An open source cloud management platform (CMP) can help accelerate the development of a carrier-class network function virtualization (NFV) management and orchestration (MANO) subsystem. There are also NFV orchestration (NFVO) capabilities that support orchestration and automation of modern cloud-native applications. And while virtualized infrastructure management (VIM) within the MANO subsystem of the ETSI NFV reference architecture has been converging around OpenStack, solutions and standards for virtualized network functions manager (VNFM) and NFV orchestrator (NFVO) functions continue to emerge.
How do you navigate all of these developments? In our upcoming webinar “Building NFV MANO based on a cloud management platform,” we will explore how ManageIQ, an open source CMP, can be the basis to accelerate the development of a carrier-class MANO solution. The webinar will be held Wednesday, August 10 at 11:00 a.m. EDT (8:00 a.m. PDT), and you can register online for free.
Presenters Aaron Smith, senior principal software engineer of NFV partner engineering at Red Hat and Pasi Vaananen, systems architect in the NFV office of technology at Red Hat will also cover NFVO capabilities that support orchestration/automation of modern cloud-native applications, as well as network services that require specific telco features. In the webinar, you’ll learn:
- Commonalities and differences between CMP and NFV MANO.
- How to use the ManageIQ CMP’s extensibility to enable and manage NFV MANO workflows.
- How network services and VNF can be onboarded by ManageIQ through integration of TOSCA-based network service and VNF descriptors (NSDs & VNFDs).
- How ManageIQ can be used for complex network service deployment, utilizing multi-VIM, multi-technology (VM and container-based VNFs) and multi-site capabilities.
- How ManageIQ CMP can be used to integrate OpenStack private cloud, Amazon Public Cloud, Tacker as G-VNFM, and containers using OpenShift, Kubernetes, and Docker, as well as NFV configuration management via Ansible integration.
We hope you can join us on August 10!
