Service chaining plays an important role in network function virtualization by stitching together an ordered list of virtual network functions, such as routers, firewalls, load balancers etc., to achieve a particular complex service that previously required multiple physical appliances. This presentation will review and analyze two major technologies that enable service function chaining, i.e. NSH-based SFC and BGPVPN-based SFC, followed by current status of various projects addressing SFC, MPLS / BGP VPN, and related APIs in OPNFV, OpenStack and Open Daylight. A detailed review of technologies of both BGPVPN and NSH that can enable diverse SFC use cases is expected, as well as a landscaping of SFC / BGPVPN / NSH related projects in open source communities. Lastly, this presentation will also review a prior PoC that implemented inter-DataCenter SFC using BGPVPN technology.
