The Linaro Networking Group marked its first anniversary at the Linaro Connect Asia. Here Bob Monkman, ARM Enterprise Segment Marketing Manager, interviews Pradeep Kathail, Cisco Chief Software Architect, Network Operating System Group, to reflect on the year's accomplishments and current activity within LNG. In addition to delivering Big Endian support in the Linux kernel, LNG launched the OpenDataPlane (ODP) project to enable data plane applications to easily port across different hardware platforms and architectures while retaining the ability to exploit hardware acceleration features unique to each platform. Pradeep discusses the importance of ODP and its relationship to other open source initiatives like OpenDaylight (ODL) as part of the larger industry trends of Software Defined Networks (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV).
