OPX Overview Slides




OPX Induction Request - Introducing the Project to the TAC

  • Joe Ghalam reviewed his OPX (Open Switch) slides
  • OPX name to help elemiminate confusion with Open vSwitch
  • Questions regarding possible trademarking issue due to the proximity of the name Open Switch / Open vSwitch. It is not believed there is an issue.
  • Concerns raised over the use of redis database due to restrictive licensing that would prevent an OPX enabled box from being used in a service offering
  • Rebranding work underway to remove "open-switch" is WIP and is being handled very strategically.
  • Induction documents will be submitted to github this week with review to start next week.
  • (Joe drops from call at this point)
  • Question/concern raised over expected impact to the LFN budget - part of what the Board takes into consideration

TAC Chair
