As home to over a dozen leading open source projects, The Linux Foundation is driving momentum in open networking and redefining how service providers and enterprises create their networks and deliver services.
We are fostering collaboration and innovation across the entire open networking stack — from the data plane into the control plane, to orchestration, automation, end-to-end testing, and more.
On January 1, 2018, we formed Linux Foundation Networking (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.
Harmonizing Open Source and Standards in the Telecom World
In this white paper, we recast a key question under debate. Instead of ‘Standards vs. Open Source?’, we submit the question ‘How can open source complement standardization to improve market adoption?’ Our goal is to exploit the operational knowledge and use cases innate to Standards Development Organizations (SDOs), with 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.”
