What is Nokia SR Linux?

SR Linux is a network operating system that is open, extensible, visible and consumable. Designed for IP and data center networks, SR Linux offers to network operators a network operating system that is easy to automate, integrate and adapt to their specific requirements. All this while providing the same level of stability, scalability and reliability that Nokia SR OS is known for.

SR Linux opens the NOS infrastructure with a unique architecture built from the ground up around model-driven management and modern interfaces. This approach simplifies your operations and integrations while giving you the ultimate in visibility and flexibility.

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, network 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.
