Talk Abstract

5G has ushered in a new technological revolution, which is a major paradigm shift from the previous generations of mobile network architectures. It has spurned new business ideas and enabled new use cases that were either not possible or perceivable with the previous G’s. At the heart of 5G is Network Function Virtualization (NFV), which is one of the key technology enablers of not only 5G but will continue to play a central role in the coming generational evolutions. In this regard, ETSI NFV Industry specification group (ISG) has been formed to standardize the NFV management and orchestration (MANO) system, its interfaces and operations enabling a variety of technical features, and interoperability with external management systems. In this context, this talk will give an overview of the latest progress being made in the development of the NFV MANO system for supporting and enabling a variety of features such as 5GNFV, Network Slicing, multi-site connectivity services, Cloud-Native VNFs and Container Infrastructure management, to name a few. Also some insights will be provided in terms of the adoption of ETSI NFV standards by open source projects like OpenStack, ONAP, OSM and the scope of ETSI NFV’s liaisons with other SDOs like 3GPP, ETSI MEC, ETSI ZSM, etc. Based on this, thoughts will be shared as to how the development in NFV is going beyond 5G use cases, and how it is evolving and paving way to take over challenges posed by the next wave of 6G.
