January 17th 2020: 5GTANGO project announces the release 5.1 of SONATA NFV platform, which provides novel and disruptive features to support the DevOps model in NFV. The release is used in three exemplary 5G pilots in the sectors of smart manufacturing, immersive media and real-time communications, showing the added value of SDN/NFV. This release 5.1 will be the latest one produced by 5GPPP 5GTANGO project.

The 5GTANGO project has been tasked with addressing the significant challenges associated with the development, testing and deployment of the complex services envisioned for the promising 5G networks and empowered by SDN/NFV technologies.

5GTANGO is proud to announce the launch of a new incremental release of its integrated platform. SONATA powered by 5GTANGO release 5.1, which provides compelling new features (apart from significant improvements and bug fixes), such as:

  • Service Development Kit: New User Interface based on Portal, which eases SDK usage.
  • Validation and Verification Platform: Ability to deploy probe’s containers in external servers. Service Platform selection. Support of Python Analytics Services. Analytic engine integration with the Portal.
  • Service Platform: Support for Hybrid Network Slices to manage NSs which are composed either by VNFs or CNFs. Multi-VIM support for Network Slices. Extended interfaces for MANO reconfiguration workflow and  instantiation requests.

5GTANGO embraced an agile development philosophy with continuous improvements since the project started in June 2017. SONATA 5.1 is the final software release of the 5GTANGO project.

Three pilots across three important sectors for 5G (namely, smart manufacturing, immersive media and real-time communications) have been demonstrated by the project in order to illustrate the added value of the service programmability, the service qualification and the orchestration capabilities offered by the SONATA NFV platform. SONATA is used in the smart manufacturing pilot to optimize the factory processes and, in particular, to show how new CNF functions can be orchestrated even at the edge of the factory networks.  In the immersive media scenario, SONATA showcases its ability to manage multiple advanced functions leveraging virtual reality and social network data together at the network edge. In the real-time communications pilot, SONATA illustrates how essential an end-to-end platform is in order to monitor, measure and reduce latency to improve the overall user experience.
