OAV Architecture Workshop

(Timezone - Europe/Brussels)
(Brussels, Belgium)
Brussels, Belgium

Analysing National Research and Education Network (NREN) architectures from an orchestration, automation and virtualisation (OAV) point of view using a common reference architecture helps align efforts between the NRENs, and find similarities in the way different functionalities and components are implemented, which in turn facilitates potential collaboration and future interoperability between organisations. The TM Forum Open Digital Architecture (ODA) was selected by the Network eAcademy team as a reference blueprint architecture that can be used for such cross-comparison. Several NRENs and GÉANT services have already mapped their architecture to the blueprint. This workshop will give some insights and help to map your own architectures, and will also be a place for discussion of OAV solutions and interoperability among the NRENs.
