ETSI's Centre for Testing and Interoperability and the OSM community are organizing the 6th OSM Hackfest on 13-17 May 2019.

The event will be hosted by INTEL in Santa Clara (CA, USA), co-located with the OSM#7 plenary meeting, offering a great opportunity to share and learn with OSM developers and module leaders, and explore further opportunities for synergies and collaboration.

Participation to OSM Hackfests is free and open to all upon Registration

This OSM Hackfest will allow new users to get familiar with OSM Release FIVE and exercise all the main functionalities, from basic operations (installation, setup, common operations, etc.) to most advanced activities, such as 5G network slicing and end-to end service orchestration, with a big focus on VNF on-boarding activities covering Day 0/1/2 operations.

In addition, experienced users and developers will have the opportunity to hack into OSM, build complex examples, fine-tune, test and demonstrate Release SIX and experimental features on the OSM Remote Labs network.

  • Install OSM and run some examples
  • Get familiar with OSM's GUI and CLI
  • Create own VNF and NS descriptors and build packages
  • Model and deploy NS/VNF with EPA capabilities
  • Model dynamic Life Cycle Management operations with Day-1 and Day-2 actions
  • Model 5G Network Slices and complex NS with PNFs
