NFV Orchestration with Open Source MANO (OSM)

Automate the deployment and operations of network functions, and benefit from reduced operational costs, by using an open source implementation of ETSI NFV MANO. As a key contributor to the Open Source MANO project, Canonical is excited to help you on your NFV journey.

Open-source implementation of ETSI NFV MANO stack

  • Helps telecommunications service providers (TSPs) move from traditional, legacy networking services to cloud-native network functions.
  • Fully aligned with ETSI NFV Information Models.

Charmed OSM

To improve the stability of deployments and provide telcos with a production-grade platform, Canonical delivers a pure upstream OSM distribution - Charmed OSM.

  • Simplified deployment and operations
  • Highly available and resistant against failure
  • Predictable release cadence and upgrade path

Network functions onboarding

Workload diversity

OSM supports onboarding of virtualized network functions (VNFs), cloud-native network functions (CNFs) and physical network functions (PNFs) and reduces the complexity of day1 and day2 operations.

Onboarding Network Functions ›

Integration Management

Network functions are not alone

Juju in OSM integrates network functions with other non-functional requirements like monitoring, logging, auditing and scaling. Charmed operators automate application management by codifying business intentions.

Flexible VIM options

OSM supports all the major VIMs (virtualized infrastructure manager) in the ecosystem.

A single OSM instance can deploy network functions on OpenStack, AWS, VMware and k8s clusters.

Multi-cloud orchestration in OSM ›

Multi-vendor workloads

  • Provides support for open source and proprietary workloads.
  • Offers Juju as a generic network function manager.
  • Uses standard information and data models for multi vendor workloads.

Enterprise support

  • Features charmed OSM design and delivery.
