Subject: Re: [tosca] [OASIS Issue Tracker] (TOSCA-187) Using TOSCA template to describe the NFV forwarding graph

Excellent proposal.

NFV developments are arguably the most significant
in this sector.  Does OASIS have any other NFV related
efforts underway?

hi Chris lauwers
First, I agree that "the concepts of "nodes" and "relationships" can be used to model any graph, whether it's a NFV service graph or a network topology graph. "

but if you see my proposal in the document" https://www.oasis-open.org/apps/org/workgroup/tosca/document.php?document_id=54169). ",   VNF does not only contain software companent, it can be map to a tier node templates including software application and compute node, and the virtual link is not the same with the network node type either, it defines the connections between several VNFs.

Using TOSCA template to describe the NFV forwarding graph

                 Key: TOSCA-187
                 URL: https://issues.oasis-open.org/browse/TOSCA-187
             Project: OASIS Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications (TOSCA) TC
          Issue Type: New Feature
            Reporter: Shitao Li
            Assignee: Shitao Li

NFV (network function virtualization) will study the gap between NS description in NFV and tosca template.
VNFFG(VNF forwarding graph) is one of the gap that may need TOSCA to add some more features to fit the requirements.
