General instructions and main steps

The 5GTANGO system consists of the Service Platform for deploying and orchestrating services and the Service Development Kit to create deployable service packages. For running services, the Service Platform uses the capabilities of a VIM (virtual infrastructure manager), specifically OpenStack. In order to use the Service Platform, you therefore need to have access to a running OpenStack installation.

In general, the main steps to install a working 5GTANGO system are as follows:

  1. Install the Service Platform
  2. Install the VnV
  3. Install the Service Development Kit
  4. Install the Emulator for testing purposes
  5. Install OpenStack (or get access to an existing installation).
  6. Connect the Service Platform to OpenStack

The goal of the 5GTANGO SDK is to assist the developer in designing services and/or functions. The SDK is mainly composed by a set of CLI tools, each with a specific purpose following the development workflow.

The 5GTANGO SDK tools are supposed to be locally installed on the developer’s machine. They are based on Python3 and can be installed using pip.
