CSP NFV & SDN blueprint: HP’s Chief Technologist Marc Flauw reviews participation in TM Forum’s ZOOM


HP is an active participant in the TM Forum Zero-touch Orchestration, Operations and Management (ZOOM) program - partners collectively build the CSP NFV and SDN implementation blueprint. The Zoom Program addresses the challenges of end-to-end service and network management, which HP supports with its comprehensive offerings as the world’s largest IT company. In a recent TM Forum interview conducted by Dawn Bushaus, HP’s Chief Technologist Marc Flauw elaborates on HP’s participation in collaborating with ZOOM to supplement the requirements laid out by the ETSI MANO documents. 


“NFV is also bringing a lot of opportunities – first for communications service providers, as one of the end goals is to accelerate innovation and reduce time to market for new services. It is also a big opportunity for new entrants to offer software-only solutions, which are easier to develop and more agile. Breaking down VNFs into more composable ones and introducing SDN [software-defined networking] might also bring new usage, like putting video caches close to the edge where content can follow mobile users.”  He continues, “ZOOM can bring value here by building clear checklists of functionalities for operators that can help them quickly classify orchestrators.”
