Q: I’m not familiar with ONF. Can you share some background?

A: ONF was founded in 2011 to evangelize SDN and to standardize the OpenFlow protocol. Building a community of 110 member organizations, ONF took SDN from obscurity to the point of disrupting the entire networking market. After standardizing OpenFlow, playing a key role in the emergence of NFV and launching SDN training and certification programs, ONF earned recognition as an SDN “flag bearer” around the world.
