LFN Developer & Testing Forum

This event has passed. View the upcoming Networking & Edge Events.


The LFN Developer & Testing Forum is the primary technical event for the LFN project communities. During these events, 500+ community members converge via sessions, workshops, tutorials, and demos to further project releases; discuss project architecture, direction, and integration points; and further innovate through the open source networking stack. The best way to learn about open source is through participation and newcomers are welcome!

Participating projects

5G Super Blueprint: A community-driven integration and proof of concept involving multiple open source initiatives to show end-to-end use cases demonstrating implementation architectures for end users. The 5G Super Blueprint will cover RAN, Edge, and Core and enable end-to-end open source solutions for enterprises and verticals, large institutional organizations, and more.

Anuket: The Anuket community will be hosting meetings exploring future development topics, discussing operating procedures, and fostering collaboration with other projects.

EMCO: Edge Multi-Cluster Orchestrator (EMCO) is a software framework for intent-based deployment of cloud-native applications to a set of Kubernetes clusters, spanning enterprise data centers, multiple cloud service providers and numerous edge locations. It is architected to be flexible, modular and highly scalable. It is aimed at various verticals, including telecommunication service providers.

EUAG: LFN’s End User Advisory Group (EUAG) serves as the representatives of the business and technical interests of the Telecom companies to the LFN Projects and community. We look forward to using the forum to collaborate with Projects and teams and help provide guidance on where the Telecom Industry is going.

FD.io: FD.io will be discussing CSIT Performance Benchmarking, Anomaly Detection, Results Tracking.

L3AF: At L3AF, our vision is to create a marketplace for eBPF programs (Kernel Functions), where users and developers can share their own signed kernel functions and download kernel functions from others. Our L3AF platform can then be used to orchestrate and compose selected kernel functions from the marketplace to several business needs. In this way, L3AF provides developers with a cloud and vendor-agnostic platform for adding capabilities to an operating system at runtime. We believe that the creation of such a fully integrated software ecosystem around eBPF will unleash its full potential for community adoption.

ODIM: ODIM coordinates with other key SDOs and open source communities, with a focus on automation, simplification, consistency, and interoperability of COTS and OSS infrastructure management solutions resulting in accelerating infrastructure deployments across segments while lowering operational complexity and cost.

ONAP: The ONAP community sessions will highlight recent achievements and milestones, and plan for the next ones. Attendees can expect to learn about new features and capabilities in the Istanbul release, including CNF, enterprise use-cases and many more. Updates will be provided regarding on-going efforts in architecture, modeling, security, and requirements. A big chunk of time will be dedicated to demos showing ONAP addressing real-world use cases. The planning sessions will present a unique opportunity for community members and non-members to provide input that will shape the next releases of ONAP.

OpenDaylight: OpenDaylight will be hosting some “how to get engaged” discussions and introducing new projects that aim to scale OpenDaylight for 2022 and into the future.

Tungsten Fabric: The Tungsten Fabric community will focus on “hands-on” development work for the next release of Tungsten Fabric, refining the Release Process, improving the CI/CD pipeline, and exploring cross-community integration with projects such as ONAP, DPDK, and more.

XGVela: An open source collaborative cloud native Platform as a Service (PaaS) for applications and Telco network functions, which is to enable new services and help mobile operators to seize business opportunities from vertical industries in the 5G era.
