ETSI's Centre for Testing and Interoperability and the OSM community are organizing a new OSM Hackfest on 7-11 September 2020. 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 September 3rd

The OSM-MR#9 Hackfest will run in parallel with the OSM Mid-Release NINE (OSM-MR#9) community meeting.


The OSM-MR#9 Hackfest will guide participants through the step by step on-boarding, deployment and end-to-end testing of an hybrid Network Service: a Magma EPC with VNF, CNF and PNF components. Through this challenge, participants will be able to get familiar and experiment by themselves with latest OSM features such as:

  • VNF Package Management
  • Automating Day 1 & 2 operations with OSM Primitives
  • Orchestrating VNFs, CNFs and PNFs
  • Enabling high performance VNFs
  • Underlay automation with SDN Assist
  • Service assurance, monitoring and auto-scaling
  • Network slicing
  • Placement optimization

In addition, participants will benefit of an open Q&A session with OSM experts and learn about success stories of OSM deployments in the OSM Ecosystem Day

  • System Integrators, who want to develop their expertise with OSM
  • Service providers, who want to get first hand operational experience with OSM
  • Academia and Universities, who are using or considering OSM as platform for their research activities in networking
  • Experimented developers and users that want to share and test with the community

OSM Ecosystem Day

The OSM Ecosystem Day allows organizations in the OSM Ecosystem to share how they are using OSM and how it 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.
