Closed-Loop Orchestration Solution
Abstract: Computer networks are continuously evolving and growing in size and complexity. New technologies are being introduced which further increases the complexity. Net- work Service Orchestration is all about pushing configuration out into the network devices automatically without human intervention. There can be issues that causes the orchestration to fail. In many cases manual operations must be done to recover from the error which is very contradicting since the goal of orchestration is that it should be fully automated. There is some indication that the errors that are being solved manually could be de- tected and handled by a feedback mechanism. This thesis work aimed to build on current insight and if possible, verify that the feedback mechanism is a viable method. After consideration on different ways to solve the research question, the choice fell on creating a test environment where the approach was tested. The test environment was used to investigate if a network orchestration system could be integrated with a feedback mechanism. The result of this project presents a way to automatically de- tect a network failure and send feedback to a Network Service Orchestrator. The or- chestrator is then able to identify and correct the error.
