Topic2 - Automation in Multi-Stakeholder Ecosystems
Telecom operators wanting to offer end-to-end services with potential global reach will typically require dynamic and automated interaction with other providers for enabling an Open Coopetitive 5G Service Ecosystem but
• How can they find out about the capabilities of other providers?
• How can they handle the lifecycle of such services?
• How can they ensure SLAs among providers?
Presently, interconnection and wholesale environments are static requiring considerable interactions for any inter-provider connection, largely dependent on manual operation.
We should be able to leverage on virtualization & programmability for creating service offerings with
• Proper mechanisms for trading these capabilities (at resource and XaaS/VNFaaS/ level)
• Interfaces / APIs that could allow this to happen in an automated way
• Configure and manage capabilities on the instantiated resources & functions
