Lithium is the third release of OpenDaylight, the open source platform for building programmable, software-defined networks. With Lithium, service providers and enterprises can transition to SDN with particular focus on broadening the programmability of intelligent networks. They can compose their own service architectures or leverage an OpenDaylight-based commercial offering to deliver dynamic network services in a cloud environment, craft dynamic intent-based policies and begin virtualizing functions with Service Function Chaining (SFC). Lithium is expected to be embedded in over 20 commercial products and solutions, as well as the Open Platform for NFV (OPNFV).
OpenDaylight is a highly available, modular, extensible, scalable and multi-protocol controller infrastructure built for SDN deployments on modern heterogeneous multi-vendor networks. OpenDaylight provides a model-driven service abstraction platform that allows users to write apps that easily work across a wide variety of hardware and south-bound protocols.
466 individuals contributed to the Lithium release making OpenDaylight one of the fastest-growing open source projects. Learn how organizations are using OpenDaylight and options for commercial support at the upcoming Summit.
