Open Source Networking in 2020, Dent Gets First Release, OPNFV Gets its Last Release

The Linux Foundation has been making steady inroads in the networking market in recent years and 2020 was certainly no exception.

Recently, the Linux Foundation hosted open source networking efforts for DENT, a project to enable disaggregated enterprise network operating systems for edge computing that launched in 2019 and had its first major release on December 17, 2020. The first release of DENT is codenamed “Arthur”, a nod to the fictional Arthur Dent who is the protagonist in the classic Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy science fiction series.
