Open Source Software

Within an ecosystem of technology partners and open-source communities, Edgecore Networks delivers networking solutions based on open hardware and software platforms that increase choice, freedom, greater control, encourage and quicken innovation, lower TCO, and stimulate new business models.

  • Edgecore is a ONL-certified Gold partner, as all open network switches from Edgecore support the Open Network Linux, the OCP standard Linux distribution for disaggregated networking. ONL provides a Linux distribution and supports forwarding and management agents to enable commercial and open source open network solutions.


  • SONiC (Software for Open Networking in the Cloud) is an open source project for network routers and switches.

  • Stratum is an open source, silicon-independent switch operating system for software-defined networks Backed by a broad spectrum of organizations from across the networking industry, Stratum is building an open, minimal, production-ready distribution for white box switches. Edgecore Networks is one of the founding members.

  • Open Networking Foundation (ONF) is a user-driven organization dedicated to the promotion and adoption ofSoftware-Defined Networking (SDN) through open standards development. SDN is a new approach to networking in which network control is decoupled from the data forwarding function and is directly programmable. The result is an extremely dynamic, manageable, cost-effective, and adaptable architecture that gives administrators unprecedented programmability, automation, and control. Implementing SDN via an open standard enables extraordinary agility while reducing service development and operational costs, and frees network administrators to integrate best-of-breed technology as it is developed.


  • Project Atrium is an open source SDN distribution - a vertically integrated set of open source components which together form a complete SDN stack. It’s goals are threefold: 1) Close the large integration-gap of the element 2) Overcome a massive gap in interoperability 3) Work closely with network operators on deployable use-cases.

  • OpenSwitch is Community-Based, Open Source, Full-Featured Network Operating System.

  • The Open Compute Project (OCP) is a collaborative community focused on redesigning hardware technology to efficiently support the growing demands on compute infrastructure.
