Use Cases

6WINDGate source code meets requirements for OEMs to build market leading solutions.



6WIND’s vRouters provide both traditional, CLI-based management and IT-style management based on automation and integration with high level orchestration tools. 6WIND proposes YANG-based NETCONF APIs and supports standard Linux APIs such as iproute and iptables. Configuration can happen through Linux, the CLI and APIs for integration with third-party management tools and orchestrators. For Monitoring, we support the traditional SNMP and syslog mechanisms, plus telemetry through sFlow and graphical analytics (Grafana) with time series data base, including pre-integration with InfluxDB and Grafana. Our data models leverage YANG and are therefore easily understandable and extensible.
