What is this release trying to address?

Describe the problem being solved by this release.

The VF-C  Beijing release has two primary objectives: 1. improving platform maturity ; 2. supporting use cases.  

  1. System maturity enhancement: integration with Logging/A&AI-Image Manager, enhance stability,performance,security etc.

      2. Functionality enhancement to existing use cases: scaling, HPA

      3. Maturity enhancement to existing functionalities:  interface align ETSI, indirect mode support

Use Cases

Describe the use case this release is targeted for (better if reference to customer use case).

Use Case: VoLTE(approved)

Use Case: Residential Broadband vCPE (Approved)

Enterprise vCPE - stretch goal

Minimum Viable Product

Describe the MVP for this release.

LCM(instantiate/terminate/heal/scaling) for NS

LCM(instantiate/terminate/heal/scaling)  and FCAPS for vendor VNFs

LCM(instantiate/terminate) for open source VNFs

Integration specification for Logging/A&AI-Image Manager


List the functionalities that this release is committing to deliver by providing a link to JIRA Epics and Stories. In the JIRA Priority field, specify the priority (either High, Medium, Low). The priority will be used in case de-scoping is required. Don't assign High priority to all functionalities.
