ETSI launches latest Open Source Mano release


The latest release, also known as the Open Source Mano Release THREE, is, as its name suggests, the third release which brings component for orchestration in network function virtualization (NFV).

ETSI Open Source Mano group (ETSI OSM) has announced its latest release THREE which includes a large set of new capabilities as well as new enhancements in terms of scalability, performance, resiliency, security and user experience for production environments.

Francisco-Javier Ramón, chairman of ETSI OSM group, said that “OSM Release THREE provides a highly functional and reliable component for NFV Orchestration that enables all industry players to accelerate their deployment plans, with no need to change their target architectures for NFV infrastructure or OSS transformation”.

According to the ETSI OSM group announcement, the OSM Release THREE comes with a new role-based access control which enables users from different services providers to use the OSM system as well as allows adoption of complex operation workflows without having any impact on the security of the network or its operations.

The same release also brings support for projects, which are shared spaces allowing users to access and operate a set of Network Services (NS) and Virtual Network Functions (VNF), allowing collaborative work with orchestration. It also brings New Service Assurance and Monitoring capabilities that allow implementing of a technology-agnostic manner acting on events and metrics gathered from VNFs and other infrastructures.

ETSI OSM group also released a new whitepaper which brings a comprehensive description of the new OSM Release THREE features.

ETSI OSM group was also keen to announce its upcoming 1st OSM Onboarding Hackfest which will be held during ETSI NFV Plugtest scheduled for January 2018.
