OTCC Project Charter (Aug. 22, 2017)
Project Name: Open Transport Configuration & Control
|Promote common configuration and control interfaces for transport networks in SDN, defining these interfaces with open source software and software defined standards.|
This project will develop open source software and accompanying software-based standards for control of L0-L2+ transport technologies, including optical and microwave. This project will also develop open source software and accompanying software-based standards simplifying control of service provider multi-domain multi-technology transport networks.
Targeted efforts between the OTS Project and CORD Project are proposed to develop software and specifications in the following areas:
Information and Data Models (github):
Source code (github):
Other documentation (wiki or other site tbd):
All materials to be made available under Apache 2.0 licensing terms.
Technical leadership will initially be provided by a team of people currently in leadership or critical technical roles, or providing carrier input:
|The OTS Community will make use of mailing lists derived from current list (email@example.com) as well as topic-specific lists (firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com). Github sites derived from current Snowmass and Centennial sites will be used for models, source code and other artifacts. Document repository will continue to be needed for archiving of meeting notes, proposals, and other working documents. There will be regular biweekly and weekly webexes as well as interim face-to-face meetings as needed to progress work on specific topics.|
