Stratum

Flexible and Versatile Open Source Platform for Swift Integration, Comprehensive Control and Automated Network Management
Stratum is an open source switch operating system for software-defined networks and was developed in the context of the Stratum Project by the Open Networking Foundation (ONF). The members of the project intended to create a silicon-independent reference implementation for white box switches supporting the most possible SDN interfaces and to run on existing fixed systems, as well as on state-of-the-art programmable silicon. Stratum is a versatile platform leveraging the capabilities of other open source projects, such as P4, ONIE and ONL. It enables swift integration of devices into network infrastructures, and provides an open source solution for fully-programmable data planes.
