OPNFV is a vibrant and diverse community comprising an overlapping tapestry of developers, members, end users, upstream communities, commercial suppliers, and academia–all collaborating to make NFV a reality.

End Users

Open source collaboration means working side-by-side with end users to ensure applicability to real-world networks and challenges. Many of the principal contributors to OPNFV are from companies running large scale networks themselves.


Through automated deployment tools, robust Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment capabilities, and global test infrastructure, OPNFV enables developer collaboration and rapid iteration across the cloud, SDN, and cloud ecosystems.
