Welcome to the OPNFV and CNTT meld zone! 

"My mind to your mind....your thoughts to my thoughts"


Melding is the name of the game - let's combine two into something new!

This workspace is designed for collaboration between OPNFV and CNTT to create a merged organization by the end of 2020. You'll find the list of task forces and work items here. Please feel free to join any of the task forces by signing up on the relevant pages and getting involved.

Our goal is to create a combined organization that 

  • Enables Operators and Suppliers have a voice in the common Cloud platform design
  • Ensures alignment between Architecture/requirements work and Engineering work
  • Creates a sustainable resource model for organization's work
  • Facilitates Broad influence with other industry groups
  • Enables broad adoption and deployment
