Hi Karthi,

It is possible to implement Prime Network without unit server. The AVMs 101 & above where the VNEs for the respective network elements are modeled can be hosted in the Prime Network Gateway server, provided there is enough memory. By this way we can avoid the unit server. But this way of implementation may not scale well & could be suitable only for small networks.
