Huawei Demonstrates OPEN-O Sun at Operations Transformation Forum

Huawei demonstrated the OPEN-O Sun, the world’s first Open Source SDN and NFV Orchestrator, at the Operations Transformation Forum 2016 in Wuzhen, China. The forum brought together industry leaders from around the world to discuss the transformation of digital operations and share best practices. Helen Chen, leader of the OPEN-O Integration Project noted that the OPEN-O Orchestrator will soon be commercially available.

OPEN-O enables operators’ end-to-end service orchestration over Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) Infrastructure, along with Software Defined Networks (SDN) and legacy networks.
"The OPEN-O Sun is the first open source orchestration platform to facilitate service delivery across NFV, SDN, and legacy networks,” said Chen. “It supports both family and enterprise environments. Involving seven projects, its main code comes from six companies, including China Mobile and Huawei."
The OPEN-O Sun adopts the mainstream TOSCA and YANG models and an open architecture. In addition to OpenStack and other open-source components, it integrates components in the OPEN-O integration lab from multiple vendors, including Canonical, Raisecom, Red Hat, and Huawei.
The OPEN-O community, supported by industry-leading carriers, vendors, and the Linux Foundation, plans to continue developing open-source technologies and ecosystems. OPEN-O allows carriers to integrate products from different vendors, innovate quickly, and operate with agility.
