In this panel discussion, we explore a critical aspect of the OPNFV ecosystem: Interoperability. Is it just a dream, or is it something the community can build it around as a differentiating feature of this ecosystem? What are the goals of interoperability, how to balance these goals and what roles different organizations and OPNFV in particular may play? Panelists from open source communities, standard organizations, service operators, software developers, and conformance and certification specialists come together to discuss how to best achieve interoperability.
