Transforming Network Infrastructure: ONAP Goes to Amsterdam

By In The News

The Open Network Automation Platform Project has come out with its first deliverable since it was created by the merger of ECOMP and the Open Orchestrator Project, or OPEN-O. That deliverable is a platform called Amsterdam that provides a unified architecture for service automation and orchestration.

“Amsterdam represents significant progress for both the ONAP community and the greater open source networking ecosystem at large,” said Arpit Joshipura, general manager for networking and orchestration at The Linux Foundation, the parent organization of ONAP. “By bringing together member resources, Amsterdam is the first step toward realization of a globally shared architecture and implementation for network automation, based on open source and open standards. It’s exciting to see a new era of industry collaboration and architectural convergence – via a healthy, rapidly diversifying ecosystem – begin to take shape with the release of ONAP Amsterdam.”
