Open Source Software has undoubtedly enabled the SDN and NFV transformation. The Controller projects lead the way, including OpenDaylight, ONOS, and Ryu, among others. Benefits of open source for both individuals and their organizations are well documented, including collective innovation, R&D efficiency, individual recognition, and the opportunity to contribute to the community. 

OPNFV established an open reference platform for NFV; the initial releases are validating open source building blocks that make up the NFV Infrastructure (NFVI). As a result, OPNFV expanded its charter to address NFV Management and Orchestration (MANO), which serves as the boundary between services and the network. 

Not surprisingly, the industry responded with a new series of open source orchestration projects. In this presentation we examine a new Linux Foundation Collaborative Project- OPEN-O- for end-to-end service orchestration over NFV Infrastructure, as well as SDN and legacy networks. After sharing the vision and target use cases, we will examine the functional architecture and technology approach, and provide an update on the project.
