06 June 2017Ottawa, Canada – CENX, a global leader in software solutions for the telecom industry, announces that it has joined the European Telecommunications Standard Institute’s (ETSI) Open Source MANO (OSM) community.

ETSI produces globally-applicable standards for Information and Communications Technologies (ICT), including fixed, mobile, radio, converged, broadcast and Internet technologies. Its standards enable the technologies on which business and society relies. OSM is an ETSI-hosted project to develop an Open Source NFV Management and Orchestration (MANO) software stack for NFV. CENX aims to contribute its NFV assurance insight to the OSM community.

“We’re very excited to join ETSI’s OSM program,” states Andrew McDonald, SVP of Core Products at CENX. “Working with ETSI will allow us to help service providers to further streamline their VNF onboarding processes. CENX aims to augment the TOSCA template used by ETSI to specify all aspects of the NFV lifecycle, which will ultimately help to provide an enriching customer experience, increase automation levels and reduce integration costs.”

TOSCA (Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications) aims to standardize the descriptions of software applications and the requirements that allow them to run properly via cloud infrastructure. CENX sees the TOSCA initiative as a key component of the service provider transition to closed-loop automation.
