The End User Advisory Group (EUAG) is to assist and support NFV communities in its objectives by providing technical and strategic guidance based on challenges of running a real-world network.
The BoD of OPNFV has established the EUAG to assist and support NFV communities in its objectives by providing technical and strategic guidance based on challenges of running a real-world network. ( Subtext: Need more operators involvement and input.. )
The role of the End-User Advisory Group shall be purely advisory in nature, and shall not in any way bind OPNFV, the BoD, any committee of OPNFV, or any member of any of OPNFV (each a “Member”). ( Subtext: We’re sensitive about control. )
Likewise, the End-User Advisory Group members (each an “Advisor”) shall not be bound to any obligations to OPNFV other than abiding by the policies of OPNFV. ( Subtext: We want to be inclusive. )
New members are welcome to join at any time. Please review the End User Advisory Group Charter and the End User Advisory Group Agreement. Questions and signed agreements should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Current member Bios are available here.
