ETSI GS MEC-IEG 005

Mobile-Edge Computing (MEC); Proof of Concept Framework

Published by: 2015-08-01 / 2015-08-01 / 14 pages
The present document defines a framework to be used by ETSI ISG MEC to coordinate and promote multivendor Proofs of Concept (PoC) projects illustrating key aspects of MEC technology. Proofs of Concept are an important tool to demonstrate the viability of a new technology during its early days and or pre-standardisation phase.

The main objectives of the MEC PoC framework are:

  • to ensure the PoC projects are scoped around relevant topics for ISG MEC that require from-the-field input;
  • to ensure that the PoC results, lessons learnt and identified gaps are feedback to ISG MEC;
  • to build confidence on the viability of MEC technology;
  • to encourage the development of a diverse and open ecosystem by fostering the integration of components from different players;
  • to support standardization and industry promotion activities of ISG MEC.

This framework describes:

  • The different roles and responsibilities in the PoC activity process.
  • The PoC activity process.
  • The acceptance criteria for PoC proposals and reports.

ETSI GS NFV-MAN 001

Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV); Management and Orchestration

Published by: 2014-12-01 / 2014-12-01 / 184 pages
ETSI GS NFV-MAN 001 describes the management and orchestration framework required for the provisioning of
virtualised network functions (VNF), and the related operations, such as the configuration of the virtualised network
functions and the infrastructure these functions run on. The objectives are to define this framework, provide
requirements for management and orchestration, identify topics that may serve in later gap analysis against current
standards, identify best practices and provide guidance on how to address identified new topics. The focus of the
present document is on aspects of management and orchestration that are specific to NFV.

The present document addresses the following topics of management and orchestration: architecture framework for
management and orchestration of NFV, information elements, interfaces, provisioning, configuration, and operational
management, including interworking with existing operations and management systems.
