T-NOVA project releases NFV architecture specification document for VNFaaS

The NFV-focused T-NOVA EC/FP7 research project, led by MNL, released its second specification document, proposing an integrated top-down NFV system architecture for the provision of Virtual Network Functions as-a-Service. The T-NOVA architecture reuses ETSI NFV concepts for the lower architectural layers, while it introduces novel entities, including an NFV Marketplace with the aim of accelerating the market uptake of the VFNaaS business case. The defined architecture is reasonably complex and feasible to realise, being compatible with existing state-of-the-art IT and network infrastructures and will be fully implemented in the course of the project.

VNFaaS Use Cases and Requirements document released

T-NOVA project released its first specification document, identifying use cases and requirements for an integrated Virtual Network Functions as-a-Service (VNFaaS) platform, such as the T-NOVA system. From a business point of view, the document proposes multiple value chain configurations, involving actors such as Infrastructure Providers, VNFaaS Service Providers and Function Developers. Elementary VNFaaS use cases cover all technical and commercial aspects and include: service composition, trading, provision, scaling, monitoring, billing and termination. High-level system requirements are derived from the list of use cases. Read the document here.
