The SDN revolution is shaking up the network infrastructure, but the complexity of the network services is growing up alongside though.
The new required characteristics of network services open new challenges and highlight the necessity of autonomous service adaptation. This adaptation must happen, not only at the application level (as in the IaaS context), but also at the network and network function levels. In the 5G vision, the service must continuously and automatically recomposed itself, as it needs to match the current or incoming context.
SONATA supports those features with the introduction of FSMs (Function Specific Manager) and SSMs (Service Specific Manager) components. If you want to know more about how the project is addressing this challenge, don´t miss our latest blog post.
