Stratum is an open source, silicon-independent switch operating system for software-defined networks

Up Men’s Boots Tan Boots inch Work Lightweight Tactical Hiking Free Military Desert for 6" Boots Climbing Lace soldier Boots Lace Up Desert 6" Climbing Boots Boots Military soldier Men’s Tan Work inch for Hiking Tactical Free Lightweight Backed by a broad spectrum of organizations from across the networking industry, Stratum is building an open, minimal, production-ready distribution for white box switches.  Stratum exposes a set of next-generation SDN interfaces including P4Runtime and OpenConfig, enabling interchangeability of forwarding devices and programmability of forwarding behaviors. Stratum delivers a complete white box switch solution truly delivering on the ‘software defined’ promise of SDN.

Next Generation SDN Interfaces

Enabling full lifecycle control and automated network management

  • Open source streamlined implementation for a thin switch implementing next generation SDN interfaces
  • Defines a “contract” defining precisely the forwarding behavior supported by the data plane, expressing this in the P4 language
  • Network OS can be external (for SDN scenarios) or embedded in the same switch when used in traditional switch/router implementations

Supports full lifecycle control and management, including:

  • Configuration
  • Control
  • Operations
  • Optional forwarding pipeline programmability

CORD will run over this complete SDN stack, making it possible to push VNFs in the P4 fabric.


Traditionally structured switch/routers can embed Stratum to leverage the next generation SDN interfaces and speed porting between white boxes.
