DANOS-Vyatta edition NOS is aligned with Open Compute Project in delivering a cell site gateway router (CSGR) use case. As mobile service providers make the transition from legacy technologies toward 5G RAN technologies, the CSGR is designed to address the changing needs of operator’s backhaul transport requirements.
Based on the DANOS open source software, DANOS-Vyatta edition is a production-ready, carrier grade, feature-rich network operating system (NOS) that meets the demand for functionality and reliability required in the carrier environment.
Highlights of DANOS-Vyatta edition The NOS architecture is designed for abstractions with clean APIs between the layers for development agility, troubleshooting and ease of supporting multiple white boxes. The application layer encompasses all the routing and supporting processes along with the standard APIs and familiar CLI interface for operators and management, automation, orchestration systems to interact with the NOS. The application layer interfaces with the system infrastructure layer, again via modular interfaces. DANOS-Vyatta edition uses standard Linux at its core and this is part of the infrastructure layer as well. Use of Linux comes with all the well-known scripting, tooling capabilities. The forwarding layer’s main role is to interface with the infrastructure layer above for data necessary for forwarding and other functions in a modular way as well as support abstractions necessary to enable easy of ODM integration. The Forwarding Abstraction Layer is the key module that enables rapid qualification of ODMs.
AT&T wants to build a carrier community around a standardized, open source, telco-grade WAN Network Operating System to:
DANOS-Vyatta edition eases operators’ major pain points by addressing Telco WAN network features and operational models. Network operators are keen on leveraging DVe’s values and advantages. DANOS-Vyatta edition:
DANOS-Vyatta edition NOS platform is based on the Linux Foundation DANOS open source Network Operating System, the only open source, carrier-focused NOS platform. AT&T has broadly deployed DANOS-Vyatta edition in thousands of devices for both fixed and mobile networks. The following use cases are highly sought by network operators.
