Service provider networks consist of numerous network elements. Due to the progress made by different open source communities, many of these elements are now available as open source software. However, a service provider network is inherently end-to-end. Inter-operability, availability of operation interfaces, event notification capability, etc., are required from each element. In this regard, Open Platform for NFV (OPNFV) plays a unique role in the open source community. It has not only integrated an open source cloud management system, hypervisors, and SDNs to form a complete NFV platform, it now provides options for each of the aforementioned elements.
