ETSI's Centre for Testing and Interoperability and the OSM community organized the 5th OSM Hackfest on 4-8 February 2019. The event will be hosted by CTTC in Castelldefels (Barcelona), co-located with the OSM Mid-Release SIX meeting.


This OSM Hackfest will allow new users to get familiar with OSM Rel FIVE and exercise all the main functionalities, 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.
In addition, experienced users and developers will have the opportunity to hack into OSM, fine-tune, test and demonstrate Rel FIVE and experimental features on the OSM Remote Labs network.

Objectives - OSM Hackfest participants will learn to:

  • Install OSM and run some examples
  • Get familiar with OSM's GUI and CLI
  • Create your own VNF and NS descriptors and build packages
  • Model and deploy NS/VNF with EPA capabilities
  • Model dynamic Life Cycle Management operations with Day-1 and Day-2 actions
  • Perform Basic troubleshooting
  • Configure Fault and Performance management and close-loop operations
  • Modify and experiment with OSM source code
  • Build complex examples and rum own experimental testing

  • System Integrators, who want to get used with OSM
  • Service providers, who want to get first hand operational experience with OSM
  • Academia and Universities, who are considering OSM as platform for their research activities in networking
  • Experimented developers and users that want to share and test with the community

Prerequisites that are absolutly needed:

  • Seats are limited, registration is mandatory
  • Laptop / VM in laptop
    • Linux installed (preferred, Ubuntu 16.04)
