Using Software-Defined WAN Implementation to Turn on Advanced Connectivity Services in OpenStack

OpenStack Neutron is the networking component of the OpenStack architecture that enables network virtualization (NV). It enables the creation of overlay networks that are decoupled from the underlying network hardware and runs independently on top of a physical network. But it is often not enough for an enterprise or a telco to deploy OpenStack for networking using standard Open vSwitch, Linux Bridge, or the standard ML2 plugin.

This session will illustrate the integration of SDN with OpenStack - how they work together and why they need to work together to provide connectivity services such as Service Chaining, SDDC, SD-WAN and WAN optimization, as well as security services such as Firewall and Intrusion detection. Attendees will learn: (a) Differences between SDN and NFV (b) How OpenStack enable SDN and NFV to easily work together (c) Typical Challenges encountered and how they can be overcome / mitigated and (d) Use case of a large Tier 1 telco
