February 23, 2016 – Benu Networks Joins 22 Service Providers and Solutions Vendors to Create a Global Open Source MANO Community

Boston, February 23, 2016- Benu Networks has join the Open Source MANO (OSM) Community that is focused on delivering an open source Management and Orchestration (MANO) stack aligned with ETSI NFV Information Models. OSM has been created under the umbrella of ETSI and it is an operator-led community to meet the requirements of production NFV networks.

“Benu Networks is excited to be an initial member of the OSM”, Rajat Ghai, CTO Benu Networks. “We believe that OSM will accelerate the adoption of Benu’s vCPE home and business solutions by Service Providers since it creates an open and standards based service orchestration environment.”

Founding members of OSM include Telefónica, BT, Canonical, Intel, Mirantis, RIFT.io, Telekom Austria Group, and Telenor, along with other initial participants such as Benu Networks, Brocade, Comptel, Dell, Indra, Korea Telecom, Metaswitch, RADWare, Red Hat, and Sandvine, SK Telecom, Sprint, Telmex, xFlow and 6WIND. More information can be found in the ETSI portal page for OSM: http://osm.etsi.org.

OSM’s charter consists of working with the community to deliver a production-quality open source MANO stack under Apache Public License 2.0. The initial OSM code base is already capable of orchestrating complex NFV use cases using vendor-neutral Information Models capable of capturing all the significant features of the E2E service and the requirements of the individual components (Virtual Network Functions — VNFs).

The OSM project ignition demonstration available in the Intel booth Hall 3, 3D30 at MWC2016 showcases the feasibility of the first selection of operator use cases. The goal of the demo is to demonstrate resource orchestration (RO) through several VNF deployments, at different sites and with different VIMs and EPA support.
