OPNFV is a carrier-grade, integrated, open source reference platform for NFV

1. Introducing Open Platform for NFV Please direct any questions or comments to info@opnfv.org 1

2. Communications Networks Evolving • Growth of data traversing the network • Cloud computing changing the way applications are delivered and consumed • Operators are under pressure to meet demands for services from consumers, enterprises and the Internet of Things • Industry shift towards Software-Defined Networking and Network Functions Virtualization 10/23/14 OPNFV Introduction 2

3. Industry Needs • Flexibility, efficiency, new service offerings • Cloud-based delivery models • Dynamic bandwidth allocation • Common standards for core network elements • Integration of existing open source NFV building blocks • Ecosystem collaboration, coordination and testing • Carrier-grade service performance 10/23/14 OPNFV Introduction 3

4. OPNFV is a carrier-grade, integrated, open source reference platform for NFV 10/23/14 OPNFV Introduction 4

5. OPNFV Project Goals • Develop an integrated and tested open source platform that can be used to build NFV functionality, accelerating the introduction of new products and services • Include participation of leading end users to validate OPNFV meets the needs of user community • Contribute to and participate in relevant open source projects that will be leveraged in the OPNFV platform; ensure consistency, performance and interoperability among open source components • Establish an ecosystem for NFV solutions based on open standards and software • Promote OPNFV as the preferred open reference platform 10/23/14 OPNFV Introduction 5

6. OPNFV Initial Scope To provide NFV Infrastructure (NFVI), Virtualized Infrastructure Management (VIM), and APIs to other NFV elements, which together form the basic infrastructure required for Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs) and Management and Network Orchestration (MANO) components. 10/23/14 OPNFV Introduction 6

7. OPNFV Architecture Framework 10/23/14 OPNFV Introduction 7

8. Why Open Source? • The promise of open source is better quality, higher reliability, more flexibility, lower cost and the opportunity to drive open standards. • Faster, lower cost and higher quality development through sharing of resources via collaboration. • Community decisions about new features and roadmaps. • A common environment for uses and App developers. • Ability to focus resources on differentiating development. Bottom Line: The open source model significantly accelerates consensus, delivering high performing, peer-reviewed 10/23/14 code that forms a basis for an OPNFV Introduction 8 ecosystem of solutions.

9. Upstream OSS Projects Integration • Work directly with upstream standards bodies (ETSI and others) • Work directly with upstream open source projects (OpenDaylight, OpenStack, KVM and Xen, and many others) • Leverage existing codebases • Integrate existing open source components • Identify gaps to create new code • Provide a point of integration, testing and performance optimization 10/23/14 Result: Best reference platform for carrier-grade NFV OPNFV Introduction 9 implementations

10. Ecosystem • IT solutions providers • Network solutions providers • End user network operator • Enterprise IT including financial services • Cloud services providers 10/23/14 OPNFV Introduction 10

12. What Members Are Saying • “OPNFV is a unique organization that provides an ecosystem for users to work directly with the Open Source development community for an NFV platform” –AT&T • “We expect OPNFV to lead the open source development of next generation core network elements and application.” –China Mobile • “It’s important to Vodafone to advance the state-of-the-art of telecommunications networks. OPNFV gives us a vehicle to do just that.” –Vodafone • “The time is right for OPNFV, as it brings the industry together to build a common platform to drive consistency and adoption.” -Juniper Networks • “There are important standards in place for SDN and NFV, as well as a variety of open source components. OPNFV will bring these elements together. -Ericsson 10/23/14 OPNFV Introduction 12

13. How It Works • A Business (Board) and Technical (TSC) governance structure separates business decisions from meritocratic, technical decisions Board sets business direction and scope for the Project 10/23/14 TSC sets technical direction for the overall Project Financial oversight Policy oversight Oversight of all marketing: web, press/analysts, collateral, etc. Projects drive code development, testing, integration and reference platform releases OPNFV Introduction 13

14. Why Join? • Showcase your support for a community-driven, open source controller platform • Accelerate the development of technology available to users • Enable widespread adoption of Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) • Create an open platform which supports NFV and is carrier grade (meets performance, scale & reliability requirements). – Take advantage of the innovation in the open source community – Coordinate upstream contributions to address gaps for supporting NFV, in current open source projects – Integrate open source components and develop glue-code to create an E2E solution. • Drive for faster traction and lower development cost on realizing a carrier grade NFV open platform – Take advantage of the resource multiplier effect due to multiple company support – Improve speed of development and 10/23/14 OPNFV Introduction breadth of features 14
