ETSI's Centre for Testing and Interoperability and the OSM community organised the OSM Mid-Release 10 Hackfest from 08 to 12 March 2021. The event was run remotely, allowing participants to join the hands-on sessions from home.

IMPORTANT: Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and associated travel / hosting restrictions, the OSM MR#10 Hackfest was run remotely (as it was done for the OSM#10 Hackfest). 


The OSM-MR#10 Hackfest, the very first one featuring OSM Release NINE, consisted on a series of sessions allowing participants to exchange and learn about:

  • How to operate OSM
  • Discovering and experimenting with latest features in OSM Release NINE
  • Modeling, packaging and on-boarding VNFs, PNFs or CNFs, Network Services, and Slices
  • Developing OSM Primitives for automating Day1-2 operations
  • Troubleshooting, debugging and modifying code in OSM Modules
  • ... and much more!

In addition, participants were able to hear from key players in the OSM Ecosystem, who shared how OSM is helping them to achieve their goals and latest deployments during the OSM-MR#10 Ecosystem Day.

Wednesday afternoon was dedicated to the OSM Ecosystem Day, which allowed organisations in the OSM Ecosystem to share how they are using OSM and how it is helping them to achieve their goals. Presentations and demos covered a wide range of aspects from research activities in academia to production deployments and commercial initiatives, many of them focused in 5G use cases.
