Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV); Management and Orchestration
|Publication Date:||1 December 2014|
The present document describes the management and orchestration framework required for the provisioning of virtualised network functions (VNF), and the related operations, such as the configuration of the virtualised network functions and the infrastructure these functions run on. The objectives are to define this framework, provide requirements for management and orchestration, identify topics that may serve in later gap analysis against current standards, identify best practices and provide guidance on how to address identified new topics. The focus of the present document is on aspects of management and orchestration that are specific to NFV.
The present document addresses the following topics of management and orchestration: architecture framework for management and orchestration of NFV, information elements, interfaces, provisioning, configuration, and operational management, including interworking with existing operations and management systems.
