Learn Nokia SR Linux

Nokia Service Router Linux (SR Linux) is a truly open network operating system (NOS) that makes your data center switching infrastructure more scalable, more flexible and simpler to operate.

Get started

What is Nokia SR Linux?

SR Linux is a part of the Nokia Data Center Fabric solution that has been designed from the ground up to free your cloud builder networking teams to rapidly design and deploy, easily adapt and integrate and confidently operate and automate data center network fabrics: at scale.

SR Linux is a truly open, extensible and resilient network operating system (NOS) is the foundation of this next generation solution, enabling scalability, flexibility and efficiency across your data center and cloud environments.

Key features

Standard linux kernel

By using an unmodified Linux-based kernel as the foundation on which a suite of network applications is built, SR Linux provides reliability, portability and ease of application development.

Modular architecture

Designed from the ground up architecture that meets the demands of scalability, visibility and ease of operations.

Proven protocol stack

By using SR Linux, your data center operators benefit from the resilience, stability, scalability and proven interoperability of Nokia SR OS.

Streaming telemetry

SR Linux delivers an open and extensible infrastructure, which allows the retrieval of fine-grained system state, configuration setting, and a scalable interface to support more granular data with push-based streaming telemetry.

Customizable CLI

An advanced, Python-based CLI provides a flexible framework for accessing the system’s underlying data models. Operators can leverage CLI plugins to completely customize the way the CLI operates.

Network Development Kit (NDK)

The NDK enables operators to integrate their own and third-party applications into the system with all the same benefits as Nokia applications.
