ONAP OPEN NETWORK AUTOMATION PROJECT MINI-SUMMIT
(YANGTZE 2)

 
 

 

In February 2017, the Linux Foundation introduced the Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP), which is the merger of the open source OPEN-O and ECOMP projects, code bases, and communities. The ONAP project allows operators to automate, design, orchestrate, and manage services and virtual functions.

In this Mini-Summit, active leaders and project participants present requirements, and discuss current progress & outlook for future developments.
