SAN FRANCISCO—June 21, 2022—  Project Nephio, an open source initiative of partners across the telecommunications industry working towards true cloud-native automation , today announced rapid community growth and momentum.  

Since launching in April 2022 in partnership with Google Cloud, support has grown with 28 new organizations now part of the project (with over 50 contributing organizations), progress towards Technical Steering Committee (TSC) formation, and an upcoming Nephio Technical Summit, June 22-23, in Sunnyvale, Calif. New supporters include: A5G Networks, Alicon Sweden, Amdocs, ARGELA, CapGemini Technology, CIMI Corporation, Cohere Technologies, Coredge.io, CPQD, Deutsche Telekom, HPE, Keysight Technologies, KT, Kubermatic, Kydea, MantisNet, Matrixx, Minsait, Nabstract, Prodapt, Sandvine, SigScale, Spirent Communications, Telefónica, Tata Elxsi, TechMahidra, Verizon, Vodafone, Wind River, and Wipro. 

Nephio’s goal is to deliver 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. Nephio enables faster onboarding of network functions to production including provisioning of underlying cloud infrastructure with a true cloud native approach, and reduces costs of adoption of cloud and network infrastructure.

“We are pleased to see Nephio experience such rapid growth in such a short time,” said Arpit Joshipura, normal manager, Networking, Edge, and IoT, the Linux Foundation. “This is testament to the market need for open, collaborative initiatives that simplify network functions and cloud infrastructure across edge deployments.”

“We are heartened by the robust engagement from our growing Nephio community, and look forward to continuing to work together to set a new open standard for cloud-native networks to advance automation, network function deployment, and the management of user journeys,” said Gabriele Di Piazza, Senior Director, Telecom Product Management, Google Cloud.

Developer collaboration is underway with the Technical Steering Committee formation in progress. And the Nephio technical community will gather in-person and virtually for the first Nephio Technical Summit, June 22-23 in Sunnyvale, Calif. The goal is to discuss strategy, technology enhancements, roadmap, and operational aspects of cloud native automation in the Telecommunication world.
