5G will not simply be an evolution of mobile broadband networks as its predecessors, but will open the door to unique service capabilities, calling for new business models. In this context, Software Dened Networks (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) are technologies that will shape the evolution of the telecom sector with new network capabilities and business opportunities. The ultimate goal is to increase the level of programmability, control and  exibility of net- works, while reducing network operation costs and provide platforms for the validation and verication of network services. Towards addressing these challenges, this paper provides insights of the 5GTANGO Manage- ment and Orchestration (MANO) framework, along with insight from its building blocks and project achievements.
