As manual Management and Orchestration (MANO) of services and resources might delay the execution of MANO operations and negatively impact the performance of 5G and beyond Vehicle-to-Everything (V2X) services, applying AI in MANO to enable automation and intelligence is an imperative. The Network Function Virtualization (NFV), Software Defined Networking (SDN), and Artificial Intelligence (AI), could all together mitigate those challenges, and enable true automation in MANO operations. Thus, in this demo paper we will showcase the use of real-life testbed environments (Smart Highway and Virtual Wall, Belgium) and the Proof-of-concept that we build to conduct realistic experimentation and validation of intelligent and distributed MANO in a dynamic network such as a V2X system.
