Case Study

NTT Software Innovation Center (SIC) is undertaking promotion of open innovation centering on the development of open source platforms, collaborative service development with NTT operating companies and other R&D. As the technology thought leader, NTT SIC required a flexible network that allowed rapid innovation and was simple to operate while controlling their TCO. The team at NTT SIC was experiencing growing layer 2 complexities like network loop, rogue DHCP servers, misconfiguration of IP addresses, and wanted to adopt a network architecture that addressed these challenges. The ability to build and rapidly deploy custom applications was of paramount importance. After conducting thorough research and an internal evaluation, the team decided on Open Networking with Cumulus Linux. The main criteria for selecting Cumulus Linux included network flexibility and network simplification. To learn more about how Cumulus helped NTT SIC to achieve their network goals, read our case study.
