VNF Manager (VFM) for the NFV Cloud
GENBAND VNF Manager (VFM) in the NFV Cloud
The GENBAND VNF Manager (VFM) provides a common platform for the lifecycle management of all GENBAND VNF products, based on the ETSI NFV Reference Architecture. VFM enables the network operator to create and deploy one or many GENBAND VNFs (SBC, ACS, AMS, etc.) – all from the same management interface.
More specifically, the GENBAND VFM interacts with the NFV Orchestrator to automate the instantiation and orchestration, control and monitoring of GENBAND VNFs and the various VMs and VM clusters. The GENBAND Cloud Manager provides a dashboard that shows the status of all GENBAND VNFs including the individual VMs, as well as a dynamic display as the number of VMs increases or decreases as a result of elastically scaling capacity up and down as traffic changes.
GENBAND’s VNF Manager integrates with various network orchestration platforms and virtualization infrastructure, including industry offerings (such as HPE NFV Director, HPE Helion, NOKIA CloudBand, CANONICAL UBUNTU, Wind River Titanium Server) as well as operator-specific implementations. Northbound APIs enable the VFM to adapt a larger orchestrated ecosystem, which the service provider may provide to orchestrate VNFs across multiple vendors per the NFV architecture.
