project is specifically developing an open source SDN networking operating system for service provider networks, such as the one run by Internet2 and its hosting site, GlobalNOC at Indiana University. The ONOS OS went live in December and since then various use cases have been implemented on it, including a graphical user interface that provides a view of the multi-layer network and “northbound abstractions” that allow applications and orchestration systems to program the network and request services from it.
