Nokia is collaborating with Microsoft as part of the SONiC initiative, an open source network operating system based on Linux that has been production-hardened in the data centers of some of the largest cloud-service providers.
Leveraging over 20 years of experience building some of the world’s largest IP networks, Nokia has developed a robust chassis-based SONiC implementation focused on the requirements of high capacity data centers.
Nokia is strongly committed to delivering the most robust network infrastructures possible with a keen focus on resilient and efficient operations at scale.
“The SONiC initiative represents yet another dimension of our collaboration with Microsoft, and is consistent with our commitment to customers building the biggest and most advanced datacenter infrastructures. We are happy to bring our experience to bear in delivering the most robust and capable chassis-based SONiC implementation possible,” said Sri Reddy, president of IP and optical networks at Nokia.
