  2. Platform Usability
    1. External interoperability - NBI with BSS/OSS, SBI with 3rd party controllers and cross operator communication
    2. Internal consistency - generic catalog or parser service, systemic way to persist ONAP event data, closed loop design and capabilities, 
    3. Documentation of implementations

    4. Plan on devoting resources to TOSCA VNF validation, promote vendors VNFs, provide lad support
  4. Use case scenarios
    1. E2E network slice management (5G)
      1. ONAP working with NSMF, NSSMF 
        1. Clarify usecase gaps via vcollab w/ SDOs
    2. CCVPN Extension (beyond Dublin functionality)
      1. enhance service design
      2. Site NS deployment
      3. cross-operator connect

DDF / Plugfest plan for EUAG Atul Purohit

  • Planned attendees: Nishi Mathur Andreas Geissler Lingli Deng
  • DDF plan: 
    • Summarize the 7 service providers requirements - get a single view of the priorities
    • Meet/greet on Day1
    • Use Case subcommittee/EUAG meeting Day1
      • Gain common view of service provider requirements
      • Unify the Use Case Committee/EUAG requirements
    • EUAG and ONAP TSC collaboration Day2
    • ONS EU plans Day3
  • ?Are service providers articulating the requirements to drive ONAP into production?
    • This is a known next step, but going slowly
  • Expected outcome
    • Clear list of priorities - jointly with use case
    • Release wise preferences - shared with TSC and agreed to...
