Facebook Connectivity is committed to bring more people online to a faster Internet. Magma is expected to bring more people online by enabling operators with open, flexible and extensible network solutions. At the heart of Magma lies a distributed Evolved Packet Core (EPC), a Federation Gateway, and a cloud-based Orchestrator - all of which are open-source. The technology stack is built ground-up using modern technologies like cloud-native principles, DevOps model, containerized control / mgmt. plane and virtualized data plane. It aims to greatly simplify the core network architecture with a goal to reach the remote, unconnected and under-connected parts of the world across a wide variety of use cases: Fixed Wireless Access, Private LTE / CBRS, Carrier Wi-Fi, Mobile Broadband (4G / LTE, 5G), Massive and Industrial IoT, and the Network-as-a-Service (NaaS).

The proposed session is to present the ongoing work between Magma and COMAC / OMEC projects of ONF on identifying synergies and collaboration plans. Both teams are working together to cross-leverage concepts and technologies towards and thereby, build stronger solutions for each team's targeted use cases and markets.
