Microservices Builder & Library
The MSActivator™ is a multi-tenant, full lifecycle management framework developed for agile service design and assurance, making automation and lifecycle service orchestration (LSO) not only possible - but easy. Microservices are configuration objects which control any features on a managed equipment. Microservices are designed on the fly using the Microservice Builder.
The Microservices Builder is an open Integrated Development Environment (IDE). It provides network engineers with the ability to graphically design their own microservices libraries without any software development expertise. New libraries can be loaded onto the MSActivator™, even in operation, without performing system upgrades.
Each microservice calls out its own set of methods through which vendor-specific operations are implemented:
Create Read Update Delete Import
The specific communication protocol to be used for each device (CLI, Netconf, API, etc.) can be selected from the Editor. The Microservice Builder provides cross referencing between Microservices through control of variable attributes, hence expanding the system’s modeling capability and agility.
The library is the repository for the designed Microservices, as well as those resulting from the import method. Through the latter method, the MSActivator™ solves the notorious industry gap between inventory system data and in-operation configuration and parameters. The import method enables configuration discovery, remediation, and brownfield deployment scenarios.
OBMF and Microservices
- Open IDE to ease the onboarding and management of any new feature for any vendor without any development skills
- Configuration discovery and remediation
- Dynamically built GUIs
- Expose a generic API for integration with 3rd-party systems
Any feature can be managed by a microservice, for example:
- Interface management
- VLANStatic routing
- Dynamic routing
- Policy-based routing
- Firewall policy management
- IPS policy management
- Content filtering policy management
- URL filtering policy management
