Session on E2E Network Slicing - Honolulu release Scope and Future Roadmap (Presenters: LIN MENGSwaminathan SeetharamanMilind Jalwadi,Henry Yu)

This session covered what functionality has been realized in Guilin, and the proposal for Honolulu and beyond for each of the following tracks of the E2E Network Slicing use case:

  • Enhancements in CSMF and NSMF for E2E Network Slice allocation, standards alignment, operator intervention, etc.
  • RAN, Core and Transport Slicing related aspects, including alignment with O-RAN (RAN) and ETSI ZSM & IETF (Transport)
  • KPI Monitoring, Closed Loop Control & Intelligent Slicing

Feedback from the ONAP community was sought on topics such as Network Slicing in roaming scenarios (i.e., true e2e slicing), interaction of slice management & orchestration functions (NxMF) with the Core NFs such as NSSF and NWDAF, collaboration with C&PS project, etc.

Presentation Slides are available here.

  • Jerma M2 scheduled for Oct 20
    •  Functional freeze - Readiness Review
      • Document significant accomplishments
      • Release Management Tasks sent to for M2
  • Goal for Documentation outline in Jerma Release -Agreed
  • Revisions to RELREQ-13 on Storage testing requirements and clarifications - Agreed
  • OPNFV Input to LFN Governing Board meeting on Project's Priority Activities - Agreed
  • Meld Meeting
  • Meld work continues to make great progress.  All three workstreams have actions and activities working towards a January 1 transition.
  • Likely that new TSC will be interim to align with the election processes of OPNFV and get the Meld org in sync with rest of LFN

ONAP Requirements Subcommittee - new requirements for Honolulu

#1 ONAP ETSI-Alignment (SOL004, SOL005 v3.3.1)

#2 E2E Network Slicing use case

#3 Smart Operator Intent -based Network & 5G Slicing Support

#4 5G OOF SON use case

#2 E2E Network Slicing use case

Comment: O-RAN alignment and collaboration seems more pragmatic for the upcoming releases, than the other topics such as slicing in roaming scenarios, etc.

Comment: Clarify what exactly is meant by O-RAN alignment to avoid misinterpretation.


ONAP Impact of the current ONAP release- and branching strategy on documentation

Discussed the possible solutions for branching documentation and project / Cross release issues.

Several projects have deprecated repos

Documentation update tracking should be part of release process

should documentation be in a single repo ?

ONAP: Hands-on session on ONAP Optimization Framework (OOF)

This session provided an overview of OOF, its modular architecture, capabilities and ease of reuse onboarding a new use case or requirement that needs some sort of optimization functionality. It also described the typical realization steps to follow for any use case or requirement needing optimization (provided by OOF). It was followed by a guided walk-through with an example of how the E2E Network Slicing use case realized the optimization needs easily through a lot of reuse of existing functionality with some enhancements.

Comment: Policy team highly appreciated the work done by OOF team for effective usage of the new Policy framework.

Query: A query on how subnet instance's resource occupancy levels and capability of an existing instance to cater to a new request are considered by OOF.

Response: This isn't yet considered by OOF, however, it is proposed to be realized in Honolulu release, with OOF getting the required info on available resources and capacity through an "inventory provider" which for example could be AAI or DCAE, which leverages existing OOF capabilities to a large extent.

Presentation slides are available here.


Field trial by Orange reviewed

Next OVP revision documentation update planning

Very engaged conversation on Telemetry and Observability 

HA requirements got into the obligation of defining the test approach vs. implementation.

ODIM Project gave an overview of the project, with the CNTT RM team describing how the Hardware Interface Manager (HIM) concept can be addressed by ODIM. Several key areas were identified for collaboration. The ODIM team will continue the dialog in RM meetings and RA meetings afterwards, at the appropriate time. 


CNTT - Telemetry/Observability architecture - a path to full automation

this session  presented an architecture for the Telemetry/Observability of VNFs and Cloud Infrastructure (NFVI) to achieve full automation leading to zero touch operation.

This architecture is based on a central telemetry data BUS on which are connected Providers Consumers and Subscribers of telemetry data.

Edge Workstream

OVP 2.0
Input on CNF Workload requirements - Requirements for the Infrastructure make sense and there should be a test on the infrastructure to ensure that the workload requirements are met. Requirements drive the tests that are developed.
--- having Workload requirements BEYOND the above is thought to be out of scope for CNTT & OPNFV. Several people agreed or seemed to agree on this.
