ETSI's Centre for Testing and Interoperability and the OSM community organised the OSM Hackfest on 7-11 September 2020. The event was run remotely, allowing participants to join the hands-on sessions from home.
The OSM-MR#9 Hackfest was run in parallel with the OSM Mid-Release NINE (OSM-MR#9) community meeting.
IMPORTANT: Due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and associated travel / hosting restrictions, the OSM Mid-Release #9 Hackfest was run remotely (as it was done for the OSM#9 Hackfest).
The OSM-MR#9 Hackfest guided participants through the step by step on-boarding, deployment and end-to-end testing of an hybrid Network Service: a Magma EPC with VNF, CNF and PNF components. Through this challenge, participants were able to get familiar and experiment by themselves with latest OSM features such as:
- VNF Package Management
- Automating Day 1 & 2 operations with OSM Primitives
- Orchestrating VNFs, CNFs and PNFs
- Enabling high performance VNFs
- Underlay automation with SDN Assist
- Service assurance, monitoring and auto-scaling
- Network slicing
- Placement optimization
In addition, participants could benefit of an open Q&A session with OSM experts and learn about success stories of OSM deployments in the OSM Ecosystem day.
