Virtual Network Function Manager
Ribbon's VNF Manager (VNFM) is a generic VNF management framework managing lifecycle management of multiple Ribbon and third party VNFs. It enables seamless interworking with different network orchestrators and virtualization infrastructure managers via open APIs to ensure elastic scalability of VNF’s based on dynamic network load and/or provisioning state.
