By separating network functions into software components running on virtualized infrastructure, NFV enables network operators to improve their agility and lower costs. However, the operational benefits offered by NFV architectures are still ultimately limited by the manageability of the infrastructure and network services that are deployed. In this talk we describe OpenConfig, an industry collaboration led by network operators, to simplify the management of network services and infrastructure by developing common APIs for the management plane. The OpenConfig working group started with an initial focus of defining vendor-neutral data models for configuration and telemetry based on real operational use cases. As these models are implemented by infrastructure providers, the costs and delays of introducing new platforms and services into the network will decrease significantly.
