NVFO – NFV Orchestrator
The NFVO is a functional element of MANO (Management and Orchestration), providing a critical role in the on-boarding and instantiation of VNFs (Virtualized Network Functions) and Network Services. The NFVO will also be involved in scale up/down of resources. In order to facilitate its role, the NFVO will routinely be in communication with the VNFM (VNF Manager) and the VIM (Virtualized Infrastructure Manager).
