|Manoop as a Portal Project PTL supported other ONAP PTLs regarding the Portal's SDK. Mostly, the SDK support is provided to VID, Policy, AAI, SDC, MSB and CLI. Besides SDK support, he provided help for the pairwise integration with all the on-boarded applications on Portal which ensure the success of end to end integration test for ONAP Beijing release. He coordinated all the efforts required to integrate Portal's SDK with AAF and MUSIC, so that the VID, Policy and AAI applications using SDK can take advantage of the access management, resiliency and scalability features. He also collaborated with OOM team to resolve the deployment and ONAP access issues for a general ONAP user. In support of these activities he performed code reviews under MUSIC and OOM repos. To me he certainly represents the core value of what an open community should be|
|Marco was leading and performing both change management and scale out testing in parallel those last few months. Previously he was ensuring that the ONAP deployment (Heat) was stable so the different project teams could perform their pair-wise testing activities. He was one of our ONAP champions at the ONS North America event, performing live demos, demonstrating ONAP capabilities. Eager to help anybody, his availability and his team spirit have been unwavering.|
|Marcus spearheaded the HPA functional requirement testing efforts and was critical to getting HPA functional requirement delivered in the Beijing Release. Marcus spent endless hours and several sleepless nights testing and debugging HPA functionality across five separate ONAP projects. In order to get HPA tested, Marcus first had to ensure that the affected projects were working correctly in general. This entailed endless permutations of pairwise/integration testing and debugging across SO, Policy, AAI and Multi-Cloud projects. Marcus also stepped up and helped test a brand new ONAP project ‚Äì OOF ‚Äì that was key to making HPA real. If it were not for Marcus‚Äôs efforts, we would not have OOF and HPA as part of the Beijing release.|
|Besides being the lead of ONAP Logging project, Michael is also a true evangelist of DevOps, ONAP deployment on Kubernetes and as cloud native. Michael is the individual who provided much assistance to many, many others, in the form of education, guidance, bug fixes. Michael's behavior help to promote cooperation between members of other projects: (Portal, OOM, Integration and a dozen more) is exemplary.|
|During the Beijing release OOM introduced new Helm models of every ONAP component comprising thousands of files. Not only did Mike define the generic model used for all of the ONAP components but he held multiple training sessions for the community and countless numbers of project-to-project eduction and debugging sessions to ensure that the Helm models faithfully represented the intentions of the project teams. In many cases Mike created the models for the project teams. In other cases Mike guided the teams and then helped debug the Helm models - often on Kubernetes systems that he created for the teams to use. During all of this Mike remained helpful and cheerful even under the stress of overwhelming number of requests well past project deadlines. During the integration phase Mike attended a large number of Integration team sessions and was always available on RocketChat to help. Mike is a shining example of how an open-source community can come together across company and geographic boundaries to achieve a common goal.|
|Pam has consistently worked to expand communications among Project teams. In addition, Pam regularly vbolunteers to tak on new tasks which benefit the community in general, provides well thought out input during ONAP calls whether it is on PTL or TSC meetings and shares her thoughts on process improvements and lessons learned in a positive and constructive way.|
|Rich has provided unparalleled Documentation support from the very beginning of ONAP (even pre-Amsterdam). Though much of his work has been ‚behind the scenes, Rich has been instrumental in insuring the success of ONAP through his work in developing, testing and implementing the tool chain and technical support needed to ensure accurate documentation. Among his many contributions during Beijing:|
Troubleshooting a myriad of project level issues and questions related to the wiki, readthedocs, tool chain, etc.
