The OPNFV Verification Program (OVP) is an open source, community-led compliance and verification program to demonstrate the readiness and availability of commercial NFV products and services using OPNFV and ONAP components.

Recognizing the need for neutral, open source, community-driven verification initiatives for NFV deployments are now critical to growing the marketplace for NFV products and services in the industry, OVP was launched in early 2018 with a focus on commercial NFVI/VIM product offerings. Around that same time, ONAP began activities in its Beijing and Casablanca releases to focus on compliance activities for VNF vendors.

In April 2019, we launched an expanded OVP with that includes VNF verification through publicly-available VNF compliance test tooling based on requirements developed within the ONAP community. OPNFV is a systems integration and testing project and is well suited to expand this integrator role to VNF testing. Also new is the availability of a Verified Labs Program for third-party testing.
