Support & Administration
Welcome to the CNTT Community!!
The following information is provided in this packet to help you get on boarded to CNTT as a contributing member.
- An overview of CNTT
- Legal Terms and Conditions
- How to get engaged and begin contributing (what to do, who to contact, when to meet, tools, etc.)
How long will it take to review the info packet?
The basic on-boarding info packet review will take approximately 1 hours of your time, initially. After that, your consistent engagement and contributions are based on your own commitment.
What will I learn about during on-boarding process?
You’ll get an overview of the scope of CNTT and the underlying technologies, solutions, development status and roadmaps. Additionally, you’ll be made aware of participant responsibilities and legal obligations. Finally, you’ll be provided with support and logistical information you’ll need to get fully engaged with the CNTT developer community.
What help will I get throughout the on-boarding process?
On-boarding members are welcomed to reach out for assistance from those indicated on your "CNTT - Getting Started" email any time during the on-boarding process.
What happens once I get on-boarded?
Once you have reviewed the CNTT on-boarding information and have agreed to the perquisite terms and agreements associated with participating and contributing to the Task Force, and you have completed on-boarding and now it will be your opportunity to join desired work streams.
Global operators and suppliers are joining forces to:
Reduce fragmentation of the NFVI architectures in use by Telco’s in order to accelerate innovation, time to market, & lower VNF | CNF on-boarding costs

The Five Key Components (Value Streams) of the Common NFVI Framework
Global NFVI Lifecycle Framework
Establish an open-sourced end-to-end ecosystem to deliver, maintain & continually improve the cloud infrastructure delivery lifecycle
Reference Model (RM)
Develop a framework to drive continuity of Reference Architectures for NFVI
Reference Architectures (e.g. RA1, RA2, etc.)
Design number of discrete NFVI specifications based on the Reference Model
Reference Implementations (e.g. RI1, RI2, etc.)
Implement & deploy based on the design & configurations of each Reference Architecture
Reference Conformance (e.g. RC1, RC2, etc.)
Deliver community verified NFVI | VNFs | CNFs to the Service Provider Marketplace
Reference Model & Reference Architectures
To understand the work being done to lead the industry to adopt Common NFVI standard Reference Model and Reference Architectures, one needs to first understand the two core tenets underlying all efforts to develop the Reference Model and Reference Architectures. That is…
- VNF abstraction as a goal requires the VNF to not be particularly dependent on NFVI.
- The realization of value delivered into the VNF supply chain is dependent upon the ability of the CNTT community to coalesce on a Common Reference Model and discrete number of Reference Architectures.
Therefore, the entire CNTT approach is rooted in and built upon these tenets as core beliefs.
