China's leading Over-the-Top(OTT) provider, Tencent has joined the OpenDaylight Project, a collaborative open source project that aims to accelerate the adoption of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).

Tencent participates in the OpenDaylight project to nurture the growth of its feature-rich, high-performance SDN service that provides better Internet service to its users, while also sharing valuable insights and contributions with the broader community.

Tencent said that it has built a robust SDN infrastructure to use network resources efficiently and effectively and to improve Data Center Interconnection, Internet Connection and Data Center networking.  

Tom Bie, VP of Technology and Engineering Group at Tencent
Tencent's network infrastructure is expanding to accommodate a growing user base and the massive scale required to provide those users with high quality services. Traditional ways of designing and operating a network of this scale cannot satisfy businesses and operational requirements, so innovative new solutions are needed. 

Neela Jacques, executive director, OpenDaylight
With millions of users, Tencent has a considerable need to maximize networking efficiency and capacity. To that end, they have developed an extremely innovative approach to SDN, which is built and deployed on OpenDaylight.
