Virtual Network Function Manager
Ribbon’s VNF Manager provides a common platform for the lifecycle management of all Ribbon VNF products, based on the ETSI NFV Reference Architecture.
More specifically, the Ribbon VNF Manager provides lifecycle management across a wide variety of Virtual Infrastructure Managers (VIMs), including different versions and commercial distributions of OpenStack from RedHat, Canonical, Mirantis, and Wind River.
In addition to VIM support, VNF Manager supports ETSI-defined APIs to integrate with multiple NFV Orchestrators to automate the instantiation, control and monitoring of Ribbon VNFs. Ribbon integrates with HPE NFV Director; HPE Helion; Nokia CloudBand; and Rift.io as well as operator-specific implementations.
The VNF Manager provides a dashboard that shows the status of all Ribbon VNFs including the individual VMs, as well as a dynamic display as the number of VMs increases or decreases due to elastic scaling capacity up and downs. VNF Manager also provides a wizard to simplify the complexity and reduce the time it takes to deploy VNFs.
