This Webinar will provide a high level overview of ETSI activities on the development of REST APIs for NFV Management and Orchestration, followed by a tutorial on the VNF Package specification that has just been completed.
The VNF package specification ETSI GS NFV-SOL 004 defines a standard way for VNF providers to deliver VNFs to service providers and makes the delivery simple, effective and efficient. A uniform VNF package format enables automatic execution of VNF on-boarding and acceptance testing, and allows the VNFs to be interoperable with independently developed NFV management and orchestration systems.
The VNF package specification leverages the TOSCA YAML CSAR archive format by adding all necessary integrity and authenticity features.
