FRINX and SoftBank are collaborating and have created an open-source based operations system for SoftBank's networks.
Founded in 2016 in Bratislava, FRINX offers network automation solutions for branch offices, core and access networks. FRINX is providing support for its distribution of OpenDaylight, enabling SoftBank to focus on creating their applications.
FRINX offers a fully supported version of OpenDaylight (FRINX ODL Distribution) that makes it a reliable infrastructure onto which SoftBank creates applications to manage their networks. Meanwhile, FRINX provides support, quality assurance and performance enhancements to the code base and manages the up-streaming process. SoftBank also uses the FRINX Smart Build Engine - a development and test environment - that allows customers to automate the build process and system tests for OpenDaylight and its applications in minutes, compared to weeks or months with Do-It-Yourself solutions.
