The CORD thought leaders and developers introduce CORD, explain the motivation from a service provider perspective, present CORD architecture, related services and key use cases including vOLT, vSG and vRouter.
CORD aims to bring the data center economy and cloud agility to the service provider networks and is an end-to-end solution for the next generation central offices. CORD leverages three related technologies: SDN, NFV, and Cloud and builds on merchant silicon, white boxes and open-source platforms such as ONOS, OpenStack, and XOS. ON.Lab, AT&T and partners demonstrated CORD POC at ONS2015 and are now building a CORD POD for a market trial.
