LF Networking Projects

LF Networking (LFN) provides the largest set of open source networking projects via a broad industry coalition that comprise the open networking stack. The projects within LF Networking consolidate under a single umbrella with common governance to simplify engagement for members, enhance operational excellence, integrate components and increase interoperability across the stack, and foster a commercially-ready ecosystem.

Our Projects


Anuket delivers a common model, standardized reference infrastructure specifications, and conformance and performance frameworks for virtualized and cloud native network functions, enabling faster, more robust onboarding into production, reducing costs and accelerating communications digital transformations.


The mission of the Project is to create a universal control plane that helps organizations to securely connect and deploy workloads across public clouds, private clouds and edge locations, with end-to-end inter-application communication enabled.

An Open Source Terabit Software Dataplane

The world moves at light speed. Make sure your packet traffic keeps up.

The world moves at light speed. Make sure your packet traffic keeps up. Fast Data Project’s VPP enriches data plane leadership and deployment efficiency.


At L3AF, our vision is to create a marketplace for eBPF programs (Kernel Functions), where users and developers can share their own signed kernel functions and download kernel functions from others.



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.


A bold collaborative open source initiative to bring together a critical mass of infrastructure management and orchestration stakeholders to define and execute the collaborative work in several areas.


ONAP is a comprehensive platform for orchestration, management, and automation of network and edge computing services for network operators, cloud providers, and enterprises.


OpenDaylight (ODL) is a modular open platform for customizing and automating networks of any size and scale.

Tungsten Fabric

Solve your tooling complexity and overload with the simplicity of only one networking and security tool.


An open source cloud native PaaS for applications and telco network functions, which is to enable new services and help mobile operators to seize the business opportunity from vertical industries in the 5G era.
