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. Lastly, this presentation will also review a prior PoC that implemented inter-DC SFC using BGPVPN technology.
The Telecom/NFV track is brought to you by OpenStack and OPNFV.
The audience is anyone who is interested in SFC technologies. Attendees can expect a detailed review of technology analysis of both BGPVPN and NSH that can enable SFC use cases. Attendees can also expect a landscaping of SFC / BGPVPN / NSH related projects in open source communities such as OPNFV, OpenStack and Open Daylight. In addition, attendees can also benefit from the introduction of a PoC that implemented inter-DC SFC using BGPVPN technology, and expectation from an end user perspective.
