OSM demo @TMForum Live! Nice

ETSI OSM members and participants Telefónica, Indra and Comptel, plus Etiya, showed the Proof of Concept called “NFV Service Orchestration and Lifecycle Management based on Open Source MANO” in the TMForum event Live! 2016 that took place in Nice the 9th-12th of May.

The demonstration showcased the use of the northbound interfaces exposed by OSM for Network Scenario onboarding, instantiation and management by Comptel’s FlowOne, which was acting as a E2E Orchestrator, managing both virtual and physical infrastructure. The scenario was an enrichment of what was shown on the MWC’16, this time including integration with real-world OSS/BSS and covering a hybrid environment.

The booth was busy all the time, receiving more than 75 visits, with delegates from service providers such as Orange, BT, Vodafone, KDDI, Turkcell, SK Telecom, Globe, NTT y ATT and others. Attendants could see how an scenario of increasing complexity, composed of a number of virtual routers, traffic generator, physical router and an IMS core was composed and deployed using Comptel’s FlowOne user interface. Finally, user accounts were provisioned using Etiya’s Telaura CRM with a real phone-call as grand finale. Delegates showed interests in many different areas: about the state of OSM software, participants in the initiative, about the OSS/BSS systems used in the demo or even on NFV state of the art in general.
