CI/CD in ETSI NFV environment

CI/CD and DevOps are common practices for webscale software enabling rapid development of applications and the business. Usage of DevOps requires the automatic management of software components on live systems and the possibility to send feedback from the live systems to the developers. ETSI NFV defined a multi layer MANO framework to manage the different layers of telecom services. OpenStack, as the defacto standard VIM, is a key enabler of DevOps in the NFV architecture, because of its capability to dynamically manage workloads. Currently there is an activity within the NFV community to introduce capabilities that allow DevOps and CI/CD concepts to fit into this framework. In this presentation we will describe the challenges of introducing DevOps practices in the telecom environment and we will also describe the planned solutions for these challenges.
