A network function, as defined by ETSI Industry Specification Group (ISG), is a functional building block within a network infrastructure. It has well-defined external interfaces and a well-defined functional behavior.
Onboarding a Network Function A network function descriptor describes the instantiation parameters and operational behaviors of the VNFs. It contains key requirements for onboarding and managing the life cycle of a VNF. Onboarding a network function includes uploading a network function package to the catalog, and creating or editing a network function descriptor draft.
Customizing Network Function Infrastructure Requirements You can customize a CNF's infrastructure according to its unique requirements. Customizing the infrastructure requirements enables you to create a cluster, customize, and deploy the network functions without any manual user inputs.
Download a Network Function Package You can download a network function package in the CSAR format to your local drive.
