China Telecom Beijing Research Institute and FRINX are collaborating to develop an open source network control system for China Telecom.
China Telecom is a leader in developing open source-based solutions and FRINX provides parts of source code, libraries and services that will help China Telecom achieve its goal.
FRINX has developed the UniConfig Framework that is being used by China Telecom Beijing Research Institute to configure its networking services. China Telecom Beijing Research Institute is automating L3VPN service provisioning and is using FRINX’s L3VPN service module that implements the IETF data model standard (RFC 8299).
“Open Source has become the de facto standard for developing new networking services and support functions. China Telecom is leading the way by leveraging IETF standards for service models, OpenConfig for device abstraction and OpenDaylight for implementing its controller applications. FRINX is proud to be part of China Telecom’s controller project.” said FRINX Co-founder and CEO Gerhard Wieser.
“China Telecom is developing its network control system based on open source components to manage its network services and to be able to introduce new services faster and more easily into our network. FRINX is the appropriate partner for helping us to master the key components of OpenDaylight for this project. The conscientiousness and dedication of the FRINX colleagues impressed us deeply and we are looking forward to cooperation opportunities in the future.” said Aijun Wang, Manager of the L3VPN PoC project in China Telecom Beijing Research Institute.
