About the Book
This book describes the current trends in network automation, operators challenges and how they are addressed by micro-service based closed-loop automation platform-ONAP, by providing required details on ONAP architecture, design principles, development guidance and key features of ONAP components. Also it describes how to use cases and details on how a new network service can be designed and deployed.
Finally it covers on how ONAP supports Linux Foundation's OPNFV Verification Program. We hope this book would help to promote the establishment of network automations and its standards.
