Multiple open source communities and organizations collaborate to bring mobile services to the edge

At Open Networking Summit Europe, Oct 25-27 2018 in Amsterdam, a team made up of 30 volunteers from 15 organizations from the LF Networking project communities unveiled the Virtual Central Office 2.0 proof of concept in a live keynote demonstration. The demo was the next evolution of the Virtual Central Office Demo 1.0 shown in Beijing during the 2017 OPNFV Summit that highlighted residential and enterprise services — this time highlighting the ability to deliver mobile services based on 5G network infrastructure. The demo was then shown again the following week at the Open Compute Project Regional Summit, Oct 1-2, also in Amsterdam.

In this solution brief, discover how four open source communities came together to develop a proof of concept based on one of the industries most pressing use cases and how this approach can help carriers with their VCO strategies.
