Work Program Release 2 & Release 3 Updates

Joan Triay Marques | Technical Manager | ETSI NFV ISG

Specialist | NTT DOCOMO

 
 

 

Since ETSI NFV ISG foundation, more than 60 deliverables have been published and referenced throughout the industry. The NFV ISG continues to explore and strengthen the NFV ecosystem through specification development and guidance on best practices on using NFV.

This session provides an update on the Release 2 maintenance and stage 3 specification deliverables, information on new work scope and a summary of completed work in Release 3.

 

09:25

NFV MANO Part 1: Overview and VNF Lifecycle Management

Uwe Rauschenbach | Rapporteur SOL003 | ETSI NFV ISG

Senior Standardization Specialist, Nokia Bell Labs & CTO | Nokia

 
 

 

Interfaces and Architecture (IFA) WG will present an overview of the ETSI NFV MANO concepts and architectural framework and how this architecture is used for VNF lifecycle management.

The presentation will describe the MANO interfaces and functional blocks. It will introduce what a VNF is and how it is described in the VNF descriptor, will explain the main concepts and operations of VNF lifecycle management, and will describe the role of the VNFM.

 

10:15

VNF Package

Thinh Nguyenphu | Vice Chair, SOL(Solution) WG | ETSI NFV ISG

Network Architect | Nokia

 
 

 

The VNF package specification ETSI GS NFV-SOL 004 defines a standard way for VNF providers to deliver VNFs to service providers and makes the delivery simple, effective and efficient.

A uniform VNF package format enables automatic execution of VNF on-boarding and acceptance testing, and allows the VNFs to be interoperable with independently developed NFV management and orchestration systems. The VNF package specification leverages the TOSCA YAML CSAR archive format by adding all necessary integrity and authenticity features.

ZERO TOUCH & CARRIER AUTOMATION SUMMIT
(MISSISSIPPI)

 
 

 

Please note: this Summit is open for all delegates

 
 

 

The future of Network & Service Management is changing - re-architecting for SDN & NFV.

This Summit will highlight the operational impacts when the network is virtualised, and network functions reside in the Cloud - and what the new future of hybrid operations management will require. Provisioning, inventory, analytics, telemetry, service assurance - all OSS functions - will need to transform, to enable this new future of Carrier Automation.

Hear an introduction to this new transformation area from industry leaders as they map out requirements, directions and priorities for a Zero Touch future.

 
 

 

Please note: This important development area is the focus of "ZERO TOUCH & CARRIER AUTOMATION CONGRESS", 20-23 March 2018, Madrid, Spain

FIRESIDE CHAT - Drivers to a Zero Touch Network & Service Future

 
 

 

The preceding sessions set the stage for this discussion to expand on:

• What is Zero Touch (or full automation) - what do we mean by this term, what's different this time?
• How can it be achieved? Do we need a standardised architecture? How does standardisation play with open source? What are the steps here?
• What are the organisational impacts, eg. skills, etc
• How may new approaches to AI and ML be applied to carrier operations - is this the main focus?

Systemic Qualities & Architectural Principles of a Zero-Touch Management Environment

Alex Vul | Principal Cloud Architect | Intel

 

 

In this session, we will explore the shape and form of a management platform that may be used to manage and operate a deployed zero-touch environment. We will start with the implications of "zero-touch" requirements on how NFV infrastructure and services are managed, and discuss the systemic qualities, functional characteristics and architectural principles of a "zero-touch" management stack.

This session is based on preliminary industry conversations that have taken place during 2017, as part of the "Zero-Touch Network & Service Management" initiative.

NFV INTEROP INFORMATION EXCHANGE
(ONYX)

 
 

 

Please note: this Workshop is open for all delegates

 
 

 

Automation of VNF delivery and on-boarding is key to accelerating time-to-value and time-to-market for companies participating in the NFV ecosystem. Current VNF delivery and on-boarding processes are too labour-intensive and time-consuming, for both VNF product vendors and network service operators. To make network automation viable, agreement across the NFV ecosystem on standardized VNF information, data models and data model attributes is critical.

This session is an open, multi-vendor, multi-community information exchange which presents and discusses key advances which enable VNF definition/package portability between Management and Orchestration (MANO) solutions and different MANO software stacks.

NFVi - NFV Infrastructure (NFVi) is a key component of the NFV architecture that describes the hardware and software components on which virtual networks are built. In doing so the NFVi layer provides the actual physical resources and corresponding software on which VNFs can be deployed. NFVi creates a virtualization layer that sits right above the hardware and abstracts the HW resources, so they can be logically partitioned and provided to the VNF to perform their functions.

Cloud Native - Cloud Native is an approach that uses an open source software stack to deploy applications as micro services. Each micro service is packaged into its own container and those same containers are then 'dynamically orchestrated' in order to 'optimise resource utilisation', which provides a controllable, flexible, scalable and composable cloud model, which enables service offerings to be brought to market quicker.
