About the VIMs Page

To access this page, click Resources > POPs > POP Name > VIMs.

As an SP administrator, you can use the VIMs page to create a virtualized infrastructure manager (VIM) and to view information about VIMs provisioned in the POP. The VIM in a Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) implementation manages the hardware and software resources that the service provider uses to create service chains and deliver network services to customers.

As an OpCo administrator, you can only view details about VIMs, show or hide columns that contain details about VIMs, and search for a specific VIM.
