The automatic provisioning of services may be helpful for almost every kind of service because of short service time to market, less TCO, and so on. In NVO3, [RFC7365] and [RFC7364] all have some information on "Auto-provisioning/Service discovery" or "Dynamic Provisioning". Some further information should be helpful to clarify how automatic virtual network/service provisioning can be done in NVO3 partially if total automatic service provisioning is difficult. This document describes the general virtual network provisioning processes and discusses how VN can be automatically provided and related requirements.
