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 network functions. It contains key requirements for onboarding and managing the life cycle of a network function. 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 the infrastructure of a CNF 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.
Edit Network Function Catalog You can edit the properties such as general properties, topology, infrastructure requirements, workflows, and resources of a network function.
Role-based Access Control to CNFs As a system administrator, you can provide permissions to users for accessing CNFs in a specific cluster and restrict access to any other clusters.
