Discussion Highlight: 

The purpose of the group:

  • The group is not to create standard, but to create service level specification.
  • Ability to communicate policies & capability between domains.
  • Controller/Orchestrator, 


Many SDOs (BBWF, MEF, ONF) have reached out to ONUG for liaisons. Not sure if we need to partner with all of them.


Linda Dunbar from Huawei volunteered.

Steve: it is good that you can be primary. For meetings you can’t attend, you can ask for more.

Review of the current Status. 

–  The group will have 3 Interim sessions and 4 in-person meeting.

–  Added the additional use cases of SD-WAN provider peering as a transit path.

–  Service proposals: reachability – API method, & Authentication Proposal.

–  Will focus on SD-WAN service definitions, very much like what MEF defines the Ethernet services, including:

o   Path Management service Definition

o   Authentication between domains

o   Security (confidentiality/crypto)

o   Reachability route exchange

o   Segmentation

o   Service mapping at exchange points

o   Cloud Services Access: vPC, SaaS, IaaS

o   Service Chaining 

o   Application name mapping 

Proposed work:

–  Metadata exchange 

–  Path selection 

Toshal Dudhwala: Want to make sure that API is not the only proposal . There is BGP based also.

Steve: you are correct. We will make changes on the slides. 

Nick: ONUG is not a standard group. We hope to be able to break them into pieces, and hand to the right organization to specify the standard.

Agenda for NYC meeting (2/15 and 3/28; both at BNY Mellon, 101 Barclay St)

– Scoping of a PoC or Demo if possible

– Work breakdown

– Volunteers

– Contributions to Service Specifications

– API /Interface discussions – Getting started on definitions.

Steve: the NYC meeting is not like IEEE802 meeting. It is not as deep.

Xx: are we expecting more vendors? 

Steve: we similar vendors’ participants as last year. Silverpeak may join

Anusha: I am representing them. 

Jeannette: on the wiki there is the list of vendor participants:
