The growing business need to deliver new services quickly and cost-effectively has accelerated the adoption of network functions virtualization (NFV), software-defined networking (SDN) and cloud architectures in carriers and large enterprises alike.
The ONAP project brings together over 100 network and cloud operators and technology providers from around the globe–representing more than 70% of the world’s mobile subscribers–to deliver an open, standards-driven architecture and implementation platform to rapidly instantiate and automate differentiated new services, and support complete lifecycle management.
ONAP uniquely provides a unified operating framework for vendor-agnostic, policy-driven service design, implementation, analytics and lifecycle management for large-scale workloads and services, such as 5G, BBS, CCVPN, vCPE, VoLTE, and more. With ONAP, network operators can synchronously orchestrate physical and virtual network functions. This approach allows operators to leverage existing network investments; at the same time, ONAP’s openness and ubiquitous acceptance in major networks will accelerate the development of a vibrant VNF ecosystem.

ONAP is a founding member of LF Networking (LFN), a consortium that increases collaboration and operational excellence across networking projects. Each technical project retains its technical independence and project roadmaps. Learn more about the ONAP TSC.
