Lumina Extension & Adaptation Platform

Model-driven software platform to enable automation of heterogeneous network.

Lumina Extension & Adaptation Platform (LEAP) is a modern software framework from Lumina that enables automation of legacy network elements using model-driven frameworks, in an extensible fashion. LEAP extends Lumina’s OpenDayLight based SDN controller using a microservices architecture and enables better integration with business layers. LEAP also promotes the addition of new microservices based components in a language-agnostic manner, thereby enabling operators to use the Python skills of their DevOps teams to extend their service automation frameworks in-house, based on business demands, without dependency on external vendors.
