ONAP and OPNFV training sessions offered onsite at Open Networking Summit in Los Angeles will help you integrate open source into your NFV/SDN deployments.

If you are attending ONS, you know the value of open source projects. You know they are going to play a critical role in your ongoing or upcoming SDN/NFV transformation. Open source projects have become very successful in the enterprise space and they are poised to do the same in the communications service provider (CSP) arena.

In fact, several CSPs are already taking advantage of open source. Orange and China Mobile have used OPNFV continuous integration (CI) pipeline and testing projects to create an NFV onboarding framework within their organizations. Orange uses OPNFV for NFVI and VIM validation, VNF onboarding and validation, and network service onboarding. China Mobile uses OPNFV for their Telecom Integrated Cloud (TIC) to continuously integrate, onboard and test NFVI, VIM and VNFs; and full network service onboarding and testing using OPNFV is on their roadmap. In a nutshell, OPNFV tooling can drastically improve your NFV journey.

That leads to a question—how can you learn more about these projects, determine their value for your specific environment and map out your organization’s next steps? Certainly, you can review online materials on your own. However, if you are like me and learn best when another human being is providing or explaining the material starting with the basics, at an unhurried pace, then the ONAP and OPNFV training sessions offered onsite at Open Networking Summit in Los Angeles are something to consider. These training courses will empower you to integrate open source into your NFV/SDN deployments.

ONAP, the Open Network Automation Platform, provides network service design/lifecycle management and service assurance, and could serve as the centralpoint of your SDN/NFV efforts. Not only can ONAP fully automate network services, it can also help standardize VNF onboarding/validation, network service design, and analytic applications.

OPNFV, the Open Platform for NFV (OPNFV), creates reference architectures by integrating SDN/NFV-related open source projects, extensively tests the stack and fills feature gaps in upstream projects. OPNFV can be used to create reference stacks, validate and onboard VIM/NFVI/VNFs and establish interoperability. The OPNFV CI pipeline can also help organizations with cultural transformation to DevOps processes.

By taking either the ONAP or OPNFV course, you can learn deeply about the project, its components, and benefits to your organization. Both courses have two flavors —half day and full day. If your interest is mostly to get information, the half-day course is ideal. If you want to get your hands dirty, take the full-day course. All attendees will receive the same material in the morning. After lunch, full-day attendees will return and start hands-on labs. The OPNFV full-day course will take you through OPNFV deployment, Functest, and Yardstick testing projects. The ONAP full-day course will take you through ONAP deployment using OOM along with virtual firewall (vFW) network service creation and runtime. The labs are simple to follow but do require some basic Linux knowledge (i.e., command-line interface, elementary Linux commands including vi/vim, etc.)

If you will be at ONS and are interested in these areas, I encourage you to extend your stay through Friday and add a training course to your registration here.

For the past seven years, Open Networking Summit (ONS) has brought together the networking industry’s ecosystem of network operators, vendors, open source projects, leading researchers, and investors to discuss the latest SDN and NFV developments that will shape the future of the networking industry. With this year’s event, taking place March 26-29, 2018 in Los Angeles, ONS will evolve its approach as the premier open source networking event. We’re excited to share three new aspects of this year’s ONS that you won’t want to miss:

  • Present Less, Engage More

Sometimes it’s good to break the traditional mold. As ONS is an open source event, we hope to foster more collaboration with fewer formal presentations and more discussion within our keynotes. Attendees can expect more time to ask questions and explore demos while attending keynotes. This year’s sessions will cover forward-looking vision, disruption and strategy with an enterprise, cloud and server provider focus. Keynote presenters for this year include industry leaders from AT&T Labs, Arm, Ericsson, Google, Uber and many more. Learn more about ONS 2018 keynotes here.

  • Networking: Reimagined for Future Networks

Open source networking deployments are now expanding beyond the carrier world. Hear from industry visionaries and leaders on the future of networking beyond SDN/NFV, including 5G & IoT; cloud networking (Kubernetes); AI & ML applied to networks; and the use of networking technologies within other industry verticals such as FinTech and automotive. Whether you are new to these emerging technologies or want to deepen your technical understanding, our agenda will connect you with many organizations deploying open source networking solutions. Full agenda can be found here.

  • Welcome to Los Angeles!

We’re excited to feature ONS 2018 in a new location this year: Los Angeles! Unofficially known as the City of Dreams, we hope attendees will be inspired by the innovation and creativity of the area. The change of scenery brings us to the heart of Los Angeles, at the InterContinental Los Angeles Downtown, and will provide opportunities for networking (in every sense of the word).
