Open Source Networking Project

March 12, 2009

A team of international student and Sun Campus ambassador Alper Celik, developed an open source networking solution at KTH – Stockholm, which converts a regular PC into a router !!!

OpenCASE is an Open Source project. This project’s outcome is a whole network solution completely based on open source software. Using OpenCASE solution, regular PCs can be turned into routers. But not only that, they can also run networking services like Network Administration, Traffic Monitoring, DNS, Web Server and so on.

Open source networking solution, which is 70% cheaper than proprietary alternatives in the market, developed to help capacity building in African Research and Education Networks. Open Case’s software, which is completely free, customizable and open for further improvements, has been developed to be used in regular PCs. The software provides complete network systems that include not only the routing but also the management and security means. Comparison tests against well known network companies’ products gave great results and proved what our technology can truly deliver on the promises of internet today.
