Extending OpenFlow for stateful flow processing and in-switch packet generation

Fabian Schneider | Dissemination Work Package Leader | BEBA project

Senior Researcher | NEC

 
 

 

BEBA is a European H2020 project on data plane of software defined networks (SDN).

BEBA aims at revisiting the foundation of Software Defined Networking by designing and assessing new platform-agnostic data plane programming abstractions which support stateful reconfiguration of forwarding rules at wire speed and on the basis of packet-level events.

MEF LSO SEMINAR
LIFECYCLE SERVICE ORCHESTRATION FROM SPECIFICATION TO IMPLEMENTATION
(Yangzte 1)

 
 

 

 
 

 

MEF is the driving force enabling Third Network services for the digital economy and the hyper-connected world. The Third Network concept combines the agility and ubiquity of the Internet with the assurance and security of CE 2.0 (Carrier Ethernet 2.0). Third Network services provide an on-demand, orchestrated, and assured experience with user-directed control over network resources and cloud connectivity. Third Network services are delivered over automated, virtualized, and interconnected networks powered by LSO, SDN, NFV, and CE 2.0.

MEF leverages its global 210+ network operators and technology vendor community, builds upon the robust $80 billion Carrier Ethernet market, and provides a practical evolution to the Third Network with LSO, SDN, and NFV implementations that build upon a CE 2.0 foundation.

MEF's Lifecycle Service Orchestration: Enabling Dynamic Third Network Services

Johan Witters | Co-Chair, EMEA Marketing | MEF

IP Regional PLM for evolution of business services to SDN and NFV | Nokia

 
 

 

The MEF is focused on enabling dynamic Third Network services for the digital economy and the hyper-connected world, providing businesses an on-demand, cloud-connected, secure, and assured experience. The MEF provides a practical evolution toward interconnected, orchestrated, and automated networks powered by LSO (Lifecycle Service Orchestration), SDN, and NFV implementations.

 
 

 

This presentation will explain how LSO is the critical enabler of automated and virtualized networks built with SDN and NFV. Currently, Service providers need LSO capabilities and supporting API to overcome OSS and BSS obstacles that prevent them from realizing the full benefits of SDN & NFV technologies. LSO encompasses all network domains that require coordinated inter-operator end-to-end management and control to deliver on-demand cloud connectivity services and to assure their overall quality and security.

Highlights:
- Enterprise business drivers for on-demand, agile, automated, cloud-connected connectivity services
- Enabling services innovation by leveraging the global Carrier Ethernet services footprint, adding LSO (Lifecycle Services Orchestration), SDN and NFV
- Dynamic services development: Not a greenfield play – protecting investments through a practical roadmap
- LSO and the pending impact on operator wholesale businesses

MEF's Open Initiative: From Specification to Implementation

Pascal Menezes | Chief Technology Officer | MEF

 
 

 

The MEF is providing the specification framework and the open implementation environment that allows for agile collaboration.

This collaboration is best demonstrated within the context of two new MEF open initiatives: OpenCS (Open Connectivity Services) and OpenLSO (Open Lifecycle Service Orchestration). OpenCS is a network ecosystem that enables SDN and NFV reference implementations of open source software and open spec hardware for MEF-defined services. OpenLSO is an orchestration ecosystem that enables a reference implementation of open source solutions and interfaces that adheres to the MEF LSO Reference Architecture.

This presentation will describe the MEF's Open Initiatives and how they have re-invented the development of technical specifications. Attendees will learn about the different MEF Open Initiatives and how they will be referenced and used by a broad section of the service provider market.

 

12:15

MEF's Open Connectivity Services Use Cases: Implementation Guides to Third Network Services

Claudio Scola | Director, Product Marketing, Global Network Services | Level 3 Communications

 
 

 

OpenCS (Open Connectivity Services) is a MEF-facilitated ecosystem that develops reference implementations of segments of MEF-defined Third Network services using any combination of open and/or closed software, open spec hardware, commercial devices (e.g. CE 2.0 certified devices), SDN and NFV. Open source code used in OpenCS projects is sourced from upstream projects.

Different groups of MEF members are working on multiple OpenCS use case instances that represent the services under the control of a specific network operator but which are orchestrated as part of a federated system initiated by a Third Network service provider. Within the OpenCS ecosystem, companies are developing and testing reference designs of MEF-defined L1-L7 services using combinations of open and closed source software, open specification and commercial hardware (e.g. Carrier Ethernet 2.0 certified devices), SDN, and NFV via MEF's LSO Presto Network Resources Provisioning (NRP) APIs.

This presentation will cover the different OpenCS Use Cases being developed by MEF members in collaboration with open and closed source projects and demonstrate how they contribute to the delivery of the Third Network vision.
