SAN FRANCISCO – The Linux Foundation, the nonprofit organization focused on fostering innovation through open source, today announced that its Project Nephio, an open source initiative of partners across the telecommunications industry working towards true cloud-native automation, has joined the LF Networking (LFN) project umbrella. Under the auspices of the Linux Foundation's LF Networking – the facilitator of collaboration and operational excellence across open source networking projects – Nephio joins other leading network ecosystem projects and initiatives including ONAP, 5G Super Blue Print, Anuket, L3AF, OpenDaylight, ODIM, and more.

Launched in 2022 in partnership with Google Cloud, Nephio delivers carrier-grade, simple, open, Kubernetes-based cloud native intent automation and common automation templates that materially simplify the deployment and management of multi-vendor cloud infrastructure and network functions across large-scale edge deployments. It brings zero-touch provisioning of cloud infrastructure and network functions, which can offer increased network availability and resiliency while reducing maintenance downtime.

Nephio recently issued its first release, Nephio R1, community further expanded the seed code provided by Google Cloud and introduced features to empower telecoms to efficiently configure and manage cloud infrastructure and network functions using Kubernetes-based intent automation.
