Agent composition for 5G management and orchestration
- Raisanen V.
Virtualized execution environments in 5G network call for a linkage between network management and orchestration. Execution of 3GPP functionalities and management applications in the cloud also presents an opportunity to innovate outside of traditional paradigms. We describe a framework focusing on a virtual execution environment and utilizing agent composition to serve as a platform for realizations with particular goals â" for example â" in terms of coordination. The framework allows for focusing on the opportunities provided with cloud environment and microservices-based agent composition, and describing relevant aspects of orchestration, while avoiding aspects of orchestration which would bring unnecessary complexity to the analysis. The framework is planned to be used as a basis for research demonstrator later on for implementing 5G use cases.View Original Article
