Verizon becomes the fifth service provider to be part of the ONOS project, the open source SDN Network Operating System (ONOS), joining the likes of AT&T, China Unicom, NTT Communications, SK Telecom and vendor partners to accelerate the adoption of open source SDN and NFV solutions.

Verizon is expected to bring value to the ONOS partnership in terms of new requirements, possible use cases and insights that will shape ONOS, including solutions such as CORD, M-CORD and packet-optical convergence. The largest operator in the US will also be working on the 5G development with ONOS and its members.

Brian Higgins, Vice President of Network Planning at Verizon
Verizon recognizes the potential of ONOS as an open source SDN platform and the service provider solutions it enables, as well as the promise it holds to transform the networking industry. 

Alex Jinsung Choi, CTO and Executive Vice President at SK Telecom
We look forward to collaborating with Verizon and other partners to accelerate adoption of 5G with open source SDN and NFV solutions using ONOS.
