Advances in general purpose hardware continue to enable the white-box movement in the Networking Industry. Network Operating Systems provide the required foundational software to turn these white-boxes into highly functional and efficient network switches. This presentation will provide an introduction and overview of three of the most popular NOSes available today; DANOS, SONIC, and Stratum. In addition, this panel of experts will discuss how the NOS landscape is evolving with collaboration and harmonization efforts occurring between and across several NOS projects. This session will share key learnings from ONAP PoCs using CLAMP project closed loop orchestration use-cases with real-time analytics and AI/ML predictive inputs to drive policy decisions. We will address telecom service providers use-cases for AI and machine learning and desired state of ONAP policy engine to optimize cloud/network resource management, enhance security and drive better customer experience for supporting future services landscape.
