Linux Foundation’s DENT To Create Network OS For Disaggregated Network Switches


With an aim to simplify enterprise edge networking software, Linux Foundation has launched a new open source project called DENT. The project will help in the creation of Network OS for Disaggregated Network Switches in campus and remote enterprise locations. Linux Foundation expects DENT to unify silicon vendors, ODMs, SIs, OEMs, and end users across all verticals and enable the transition to disaggregated networks.

The initial use case will focus on the retail industry with premier members including Amazon, Cumulus Networks, Delta Electronics Inc, Marvell, Mellanox, Wistron NeWeb (WNC).
