Published: 16 Dec 2016

In today’s impression of Network Function Virtualization (NFV) architecture—despite suppliers’ and standards bodies’ best efforts at creating management and orchestration frameworks—there are gaps in the spaces where service quality management, assurance, customer experience management, analytics, and orchestration should meet. This report examines some emerging concepts, solutions, and standards for addressing these shortcomings, including the data flow and service modeling capabilities of technologies such as Kafka and TOSCA. The report also highlights the strategy behind a new OSS portfolio by Accanto Systems, designed to fill the gaps between policy and orchestration, and between service quality and customer experience.
