Ali will address the challenges and lessons learned SPs face during ONAP implementation that are related to event collections, telemetry and alarm correlation systems. These challenges are caused by the transition from legacy to next-gen systems which required new tools and adapters. Even though the work that is being done currently by ONAP community is crucial, (e.g. by providing Holmes and VES mapper and collector as a standard way of formatting the telemetry and event messages), it is mostly limited to VNFs and there is no solution on how to get event messages in different formats into ONAP and manipulate them by analytic applications. This presentation will highlight what is missing in this area in order to fully support, closed-loop and zero-touch provisioning for PNF-based networks. Ali will also present the work which has been done at Tata Communications related to this subject.
