CORD Mini Summit


CORD (Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter) combines NFV, SDN, and the elasticity of commodity clouds to bring datacenter economics and cloud agility to the Telco Central Office. CORD has emerged as a very useful and powerful systems platform for service providers and it is gaining lot of traction and momentum among providers and vendors. The ONOS Partnership with other collaborating organizations plan to launch CORD as an open source systems project during the next couple of months. An open reference implementation of CORD built from commodity servers, white-box switches, and open source software defines a general and extensible platform that supports a variety of domains and business units.

Join us for the CORD Mini-Summit to hear experts from the CORD community share all the information you need to know about this project. Talks will cover the CORD architecture, along with CORD services developed for residential, enterprise, and mobile domains. There is also an informal coffee break planned where you can talk with CORD community members.


Access to ONOS Mini Summit is included as part of ONS2016 conference registration. Option for separate registration only for ONOS Mini Summit is not available.
