ONAP (Open Network Automation Platform)
ONAP (Open Network Automation Platform) is the merger of the Open Source ECOMP and OPEN-O by the Linux Foundation. Alignment of the two projects, which occurred in early 2017, creates a harmonized and comprehensive framework for real-time, policy-driven software automation of virtual network functions that will enable software, network, IT and cloud providers and developers to rapidly create new services. By consolidating member resources, ONAP is well positioned to deliver a unified architecture and implementation, with an open standards upstream focus, faster than any one project could on its own.
