The Disaggregated Network Operating System (DANOS) project enables community collaboration across network hardware, forwarding, and operating system layers. DANOS is initially based on AT&T’s “dNOS” software framework of a more open, cost-effective and flexible alternative to traditional networking equipment. As part of The Linux Foundation, it now incorporates contributions from complementary open-source communities in building a standardized distributed Network Operating System (NOS) to accelerate the adoption and use of white boxes in a service provider’s infrastructure.

Happiest Minds Technologies Limited is a contributing member of the Linux DANOS project community and our specific areas interest include Quality Engineering covering Network design, Testing and Test Automation. Our technical contribution is aligned towards deliverables related Configuration guides, Test plans and Test Automation Framework. 

We are delighted to share that we have delivered the base Test Automation software on which all further testing can be built upon by the wider community.  Apart from having submitted the test plans for IPSec VPN and following that up with several other feature plans, we continuously collaborate with project members and take in enhancement requests from owners of programs.

Happiest Minds has a dedicated Networking & Embedded Testing function focusing on designing and developing innovative testing solutions and accelerators for validating virtualized networks covering Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV).  The technical contributions towards the LF-DANOS has resulted in our singular focus towards sharing our best practices, test software accelerators and overall experience with the community members that will help them quickly deploy DANOS software in the network roadmap for their companies.
