The Linux Foundation announced ONAP certification yesterday to help close the human talent gap that is emerging with the growth of network automation, 5G, and edge computing. As per the Linux Foundation, "COP [Certified ONAP Professional] is a three-hour, performance-based certification exam that provides assurance that a certificant has the ability to onboard Virtual Network Functions (VNFs), design and deploy network services, and configure VNFs. "
This is a great step forward to help create a pool of experts with baseline understanding of ONAP and the underlying concepts of xNF onboarding, service design, service orchestration, xNF lifecycle management, and closed control loop automation.
