Open Source Services
Strategic adoption of opensource technologies to develop solutions, implement processes, refine workload architecture, and sustain the solutions.
In the pursuit of reducing the time to market, serving customers with exciting services, and staying competitive, businesses are rapidly adopting open source technologies. Open source software is being used extensively by enterprises and technology ISVs, especially in the Telecom industry, to rapidly enable cutting-edge technologies with modern practices followed in the community. These open source projects have influenced software development cycles (design, prototype, development, integration, and testing) and are supporting IT infrastructure to enable agile service deployments.
Calsoft supports customers with strategic adoption of open source technologies to:

Open Source Projects
Our engineers and architects are consistently contributing to OpenStack, which is among the fastest growing opensource communities in the world. Our contributions include the following:
ELIOT is a family of Akraino blueprint, which intends to develop a fully integrated edge network infrastructure and run edge computing applications on lightweight edge nodes. We have made code enhancements through automation scripts and ready-to-use VM images. Using these images, you can try out an edge use case (IoT) in a couple of hours, instead of spending days and weeks over it. Details of our contributions can be found on the Eliot wiki page: https://wiki.akraino.org/display/AK/ELIOT+Installation+Guide
We understand the workings of ONAP and help our customers with real-time, policy-driven service orchestration and automation, along with support for complete life cycle management activities.
- End-to-end orchestration
- End-to-end network slicing management
- 5G service orchestration
- Self-Organizing Network (SON) enhancements
- Fault management/performance management data collection
Our contribution to StarlingX is focused on a significant reduction of the kick-off time for users by introducing a StarlingX-in-a-box VM. It also amalgamates EdgeXFoundry and Kubernetes to handle workloads. We have also contributed to StarlingX Guide for ‘How to get up & running with StarlingX EdgeX’ and documentation for ‘How to Create StarlingX-in-a-box Images’.

We have expertise in leveraging OPNFV to support our customers. Here are a few instances:
We helped automate the validation of a commercial OpenStack solution with OPNFV Functest test framework for different test suites such as Healthcheck, Smoketest, Components, VNFs. We also automated OPNFV Yardstick framework to benchmark the performance of the solution.
We supported a customer with testing a commercial OpenStack solution for VNF deployment and performance benchmark testing. The engagement included testing of VNFs on top of the NFV environment using OPNFV Functest test suites.
‘Medhavi’ is a Sanskrit word, meaning ‘Intelligent’. Medhavi architecture revolves around simple compute workload managers and a clean concept of jobs — how they are placed and scheduled using Open Infrastructure. Some of our contributions include:
- Implement deployment module to install Medhavi using Ansible (#6)
- Added medhaviclient (#8)
- First commit – API and json parser implementation
