OpenDaylight sets product quality label, metrics for SDN solutions (Sean Buckley, FierceTelecom)

The OpenDaylight Project has introduced its “Powered by ODL” program, signaling compliance with technical standards for commercial SDN products or services based on its platform.

The program can help end-users identify quality OpenDaylight-based products, while supporting vendors with their go-to-market strategies.

Any vendor or service provider that offers an OpenDaylight-based product or service can apply to use the trademark. In order to gain the “Powered by OpenDaylight” designation, the company’s product has to include specific core components from a recent release of the OpenDaylight code base, as approved by the OpenDaylight board.

Initial OpenDaylight-based products expected to receive the “Powered by OpenDaylight” mark are offerings from Brocade, Ericsson, HPE, Inocybe and Serro.

“The program will make it easier for end users to identify OpenDaylight-based solutions that meet their needs and also support our members’ contributing to and building products and solutions leveraging the OpenDaylight platform,” said Neela Jacques, executive director of OpenDaylight.

OpenDaylight’s product quality label comes at a time when service providers are ramping up their SDN deployment schedules.

Initial deployments by AT&T, CenturyLink and other large Tier 1 telco deployments indicate that a growing majority of service providers are moving from proof-of-concept evaluations to commercial SDN deployments in 2016 and 2017.
