Uplink and downlink ports are not blocked when a device is connected because of equal bandwidth. This means that the device can be connected to the network without the need for a delay, lowering cost per port.
We are working on a user interface for VyOS. Designed to run in Docker, this will be fully-featured, responsive, and accessible.
Network Hardware Certification
We are working to develop certification programs for software-defined networking (SDN) and network function virtualisation (NFV) that will be recommended for new devices to be able to be deployed into the NFV ecosystem. This will include a certification program for hardware devices that will be able to be used in the NFV ecosystem.
