Recently the Open Networking Foundation (ONF) announced that ONF's Aether™ 5G Connected Edge Cloud platform is being used as the software platform for the $30M DARPA Pronto project, pursuing research to secure future 5G network infrastructure.
DARPA is funding ONF to build, deploy and operate the network to support research by Cornell, Princeton and Stanford universities in the areas of network verification and closed-loop control. ONF will enhance and deploy its open source Aether software platform as the foundation for the Pronto research work, and in turn the research results will be open sourced back into Aether to help advance Aether as a platform for future secure 5G network infrastructure.
In unison with this announcement, today we also launched a new Aether website. This new site is designed to provide enterprises with insights on how they can leverage Aether to enable Industry 4.0 and AI/ML-based automation projects. Learn more about the benefits of Aether and don’t miss a new white paper by ONF’s Aseem Parikh titled, “Enabling a New Era of Smart Enterprises.” Last but certainly not least, don’t miss the upcoming 5G Connected Edge Cloud for Industry 4.0 Transformation virtual event (December 8 - 10, 2020). This event is focused on the exciting intersection of edge cloud, 5G and programmable networks as the foundation for building new and powerful solutions for enterprise Industry 4.0 and AI/ML-based process automation. We have an exciting lineup of live keynotes, several of which will be talking about Aether and Pronto. Register now - it’s free! In addition to the three days of live keynotes you will have access to15+ on-demand sessions by industry experts.
