ONF is funded primarily through membership dues. Any operator or supply chain organization that shares the goals of the ONF is invited to join.
Partner members share ONF’s vision and mission and seek to closely align with our strategy and execution. Partners lead and influence the entire ONF ecosystem, leverage our portfolio of open source platforms and solutions, and actively work with ONF and project teams to transform their businesses and the industry at large.
Member organizations often focus on ‘consuming’ a specific ONF project. Membership helps support ONF’s work and engineering team, and in turn ONF is resourced to help educate, support and promote members to help ensure their success.
Transforming Networks with SDN
The SDN movement, led by the ONF, resulted in the disaggregation of networking devices and control software and has facilitated the emergence of a broad range of open source platforms.
Now, in the next phase of the SDN revolution, the ONF is building solutions by providing open source platforms that pull together building blocks from the disaggregated components to transform networks into agile platforms for service delivery.
With a robust community of operators, vendors and system integrators, ONF member companies have the opportunity to plug in their innovations into specific use cases and carry their solutions into operator PoCs, trials and deployment into production networks.
