At STORDIS we appreciate the advantages of working together to achieve more in less time. Sharing information and ideas is a characteristic trait of human nature. Creating and developing innovations by passing them on from one generation to another brought forth the greatest accomplishments in the history of mankind. With that in mind, we are contributing our achievements to relevant associations and communities to support a more effective and rapid development of Open Networking technology.
STORDIS is proud to be an OCP PLATINUM member. With the Open Compute Project (OCP) we share the same values and ideas. “We believe that openly sharing ideas, specifications, and other intellectual property is the key to maximizing innovation and reducing complexity in tech components.” – OCP: Our mission
STORDIS is sharing the hardware specifications of its Advanced Programmable Switches (APS) with the OCP community to help companies benefit from the full potential of the P4 programmable switches.
As an Innovator-Member of the Open Networking Foundation we actively contribute to existing projects such as Stratum and Trellis. Furthermore, STORDIS initiated the BroadCtrl project under ONOS to help the broadcasting industry benefit from P4 programmable switches. Traditional broadcast Infrastructure built with SDI Baseband Routers, coaxial cables and BNC connectors is transitioning to ethernet using off-the-shelf network switches and SDN control.
STORDIS is a proud Industry-Member of the P4 Language Consortium. P4 is a declarative language for telling forwarding-plane devices (switches, NICs, firewalls, filters, etc.) how to process packets. The STORDIS Advanced Programmable Switches are based on the powerful, fully P4-programmable Tofino ASICs from Barefoot Networks. As an expert on the P4 programming language, STORDIS ACADEMY is helping the community to better understand how to program in P4 and therefore partnered up with Barefoot to host unique training courses worldwide to provide insights into the latest P4 developments.
Even though STORDIS today is a solution provider for many verticals, the company has its roots in the broadcasting industry and still maintains very close relationships to partners in this vertical. With worldwide representation from both media companies and their suppliers, the AMWA currently focuses on the industry move to IP-based architectures. With our knowledge and experience we are helping broadcasters to benefit from the features of Open Networking technology.
To enable software-based systems to recognize and exploit devices, the AMWA has founded the Networked Media Open Specifications (NMOS). The goal of this initiative is to deliver interoperability and increase the choice of products across a wide range of suppliers. STORDIS is a Supplier-Member of the NMOS project.
The OSB Alliance is a joint venture of public institutions and companies operating in the Open Source and Open Networking industry. They aspire to expand the acceptance and the use of Open Source solutions and support Open Source vendors in Germany. They were founded in 2011 and by now the community counts 160+ members with more than 10,000 employees in total. They focus on interoperability, open standards, Open Source software and solutions, and business development to encourage digital transformation, network neutrality, unrestricted access to publicly funded software, and a secure usage of modern IT infrastructure. STORDIS is a member of the OSB Alliance since July 1st 2019.
