ETSI's Centre for Testing and Interoperability and the OSM community are organizing the 3rd OSM Hackfest on 25-29 June 2018. The event will be hosted by Telenor in Oslo, during the OSM Mid Release 5 meeting.


The goal of this OSM Hackfest is to exercise all the main functionalities provided by OSM Release FOUR from basic operations (installation, setup, common operations, etc.) to most advanced activities, with a big focus on VNF on-boarding activities, covering Day 0/1/2 operations.


  • Install OSM and run some examples
  • Get familiar with OSM's GUI and CLI
  • Create your own VNF and NS descriptors and build packages
  • Understand how to deploy NS/VNF with EPA
  • Learn how to add dynamic LCM with Day-1 and Day-2 actions with charms
  • Basic troubleshooting
