NFV system integration involves complex work of many aspects, in which, multi-vendor integration and E2E service guarantee of multiple vendors and in open source environment are especially complex. Seeking to be the best partner of operators in ICT transformation, ZTE provides one-stop NFV system integration solution, which can assist operators in plan and design, deployment, verification, and maintenance; delivering efficient and executable NFV system to operators with premium system integration services.
Besides, the various system integration tool kits can accelerate NFVI integration, VNF integration and MANO integration in both the pre-integration verification phase and the integration delivery phase, enhancing the system integration efficiency.
Light spots in the solution:
** Dual-DevOps multi-vendor integration plan
Dual-DevOps solution is proposed for the pre-integration and the integration and delivery phases according to the features and requirements of the system integration. It links equipment vendor, integration vendor, and operator together and forms a highly self-managed dual-DevOps closed loop via standardized process, this not only reduces the risk of system integration by multiple vendors, but also facilitates the implementation of commercial application site.
**Diversified integration services
It provides NFVI integration service, VNF integration service, and MANO integration service for different scenarios, meeting diversified requirements of different customers.
**Complete and explicit multi-vendor integration PSI work flow
It not only defines the work interface and the responsibility table of integration vendor, operator, and equipment provider; but also specifies a complete work flow of integration delivery, avoiding dispute during delivery, guaranteeing orderly and efficient integration delivery, and finally delivering a premium NFV system to the customer.
**Abundant E2E integration tools
ZTE has developed a series of integration tools, including automated deployment tool, function automated test tool, performance evaluation tool, health inspection tool, root cause analysis tool, one-key upgrade tool, and system backup and recovery tool; which help enhance the deployment and the operation and maintenance efficiency greatly.
