(Ross) 2016 Applied Research Center for Computer Networks at «Sdn&Nfv Russia 2016»

International SDN&NFV Conference «SDN&NFV Russia 2016» took place at Holiday Inn Suschevsky on March 3, 2016.

Representatives of national regulatory authorities, equipment vendors, telecom operators, solution providers, representatives of IT departments and corporate sector services, business and industry media representatives, attended the event.

More information about the conference is available on the website.

Alexander Shalimov, ARCCNARCCN lead programmer-researcher Alexander Shalimov has presented the high performance SDN/OpenFlow controller — RUNOS.

The controller is designed by ARCCN team based on the experience from comparative analysis of about thirty OpenFlow-controllers that existed at that time.

Easy-to-use version of RUNOS (which is available on

contains the following functionality: advanced scheduling algorithms, wide northbound interfaces, ability to run multiple applications.

Various control applications are available for these controllers: L2 / L3 routing with quality of service, multi-path routing, ACL filtering, traditional protocols proxies (ARP, DNS, DHCP, and BGP), network address translation (NAT), load balancing, network virtualization, anti-DDOS, network verification, integration with OpenStack. At the conference, ARCCN presented RUNOS for operators.

Runos provides L2 connectivity services: pseudo wires/VPNs, paths reservation, load balancing, hierarchical QoS, multicast, high availability, etc.  

Talking about our solution, Alexander emphasized the importance of constant adaptation to the changing needs of telecom operators, and invited everyone to visit demo shows at Applied Research Center for Computer Networks.
