ONE Summit 2024

Event Summary: DENT at ONE Summit 2024

By Announcements, Blog

The Linux Foundation hosted ONE Summit 2024 in San Jose, CA from April 29–May 1, 2024. ONE Summit is the ONE industry event to focus on best practices, technical challenges and business opportunities facing network decision-makers from Access to Edge to Cloud. Whether deploying a 5G network, building government infrastructure, or using automation and networking to transform your business, this collaborative environment enabled interaction with peers to learn about the open source networking technologies that will transform the industry.

DENT sponsored ONE Summit 2024, allowing the DENT community to interact with the broader open source networking community. DENT hosted a booth staffed by representatives from Amazon, Keysight, PLVision, Sartura, and The Linux Foundation. Attendees learned about DENT’s mission, community presence, components, benefits, role as an embedded operating system, deployed DENT platforms, DentOS v3 Cynthia, DentOS v4 and beyond

Further, the DENT Community presented two sessions at the event. Taskin Ucpinar, Senior Technical Program Manager at Amazon, discussed DENT’s Features Roadmap for Disaggregated Enterprise Networks. Ucpinar explained how the DENT community envisions unifying the community of Silicon Vendors, ODMs, SI, and OEMs to provide and enhance Distributed Enterprise Edge functionality, enable wider adaptation of disaggregated enterprise networks, and cover expanded use cases.

Then, Taras Choryni, PLVision’s Director of Open Networking Solutions and Strategy, spoke about the SAI Virtual Switch in DentOS. In his presentation, Chornyi explained the experience of using the SONiC SAI Virtual Switch in DentOS. Throughout the development and testing phases of NOS, DENT leverages virtualization to simulate a streamlined yet authentic data center switch environment. This approach allows comprehensive testing of the control plane applications without the need for physical hardware. By enabling the virtual switch, users gain the power to emulate multiple switches in complex networking setups in virtual environments. This offers businesses the flexibility to streamline their development and testing even before a fully deployed physical device is available. 

Videos of both sessions will be available soon.
