MANO and VNF Management Briefing

2 hours
Your company is looking to move to virtual network devices (VNFs), and it seems like this is a whole new world for network operations. One of the greatest challenges is automating across this new virtual device space. Industry bodies like ETSI have published standards on Management and Network Orchestration (MANO), but it's confusing and complex. Request this briefing to get a primer on the world of MANO, NFV management and related tools and technologies.

Goals & Objectives

In this briefing, we'll take you from "I can't spell MANO" to a solid understanding of what, why and how orchestration applies to your virtual environment. We will look at how Network Function Virtualization (NFV) differs from standard networking methods. We will also take a careful look at the standards and tools involved in deploying and managing virtual network assets.  

We will address:

  • A fly-over of network virtualization.
  • Understanding the ETSI standards.
  • Other methods of managing an NFV environment.
  • A look at a MANO solution in action.
  • Planning a way forward for your organization.

What is a Briefing? A scheduled event with a WWT subject matter expert — typically via a live Webex — who presents an overview of specific topics, technologies, capabilities or market trends. Your attendees are allotted time for Q&A to pose questions specific to your organization. These are delivered free of charge. 

Who Should Attend? Network planners, technical managers, executives who wish to understand the NFV and MANO environment, engineers and architects who are getting started with MANO.
