Ali Al-Shabibi

Software Architect, ON.Lab



ONOS (Open Network Operating System) is an open-source platform for developing network control applications and solutions designed to meet the demands of service provider networks. This talk will provide the audience with an overview of ONOS architecture, its guiding tenets and will cover the general approaches of ONOS towards device/protocol independence, distributed state management and providing applications with high-level control abstractions. Applications and use cases of ONOS will also be presented.


Ali Al-Shabibi is a software architect at Open Networking Lab where he maintains FlowVisor and OpenVirteX (network hypervisors) and is a core developer for ONOS. He is also the technical lead on CORD (Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter). Previously, he was a post-doc at Stanford University researching OpenFlow and SDNs in Nick McKeown’s group. He received his Ph.D from the University of Heidelberg in Germany in 2011 after performing his doctoral research at CERN (European Centre for Nuclear Research) in the ATLAS (A Toroidal Lhc ApparatuS) Networking group, where he contributed to the design and development of the TDAQ (Trigger and Data Acquisition ) Network. Prior to working at CERN, Ali studied at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) for his BSc and MSc degrees.

CORD (Central Office Re-architected as a Datacenter) combines NFV, SDN, and the elasticity of commodity clouds to bring datacenter economics and cloud agility to the Telco Central Office. CORD has emerged as a very useful and powerful systems platform for service providers and it is gaining lot of traction and momentum among providers and vendors. The ONOS Partnership with other collaborating organizations plan to launch CORD as an open source systems project during the next couple of months. An open reference implementation of CORD built from commodity servers, white-box switches, and open source software defines a general and extensible platform that supports a variety of domains and business units. 


Marc de Leenheer recently joined ON.Lab to work on FOAM and GENI. De Leenheer received his Masters in science and PhD in computer science engineering from Ghent University, Belgium. He completed post-doctoral stays at the University of California Davis and Stanford University, where he worked on the design and optimization of both core and access optical networks.
