  • 50 organizations have joined the OSM community to shape NFV networks in 2017

    Following the publication of Release ONE in early October 2016, the OSM community continues to embrace new contributing organizations with more than 50 organizations coming together to develop production-grade Management and Orchestration (MANO) Software for deployment in 2017. This new milestone in community growth is closely mirrored by the strong interest that OSM Release ONE has seen in the global MANO ecosystem; more than 800 downloads from more than 50 countries in less than four weeks after release are a testament of the interest and engagement that the OSM community has been able to create with a broad set of operators, software vendors, system integrators and others.

    Looking ahead to the ETSI NFV Plugtest #1, the operator-led OSM initiative is excited about providing an open software platform for interoperability testing of Virtual Network Functions to enable a global ecosystem of software providers, and to provide tangible input into the ETSI MANO standardization process. Join the OSM community to build a production-quality MANO stack that meets the requirements of commercial NFV networks.

  • Open Source MANO Release ONE now available

    ETSI’s Open Source MANO (OSM) group has today announced the availability of its OSM Release ONE, an open source Management and Orchestration (MANO) software stack closely aligned with ETSI NFV, and focused on helping industry accelerate the implementation of network virtualization. The OSM community aims to deliver a production-quality open source MANO stack that meets the requirements of commercial NFV networks.

    Available less than six months since the inaugural meeting of the OSM community, Release ONE has been engineered, tested and documented to allow for rapid installation in operator labs worldwide that seek to create a scalable and interoperable open source MANO environment. Release ONE substantially enhances interoperability with other components (VNFs, VIMs, SDN controllers) and creates a plugin framework to make platform maintenance and extensions significantly easier to provide and support.

    Growing OSM community completes Release 1 mid-cycle working session to confirm September launch

    ETSI’s Open Source MANO (OSM) community held their first technical mid-release face-to-face meeting (MR#1) at the end of June to outline the requirements and development sprints for the upcoming Release 1, and to gather and document input for the longer-term architectural OSM roadmap. It was great to see more than 45 people gather in Madrid! The OSM community’s spirit of openness, close technical collaboration and focus on rapidly delivering working code to meet the requirements from its operator end-user advisory group resulted in substantive progress and agreement on interfaces, functional development areas and even two impromptu hackathons! Following OSM Release 0 at the end of May, Release 1 in September is targeted to enter NFV labs worldwide.

    Key presentations and new features discussed during the MR#1 sessions can be found in the OSM WIKI and by checking the latest information in the OSM Gerrit instance. Please note that the proposals, presentations and follow-ups on action items are reflective of the dynamic growth of the Open Source MANO community and may therefore be frequently updated.

  • OSM demo @TMForum Live! Nice

    ETSI OSM members and participants Telefónica, Indra and Comptel, plus Etiya, showed the Proof of Concept called “NFV Service Orchestration and Lifecycle Management based on Open Source MANO” in the TMForum event Live! 2016 that took place in Nice the 9th-12th of May.

    The demonstration showcased the use of the northbound interfaces exposed by OSM for Network Scenario onboarding, instantiation and management by Comptel’s FlowOne, which was acting as a E2E Orchestrator, managing both virtual and physical infrastructure. The scenario was an enrichment of what was shown on the MWC’16, this time including integration with real-world OSS/BSS and covering a hybrid environment.

    The booth was busy all the time, receiving more than 75 visits, with delegates from service providers such as Orange, BT, Vodafone, KDDI, Turkcell, SK Telecom, Globe, NTT y ATT and others. Attendants could see how an scenario of increasing complexity, composed of a number of virtual routers, traffic generator, physical router and an IMS core was composed and deployed using Comptel’s FlowOne user interface. Finally, user accounts were provisioned using Etiya’s Telaura CRM with a real phone-call as grand finale. Delegates showed interests in many different areas: about the state of OSM software, participants in the initiative, about the OSS/BSS systems used in the demo or even on NFV state of the art in general.
