As software-defined networking ( #SDN), network functions virtualization ( #NFV) and other new-age networking initiatives mature, we’ll be taking a look at what’s in store for some of the most promising projects in the new year, now examining the open source movement. Modern networking techniques such as SDN and NFV are closely tied to the open source phenomenon. As they’ve originated, evolved and matured, such approaches naturally have gravitated to open source, which itself is in the midst of a rising popularity trend. As a Gigaom Research article noted last year, “As has always been the case with successful networking technologies, industry standards and open systems will play a strong role in the timely widespread adoption and ultimate success of both SDN and NFV solutions. Open source is poised to play an even more critical role in delivering on the promise of standardized and open networking.”
