Prior to submitting a network device for ONIE certification, the following items '''must''' be performed:
 
* ONIE image for the device is openly available on the vendor's website
 
* ONIE source code for the device is openly available
 
** preferably in the main ONIE repository on [https://github.com/onie/onie/ GitHub]
 
* Ensure all other requirements are met as described in the testing document (i.e. asset tracking labels)
 
  
The certification process for ONIE will be as follows:

* Submit network device to ONIE certification lab
 
** '''NOTE: device is not returnable as this device will be used for all future ONIE certifications (on vendor's request)'''
 
* Once the device has been received, testing will begin no later than 5 business days
 
* Normal testing results should be available no later than 5 business days after testing has begun
 
** Test results will be sent directly to vendor and OCP C&I Director (only if device passed)
 
* OCP Foundation will issue certification voucher to vendor upon verification
 
* Vendor is now able to use ONIE Certified logo on website and marketing collateral

Open Network Install Environment

Created by Cumulus Networks, Inc. in 2012, the Open Network Install Environment (ONIE) Project is a small operating system, pre-installed as firmware on bare metal network switches, that provides an environment for automated operating system provisioning.

Incubated and adopted by the Open Compute Project in 2013, the ONIE project enables a bare metal network switch ecosystem where end users can choose among different network operating systems. ONIE enables switch hardware suppliers to manage their operations based on a small number of hardware SKUs. This in turn creates economies of scale in manufacturing and distribution enabling a thriving ecosystem of both network hardware and operating system alternatives.
