The ONOS project was formed to pursue our vision of what networking could be for the public good.


Networks have become a very critical infrastructure for the society. However, they are currently closed, proprietary, complex, operationally expensive, inflexible – in a nutshell, they impede innovation and progress rather than enabling them.

We have a vision of what networking could be through the promise of Software Defined Networking (SDN). SDN separates the control plane from the data plane freeing software innovation cycles to become independent of hardware innovation cycles. SDN accelerates Internet and Cloud innovation while significantly reducing the costs of building and operating networks.
