The Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) is a platform for orchestration, management, and automation of network and edge computing services.

ONAP enables administrators to rapidly automate new services and support complete life cycle management.

“By unifying the resources of open source members, ONAP enables the acceleration of the development of a vibrant ecosystem around a globally shared architecture and the implementation of network automation faster than any product could on its own,” the project’s documentation states. 

The latest release of ONAP is Honolulu, which added significant functionality for end-to-end 5G network slicing. Other new additions to ONAP Honolulu include more cloud native functionality, robust ORAN integration, and expanded modularity. 

ONAP is a Linux Foundation project and is also a founding member of LF Networking.
