ONAP Drops Dublin for 5G Network Automation, Adds Telco Deployments
The Open Networking Automation Platform (ONAP) issued Dublin, its fourth release, and provided new details about how more than 15 major carriers including AT&T, Verizon, Orange, China Mobile, Deutsche Telekom, Vodafone, and Swisscom are using the open source networking stack.
“The key [with the Dublin release] is the commercialization and the fact that we continue to increase deployments with certain carriers and others are in [proof of concept],” said Catherine Lefevre, ONAP technical steering committee chair and assistant vice president at AT&T.
ONAP’s previous release, Casablanca, added a cross-carrier blueprint and a 5G blueprint. Dublin adds a broadband service blueprint as well as new 5G and cross-carrier virtual private network (CCVPN) features.
