2 - Accton product submission to Open Compute Networking group - Jeff Catlin

3 - Updates on Open Network Linux Project - Rob Sherwood

Open Network Linux (http://openetlinux.org) is an ONIE compatible Linux distribution/network operating system for OCP and networking hardware.  Since it's launch at OCP in January, it's had a number of developments including support for additional switches, a platform API, and increased community participation.  I will provide updates on the project's progress and future directions, along with a brief tutorial on how to use and install ONL.


4 - Open Network Install Environment - Project Status - Curt Brune, Cumulus

The Open Network Install Environment (ONIE) is an open source initiative that defines an open install environment for bare metal network switches.  ONIE enables a bare metal switch ecosystem where end users have a choice among different network operating systems.

If you are deploying bare metal network switches learn how ONIE can help you manage your network OS deployments and switch inventory.

This will be a working session where we discuss the current status of the ONIE project and work on the following:

  • ONIE Specification for x86 systems
  • ONIE testing and certification
  • ONIE project communications
