Agenda plan: TBD
To be discussed in normal weekly calls
Issues with using ProcessingConstruct as VNF
Concern that in the ETSI model, the VNF and PNF are modeled separately.
VNF and PNF are functions. The latter is just associated more directly to physical stuff, e.g., ASIC.
In the Core model, we describe an abstraction of the function, using ProcessConstruct (PC). PC models functions that are not explicitly modeled using ForwardingConstruct, LTP, and ControlConstruct. At the logical level, the function can be supported in physical or virtual machine level. The physical aspects can be navigated through the associate equipment model.
Malcolm Betts: To describe the relationship between the logical model and the physical implementation (e.g. ASIC, FPGA, VM, etc.), including discussion of expression of capability. Aim for text for TR-512.A.2 A lot of this is already in TR-512.12_OnfCoreIm-Software and TR-512.A.13_OnfCoreIm-Appendix-SoftwareExamples which already has a FPGA example.
