Nokia has announced its collaboration with Microsoft as part of the SONiC initiative, an open source network operating system based on Linux that has been production-hardened in the data centers of some of the largest cloud-service providers.

Nokia is strongly committed to delivering the most robust network infrastructures possible with a keen focus on resilient and efficient operations at scale.

The President of IP and Optical Networks at Nokia, Sri Reddy, said: “The SONiC initiative represents yet another dimension of our collaboration with Microsoft, and is consistent with our commitment to customers building the biggest and most advanced datacenter infrastructures. We are happy to bring our experience to bear in delivering the most robust and capable chassis-based SONiC implementation possible.”
