Open Hack Challenge

Re-imagine the Network using Open Platforms

An event for creatively building network applications using open platforms to motivate the developer community in India. Below are the six themes identified for the Open Hack Challenge.

SDN Programmable NetworkLeverage open source platform, SDN Controller such as ONOS, ODL for implementing programmable networks. Feature addition or enhancement using existing ONOS application
Open Silicon native SDN NFV TransformationSolution based on advancements in hardware and embedded system domain for efficient utilization of silicon layer and architectural advancement for effective utilization of HAL in White Box, Grey Box & Brite-Boxes by silicon vendors
5G5G strategies to leverage 5G virtualization at the core using network slicing to support multiple networks over one physical infrastructure, 5G Virtualization at edge namely, the virtual partitioning of mobile radio access network (RAN) for services underlying use cases such as IOT, streaming video, remote health care etc.
Cloud, Data Center, Edge ComputingInnovation in SDDC, edge computing & leveraging cloud based economy such as cloud connects distributed security in cloud environment, edge computing for zero latency use cases
Smart N/W, Operational ExcellenceAI & Smart networks, extending benefits of AI & ML for faster RCA’s , use of big data for improving customer experience & reducing cost of operation & maintenance

  • Participants can use any reference architecture or exemplar platform from ONF or equivalent open platforms and build a use-case. For example: “Application aware dynamic routing using ONOS segment routing engine”. Each team can have a maximum of 4 participants.
  • Participants to provide a brief (600 words) of the idea by 28th June, 2019. Shortlisted teams shall be notified to proceed with the demo implementation.
  • Teams will be provided access to ONF Community resources and slack-channels established for Open Hack Challenge with access to SMEs from ONF and Infosys.
  • Teams will have to present their solutions on 22nd July, 2019, at Infosys Campus, Bengaluru. Teams are expected to carry their own hardware and software for the competition. Open Internet access will be provided at the venue. Participants can setup their demos during the first half of the day.
  • On Day 1, 22nd July, 2019, we will have the evaluations based on live demo and presentation during the second half of the day. Each team should also prepare a business / technical pitch presentation (not exceeding 3 slides) to showcase their solution approach and final outcome.
  • The winners will be announced during the Executive Conference on Day 2, 23rd July, 2019.
