Open Networking has created new opportunities and new challenges for Data Center designers and implementers. Many customers are used to using monolithic solutions from a single integrator. When using Open Networking solutions from multiple providers, a few key questions arise: will it all work? Are there common interfaces I can use to monitoring and control the hardware? How do Data Center designers and implementers ensure that the components they’ve chosen will be interoperable?

This presentation will cover two key projects related to Interoperability, underway in the Networking group:

1. Interoperability Testing: the content will cover
a) a brief history of the project at the University of New Hampshire InterOperability Lab to test and validate combinations of OCP-certified switches, network operating systems and interface modules,
b) outline the test procedures for ensuring basic interoperability of Open Networking components, including proper physical layer operation for cables, pluggable modules, and switches, as well as baseline packet loss expectations, and
c) plans for further expansion of the testing in 2016.

2. Open Optical Monitoring: the content will cover
a) a brief description of the need for a common set of APIs to access information and control pluggable modules deployed in Open Networking solutions,
b) a review of the project to date,
c) a demonstration of available code enabling ‘Open Optical Monitoring’ and d) plans for the project in 2016.
