ETSI's Centre for Testing and Interoperability and the OSM community are organizing a new OSM Hackfest on 8-12 March 2021. The event will be run remotely, allowing participants to join the hands-on sessions from home.

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

Registration deadline is Thursday March 4th


The OSM-MR#10 Hackfest, the very first one featuring OSM Release NINE brings a brand new challenge to OSM users and developers:

  • You (or your team) will become a telco operator and will have one week to build your network as a service offering for small businesses.
  • You will be provided a complete telco cloud environment with a Kubernetes Cluster and an OpenStack NFVI&VIM.
  • You will need to deploy several services to complete your offering for small businesses:
    • A Firewall, to keep their data safe
    • An LDAP server, to centralize their user management
    • A Wiki Server, for their internal documentation
    • A Virtual PC for each employee, as they won't have the budget for purchasing laptops
    • A centralized Service Monitoring, to make sure they know if there are performance issues
    • A Web Proxy, so you they can block certain sites, and optimize internet usage
  • In order for the company to succeed, you need to be able to create and manage all these services, and what better way to do that, than automating the whole with ETSI OSM: an end to end management and orchestration solution?

Through this challenge, participants will learn and exchange about:

  • How to operate OSM
  • Discovering and experimenting with latest features in OSM Release NINE
  • Modeling, packaging and on-boarding VNFs, PNFs, CNFs, Network Services, and Slices with ETSI NFV standardized descriptors.
  • Developing OSM Primitives for automating Day 1-2 operations
  • Troubleshooting, debugging and modifying code in OSM Modules
  • ... and so much more!

In addition, participants will hear from key players in the OSM Ecosystem, who will share how OSM is helping them to achieve their goals and latest deployments during the OSM-MR#10 Ecosystem Day

Who should attend

  • VNF vendors, who want to onboard their VNF in OSM following best practices
  • System Integrators, who want to develop their expertise with OSM
  • Service Providers, who want to get first hand operational experience with OSM
  • Students and Researchers, who are using or considering OSM as platform for their research activities in networking
  • OSM users and developers willing to share, learn and test with the community

  • Registration is mandatory!
  • Participants are expected to be familiar with NFV and SDN concepts and have user-level knowledge of Linux, OpenStack and Kubernetes
  • You will need your laptop and good internet access
    • A remote environment will be made available through VPN for participants to run the hands-on sessions
    • If you prefer to install OSM in your own laptop and orchestrate your own cloud, please follow the OSM Quick Start Guide
  • Before the hackfest you can get familiar with OSM by watching this video or reviewing previous hackfests' material

  • 2:30 - 2:35 Welcome to the OSM-MR#10 Ecosystem Day by Mona Hrapkowicz, Flextronics & OSM MARCOM Lead

The OSM Ecosystem Day allows organizations in the OSM Ecosystem to share about 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, many of them focused in 5G use cases.

ETSI ZSM ISG PoC#2 aims at the demonstrating the capacity to automatically scale out a network slice instance deployed across multiple administrative domains. This is achieved using the 5G assets of 5G-VINNI. 5G-VINNI is a large-scale, end-to-end 5G facility composed of several interworking sites, each corresponding to a different EU node and defining a single administrative domain. The management and orchestration capabilities of individual 5G-VINNI facility sites, and the enablers allowing for the interworking across them, are aligned with ZSM architectural design principles. This presentation provides an overview of ZSM ISG PoC#2, showing how OSM stack provides automation means for a zero-touch scaling operation over a multi-site network slice.

Graylog is one of the most popular tools for opensource monitoring and log management in telco environments. We will show how Charmed OSM with the help of juju eases its deployment and integration with MongoDB, elastic search, and other charmed telco network function elements. The same goes for a basic LMA stack with Prometheus and Grafana.

5G communications have become an enabler for the creation of new and more complex networking scenarios, bringing together different vertical ecosystems. Such behavior has been fostered by the Network Function Virtualization (NFV) concept, where the orchestration and virtualization capabilities allow the possibility of dynamically supplying network resources according to vertical needs. In this presentation, we will first describe an NFV-based framework capable of supporting the flexible, cost-effective deployment of vertical services, through the integration of two NFV infrastructures: an infrastructure of Small sized Unmanned Aerial Vehicles(SUAVs), which can be deployed on demand, and an automotive infrastructure, supporting the opportunistic provision of services. To showcase the potential benefits of the proposed framework, the presentation describes an illustrative vertical use case that can be realized on top of it. The use case considers a municipal authority that deploys a service on aerial and vehicular NFV infrastructures to monitor traffic conditions. In case that an emergency situation is detected(e.g., a vehicle collision), the municipal authority uses the MANO stack to instantiate an additional service aimed at assisting emergency operations in this new scenario.

Telenity will present its journey and experience about the EMEA region’s first complete NFV based VAS domain deployment comprising multiple messaging and VAS solutions as part of Telenity’s VAS Consolidation Platform, deployed on Release 13 of the RedHat OpenStack NFVI and governed by Release EIGHT of the ETSI Open Source NFV Management and Orchestration (Open Source MANO) stack. With this deployment, Telenity swapped12 different VAS offerings from 6 different vendors, migrating them to NS/VNFs consolidated across a geo-redundant architecture. All components of the solution (NFVI/VIM, VNFM/NFVO, NS/VNFs) have been delivered, integrated and launched by Telenity as a turnkey project. The deployed NFV framework also permits the mobile operator to onboard third-party VAS NS/VNFs.

5G networks include several heterogenous devices and technologies with an increasing complexity of network infrastructures and services that is affecting Service Providers’ management tasks. Orchestration, automation, analytics and AI/ML techniques are becoming important assets towards the implementation of automated network and service management procedures. At the same time, future networks will be intent-based, with the purpose of hiding such complexity and enabling network and service adaptation depending on a business logic. The proposed demo shows the automated scaling of a virtual Content Delivery Network performed upon the runtime evolution of the service’s intent. In the demonstration the Vertical Slicer prototype, developed by Nextworks, has been integrated with ETSI Open Source MANO as NFV Orchestrator. Following the ETSI ENI approach, multi-layer data collected at virtual infrastructure and application feed a Cognitive Network Management system that recognizes changes in the service’ intents and takes optimization decisions for data-driven closed-loop automations.

This presentation tackles the adoption and integration of the OSM within the Teraflow project solution. In a nutshell, Teraflow projects aims at designing and deploying an advanced SDN operating system supporting automated and zero touch service management of heterogeneous transport technologies (IP and Optical). Such an SDN OS will be based on a cloud native architecture handling tera of flows (IoT) and appealing features for multi-domain, multi-vendor, multi-tenancy, and AI-based cybersecurity solutions.
