Media Advisory: Cumulus Networks to Demonstrate Interoperability Capabilities at OCP Summit 2016

Cumulus Networks the first and only Open Networking provider on the InterOperability Lab Integrators list

Mountain View, Calif., March 7, 2016 - Cumulus Networks®, a leading provider of enterprise Open Networking solutions, will be demonstrating the interoperability capabilities of its Cumulus® Linux® OS for open networking at this week’s Open Compute Project Summit, taking place March 9-10 at the San Jose Convention Center.

Cumulus Networks engineers will be conducting demonstrations to showcase the versatility of the Cumulus Linux Network Operating System, which will run on a number of different switches and configurations throughout the show. Shrijeet Mukherjee, VP of Engineering at Cumulus Networks, will also be giving a talk entitled “Linux Networking is Awesome” on March 10, 1:00pm-1:30pm. As part of the talk, Mukherjee will demonstrate Cumulus Linux running on Broadcom and Mellanox switches interoperating in the same environment.

Cumulus Linux enables switches to be automated, monitored and managed as generic infrastructure, which reduces costs and speeds deployment of OpenStack environments.

Cumulus Networks takes an active role in advancing and supporting the Open Compute community through development and testing, and was recently included as the first, and so far only, Network Operating System on the InterOperability Laboratory’s Open Network Integrators list. This came after Cumulus Networks participated in interoperability and conformance tests performed at the laboratory’s most recent Open Networking Plugfest, held September 21-25, 2015 at the University of New Hampshire’s InterOperability Laboratory (UNH-IOL).
