About OPNFV and ARM Band

OPNFV is an open source project aiming to provide an integrated and tested reference platform for Network Function Virtualization Infrastructure (NFVI) and Virtualized Infrastructure Management (VIM). It integrates upstream projects and performs testing to ensure it is fit for its purpose.
