Dear OpenDaylight Team,
We would like to propose a new project for OpenDaylight: Boron Offset 2 titled "Centennial".
Centennial is an ONF MWTG (Microwave Transport Group) initiative which emphasizes the relevance of a Common Information Model (Yang) being developed in ONF by the Wireless Transport Project. The group implemented multiple use cases to prove the feasibility of multi-vendor control of wireless network elements through Open Management Interfaces like the NetConf/Yang. This initiative has strong participation from multiple Microwave OEMs, System Integrators who are developing a series of incremental Proof of Concepts (PoCs) hosted by global operators.
As part of ONF PoC-2 which was hosted by Telefonica, Germany Wipro as an SI, developed few reusable components in OpenDaylight which can be incrementally enhanced for a wider set of Wireless Transport use cases. This PoC-2 covered discovery of Multi-Vendor Microwave Network Elements & Topology, Visualization of the Microwave Network Configuration, and Event Management Modules. We would like to propose this as a project in OpenDaylight for the benefit of wider audience and also the code base becomes readily available with the Boron release of OpenDaylight for ONF PoC-3 which will be hosted by AT&T wherein, a complete Information Model for Multi-Vendor Microwave devices will be developed to avoid vendor lock-in by way of OpenStandards and OpenSource promotion in Operator Networks.
Kindly refer to the project proposal page and let us know if you can accommodate this Project Proposal in the Boron Offset 2 time frame. This initiative will also be backed by global operators starting with Telefonica, AT&T and Douche Telecom. Further, approval and recommendation has been seeked out from the entire community which participated in PoC-2.
