HPE NFV Director
Whether the needs are modest or sophisticated, HP NFV Director provides the necessary mechanisms and controls to successfully operationalize a network functions virtualization deployment.
A preintegrated solution, HP NFV Director tames the wild complexities introduced by network functions virtualization (NFV) in telecommunications networks. It brings together HP capabilities in operations support systems (OSS) and information technology (IT) management to provide a comprehensive, multivendor NFV orchestrator solution.
Delivers NFV orchestration
HP NFV Director provides a common point to ensure consistent management and behavior of VNFs, regardless of vendor, enabling each VNF to efficiently run on heterogeneous hardware platforms and virtualization environments. It takes responsibility for automatically managing the end-to-end service across VNF, VNF forwarding graphs (VNF-FGs), and network services (NSs).
HP NFV Director is designed to meet the evolving ETSI specifications for the NFV orchestrator functionality. This includes the orchestration and management of virtual network functions and network services, providing the global resource management, and consistently applying global, cross-VNF, and VNF-specific policies.
Within the ETSI model, VNF managers are responsible for the virtual network functions lifecycle actions—deciding to scale in or out, for example. HP NFV Director can work with external VNF managers, when supplied by the vendors. It also can provide the VNF manager functionality through its embedded functions, which compensate for completely or partially missing VNF manager functionality in the vendor solutions or in virtual network functions created from basics by carriers.
