TeraFlow celebrated the 1st virtual meeting with the Advisory Board on December 17th, 2021, with the aim to present the impact and the main achievements of each one of the Work Packages on the first year of funding. Also, the motivation behind the creation of a novel cloud-native SDN controller was introduced along with the three scenarios where the TeraFlow OS components will be validated. 

The members gave very positive feedback and some guidance for future work on how to ensure the sustainability of the TeraFlow SDN controller after the H2020 TeraFlow project ends. This future effort aims to maintain the momentum of the standardisation efforts, seek touchpoints with ETSI, and study the possibility of performing a PoC (Proof of Concept).
