NFV Service Lifecycle Management Leveraging DevOps Tool Chains and Intent-Driven Operations for Increased Automation
Date / Time: Wednesday, January 31, 2018, 10:00 a.m New York / 3:00 p.m LondonOverview:
Five years on from the initial NFV white paper, leading operators have moved beyond the proof of concept and trial phase to widespread deployment of virtualized network functions. The challenges they now face are how to make those network functions more "cloud native," and how to increase the level of automation throughout the lifecycle of a service chain from initial installation, testing and provisioning, to ongoing software updates and self-healing of VNFs.
In this webinar, Accanto Systems and IBM will explain how NFV service design, test and deployment tasks should be coordinated across service engineering and operations to bring new services into production with a high degree of confidence while maintaining high service levels despite the highly dynamic nature of NFV.
Service designers and engineers need DevOps and software lifecycle tools to create pre-production environments where they can test service on-boarding and accelerate production break-fix scenarios. At the same time, operations staff require similar tool chains to manage the ongoing maintenance of services and their component VNFs. To achieve high levels of automation in operations will require a transition from today's manual processes to more simplified, intent-driven operations. By sharing common tools, engineering and operations can better collaborate to deliver and maintain more reliable NFV-based services.
Focusing on the popular vEPC use case, the webinar will demonstrate tools that can automate service, design and deployment tasks across test and production environments. Example tasks Accanto Systems and IBM will demonstrate include:
