OSM PoC Framework

From OSM Public Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search


OSM members and users are encouraged to run Proofs of Concept (PoCs) relevant to contribute to further development of OSM. Multi-vendor PoCs are welcome.

OSM keeps track of the PoC activity in its WIKI and provides visibility of the PoCs to the community and broader audience.


The PoC framework in OSM is a lightweight approach. Some minimum criteria must be fulfilled for the PoC to be listed as an OSM PoC:

  • At least one member shall be OSM member or participant.
  • Core OSM components shall be used.
  • The PoC shall be presented to the OSM community.


The process of becoming OSM PoC is as follows:

  1. The PoC Team send the PoC proposal to the OSM_TECH mailing list in order to
    1. Inform the OSM community
    2. Get feedback from the OSM community
  2. The OSM TSC acknowledges the reception of the proposal and approves it to be listed as an OSM PoC. The OSM community is informed via the OSM_TECH mailing list.
  3. The PoC Team sends information required for publishing the PoC in the OSM WIKI to OSM MARCOM Task Force
  4. The PoC Team presents the PoC progress in (one or several) TECH meetings with the purpose to:
    1. Keep the OSM community up-to-date and receivet feedback
    2. Present final results and declare PoC Completion


  • The PoC will be provided an OSM PoC number, listed in the OSM web and promoted in social media.
  • OSM PoCs are encouraged to be presented in public venues and webinars (e.g. ETSI webinar).
  • PoCs will be eligible for the "Best New Feature Showcase Award" of the corresponding OSM Release.
