Argela joined ON.Lab and is actively participating two major projects, Open Network Operating System (ONOS) and Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter (CORD).
ON.Lab is a non-profit organization that aims to develop SDN and NFV-based tools and platforms for networks of different sizes and applications. The two major ON.Lab projects are ONOS – Open Network Operating System and CORD – Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter. Argela is actively participating in both projects. The CORD project has various flavors for different markets. In M-CORD, which is pursuing an SDN and NFV based platform for 5G deployment, Argela has partnered with other ON.Lab participants: AT&T, Verizon, SK Telecom, Cavium, and Radisys. Argela is integrating ProgRAN, its programmable RAN architecture to M-CORD in this partnership. The ProgRAN integrated M-CORD will be ready in June 2016 and an Argela, AT&T, Verizon, SK Telecom, Cavium and Radisys joint demo will be presented at the Mobile World Congress China.
