On January 1, 2018, we formed The LF Networking Fund (LFN), a new entity that increases collaboration and operational excellence across networking projects. LFN integrates the governance of participating projects in order to improve operational efficiencies and simplify member engagement. Each technical project retains its technical independence and project roadmaps.

The founding projects within LFN are FD.io, OpenDaylight, ONAP, OPNFV, PNDA, and SNAS.

Our goal is to leverage the operational knowledge and use cases innate to standards development organizations (SDOs) as well as the collaborative innovation and openness offered by open source.

XCI Solution Brief

“XCI is needed to address the complex testing challenges in OPNFV. From stress, to robustness, resiliency, VNF on-boarding and end-to-end testing, XCI is now a part of OPNFV’s DNA and allows us to test as closely as possible from upstream to provide realistic ‘telco grade’ feedback, including orchestration.”
