RIFT.io is a founding member of and seed code contributor to Open Source MANO, an operator-led initiative to meet the requirements for orchestration of production NFV networks. RIFT.io joined the OSM community because we believe in the project’s mission of delivering an open source Management and Orchestration (MANO) stack that can consume openly available Information Models, aligned with ETSI NFV specifications.
RIFT.io’s important contribution to OSM includes the Network Service Orchestration (NSO) Layer, which is responsible for the end-to-end network service delivery and drives the coherent service delivery through the Resource Orchestration and VNF Configuration components. RIFT.io also provided the UI and system visibility layer, which provides a single view into configuring and reviewing the state of the orchestration environment, as well as detailed views of the underlying compute and network topologies the orchestration environment is managing.
RIFT.ware is compliant with the TM Forum ZOOM project (Zero-touch Orchestration, Operations and Management), which is working to develop best practices to support both the technology and business transformation brought about by the introduction of NFV and SDN.
