vNGN-OSS: an architectural framework for virtual network management and orchestration

Dana Cooperson Research Director

"The success of CSPs in the digital economy depends on them deploying a network architecture that can dynamically and holistically manage physical and virtual resources to support service innovation at scale."

Analysys Mason report vNGN-OSS

Network equipment providers (NEPs) are trying to develop their network management systems (NMS) to encompass the new needs of network function virtualisation (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN) while maintaining physical infrastructure management, and are seeking best practices and guidelines. This report provides a network orchestration framework to help NEPs navigate the evolution from NMS/EMS to the new network orchestration space, and uses the new taxonomy to track the market and its associated vendors.

THIS STRATEGY REPORT PROVIDES:

  • an overview of how a new approach to network design and operational systems can support communications service providers' (CSPs') digital economy business objectives
  • analysis of the key characteristics and building blocks of an end-to-end functional architecture that pulls together NFV management and orchestration (MANO) and OSS
  • a blueprint for the technical requirements of a vNGN-OSS
  • a summary of how the vNGN-OSS will affect segmentation in the software market and Analysys Mason's research plans
  • recommendations for vendors and CSPs.
