[Beijing, China, June 16, 2017] Huawei won eight awards including Super Meet-up Organizers, Builders of Working Groups, and Community Support/Leadership at the third Open Platform for Network Function Virtualization (OPNFV) community summit, which was held in Beijing from June 12 to 15. At the summit, Huawei delivered keynote speeches and had in-depth discussions with industry partners about how the OPNFV community helps carriers accelerate NFV deployment for commercial use.
Forrest Lee, Director of Huawei's OPNFV Open Source Development Team, delivered the keynote speech "OPNFV and HUAWEI, Accelerating the Maturity and Adoption of NFV". Lee highlighted the unique role OPNFV has played in the NFV ecosystem and illustrated how Compliance and Verification Programs (CVP) help carriers guarantee devices can interconnect on any commercial-use NFV network. In addition, he described how continuous integration (CI) and continuous deployment (CD) systems help with rolling out services efficiently, and thereby shortening TTM.
"The way in which telecom cloud networks are constructed is changing from device-centered to service- and experience-oriented," said Lee. "Huawei is dedicated to constructing elastic, robust, and agile telecom networks as the leader in software architecture design, performance improvements, and automated O&M. We will help carriers improve resource utilization, ensure quality subscriber experience, and boost service innovation."
Huawei also organized discussions on NFV components, continuous integration and delivery, performance testing, certification, infrastructure performance modeling, and showcased solutions such as Cloud Native based CloudIMS and CloudEPC.
Huawei, a pioneer in the NFV industry, has recognized the value of open source platforms, and is pushing forward with NFV development to become an even more active player in many open source communities. In addition to OPNFV, Huawei is a platinum member of the Linux Foundation, and OpenStack and ONAP communities, as well as a gold member of CloudFoundry, and a co-founder of ONOS.
Huawei looks forward to continually partnering with industry leaders to create an open, agile, and structurally sound NFV ecosystem.
