The use cases for ONOS include multi-layer optimization and traffic engineering over packet optical core; seamless peering of SDN islands with the Internet; SDN-based WAN control with segment routing; bandwidth calendaring; bandwidth and network provisioning; and a variety of configuration, management and control applications.
Another is Network Functions as a Service (NFaaS), which ON.Labs describes as a scalable, easy to deploy and manage NFV where the smallest unit of provisioning is a "service." These services can be easily managed and scaled up or down, and combined together to create new services, ON.Lab says.
Examples of NFaaS include caching, deep packet inspection, load balancing and security applications.
ONOS will be available through the GitHub open source repository.
