The OSM-MR#11 Hackfest will be fully dedicated to OAI 5G Core Network Functions packaging and onboarding to OSM Release TEN bringing yet a new challenge to OSM and OAI users and developers.

During the Hackfest kick-off, an overview of the OSM NF Onboarding in Guidelines will be provided by OSM community experts. Participants will be organized in teams to collaborate on the onboarding tasks. Through the Hackfest week and with the mentoring of OSM and OAI community experts, they will be challenged to build the packages, including NFV standardized descriptors, instantiation, Day-1, and Day-2 operations, and build a functional 5G Core. On the last day, each team will have the opportunity to demonstrate their achievements and the best onboarding demonstration will be awarded!
