Amsterdam Integration Testing 

status :

CLAMP - SDC: tested 100%

CLAMP - policy: tested 100% (TCA model need to be updated in policy to finalize the testing)

CLAMP - UI (design of CL): 100% tested

CLAMP - DCAE: Tested successfully with latest changes in RC2 in SB01 lab during the first weekend of November (4-5)

vCPE : TCA closed loop provisionning 100% reached - Deployed status

vVOLTE : Holmes integration provisionning : Cancelled as Policy↔DCAE interface is not ready. - Deferred to Beijing R2 Release

Beijing Integration Testing : Integration Weather Board for Beijing Release

Casablanca Integration Testing : Integration Weather Board for Casablanca Release

  1. Hi Gervais-Martial Ngueko, could you highlight major differences in closed loop automation use case support between CLAMP and the proposed OOF project ?

    1. Hi, can you tell me where is the description of the OOF project, is it a R2 project ?

      1. Yes; it is in R2 proposal as part of 5G RAN deployment and optimization use cases. We could have a discussion with the lead to figure out how CLAMP and OOF fit together or expected to be independent. OOF is being discussed in the context of network slice (I presume it would be realized as a service in ONAP) optimization as well. It would be good to get a matrix identifying levels of closed loop automation. i.e. VNF level (which CLAMP addresses today...), Service level (OOF ?).

        1. My view is: OOF would provide mS on DCAE, those mS would then be available to be included in a control loop designed and managed using CLAMP. Those OOF control loop would obviously trigger appropriate optimization policy (this would be part of the control loop designed and managed via CLAMP).

          Note that currently control loop are triggered by event coming from VNF, so (automatic)scheduled trigger are not yet part of the solution.

          So the link between OOF and CLAMP for me:

          1) micro-service on DCAE dedicated to OOF usable in Control Loop

          2) specific OOF policies that would be used in OOF Control loop.

          But of course we can have discussion with OOF lead (and other people involved) to dig deeper.

  2. Hi Clamp team , Can you post the Video/Document of End-to-End Closed loop demo using CLAMP ? . It will be very much helpful .

    Thanks a lot !
