The Network Device Education Foundation (NetDEF) with it’s OpenSourceRouting Project starts together with 128 Technology, 6WIND, ATCorp, Big Switch Networks, Cumulus Networks, ISC, LabN, Orange and Volta Networks the new FRRouting project under the umbrella of the Linux Foundation.
It’s an exiting moment in our history and in the history of the industry to get a new fork of Quagga started and evolve it into the best open source routing stack. FRRouting (FRR) is an IP routing protocol suite for Unix platforms which includes protocol daemons for BGP, IS-IS, LDP, OSPF, PIM, and RIP
MARTIN WINTER: Welcome everyone. I want to talk a little bit about some ideas we have on how we test like a routing protocol, and the challenge we faced there and I’m using Quagga as an example because that’s what I’m working on but a lot of these things may apply to any other especially Open Source committee with routing stack, so it could be used for any other of the routing stacks too, some of the things may even be hints if you test commercial routers, some ideas what you can do.
Martin Winter presented a paper at the Linux Network Developers Conference in Sevilla, Spain on Feb 10, 2016.

Network Device Education Foundation, Inc. (NetDEF), is pleased to announce that its founder, Steven Noble, will be presenting an in-depth user tutorial on Open Networking at the OpenDaylight Summit on Monday, July 27, 2015 during the 1:30 p.m. time period.
The tutorial has been designed to cater to members of the networking community who are looking to integrate SDN concepts into their existing network infrastructure utilizing the OpenDaylight SDN Controller and OpenFlow capable switches. The tutorial will consist of multiple network devices configured to emulate a standard LAN running classic routing protocols that will be migrated to a simple Software Defined Network utilizing the OpenDaylight SDN controller, Quagga and OpenFlow.
Mr. Noble is recognized for his expertise in the area of networking going back nearly two decades, having worked for companies such as Cisco Systems, Exodus Communications and, most recently, as the Chief Technology Officer at Sideband Networks.
“OpenDaylight is pleased to welcome NetDEF to the OpenDaylight Summit in Santa Clara,” said Neela Jacques, executive director, OpenDaylight. “It’s been great to see them do some of the first third party scalability testing of OpenDaylight, and and we’re delighted they will be sharing their expertise via a tutorial on how to integrate OpenDaylight into existing networks.”
About the OpenDaylight Summit:
OpenDaylight Summit is where the industry meets to collaborate on networking’s de facto open SDN platform. It brings together users, developers and the SDN community to discuss, debate and demonstrate the latest technologies and trends in open SDN.
About the Network Device Education Foundation:
The Network Device Education Foundation, Inc, is a federally recognized 501c3 corporation providing needed assistance to the networking community through training, testing and via the support of open source software.
