           Gap Analysis on Network Virtualization Activities
            draft-irtf-nfvrg-gaps-network-virtualization-00

Abstract

   The main goal of this document is to serve as a survey of the
   different efforts that have been taken and are currently taking place
   at IETF and IRTF in regards to network virtualization, automation and
   orchestration, putting them into context considering efforts by other
   SDOs, and identifying current gaps and challenges that can be tackled
   at IETF or researched at the IRTF.
