DMTF Presents at ETSI Workshop on Information Modeling for Network Functions Virtualization

Last week the DMTF participated in ETSI’s Industry Specification Group for Network Functions Virtualization (ETSI NFV) ground-breaking workshop on aligning cloud-centric and network-centric initiatives to ensure successful realization of NFV through automation. The workshop, hosted by CableLabs in Louisville, Colorado, brought together leading Standards Development Organizations (SDOs) and Open Source communities in an ‘NFV Village.’

DMTF’s presentation included information and data modeling technologies (CIM, CIMI, OVF, Redfish, VMAN) and their applicability in managing Network Function Virtualization infrastructure management.

Other participating organizations included 3GPP, ATIS, Broadband Forum, ETSI NFV, IETF, ITU-T SG 15, MEF, OASIS/TOSCA, Open Cloud Connect, ONF, OpenDaylight, OPNFV and TM Forum. The workshop resulted in an increased understanding of the challenges and opportunities in the development and adoption of various modeling approaches.
