Open networking firm Stordis has joined the Telecom Infra Project (TIP) to help in developing open source hardware and software for future networks. TIP was founded in 2016 by telecom companies to create an open source platform for next-generation networks.
Alexander Jeffries, CEO at Stordis said, “Being a member of the TIP is important for us because it enables us to contribute to the transition of the IT industry. The concept of Open Source becomes more and more relevant across all fields of the network industry, including telecommunication, academia and research, broadcasting, and cyber security. Connecting with interested parties who actively contribute to this progress is essential for advancement and innovation. With this in mind, we have designed the STORDIS Advanced Programmable Switches (APS), which are the only P4 programmable switches that support 1588v2.”
500 participating member organisations
Stordis makes network equipment including bare metal switches and adapter cards. It has also built programmable switches based on the Tofino ASIC processor from Barefoot.
TIP features project groups, startups, initiatives and provides physical space for research and development. It has more than 500 participating member organisations, including operators, suppliers, developers and integrators. Recently, it announced a collaboration with the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) to accelerate the rollout of open networks.
Attilio Zani, executive director, Telecom Infra Project said, “We are very pleased to welcome Stordis to our community, which is expanding the scope and value of disaggregation to the industry. We look forward to a promising collaboration on device programmability to make telecom networks far more open and efficient.”
