Canonical becomes founding member of Open Source MANO (OSM) group

John Zannos

on 22 February 2016

Earlier today, Telefonica announced the creation of the Open Source MANO (OSM) group and I am delighted to say that Canonical is one of the eight founding members of this community. A total of 23 Service Providers and Solution Vendors will work together to focus on delivering an open source Management and Orchestration (MANO) stack aligned with ETSI NFV Information Models. OSM has been created under the umbrella of ETSI. It is an operator-led community to meet the requirements of production NFV networks such as a common Information Model (IM) that has been defined, implemented and released in open source software. Its main objective is to deliver a production-quality open source MANO stack. Canonical’s Juju, the open source  generic VNF manager, provides  generic application modelling enabling OSM Orchestration and VIM layers to focus on industry-specific orchestration challenges, and is central to the delivery of the OSM project stack. Juju enables the industry to collaborate and crowd-source expertise in performance, security and integration. Canonical is focused on working with the Telecom market to accelerate the adoption and deliver the promise of NFV. Management and Orchestration is a critical part of network virtualization architecture. We will continue to bring open source innovation and expertise to Telecom. I welcome the opportunity to talk with any Telecom carrier, VNF ISV, SI or hardware company about OSM and our efforts in NFV. Details of the production-quality open source MANO stack that will address multiple use cases for carrier-grade network functions virtualization (NFV) can be reviewed in a whitepaper co-authored with Intel.
