ODTN (Open and Disaggregated Transport Networks) is an ONF Exemplar Platform that leverages the ONOS SDN Controller. ODTN aims to rally service providers, hardware vendors and system integrators, to

  1. Build a reference implementation using (a) open source software, (b) open and common data models, and (c) disaggregated hardware devices.
  2. Perform lab and field trials using the reference implementation.
  3. Identify supply chain gaps and propose solutions.

The platform's scope covers:

1. Disaggregated DWDM systems, including but not limited to transponders and Open Line Systems, amplifiers, multiplexers, all-optical switches and ROADMs
2. Open source network operating system for control and configuration of the DWDM system
3. Open and common data models, APIs and protocols

Much of this information is captured in the platform charter document.

A high level overview of the ODTN platform can be found here.
