ETSI Open Source MANO announces Release THREE

Sophia Antipolis, 14 November 2017

Expedites adoption in production environments

OSMETSI Open Source MANO group (ETSI OSM) announces finalization of OSM Release THREE, keeping the pace of a release every 6 months.

This release includes a large set of new capabilities as well as numerous enhancements in terms of scalability, performance, resiliency, security and user experience that facilitate its adoption in production environments.

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” declares Francisco-Javier Ramón, chairman of ETSI OSM group.

OSM Release THREE features

With a new role-based access control, OSM Release THREE enables users from different service providers to access the OSM system with the appropriate set of privileges. It facilitates the adoption of complex operation workflows without compromising the security of the network or its operations.

Release THREE also includes the support of projects. These projects are shared spaces where users can access and operate a given set of Network Services (NS) and Virtual Network Functions (VNF), enabling collaborative work with orchestration.

The New Service Assurance and Monitoring capabilities allow the orchestrator to act on events and metrics gathered from VNFs and infrastructures, in a technology-agnostic manner. Other features such as anti-affinity rules as well as explicit port ordering and device role tagging facilitate VNF deployments, availability and resiliency.

A comprehensive description of the new features that come with OSM Release THREE can be found in the new white paper from our OSM Community.
