Service orchestration is an essential activity in modern networks. It performs optimal resource allocation and provisions services in an effective sequence based on demands across a collection of physical or virtual network functions (P/VNF). This paper summarizes several orchestration environments and components along with their evolution towards 5G. A brief operational comparison of platforms such as OSM MANO, OPNFV and ONAP have been presented, along with different deployment models and architectural alternatives.
