ETSI Open Source MANO (OSM) community has just reached the critical number of 100 participating organizations in the group.
A wide range of industry players are involved in the OSM community, including service providers, VNF vendors, distributors, system integrators and infrastructure providers, creating a diverse ecosystem developing NFV technologies for the upcoming 5G networks.
During the latest meeting of the OSM community, hosted by Telenor, the upcoming OSM Release (FIVE) started to take shape. 5G use cases, network slicing and micro-service orchestration were some of the key areas of discussion, as these topics are steering the development efforts for the upcoming release. A co-located Hackfest enabled participants to get hands-on experience with the newest OSM features, APIs and User Interface.
OSM is now getting ready for its 6th Plenary and 4th OSM Hackfest to be held from 29 October to 2 November 2018 in Palo Alto hosted by VMware.
