Basebox is the BISDN controller package for data center networks with the following combinable elements:

  • The BISDN Linux Distribution is a Yocto-based operating system for selected whitebox switches
  • baseboxd is a controller daemon integrating whitebox switches into Linux
  • Standard Linux daemons like FRR or systemd-networkd allow easy network configuration

Basebox can either run directly on the switch or in a separate controller machine. The solution addresses issues of orchestration, flexibilization, high availability and further automation in various scenarios.
