This webinar will provide an introduction to the Interfaces and Architecture (IFA) Working Group (WG) in ETSI NFV. It will describe the ETSI NFV architecture, functional requirements, information models and descriptors being standardized by the IFA WG. Special emphasis will be given to the recently published specifications on VIM northbound interfaces (IFA005, IFA006). It will also give an overview of the 2016-2017 IFA WG work plan.
The speaker is Dr. Raquel Morera, chair of the IFA Working Group in ETSI NFV. Raquel is an Associate Fellow at Verizon. She has pioneered much of the work on SDN and NFV from conception, deployment and standardization. She helped establish the ETSI NFV MANO WG, which she co-chaired until it closed.
