Anuket was the ancient Egyptian goddess of the Nile River. Originally a Nubian deity, she was usually depicted as a beautiful woman wearing a crown of reeds and ostrich feathers and accompanied by a gazelle. Anuket oversaw the fertility of the lands near the river and was recognized as the great nourisher of fields because of the annual flooding of the Nile that deposited the heavy layer of black silt that served to fertilize the crops that nourished a people and allowed the rise of civilization.
The Anuket project represents a confluence of parallel streams — OPNFV and CNTT — coming together to flow in unison with increased size, speed, and force to pull the industry together and create a fertile new landscape for innovation and collaboration in the networking industry.
The logo was chosen to invoke her ancient mystique of Anuket. The primary blues and greens of the water are accented by golden shores and fertile green fields and flowers. The observer, however, is free to interpret the logo any number of ways — a tidal moon, a headdress, a shepherd’s crook, and more. What do you see in Anuket?
