ETSI's Centre for Testing and Interoperability and the OSM community are organizing a new OSM Hackfest from November 30 to December 4 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

The OSM#10 Hackfest will run in parallel with the OSM#10 Plenary meeting.


The OSM#10 Hackfest will consist of 4 main parts:

  • OSM Operations - 2,5 days dedicated to Network Operators, VNF Builders and OSM users, will guide participants through the step by step deployment, orchestration, slicing and operation of an hybrid Network Service based on Magma EPC with VNF, CNF and PNF components. Through this challenge, participants will be able to get familiar and experiment by themselves with OSM Release EIGHT features
  • OSM Ecosystem Day - half a day dedicated to anyone interested on learning on OSM deployments and success stories in the OSM Ecosystem
  • VNF Onboarding - 1 full day dedicated to VNF Builders and allowing them to learn to model, package and onboard a complex xNF from scratch and enable it to support:
    • Day 1 & 2 operations with OSM Primitives
    • High performance with EPA features
    • Service assurance, monitoring and auto-scaling
  • Community Sessions - 1 day dedicated to Developers and allowing new OSM community members to learn how to contribute to OSM . Participants will also benefit from and open Q&A session with the OSM TSC and Module Development Leads.

Who should attend

  • Network Operators and Service providers, who want to get first hand operational experience with OSM
  • VNF vendors, who want to onboard their VNF in OSM following best practices
  • System Integrators, who want to develop their expertise 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

  • 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
    • 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 it is recommended that you watch watch this video

  • 2:30 - 2:40 Welcome to the OSM#10 Ecosystem Day by Mona Hrapkowicz, Flextronics, OSM MARCOM Lead

The OSM Ecosystem Day and allow 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.

The SimulaMet OpenAirInterface VNF is a complex 4-VDU VNF, allowing its users to instantiate and maintain a tailor-made Enhanced Packet Core (EPC) for 4G/5Gmobile broadband testbeds. The EPC components are directly built from their sources during instantiation, allowing to use customized versions according to the users' needs. A general overview has already been presented during the OSM-MR#8 Hackfest in March 2020. In this presentation and live demonstration, we would like to highlight the solutions chosen to efficiently use OSM for handling the instantiation process, provide telemetry, and to debug issues. That is, we particularly would like to present to the audience the lessons learned during the ongoing development. Finally, we would also like to show the audience a live demo of an OSM-managed 4G testbed setup with telemetry collection.

Wipro in integrating ETSI Open Source MANO with TMF APIs and showcasing the implementation as a TMF Catalyst project. This talk will showcase network resource orchestration and how to extend to OSS support functions: order management, provisioning, activation, etc from an OSS and BSS perspective (demo)

The O-RAN Alliance is transforming the 5G Radio Access Networks (RAN) industry towards open, intelligent, virtualized and fully interoperable RAN. It is evolving radio access networks— making them more open and smarter than previous generations. The talk will present our point of view on using Open Source MANO (OSM) as the Service Management and Orchestration Framework (SMO) for O-RAN ecosystem. With O-RAN “RAN Slice SLA Assurance” use case the talk will present how Open Source MANO (OSM) is able to seamlessly manage the lifecycle of real-time application (xApp) as described in WG6 of O-RAN.

  • 3:55 - 4:30 Group Picture & Coffee Break

Model-driven operators address challenges in Kubernetes application management, especially for complex integrated workloads. Mark will demonstrate current work and outline future areas of research by Canonical in the open source arena.

Today, many real-world VNFs on which operator services depend, have not necessarily been designed for the cloud, but are an adaptation of an appliance, maintaining the same architectural principles. In this situation, the NFV Orchestrator needs to adapt to the mechanisms these VNFs have for automating their operations, and provide a generic VNF Manager that is capable of connecting to any given API or CLI. In this talk, we will present the challenges we usually face and how we are overcoming them with Whitestack's distribution of OSM, WhiteNFV.

In today’s virtualization world, there is a need to have a modeling tool to deploy and manage the software components as a service especially in the complex system where the components are interrelated. Canonical’s juju controller is designed and built from the ground up with the support for relations, dependencies, and operational events with the help of charms. In this demo, we would like to demonstrate Tata Elxsi’s 5G testbed deployment and management using Canonical’s Juju controller and Charmed OSM.
