First ETSI ZSM PoC
ServoCloud is a Cloud-native implementation of ZSM principles, as articulated in the original ETSI ZSM whitepaper, demonstrating model-based, event-driven, policy-controlled automation of network and service management. The objective of the PoC is to make specific, targeted, implementation-independent contributions to the ISG ZSM that help enable efficient end-to-end automation of Network Services at scale (reduce OpEx), which assures customer Quality of Experience (improve customer retention), while optimizing the utilization of network resources.
See ZSM Wiki.