Analyzing terminology errors and developing strategy for project teams to detect and correct without impacting code development or releases

(alphabetically by project)
|Close collaboration, good planning, and execution enabled the APPC team to overcome major obstacles and deliver on their commitments.|
|Integration||The Integration Team has been playing a critical and challenging role for the successful release of ONAP Beijing. Effectively they are the last runner in the release relay race and almost always trying to make up time when other trams miss their schedules. They have been working closely with almost all other projects on maintaining and coordinating of project pair-wise testing, lab resources and environment, overcoming a number of challenges through the release: network connectivity issues, slowness of Jenkins, unstable hardware environment, etc. to make sure the success ONAP release as a whole. At Beijing release, they accomplished several major achievements:|
|Moving from "experimental" to a core component of ONAP, the OOM project has been instrumental for the Beijing Release becoming one of the cornerstones regarding S3P requirements (resiliency). In true agile fashion, the OOM team delivered a huge number of stories, tasks and bug fixes (http://onap.readthedocs.io/en/latest/submodules/oom.git/docs/release-notes.html), to deliver ONAP on Kubernetes. All while providing almost daily education and support to the development and integration teams, to meet S3P goals for the Beijing release. Issues worked through included a Kubernetes and Helm version change, a radical new way of deploying ONAP using a helm chart umbrella chart providing the ability to upgrade, rollback, dynamically change configuration. The project was on time, had usable documentation on RTD, the code reviews process was thorough yet not to restrictive (Design patterns and quality were enforced by the committers). The support provided to the other projects during last minute patches and bugs (AAF, OOF, NBI, MUSIC etc) to meet deadlines in my opinion was above and beyond the norm. In many instances, the OOM team cherry picked patches from other teams and addresses issues themselves in the interest of time.|
|Portal Platform||The team has collaborated with AAF, OOM and MUSIC teams to try new integration aspects to pave the path for the other projects. The Portal Platform Project team has met all the release milestones on time and always reviewed with the release manager, architecture and security committees ahead of time to save from the last minute changes.|
|CLAMP||The CLAMP Team served as a model for other projects. They were the pilot team to assess the CII Badging, providing their feedback to the security sub-committee but also providing guidelines to the other project teams concerning the CII form. They were helping several project teams concerning their license and security issues. They were reviewing and were updating the Helm Charts used by OOM for the Music and the OPTF projects. They have also implemented a new capability, the CLAMP Dashboard - with one or two clicks, Operators should be able to get the most critical KPIs and reports of Running Control Loops. They met all the milestone criteria in a timely manner. Ron Shacham, one of the CLAMP team members, drove all the control loop testing on the different use cases, building effective partnership with different project teams. Finally they performed full ONAP OOM Deployment (except VF-C, Usecase UI) based on the Beijing release note, providing feedback and improvement suggestion to the ONAP Community.|
|VF-C||VF-C is the main part of the integration between the former OpenECOMP and OPEN-O efforts. VF-C brings the ETSI NFVO and GVNFM architecture/features into ONAP with high-quality code, which serves to make ONAP a more logical and acceptable choice for CSP. In order to better integrate with other ONAP projects, VF-C completed integration and testing with 10 projects, delivering 17th components. All the milestones completed on time. VF-C aligned R2 unified data model and as the key component, made outstanding contributions to support integration testing.|
|VNFSDK||When it comes to achievement in hitting the milestones and a role model for other to get inspiration from, without a doubt VNFSDK is the exemplary project that deserves the award in this category. From a process perspective, the VNFSDK project team has been responding ahead of time and without needing to be asked twice for any items. More importantly, the VNFSDK project team constantly monitored what really mattered to make an Agile Delivery: CSIT, vulnerability fixing, Sanity Check, Code Coverage and the whole enchilada that show what a great project team they are. Furthermore, from a functionality perspective, the team delivered the significant contribution in the Beijing Release to certify VNFs in the whole ONAP ecosystem, thus is helping operators with their time to market strategy.|
Project Innovation Award
Presented to the Project which delivered a new compelling feature or capability in ONAP (not originally delivered in Amsterdam, Open-O or Ecomp) that has significantly impacted ONAP in one or more areas including but not limited to architecture, integration, SDOs or security.
