Using a Service VM as an IPv6 vRouter

IPv6-enabled OPNFV is a meta-distribution of platform with de-facto provisioning and configuration of IPv6, upon which test harness, additional components and functional blocks and/or tools can be built and integrated. This presentation will review a gap analysis with IPv6 features in OpenStack and Open Daylight, and a novel use case of supporting the capability of an IPv6 vRouter on a VM in OpenStack + Open Daylight environment. The VM is capable of (1) advertising IPv6 Router Advertisements (RA) to the VMs on the internal network; and (2) IPv6 Forwarding (i.e., North-South traffic). This novel use case expands IPv6 vRouter capability to any VM and allows for any 3rd-party solution, e.g. IPv6 vRouter VNF, as an alternative of Neutron Router or ODL Router. Thus it enables open innovation. Various aspects in deployment, configuration, operation, and the potentials of new business scenarios will be described.


The Telecom/NFV track is brought to you by OpenStack and OPNFV.

What can I expect to learn?

The audience is anyone who is interested in learning how to best leverage IPv6 capability in OpenStack environment, especially when OpenStack is integrated with other SDN Controllers in real-world deployment. Attendees can expect a detailed review of gap analysis of use case with OpenStack and Open Daylight, and how to configure this novel use case to use a service VM as an IPv6 vRouter, its related user stories, and business scenarios enabled by IPv6 platform, current state and expectation of evolution to address the challenges.
