User Guide & Configuration Guide


One of OPNFV’s project goals is to reduce time to integrate and deploy NFV infrastructure and onboard VNF/CNFs for those who supply components and those who operationalize these platforms. The OPNFV community does this by implementing, testing and deploying tools for conformance and performance of NFV infrastructure, aligned with industry reference architectures. This document provides guidance and instructions for using platform features designed to support the tools that are made available in the OPNFV Jerma release.

This document is not intended to replace or replicate documentation from other upstream open source projects such as KVM, OpenDaylight, OpenStack, etc., but to highlight the features and capabilities delivered through the OPNFV project.


OPNFV provides a infrastructure deployment options, which are able to be installed to host virtualised network functions (VNFs). This document intends to help users of the platform leverage the features and capabilities delivered by OPNFV.
