CREATE-NET together with ON.Lab and Universidad del Pais Vasco organized an ONOS HandsOn/Hackathon event which took place in Bilbao, Spain on 28-29 September 2015.
The event was organized in the framework of the European Workshop on Software Defined Networks.
During the first day, CREATE-NET’s research engineer Matteo Gerola and Ali Al-Shabibi from ON.Lab presented ONOS, a carrier-grade SDN network operating system, by introducing the technology behind it. Challenges ranging from application design to ONOS hacking or modification were also illustrated.
The following day, 25 developers, coming from companies and universities from all over Europe, tested themselves with an Hackathon during which they designed and implemented new features for the ONOS framework.
The winning group focused on the extension of the current tunnelling mechanisms offering users a new interesting solution.
