Taking SDN / OpenFlow to your home—Powering content delivery with OpenFlow, ONOS and PicOS - Sudhir Modali, Pica8
OpenFlow not only enables an open networking ecosystem, it also delivers the idea of dynamic granular control. Dynamic (agile) provisioning can enable faster time to new services as well as rapid modification of an existing service. Both are strategic advantages in “point and click” operations. Additionally, specific customer or application traffic can be managed in a scalable manner. Content providers are exploring ONOS (ON.Lab) and Pica8 to develop the first OpenFlow-enabled SDN content delivery network.

Operational Experience Deploying SDN Pods For NFV - Chris Emmons, Verizon
We’ll talk about the vision and learnings in designing & deploying the first handful of production sites for Verizon’s SDN/NFV initiative. This is a large scale (50+ rack) NFV deployment that we started to design in March 2015, and began production in national data centers in December 2015 and into large scale edge and small scale edge sites in 2016 (CORD-like initiatives). Verizon’s pod designs are based on SDN software, whitebox/bright box switching hardware and OpenStack orchestration. The project set a record time from design to deployment in Verizon, and in the NFV ecosystem and the large scale OpenStack ecosystem we believe.

We’ll also discuss our decision to embrace a core-and-pod architecture rather than a big monolithic architecture, optimizations that came from SDN that we put in for both operational and performance reasons, and organizational practices that we learned along the way.

Building Turkey’s Public Safety & Defense on SDN & NFV - Erhan Lokman, Argela
The Turkish Undersecretariat for Defence Industries has recently launched an R&D project with Argela Technologies, namely MILAT, to provide an SDN based infrastructure to realize cybersecurity mechanisms and enable security-sensitive dynamic configuration abilities attuned to the exigence of public safety and commercial entities. Within the MILAT project, SDN & NFV based components (controller, virtual switch, VNFs) will be developed, to be used in public safety and commercial communication infrastructures. In this presentation, the details of the MILAT project will be given, highlighting the innovations made in the security and SDN domains. Attendees can also expect a glimpse into the SDN & NFV solutions to be deployed in public safety and telco networks in the next 2-5 years.

SDN Enabled Virtual EPC - Ariel Noy, HPE
A major consideration during the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) architecture design was to provide a functional split between MME, P/S-GW elements so that the mobility management (control) and packet/user plane forwarding functions. Since the development of the EPC architecture and deployment of 4G networks, the amount of traffic, number of devices has exploded. One of the solutions for implementing a next generation S-GW and P-GW uses SDN and NFV technology to split the function further into S/P-GW-Control and S/P-GW-User Plane respectively. This type of implementation leverages the original EPC design philosophy regarding data/control decoupling so that the functions within the gateways can scale independently. This session will provide insights on why this architecture is extremely suitable for 5G and also for cost-effectively growing current EPC infrastructure.

TouSIX first OpenFlow European IXP - Marc Bruyere, CNRS
The Internet eXchange Points (IXP) are essential for the Internet evolution as they empower high bandwidth low latency and inexpensive local traffic peering as opposed to transit traffic.
OpenFlow SDN enables more dynamic network programmability to control network behavior via open interfaces, as opposed to the legacy closed-box solutions and proprietary-defined interfaces.
This proposed presentation is about the migration of the TouIX from a traditional to a full OpenFlow IXP. It especially describes how switches have been selected, configured and installed, and presents the TouSIX-Manager tools that have been developed for the IXP fabric robustness and members benefit.
TouIX is a non-profit neutral Internet eXchange Point organization founded in 2005. It provides an interconnected network infrastructure at 4 PoPs around the city of Toulouse and the Paris FranceIX and LyonIX IXPs.
