Preparing for Tomorrow with Tail-f
For over a decade, OneAccess has been delivering enterprise network functions designed specifically for service providers’ needs: performance in compact multi-service access routers. As part of its commitment to ensuring its solutions can easily scale to meet operators’ needs today and in the future, OneAccess launched a complete redesign of its core networking stack to prepare for its move into the high gig space. That required a switch to multi-core technology, triggering the decision to look for a new management and programmability solution.
Part of the process entailed identifying and eliminating the bottlenecks in development efficiency, especially in the management space. OneAccess had been very CLI driven, and that was slowing down development. They needed to move toward a service-oriented approach to network management and programmability by embracing the IETF’s Network Configuration Protocol (NETCONF) and YANG.
So, the search began for a highly data model oriented management system that could also address the YANG standard. The solution was clear - Tail-f ConfD.

“When redesigning our next-generation networking operating system OneOS, we chose ConfD as the cornerstone of our management plane. Beyond providing us a future-proof design with full NETCONF capability, it has been a tremendous accelerator for the integration of our products in next generation orchestrators, and in particular, NSO from Cisco.”
