    • Source code can be found at: https://github.com/XGVela/cloud-native-OAM
  • Impelmented helms charts for all the above functions. Files can be found at: https://github.com/XGVela/cloud-native-OAM-builder

Delivered Documentations:


  • Successful integration among cloud native OAM functions, Inspur's container platform and CMCC's container platform on Big Cloud. Both of the container platform are using K8S for orchestration.
  • Successful integration among cloud native OAM and network function simulator, which is developed to mimic actions of real network functions.

Tests covered:

As there is no CI/CD pipelines, tests on delivered cloud native OAM functions have been completed in private environment. Quality of delivered codes, helm charts and documentations support users to deploy and use cloud native OAM. Auto testing are scheduled in next release.



Summit presentation:

Summary of outstanding accomplishment
  • Functional code delivery. Cloud native OAM supports to provide operation and management functions outside NF, which can help to relief NF developers from putting too much effort on fcaps related developement. Besides, as cloud native OAM is the most commonly functions that can be shared among NFs, providing them through PaaS platform indicates NF are using more capabilities on cloud, which is a good trend for telcos to be more cloud native.
  • Cloud native OAM has been integrated with and verified on two different container environments. This on some degree reflects the portablity of codes.

Plans for Next Release
  • More telco PaaS functional features delivery
  • Integration among cloud native OAM, CNF (e.g. Free 5GC), other PaaS platform (OKD), and ONAP.
  • Bug fix and doc optimize
  • Update cloud native OAM deployment method

Release management accomplishment:

  • Completed a list of PaaS capability candidates (Projects), which gives a clearer clue on how to develope Telco PaaS and helps to narrow down the community scope.
  • Community run a complete release for the first time. Although the process may not be professional, but it's still a huge accomplishment. For next release, the team will try to get some trainning on release management, and keep optimizing the process.
  • Established release processes by writing a guide Release Process and having Release 11.2022 Schedule.
  • Established project management processes by writing guide on Project Operations and Procedures and Project Proposals procedures.
