ONAP is an open source automation platform for networks covering networks PNFs and VNFs connecting to many virtualization infrastructures. It is setting the industry expectations for an automation platform architecture and provides an opensource platform. ONAP completed its 4th release called Dublin in June. Now we are advancing both ONAPs functionality as well as pivoting our methodology to increase the release cadence. This means we are working with overlapping releases, with the El Elto release focusing on reducing technical debt and the Frankfort release evolving ONAPs automation capabilities. This presentation will summarize the journey, status and upcoming challenges as well as what is expected to come in the future. We will also share our personal reflections on the journey and how the many parties are coming together in a collaborative manner.
