The launch of SDG OpenSlice marks a significant milestone for ETSI and the wider telecommunications industry. Collaboration among software development and standardization groups will foster the early validation of latest technologies and accelerate the time to market of next-generation networks.
In a world where 5G is maturing and industries crave innovative solutions, network slicing emerges as a key mechanism, enabling flexible and cost-efficient services for diverse verticals. Openslice, an open-source OSS, delivers Network Slice as a Service (NSaaS), empowering customers to shape and offer slices as desired. Together with ETSI initiatives like OSM and TeraFlowSDN, Openslice paves the way for modern telco-cloud requirements, seamless integration, reference implementations for 6G, fruitful collaboration, and invaluable feedback to standardization groups.
OpenSlice is key to deliver Network Slice as a Service in testbeds such as GAIA, in order to facilitate the provisioning of slices for experimentation to third parties and allow testing of different use cases.
SDG OSL strengthens the Management and Orchestration software components portfolio at ETSI. The OpenSlice community will be joining forces with TeraFlowSDN and Open Source MANO to deliver open source for smart networks and services.
With OpenSlice we take another step in the Network Transformation journey we started some time ago, complementing our open-source toolset with powerful, cloud-native service orchestration capabilities, and allowing us to bridge gaps in the application of standards to network automation.
OpenSlice fills an important gap as a standards aligned open Source Operation Support System (OSS). With OpenSlice you are able to experiment with slicing today, through an intuitive web based interface, that can orchestrate complex slicing use-cases.
