SEATTLE -- The OpenDaylight Project, the leading open source platform for programmable, software-defined networks, today announced the launch of its “Powered by ODL” program, which signals compliance with exceptional technical standards and quality for commercial products or services based on the platform.
The OpenDaylight ecosystem continues to grow and mature, with increasing numbers of solution providers incorporating OpenDaylight code into downstream commercial offerings. End users are increasingly turning to open source and OpenDaylight for speed of innovation, flexibility and improved interoperability. The “Powered by OpenDaylight” program was created to help end users identify quality OpenDaylight-based solutions, while supporting vendors with their go-to-market strategies.
Any individual or organization offering an OpenDaylight-based product or service may apply for the trademark. Products that are “Powered by OpenDaylight” must include specific core components from a recent release of the OpenDaylight code base, as approved by the OpenDaylight Board of Directors. These products qualify for the official “Powered by OpenDaylight” logo and unique product naming rights.
Initial OpenDaylight-based products expected to receive the “Powered by OpenDaylight” trademark include: Brocade, Ericsson, HPE, Inocybe and Serro.
“I am thrilled to announce the launch of our ‘Powered by OpenDaylight’ program,” said Neela Jacques, executive director of OpenDaylight. “This marks a turning point representing OpenDaylight’s emergence as an industry-wide de facto standard. 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.”
