The idea of universal operating system for networking is long overdue. We recorded a podcast with John talking about dNOS that will publish on Packet Pushers in a few weeks if you want to know more.
“Our goal with open sourcing the dNOS project is to create a community around an open framework to software-enable industry-standard white box hardware designs, such as those contributed to the Open Compute Project,” said John Medamana, vice president of Packet Optical Network, AT&T. “We’re excited to work with The Linux Foundation to bring this concept to reality. We invite others to join us to build the community and support this effort.”
