OPI Project @ ONE Summit

LF Networking has the largest set of open source networking projects in the world formed by a broad industry coalition with the goal of fostering a commercial-ready networking ecosystem that embraces open, emerging and evolving technologies. On April 29-May 1, LFN brought peers, thought leaders and members of the ecosystem together at ONE Summit in San Jose for keynotes, forums, and sessions to work on pushing the industry forward through open source collaboration.

ONE Summit 2024 gathered 403 attendees from 202 organizations in 32 countries around the globe, with 78% hailing from North America. The event featured 70+ talks including keynotes, co-located events, breakout sessions, and lightning talks, ONE Summit delivered content across 4 tracks: The Future of Open Innovation, AI Implementation Across Telecom, Cloud, Enterprise, and Edge, Securing and Automating the Open End-to-End Network, Deployment Use Stories: Where Slides Meet the Real World.

OPI Project kicked off the conference with an announcement about the new resource lab that tests and explores a common provisioning and lifecycle management framework. The new lab will be initially used for CI/CD operations as the project builds and tests OPI-related code. The Lab will also help project members create demos and proofs of concept as new use cases are explored. Arpit Joshipura, General Manager of Networking, Edge and IoT, also mentioned the news in his keynote presentation on Day 1. 

As a Bronze sponsor of the event, OPI Project had a booth in the Sponsorship Showcase and representatives from F5, Dell, Keysight Technologies, NVIDIA and more were on-site to walk through demos and answer questions. The demos shown focused on initial provisioning, lifecycle management, and application deployment on DPU/IPUs. Watch videos of some of the demos here.
