The CloudNFVTM: Dynamic, Data-Driven Management and Operations project from the CloudNFV consortium took the award for most innovative catalyst at last week’s TM Forum Live! conference and expo in Nice, France. T his project is building on the goals of the TM Forum’s Information Framework (SID) to solve a big problem around network function virtualization: how to link orchestration systems in a virtual network with the other business and operational support systems controlling network policy. Without these connections, services like dynamic quality of service or even automated energy management simply won’t work at scale, according to the press release announcing the award.
