Coriant has joined the Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) Project that aims to help accelerate industry adoption of standards-based Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) capabilities that orchestrate and automate service delivery in cloud-centric, SDN-controlled networks.

Coriant is a leading provider of SDN-enabled, edge-to-core packet optical networking and DCI solutions.

By joining industry leaders in the ONAP Project, Coriant is reinforcing its commitment to open networks and standards-based software development. These capabilities will enable Coriant customers to cost-efficiently transition to next generation OSS environments and maximize the service value of SDN/NFV-enabled automation, programmability, and control.

Recently formed through the merger of open source ECOMP and Open Orchestrator Project (OPEN-O), two of the largest open source networking initiatives, the Open Network Automation Platform project is focused on creating a harmonized and comprehensive framework for real-time, policy-driven software automation of virtual network functions that will enable software, network, IT, and cloud providers and developers to rapidly create new services.

The ONAP Project includes participation by prominent networking suppliers and industry-leading service providers from around the world.

Open networks and SDN/NFV-enabled automation are key pillars of the Coriant Hyperscale Carrier Architecture, and contributions by the ONAP Project will strengthen the value proposition of this innovative approach while enhancing Coriant’s comprehensive suite of open, multi-layer SDN solutions.
