In Shared Innovation By Open Networking Project Member Companies

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.

Currently, the projects within LFN are FD.io, OpenDaylight, , ONAP, OPNFV, PNDA, and SNAS. The independent projects are CORD, DPDK, Free Range Routing, IO Visor, ONOS, OpenContrail, Open Security Controller, OpenSwitch, and Open vSwitch.

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.”