(alphabetically by project)
|Ryan and Scott drove a critical security feature with AAF team to enable securing web based API access via ODL, without need to modify any ODL jars. Through their work, Ryan writing the requirements to AAF team and working on designed and execution, and Scott assisting with the testing, this key security feature would not have been possible. Now API access via ODL APIDOC Explorer is authorized via AAF|
|CLAMP (dashboard)||Service assurance and closed loop monitoring is one of the target goals of ONAP, the Dashboard as part of Beijing is a significant step towards this goal.|
|External API||This project introduces a new component (NBI) to facilitate integration with existing BSS or IT application. It is fully aligned with TMF API and was designed with strong collaboration with MEF. It outlines how it is possible to use ONAP platform using standard API defined by various organizations.|
|Modeling Team||ONAP Modeling Team has made a tremendous contribution to the ONAP project by providing unified Information Model Spec and corresponding Data Model Implementation. They coordinated with multiple standard organizations (ETSI/MEF/IETF/ONF) and published the model that fulfills the requirements from usecases/S3P. All the while they accomplished several major achievements:|
MUSIC is a novel state management service specifically tailored for multi-site geo-distributed replication through flexible, fine-grained consistency with a rich suite of recipes that each ONAP component/microservice can simply configure and use for their state-management needs. MUSIC is currently being used for multi-site state management by the Homing and Allocation Service (HAS) that is part of OOF and the ONAP Portal.
In terms of impact, MUSIC is a fundamental service that helps ONAP components to achieve 5 9s of availability on 3 9s or lower software, by enabling state management across geo-distributed sites in a reliable, scalable, highly available and efficient manner.
|Portal Platform||The Portal Project made innovative contributions to ONAP through seamless integration with MUSIC and AAF which most of the other ONAP projects have not integrated yet. AAF for access managment and MUSIC for resiliency and scalability are integrated into Portal's SDK. Partnering applications like Policy, VID, AAI, SDC can now take advantage of using these features. The SDK framework is designed in such a way that these features are pluggable, meaning the applications can choose to use them or not after upgrading to the latest SDK. This has significantly impacted ONAP under integration area by exposing such features as out-of-box features in SDK.|
|The APPC Team played a leadership role for VNF scale out use case. They have also developed a Self Serve Design approach: Controller Design Tool. This tool supports VNF Self-Service Onboarding for all API actions. The team demo'd to the Integration team first their 72 hour stability test run. They submitted jmeters to deployment project. They were leading with SDNC in the OOM support and Resiliency testing. They delivered ODL in last sprint in spite of getting it in last sprint from CCSDK. Finally they drove the Application Authorization framework project, wrote the story to that project and led the integration activities. Lots of good stuff done by a small project team !|
|VNFSDK - (Dovetail Integration)||In the Beijing release, the VNFSDK team integrated with OPNFV's Dovetail testing framework, which is used for the OPNFV Verified Program. The team demonstrated how we can use VNFSDK validation tools to test VNFs and report results back to LF back-end databases. This project demonstrates a model for cross-community work. It also sets the stage for VNF compliance testing under the LFN umbrella following the Casablanca release.|
Presented to the individual who provided the most support to various Marketing and PR teams, and generated and/or supported development of documentation, videos, tutorials, press/analyst interviews, webinars, etc.

|Chris assists in the ONAP PR and marketing efforts on an almost constant basis, supporting briefings and helping with messaging. In addition to helping ensure that ONAP is always shown in the best light, he also assists on-boarding to new LFN Member companies to help get them up to speed on ONAP.|
|Together as a team, Martial and Christophe represented ONAP in EMEA by participating to the 2018 FOSDEM - Free and open source software developers' European meeting. They have also developed several webinars, videos, tutorials to demonstrate closed loops capabilities and the CLAMP dashboard (With One or Two clicks, Operators should be able to get the most critical KPIs and reports of Running Control Loops).|
|He is very active to promote ONAP within the projet in the marketing committee and during various events (various presentations during ONS Summit). He also proposed the first LFN case study with Orange: https://www.linuxfoundation.org/lfn-resource/case-study-lf-networking-lfn-projects-power-next-generation-orange-networks/.|
|Marco deserves to be recgonoized for representing ONAP so well at the ONS conference in Los Angeles. Marco has a broad understanding of the ONAP platform and helps where ever he can.|
|May has been great about helping to organize the China PR/Marketing working group and in to getting things translated and disseminated in-region. She has also assisted the Modeling team in coordinating events.|
