Ciena Waveserver

This driver allows connection to the Ciena Waveserver

The User Guide for this product is available on request from Ciena, and gives a full explanation of the theory of operation, functionality and how all functions can be accessed through the REST interface.

Currently only a subset of it's functionality is supported through ONOS, but this will expand to full functionality in future releases.

Compile and Installation

Currently this driver is built using BUCK and uses version 2.1 of onos-yang-tools

All that is required to activate the driver is to run the following at the ONOS CLI

app activate org.onosproject.drivers.ciena.waveserver


Creating Devices

Ciena Waveserver Devices are not Openflow devices. The connectivity is initiated from ONOS. They have to be created through the network/configuration REST interface in ONOS.

  • The name must follow the format rest:ipaddr:port
  • The ip and port must correspond to the ip and port in the name (above).
curl -X POST
  -H 'Authorization: Basic b25vczpyb2Nrcw==' \
  -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
  -d '{
    "devices": {
      "rest:": {
        "rest": {
          "port": 443,
          "ip": "",
          "username": "su",
          "password": "cws",
          "protocol": "https",
          "url": "/yang-api/datastore/"
        "basic": {
          "driver": "ciena-waveserver-rest"

Verify Connected Device

When the Waveserver is configured and connected is should be visible in ONOS through the devices command.
