Introducing OpenDaylight’s Sixth Platform Release, Carbon

By June 6, 2017Blog

Carbon has been released! OpenDaylight’s sixth platform release, Carbon, adds new enhancements to better support Metro Ethernet and cable operators as well as Internet of Things (IoT) deployments. As OpenDaylight continues to mature, a growing number of member use cases are emerging from companies including CenturyLink, China Mobile, Inocybe Technologies and Tencent.

OpenDaylight’s latest release further advances the platform’s scalability and robustness, with new capabilities supporting multi-site deployments for geographic reach, application performance and fault tolerance. Southbound protocols OpenFlow and Netconf gained in scalability and features, as did various administrative utilities.

Carbon also streamlines service function chaining by providing an integrated framework for NFV management. Much of this integration work and new capabilities available in Carbon were showcased as part of a proposed “Nirvana Stack,” presented in Boston last month.

As these toolchains are further integrated into higher level open source projects like ONAP, OpenStack and OPNFV, they are increasingly enabling innovators to productively explore new use cases such as IoT.
