OpenStack, as the NFVI and VIM, serves as a widely used cloud platform for building telecom and NFV systems.

The software is developed and delivered by a large open source community with a six month release cadence. The latest Ocata version was released the end of February and the next (sixteenth) release Pike is under development, while the community is begins  planning for the following release, Queen, at the Forum at the OpenStack Summit in Boston in May. Throughout all cycles, the contributors work on both adding new features and stabilizing the platform itself.

During this session we will highlight the recently added features and evolution of OpenStack Networking including those in the Neutron service as well as in container networking. You will learn more about the roadmap along with how telecoms, open source projects and vendors can use OpenStack’s programmable infrastructure to advance network virtualization.

Join recent Neutron PTL Armando Migliaccio, OpenStack Foundation’s Ildikó Váncsa, and Paul Carver, AT&T for this detailed roadmap session covering Neutron and its plug-ins and sub-projects, containers for control plane and VNFs, container networking (Kuryr), plans for OpenStack in or working with OPNFV, several MANO projects, and more. AT&T, a leading-edge CSP, will share how they successfully leverage the OpenStack community processes, communications, and development tools to turn requirements into plans on the roadmap.

What will I learn from attending this session?

Hear from this exciting line-up of speakers to learn about the recent and planned features for OpenStack in the networking space. Find out how to keep up-to-date and how to contribute features important to your business to the platform.
