Comcast has become the first cable operator to join ON.Lab's open source initiatives - Open Network Operating System(ONOS) and Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter (CORD).

The diverse ONOS and CORD communities comprise service provider partners AT&T, China Unicom, Comcast, Google, NTT Communications, SK Telecom, and Verizon; vendors Ciena, Cisco, Ericsson (ONOS only), Fujitsu, Huawei (ONOS only), Intel, NEC, Nokia, Radisys and Samsung.

Comcast, like the many network operators and service providers, is leveraging these emerging technologies as it evolves its network to meet next-generation demands. A key component of the evolution is software distribution of the platform stack comprising ONOS, an SDN OS for service providers with scalability, high availability, high performance and the right abstractions to make it easy to create apps and services.

The mission of these open source initiatives is the enablement of service delivery platforms for creating and deploying new services at cloud-like speed, independent of the access network architecture. As an open source service delivery platform, it combines SDN, NFV, and elastic cloud services.

Dr. Nagesh Nandiraju, Director, Network Architecture at Comcast
Software defined networking and network functions virtualization are powerful, fast-evolving tools for network transformation. We look forward to bringing our perspective and experience to the fantastic community of technologists already working on these open source projects.

Guru Parulkar, executive director and board member of ON.Lab and ONF
New mobile, IoT and analytics applications are pushing businesses in every industry to embrace a more flexible, open and scalable infrastructure. The addition of Comcast to the ON.Lab community signifies the technology's relevance to companies beyond telecommunications.
