The fourth ONAP DDF and sixth OPNFV Plugfest were co-located at the Nokia facility in Nozay, France. The event spanned four days from January 8-11, 2019.
The focus of this joint event was to bring commercial vendors and open source community members together to plan the upcoming ONAP Dublin release, perform testing and integration of the OPNFV Gambia release, and foster collaboration between the ONAP and OPNFV communities. The combined event was attended by 213 individuals from 55 organizations that included 11 end-users and 11 research and nonprofit organizations.
An important outcome of the joint event was the collaboration between the OPNFV and ONAP communities and there was interest in both communities to come together and leverage each other’s work. Joint activities ranged from extending the OPNFV Verified Program (OVP) to verify ONAP VNF compliance; using OPNFV test tools such as Functest, Yardstick, and Dovetail for ONAP; adopting the OPNFV CI pipeline for ONAP; and collaborating around cloud native and edge computing technologies.
