The Guru bar at HP Discover in Barcelona will feature technology, ISVs, and application partners from the AllianceOne OpenNFV Partner Program. The program accelerates partner NFV application revenue and verifies partner applications in the HP OpenNFV environment – an environment that meets the tough standards of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI). The program is a full ecosystem of people, developer resources and technology, ready today for qualified application partners, typically Independent Software Vendors (ISVs). We welcome you to explore the options HPs OpenNFV partner program provides for your transition to Virtualized Network Functions.
