Title: Management and Orchestration in Complex and Dynamic Environment

Speaker: Rok Arzenšek, Consulting Engineer at NIL

In a large network environment, management and service delivery are time-consuming. The additional challenge is also the "non-resistance" of a network to mistakes, which are usually a result of a manual deployment. The transactional approach addresses precisely this challenge, but is this the only prerequisite for the effective service management?

In this presentation, we will present how standardization can contribute to a successful service orchestration in the SDN environment and what could be achieved by proper system design. We will highlight how both aspects can ensure an effective and easier service management and orchestration in the network environment.
