Intent-Based Networking vendor, Apstra announced deployment of the first AOS supported deployment of OpenSwitch (OPX) on Dell Z9100-ON switches in a Tier 1 service provider production network.

Astra AOS simplifies data center network design, build and operation by automating the entire lifecycle of network infrastructure and services. AOS provides turnkey, vendor-agnostic, autonomous lifecycle operations of VXLAN, spanning design, implementation, operations and validation — for any virtual, container-based, and bare-metal workloads.

The telecom service provider deployment includes a combined solution as part of a hybrid cloud for OpenStack Deployments and is part of an open IaaS network infrastructure offering.

The solution includes the features and ease of use desired by the service provider, while increasing control, auditability, security, and ease of management. The outcome is lower cost—beyond what is available from public cloud service providers or proprietary on-premise alternatives, said Apstra.

Mansour Karam, CEO and Founder, Apstra
Apstra's AOS provides scalable vendor-independent intent-based automation of the entire life cycle of network services – from day zero, to day one, to day two and beyond – including change operations, as well as advanced intent-based analytics for unmatched reliability, visibility, and troubleshooting ability.

Drew Schulke, VP Dell EMC Networking
With OpenSwitch, Dell EMC Networking expands its Open Networking strategy to Open Source Networking enabling Awnix to combine OPX with Apstra’s AOS to give unparalleled value and flexibility to the customer.
