Oracle Communications Network Service Orchestration is a functional module of Oracle Communications Unified Inventory Management (UIM).

Network Service Orchestration is used to Model network services, Virtual Network Functions (VNFs), Physical Network Functions (PNFs) and to Manage the life cycles of Network Services and VNFs.

Network Service Orchestration enables to create, implement, and manage the life cycles of network services and deploy the network services as interconnected VNFs and PNFs on virtual resources.

It enables to model a VNF that is composed of multiple internal components called Virtual Network Function Components (VNFCs) ,that can be deployed on multiple Virtual Deployment Units (VDUs). VDUs can be deployed as virtual machines (VMs) in the NFV Infrastructure (NFVI), thus enabling to design and deploy large, complex VNFs across multiple VMs.
