Aether is the first open source 5G Connected Edge platform for enabling enterprise digital transformation. It provides mobile connectivity and edge cloud services for distributed enterprise networks as a cloud managed offering. Aether is an open source platform optimized for multi-cloud deployments, and simultaneous support for wireless connectivity over licensed, unlicensed and lightly-licensed (CBRS) spectrum.
Aether is the foundational platform for the $30M DARPA Pronto project. Project Pronto is building and deploying a beta-production end-to-end 5G connected edge cloud leveraging a fully programmable network empowered with unprecedented visibility, verification and closed-loop control capabilities to fuel innovation and secure future network infrastructure. Cornell, Princeton and Stanford are funded to pursue the Pronto research on network verification and closed-loop control while ONF is funded to build, enhance, deploy and operate an Aether network in support of this research.
