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.

NSO 7.3.5 brings benefits in the following areas:

·     Orchestrate IMS-based network services comprising Oracle VNFs adding 3rd-party VNFs via implementation.

·     Orchestrate Network Services build from complex VNFs spread across many VMs.

·     Automatically implement forwarding graphs, allowing traffic to take different paths depending on QoS or other traffic patterns.


1.     Orchestrate Oracle VNFs

a)     Orchestrate Oracle SBC, for VoIP use case.

b)     Orchestrate Oracle DSR.

c)     Orchestrate OC Policy Manager (PCRF)

2.     Orchestrate VNFs with multiple VNF components

a)     Onboard VNFs with multiple VNF components, via TOSCA file import., Onboarding of Network Services

b)     Orchestrate VNFs comprising multiple components

3.     Orchestrate VNF Forwarding Graphs

a)     Design and orchestrate Forwarding Graphs and Paths using Service Function Chaining

4.     Operations Usability and Integration

a)     Monitor in-progress lifecycle actions

b)     Register VNFs that are ready for configuration with IPSA or other systems

5.     Tech Stack Update and Alta skin adoption (as per UIM)
