THE ONAP PROJECT
Contributing to the industry-wide open source initiative
As a result of the strong alignment between Blue Planet’s approach and ONAP’s goals, Ciena has joined the Linux Foundation and the ONAP project as a natural extension of our open source strategy. Ciena will incorporate and contribute to relevant functional modules to further our vision of open networking as well as enhance our Blue Planet offering. Network operators and vendors will be able to work together to further accelerate the adoption and standardization of technologies like SDN and NFV that enable network agility, automation and programmability.
