Hi Haibin,

Yes, I think that a use case draft for NFV configuration will be useful!

I also agree with Diego that it is important to focus on the configuration protocol solution needed  for the support of the EMS-NFV interface associated with the NFV architecture framework.

Best regards,
Georgios

Hi Georgios,

Thank you for the reply. Right, that's why we target the virtualization characteristics of VNF. Implementation of virtual network functions gradually get deployed in the real world. If you have multiple vendors and consumers for the VNF, you need a standard protocol for this platform. And we will explain them more in a use case draft for NFV configuration.

Best Regards!
-Haibin
