The Aarna OVP-in- a-Box-Offering
According to the lfnetworking.org, "the OPNFV Verification Program (OVP) is an open source, community-led compliance and verification program to demonstrate the readiness and availability of commercial NFV products and services, including NFVI and VNFs, using OPNFV and ONAP components".
The Aarna OVP-in-a-Box offering is a cloud hosted ONAP environment along with structured hands-on training and support to help the vendor familiarize themselves with the process of running OVP tests.
VNF vendors that desire to obtain an OVP badge need to run static compliance tests on their VNF followed by validation tests against an actual ONAP instance. This can present roadblocks for VNF vendors that do not know how to install ONAP or to run OVP tests.
