Vibrant Networking, Edge Open Source Development On Full Display at Open Networking & Edge Summit
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 23, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization enabling mass innovation through open source, today marked significant progress in the open networking and edge spaces. In advance of the Open Networking and Edge Summit happening September 28-30, Linux Foundation umbrella projects LF Edge and LF Networking demonstrate recent achievements highlighting trends that set the stage for next-generation technology.
"We are thrilled to announce a number of milestones across our networking and edge projects, which will be on virtual display at ONES next week," said Arpit Joshipura, general manager, Networking, Edge and IOT, at the Linux Foundation. "Indicative of what's coming next, our communities are laying the groundwork for markets like cloud native, 5G, and edge to explode in terms of open deployments."
Recent Acceleration within Networking & Edge includes:
"We are together in a tough period. Thanks to all developers and contributors of LFN and LF- Edge to tirelessly propel various projects to be on the trac," said Dr. Junlan Feng, chief scientist at China Mobile, general manager of AI and Intelligent Operation R&D Center, and LFN Board chair. "Cloud Native and 5G are also top priorities of China Mobile to strengthen the experience of our customers. For moving forward, we see there is a great opportunity to fuse together network automation and network intelligence through ONAP, Acumos, Edge, etc. EUAG under LFN is conducting a study to collect and analyze the common requirements of 5G and intelligent network in our industry. We as a community will continuously work together. Thanks to Linux Foundation for taking the lead."
At the edge, unification has happened and projects (e.g., Akraino, EdgeX Foundry, and Fledge) have delivered deployable code. And the new LF Edge Vertical Solutions Group is working to enable easily-customized deployments based on market/vertical requirements. Opportunities exist for end users across verticals - e.g., enterprise, automotive, industrial - to participate in shaping the direction of how open source gets deployed at the edge. Join the launch event, "Launching the LF Edge End User Community" on October 1, co-located with ONES.
"Open source collaboration from edge to network is critical to achieve compatibility and complementarity. ONES is THE event for communities to come together – learning about the latest trends in projects and determining how to evolve technology across boundaries and borders, " said Melissa Evers-Hood, governing board chair for LF Edge and vice president, Intel Architecture, Graphics and Software, Software Business Strategy.
