PALO ALTO, Calif. -- The Open Networking Foundation (ONF), a non-profit organization dedicated to accelerating the adoption of open Software-Defined Networking (SDN), today announced that the ONF OpenFlow Conformance Testing Program has welcomed six testing labs and established the ONF Testing Leadership Council (TLC) since its inception one year ago. In addition to its four previously announced testing labs, the China Telecommunication Technology Labs (CTTL), hosted by the China Academy of Telecommunication Research (CATR) of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) in Beijing, and the Network Benchmarking Lab (NBL), co-hosted by the National Chiao Tung University (NCTU) in Taiwan, are now ONF-accredited labs for testing conformance to the OpenFlow specification.

“The traction received in the first year of the program validates ONF’s responsibility to cultivate an open ecosystem of independent labs around the world that could perform conformance, benchmarking, and interoperability testing,” said Rick Bauer, technical program manager of the Open Networking Foundation. “Vendors with certified products solidify their commitment to the OpenFlow specification; benefit from condensed development cycles, expedited product deployment, and increased opportunities for testing protocols; and ensure their solutions are interoperable once they reach the end user. The program is a real service to network operators in building their confidence in the products they buy.”

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
