         ALTO-based Broker-assisted Multi-domain Orchestration
                draft-lachosrothenberg-alto-brokermdo-02

Abstract

   Evolving networking scenarios (e.g., 5G) demand new multiple
   administrative domain (aka multi-domain) orchestration models.  This
   document proposes a new broker-plane approach working on top of per-
   domain management and orchestration functions to coordinate the
   delivery of a multi-operator End-to-End Network Service (E2ENS).
   This proposed design resorts to the Application-Layer Traffic
   Optimization (ALTO) protocol to offer topology and resource
   information from different administrative domains.  The ALTO services
   with the proposed protocol extension offer aggregated views on
   various types of resources contributing to a more simple and scalable
   solution.

1.  Introduction

   Envisioned 5G network architectures and related service models
   consider broader cooperation between stakeholders in order to provide
   flexible multi-operator multi-domain services.  These multi-provider
   orchestration operations will require the information exchange across
   Multi-domain Orchestrators (MdOs).  The key information to be
   exchanged between MdOs includes the abstract network topology,
