Introduction to Open Networking

In the world of network technology, open networking is crucial. It separates hardware and software, allowing open-source options. This flexibility lets organizations tailor network operations to their needs.

Embracing Open Network Operating Systems

At the heart of open networking are open Network Operating Systems (NOS), which lay the software groundwork for controlling network devices such as switches and routers in an open network framework.

These systems work on various network devices. They support a wide range of network equipment, promoting versatility. Open NOS adoption improves network architecture flexibility. It enhances scalability and reduces ownership costs.

Simplifying Complexities Through Orchestration

Orchestration in open networking automates system coordination and management. It condenses complex tasks, helping IT teams oversee dynamic environments.

Orchestration tools offer a centralized, high-level platform for the management of various network components, streamlining operations and ensuring consistency and dependability across the network infrastructure.

Verity for Edge: Elevating Network Automation

Verity for Edge simplifies network orchestration, managing multi-vendor complex network efficiently. It offers automation and simplicity for both new and existing setups.

The main advantages of BE Networks™ software include:

  • Hyper-Automation: Accelerates the addition of new devices and applications with high accuracy.

Scalability is handling many nodes at once, supporting many servers/GPUs. It’s convenient to manage everything with a single point of management. This reduces vulnerability and maintains consistent policies. Additionally, it offers flexibility by supporting mixed vendor environments. It can integrate in both data centers and at the network edge.

  • Live, Zoomable and Navigable Network Map

Precise graphical visibility of how the network is configured and what is connected to it is a game-changer.  Verity provides the operator with a live view of the current state of the network. Network operators can zoom in or out of the topology with a few clicks. They can view tenants, locations, and individual switch ports.
