The OpenSourceMANO community is organizing the OSM#15 Ecosystem Day on Wednesday, 14th June. The event will be hosted by CTTC and co-located with the OSM#15 Hackfest and OSM#15 Plenary Meeting taking place 12-16 June, 2023.

The OSM Ecosystem Day allows organizations in the OSM Ecosystem to share about their Open Source MANO experience and how OSM is helping them to achieve their goals. Presentations and demos cover a wide range of aspects from research activities in academia to production deployments and commercial initiatives, mostly focusing on cutting-edge Telco use cases.

Participation is free and open to all upon registration.

Registration is free of charge and open to all, register here! You are most welcome to invite your colleagues and partners to join us.


  • 3:00 - 3:10 - Welcome to the OSM#15 Ecosystem Day
  • 3:20 - 3:35 - ETSI OSM-TFS Integration: New WIM-related features and future OSM+TFS integration plans - TeraFlowSDN + CTTC
    • By Lluis Gifre , Senior Researcher, and Ricard Vilalta, Research Director at CTTC
    • During this talk we will describe the new features contributed by H2020 TeraFlow R&D project and the ETSI TeraFlowSDN members to enable the integration of the TeraFlowSDN controller as a WIM for ETSI OSM. We will also cover the next steps in our roadmap to leverage an integrated end-to-end validation scenario for OSM and TFS. This scenario will feature OSM as the NFV orchestrator, TFS as a WIM for OSM, 2 x MicroStack-based VIMs managed by OSM, and an additional node emulating a WAN network interconnecting the VIMs. The WAN network will be controlled by TFS based on the requests from OSM.
  • 3:35 - 4:00 - MEC Practical Realization using OSM - IT
    • By Pedro Escaleira, Researcher at IT
    • Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) is a computing paradigm that has gained some traction since it can be seen as a 5G enabler, allowing computation to be conducted on the network's Edge instead of on distant Cloud servers, leading to a decrease in latency and throughput increase. These advantages are crucial for multiple businesses’ vertical use cases, such as Smart Factories, Intelligent Transportation Systems, Smart Cities, or Big Data Analytics, among many others. However, although some standardization organizations, such as the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI), have been gathering efforts to specify this new paradigm, there is still some lack of real implementations and evaluations of a fully functional MEC architecture, as well as one that incorporates some of the most recent additions to the Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) conceptualization, such as the usage of Cloud-based Network Functions (CNFs), which would allow having a Platform as a Service (PaaS) model in the Edge. With this in mind, this presentation showcases the NETEDGE project results, explicitly focusing on the installation and testing within a real Edge Environment. More concretely, we will demonstrate the realization of our Business to Business to Consumer (B2B2C) scenario, where a neutral Telco Operator offers an Edge Platform as a Service to other Communication Providers, which, in turn, will provide their clients a platform for them to install MEC Applications. Moreover, our practical scenario involves two factories, corresponding to the Edge sites, and a private cloud, where all the management and orchestration entities control the overall infrastructure. Our final results demonstrated that a neutral operator could offer other operators a fully functional Edge platform based on OSM in less than 15 minutes.
  • 4:00 - 4:30 - Group Picture & Coffee Break sponsored by TeraFlow
  • 4:30 - 4:55 - OSM in 5G testbeds for automating service experimentation in Transport and Logistics sectors - DHL Supply Chain
    • By Juan Manuel Sen, DHL Supply Chain
    • The VITAL-5G platform offers 5G testbeds where 3rd party application developers can build new services and validate their network applications in real Transport and Logistics facilities extended with configurable 5G connectivity. The three VITAL-5G testbeds in Athens, Galati and Antwerp provide diverse environments, with river and sea ports and a warehouse, suitable for experimenting with different scenarios and use cases. All testbeds deploy edge and cloud platforms with OSM as orchestrator, enabling the provisioning, automation, configuration and monitoring of Network Applications delivered as VMs or containers over OpenStack or Kubernetes clusters. The demo shows the modelling and onboarding of Network Applications and end-to-end service for assisted navigation in the VITAL-5G catalogue, with the corresponding KNFs/VNFs loaded in OSM. The service provisioning coordinates the selection or creation of 5G network slices with the instantiation and configuration of the virtual application components in OSM and their connection to the mobile network. Finally, the automation of the experiment execution exploits a pre-defined set of OSM Day-2 primitives, which experimenters can customize for their own test cases. The VITAL-5G platform is now ready to host 3rd party experiments and support the envisioned stakeholder communities for onboarding/developing their Network Applications and exploring their innovative ideas. Developers are welcome to apply for testing their applications, compatible with OSM, in 5G-enabled T&L facilities. Download demo video
  • 4:55 - 5:20 - Telco Cloud footprint and OSM as part of it - Whitestack (Demo)
    • By Sergio Tarazona, Technical Solutions Architect at Whitestack
    • In this session we will talk about the footprint for Telco Cloud using open technologies and how OSM is an important part of it
  • 5:20 - 5:30 - Wrap-up of the OSM#15 Ecosystem Day
  • 8:00 - ... - Networking Dinner
