Deploying Openslice in multi domain scenarios

A typical deployment across domains, involves today some typical components: i) an OSS/BSS to allow customers access the service catalog and perform service orders, ii) a Service Orchestrator (SO) component for executing the service order workflow, as well as iii) a Network Functions Virtualization Orchestrator (NFVO) for configuring the iv) network resources.

The following figure shows how openslice could be used in such scenarios:
