Linux Foundation launches Open Platform for NFV Project

by | Oct 2, 2014

Linux Foundation is moving forward in the telecommunications sector. This week they have announced the birth of an Open Source platform that aims to speed up the introduction of new products and services thanks to Network Functions Virtualization (NFV). This project is called Open Platform for NFV (OPNFV) and it is supported by vendors and telecom operators, such as AT&T, Red Hat, HP, Cisco or Citrix.

This new initiative will accelerate the delivery of cloud-based models to operators, enable interoperability and will accelerate standards through an Open Source reference platform.

It is a new investment in the future that will take advantage of OpenDayLight knowledge, a project to develop an Open Source controller for Software Defined Networks (SDN).
