  • Deployments are accelerating as the technology matures with new cross-industry use cases from retail, enterprise, telecommunications, and more, all leveraging open source project blueprints and code
  • By combining open software and open hardware, Open Compute Project and Linux Foundation strengthen existing collaboration to develop market-ready solutions
  • Kohn’s next version of NAPO, named in honor of the late Dan Kohnbrings new features and new use cases, including E2E network slicing with RAN

SEATTLE, November 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — ONE Summit North America The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit enabling mass innovation through open source, and LF networkingthe enabler of collaboration and operational excellence in open source networking projects, and announced the evolution of the industry across the entire networking stack with new deployments, ecosystem collaborations , projects, versions, etc.

ONE Summit keynote address by the Linux Foundation’s Managing Director of Networking, Edge and IoT, Arpit Joshipurafocused on substantial ecosystem growth demonstrating the power and maturation of open source in the industry.

“The industry is past the tipping point when it comes to leveraging open source to enable digital transformation,” said Arpit Joshipura, Managing Director, Networking, Edge and IoT, The Linux Foundation. “Major organizations are using our project code – which continues to evolve and mature – in real-world, large-scale deployments. The collaborative community work across the ecosystem is humbling and awe-inspiring; we can not wait until you see what’s next!”

Points covered in today’s speech include:

Extended collaboration with OCP

First announced at last month’s Open Compute Summit, the Open Compute Project, the nonprofit bringing hyperscale innovations to everyone, and the Linux Foundation build on an existing foundation of collaboration made official for the first time in 2017. Both organizations are committed to leveraging a co-design strategy by establishing a framework for creating shared communities of joint efforts and coordinated deliverables.

Linux Foundation projects deployed in the real world

During the ONE Summit, it was announced that DENT, an open source ecosystem using the Linux kernel, Switchdev and other Linux-based projects, is now deployed by Amazon as part of its Just Walk Out technology in third-party customer stores around the world to streamline the customer experience and scale in-store operations.

Other organizations in enterprise, retail, government, education, vendors, and service providers leverage Linux Foundation Open Components to build platforms, solutions, frameworks, products, and services. LF Networking recently published several case studies featuring project deployments on ONAP, OpenDaylight, EMCO and by organizations including AT&T, Orange, Verizon, Equinix, Netgate, Spark New Zealand, Aarna Networks and more. Recent use cases from LF Edge Fledge, EdgeX Foundry, Akraino, and Open Horizon projects and include deployments from Archer Daniels/Canola Oil, IBM’s Mayflower Autonomous Ship, UC Davis, OpusOne Winery, and more.

Additionally, LF Edge introduced its first Introducing the end-to-end LF Edge solution at ONE Summit, with eight cross-project deployment demos.

Release ONAP “Kohn”

The eleventh version of NAPO, available in the coming weeks, has been named “Kohn” in honor of the late Dan Kohn. Kohn, who died in 2021, was a pioneer in the open source cloud native space, having led the Linux Foundation’s sister project, Cloud Native Computing Foundation, for many years.

ONAP Kohn will bring new features and enhancements to ONAP, including:

  • End-to-end network slicing with RAN, Transport and Core, aligned with O-RAN A1 policy and IETF transport
  • Improved SON use case
  • Autonomous Intent-Driven Closed-Loop Network
  • New functionality in the Cross-Carrier VPN (CCVPN) use case,

5G Super Blue Print: multiple collaboration in an open world

LFN’s 5G Super Blue Print, which provides communications providers and enterprises around the world with a comprehensive architecture on how to deliver a total solution – featuring high-bandwidth, low-latency, scalable digital network infrastructure and cost-effective – from end-user device to cloud applications, continues to evolve. Several member companies and open source organizations (including sister project LF Edge) continue to develop an end-to-end working infrastructure to support Industry 4.0 and 5G-enabled use cases.

The ONE Summit Day 2 keynote will highlight the latest proof of concept (PoC) on stage with a factory worker safety use case. In addition, the LFN Developer & Testing Forum, following the ONE Summit, November 17-18will present practical opportunities with 5G Super Blue Print use cases.

The L3AF project publishes its first version

L3AF, a vendor-independent multi-cloud eBPF as a service The orchestration system that provides complete lifecycle management of eBPF programs across multiple clouds has just released its first release, L3AF R1. LF Networking’s newest project, which joined the umbrella in 2021, offers the first open-source, cross-platform multi-cloud environment to enable eBPF as a service. With support from Walmart Global Tech and Wipro, L3AF R1 adds support for chaining and queue calls managed through the L3AF API. More information about L3AF and the R1 version are available here.
