New SONATA blog post!

Blog post image

In this blog post we talk about about the SONATA Self-service.

The demand for virtualized versions of the network functions has increased and that the support for automating the deployment of these services on virtualized or even containerized infrastructure is needed in order to meet this demand.

SONATA facilitates the management and orchestration of the deployed services and functions through the use of plugins called Service Specific Managers (SSMs) and Function Specific Managers (FSMs).

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.
