Networking technologies are changing the business landscape. Industry is shifting from specialized hardware to Software development, including Open Source.

Rapid growth of the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, data storage, network security, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and smart technologies are testing companies’ ability to keep pace in a global marketplace and creating new customer demands.

As a result of increasing automation, cloud usage, greater collaboration and evolving applications, organizations are de-centralizing their infrastructure approaches to optimize connectivity. Meanwhile, businesses are integrating Software-Defined Networking in Wide Area Networks (SD-WAN), which not only simplifies management and operation functions, but delivers flexible network infrastructures. Experts predict Intent-based networking — which provides the ability to connect infrastructures with business goals — will become more mainstream. Furthermore, as applications shift to containers and Kubernetes, the complexity of managing networks may challenge companies. Nonetheless, businesses — Cisco, IBM, Juniper Networks, Mellanox Technologies, NETGEAR and SERCOMM — are joining our community’s mission to enable freedom of action for members and users of Linux/OSS-based technology through a patent non-aggression cross-license in the Linux System.

What Our Computer Networking & Security Members Say

With the Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) reshaping what is possible in industrial settings — improving productivity, enhancing operational efficiency and increasing customer choice — we view Linux and other open source projects as key enablers in the IIOT. The success of the IIOT is predicated on the ability to connect and manage widely distributed sensors and devices across numerous vertical industries and compute the data effectively on an industrial scale.
