Project Name:

  • Proposed name for the project: Models
  • Proposed name for the repository: models

Project description:

  • This project will address various goals for promoting availability and convergence of information and/or data models related to NFV service/VNF management, as being defined in standards (SDOs) and as developed in open source projects.


  • Activities will include:
    • establishing agile lines of communication (e.g. JIRA) with SDO members so that OPNFV and SDOs can set goals, share progress on various model-related issues, and provide feedback on implementation/test experience
    • building collections (by reference where possible) of standard models that can be roadmapped for analysis and verification thru use case testing on the OPNFV platform
    • work with various OPNFV projects (e.g. Movie, Parser, Promise, Copper, SFC, etc) to coordinate on models proposed for testing, and to feedback results to the SDOs
    • leverage/develop tools and processes for comparative analysis of standardized models and defacto models derived from open source documentation or code, and promote actions for key issues arising from the analysis
    • coordinate test/demo events focused on publicizing work of the project and enhancing collaboration with upstream SDO / open source project members

Further ideas/details for the proposed project are being collected on an etherpad page.


  • Model use case tests will be coordinated with other OPNFV projects or directly by the models project as needed
  • Any model analysis tools developed will be included in the CI pipeline and supported by tests


  • A running dashboard will be maintained covering
    • References to sources of models
    • Models that have been collected and planned for analysis/testing on the OPNFV platform
    • Models that have been successfully tested, and the state of any issues related to them
    • Tools and processes for model derivation and comparative analysis
