SDN Controlled VNF Forwarding Graphs Multi-vendor PoC – Lessons Learned - Linda Dunbar, Henry Fourie & Cathy Zhang, Huawei
The presentation will discuss the 2015 ETSI NFV-ONF sponsored proof-of-concept (POC) trial on SDN-Controlled VNF Forwarding Graphs conducted by nine vendors.
The presentation will provide an overview of the use cases of VNF Forwarding Graphs – as outlined in the ETSI GS NFV 001 v1.1.1 (13-10) document, and of how SDN can be used to drive arbitrarily defined individual traffic flows through a series of virtual network functions (VNFs). It will discuss the information model and APIs to express service function chains; the SDN-based technologies to dynamically insert, change or delete service functions (VNFs) for any flows; the considerations of using overlay (e.g., VXLAN) and non-overlay (e.g., OpenFlow) technologies to achieve service function chaining. The rest of the presentation will focus on the lessons learned from the POC trial.

Building Scale-Out Network Solutions Using SDN and High-Performance OpenFlow Forwarding planes - Marc LeClerc, Noviflow

Scale-Out SDN architecture provides an elegant deployment solution for network functions enabling significant reductions in CAPEX and OPEX and massive scalability.  The flexibility of the solution accommodates a wide range of network applications and services, including routing, service chaining, EPC, and load balancing, to name a few.  This same flexibility allows different network elements to scale independently based on a wide variety of characteristics (number of users, forwarding or controller capacity, bandwidth, etc). In this presentation we will explain the Scale-Out SDN architecture,  we will show how we applied the presented principles to build a Scale-Out SDN Router (based on the ATRIUM Project), and we explain how this architecture enables many applications to scale-out to extremely large configuration in simple, modular increments.
