Real-world Open Networking. Part 2 – Interoperability: The Holy Grail

In our last post we described the attributes of an Open Network Solution. In this post we unpack what surely is the “Holy Grail” of Open Networks: Interoperability. Interoperability is defined as: Bottom line, interoperability means that I can freely substitute components, i.e. If I have Component X in my Open Networking solution, then in …
