ETSI launches OSM Release EIGHT

Service Assurance and High Availability for large scale cloud-native deployments

Sophia Antipolis, 28 July 2020

ETSI is pleased to unveil Open Source MANO (OSM) Release EIGHT. This new release adds ultra-scalable service assurance capabilities, support for new resilience schemes, and facilitates the visual operation for large-scale network deployments from Cloud to Edge.

Much more than “bells and whistles”, Release EIGHT brings a new framework for the real-time gathering of metrics and alerts, designed to manage service assurance in large production deployments. Although this new framework is agnostic of the specific monitoring method, Release EIGHT makes the use of SNMP (Simple Network Management Protocol) monitoring particularly easy, considering its vast popularity in commercial VNFs (Virtual Network Functions).
