MANO – Management and Orchestration
With respect to NFV (Network Functions Virtualization), MANO provides the ability to instantiate new virtualized nodes, manage existing nodes and also scale up or down resources for a given node. In addition, MANO facilitates the on-boarding of new VNFs (Virtualized Network Functions) into the system, as well as managing the instantiation of new network services. Key elements of MANO include the NFVO (NFV Orchestrator), VNFM (VNF Manager) and VIM (Virtualized Infrastructure Manager).
