Cisco Commercializes OpenDaylight SDN with XNC

Another component of Cisco’s virtualization and SDN efforts is from the OpenDaylight project, which leverages the Cisco ONE SDN controller. OpenDaylight is a multi-stakeholder effort building an open-source SDN platform.

Kiran said that Cisco has a productized version that is called XNC that is now gearing up for its version 1.5 release.

“XNC is a commercial derivative of the OpenDaylight initiative,” Kiran said. “Cisco has spent cycles on making it robust and production ready and will obviously also keep in sync with OpenDaylight releases.”
