This course focuses on the Management and Orchestration (MANO) functions with the building blocks of the main ETSI NFV architecture as a base.

While still keeping the big picture and real-world use cases in view, it describes the three main sub-components of MANO (NFVO, VNFM and VIM) and explains how they are used to construct a Network Service (NS) comprising virtualized as well as physical network functions (VNFs and PNFs) connected with virtual network links (VLs).

This course exists in a shorter version, NFV MANO In Half a Day, and a much shorter version if time is of the essence.

NOTE: The course is under development and the content may be subject to changes.

Prerequisites

Working knowledge of computer and telecommunications systems as well as understanding of the ETSI NFV architecture corresponding to the course “NFV Architecture and Principles”.
