Faster Integration of OpenSync through Linux SDN support

PALO ALTO, Calif., Jan. 30, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Announcing the integration of Linux SDN at the OpenSync Summit in March 2023 marked a significant stride for OpenSync, extending its reach to cover all smart home devices. Now, with the live release of OpenSync 5.6 in December 2023, the OpenSync framework seamlessly integrates support for Linux SDN.

Liem Vo, Chief OpenSync Officer

OpenSync has extended support for the widely adopted Linux networking bridge, eliminating the need for additional development effort previously required to convert from the Linux bridge to OpenvSwitch (OVS). As a result of this expansion, OpenSync extends its reach to 100% of smart home devices, maintaining its position as the only software defined networking framework for consumer premise equipment.

The support of Linux SDN, from OpenSync 5.6, enhances the ease of adoption for OpenSync. It has already been embraced by ZTE and Evolution Digital, TP-Link, Wistron NeWeb Corporation (WNC), Heights Telecom will be adopting OpenSync with Linux SDN.

“OpenSync now supporting Linux SDN represents a fundamental shift, going beyond mere complexity reduction to reshaping possibilities. OpenSync integration has become easier and faster. Compatibility soars seamlessly with the Linux native bridge, enabling faster time to market. This is a transformative journey where OpenSync is poised to be available wherever connectivity thrives, quickly, scalably, and reliably.”
