Governance for the The LF Networking Fund (“LFN”) is set forth in the project’s charter. The Governing Board of LFN is responsible for oversight of LFN, with a Technical Advisory Committee (“TAC”) responsible for assisting in the coordination of, and communication among, the various technical efforts supported by LFN.

LFN offers three levels of membership for for-profit entities (Platinum, Gold, and Silver) and an Associate membership level for non-profit organizations. The legal entity for LFN is The Linux Foundation, and membership in The Linux Foundation is required in order to become a member of LFN.

LFN currently supports six technical projects, each of which is organized as a separate series of LF Projects, LLC, as follows:

  • FD.IO Project a Series of LF Projects, LLC
  • ONAP Project a Series of LF Projects, LLC
  • OPNFV Project a Series of LF Projects, LLC
  • PNDA Project a Series of LF Projects, LLC
  • Streaming Networks Analytics System a Series of LF Projects, LLC
  • OpenDaylight Project a Series of LF Projects, LLC
  • Tungsten Fabric Project a Series of LF Projects, LLC

Each supported project is responsible for its own technical oversight, and the TAC fulfills a liaison role as opposed to a prescriptive role. Participation in the supported technical projects is open to anyone, subject to compliance with the technical charters of the projects.

For more information on the technical projects, please see the website for each such project. For more information on LFN, please see the LFN FAQ.
