NetScout brings smart data technology to LFN
April 11, 2018 / Nathan Cranford
The Linux Foundation Networking Fund (LFN) continues to grow with NetScout Systems Inc. jumping on board as its newest member. LFN was founded at the beginning of the year as a way to house the Linux Foundation’s open source projects centered on creating an open ecosystem for telecom operators under a single roof. Among its founding members include OpenDaylight, OPNFV, ONAP, FD.io, PNDA and SNAS. NetScout is a provider of application and network performance management products. As a member of the LFN, NetScout will be able to collaborate with the open source community with its virtualized visibility instrumentation and smart data solutions, which provide actionable metadata and KPIs, according to the company.
