The scope of this hackfest was related to on-boarding of Magma 1.7 release, which provides 5G capabilities to an open source core project.

Participants were able to experience during this hackfest the following activities:

  • deploy Magma (AGW and Orchestrator components)
  • automate adding subscribers to Magma
  • test S1AP in an automated way
  • use Wireshark to capture packets and see call flows for UE/CPE basic registration

This edition was featuring OSM Release TWELVE and took the form of a team challenge. The event spanned accross the week, Monday to Friday.

Participants formed teams of up to 5 members and worked jointly on tasks. Some of the tasks solutions were presented during the event by mentors. These guides were published after the event.

The last day, each team had the opportunity to demonstrate their achievements and the best demonstration was awarded!

Briefing sessions were recorded, allowing everyone to follow them up at their own pace after the event.
