Transport Agnostic - capability is achieved by splitting the control/management ‘planes’ from the data ‘plane’, using software defined networking (SDN) mechanisms to dynamically redirect traffic to the best transport, as opposed to having control/management/data on the same ‘plane’. The users/edge devices delegate (are agnostic) the tasks of assigning transport addresses/routes/protocols/mechanisms are used. From a security point of view, users/edge never access the control/management ‘planes’!

Cognitive Network (CN)

In communication networks, cognitive network is a new type of data network that makes use of cutting edge technology from several research areas to solve some problems current networks are faced with. Cognitive network is different from cognitive radio as it covers all the layers of the OSI model. Cognitive Network | Wikipedia

Virtual network architecture that allows enterprises to leverage any combination of transport services to securely connect users to applications. SD-WAN simplifies the management and operation of a WAN by decoupling the networking hardware from its control mechanism. This concept is similar to how software-defined networking implements virtualization technology to improve data center management and operation. Wikipedia

Towards application aware networking
Featuring: Beth Cohen, NFV/SDN Network Product Strategy, Verizon SD-WAN is the first step towards application aware networking, but intelligent networking is still very much in its infancy. Not only do telecoms networks need to respond to the applications they run, but the applications themselves need to be better at responding to the network. Meanwhile, work continues at a rapid rate to minimize the number of NFVi architectures available and make their compatibility with VNFs more straightforward and faster for CSPs to implement.

Evolution of SDN in Google’s Network Infrastructure- Vijoy Pandey
OpenDaylight Project Evolution of Software Defined Networking in Google’s Network Infrastructure - Vijoy Pandey, Google Google has long been a pioneer in distributed computing and data processing, and we’ve known that great computing infrastructure like this requires great networking technology. For the past decade we have been building our own network hardware and software to connect all of the servers in our datacenters together, and also to connect our datacenters with each other, with Software Defined Networking principles in mind. This talk walks through the evolution of Google’s SDN-based networking infrastructure, from building an SDN-based WAN (B4), to allocating wide area bandwidth amongst thousands of individual applications based on centralized policy management (BwE), to creating building-scale data center fabrics (Jupiter). We will discuss how technologies were cross leveraged in building these networks, the operational challenges faced, and the lessons learned. Vijoy Pandey is Head of Engineering ​for Data Center Fabrics and Inter Data Center Backbone Networks at Google. He ​works on SDN and data center, cloud and backbone network architectures looking out 18 months+​, and​ leads ​the ​team responsible for the design, engineering​,​ deployment ​& operations of ​these networks. Prior to Google, he was the CTO of Networking​ at IBM where he led the technical vision & system architecture for IBM System Networking. He was previously the CTO and Director Engineering of a startup, Blade Networking Technologies (BNT) which was acquired by IBM. Before that has held various leadership and management roles in switching, security, and application delivery controller companies & startups. Vijoy holds an undergraduate degree in Computer Science from the Indian Institute of Technology, and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Davis.

Large Scale Overlay Networks with OVN Problems and Solutions
OVN is the SDN solution provided by OVS community. In this presentation, we will have a deep dive on how we scale OVN in eBays private cloud environment to support VMs and nested workloads (k8s containers) on overlay networks. The presentation will focus on the scaling pain points of SDN and how we solved the problems by improving and tuning OVN.

Network Functions Virtualization (NFV)

Youtube search... ...Google search

NFV or Virtual Network Function (VNF) allows network operators to manage and expand their network capabilities on demand using virtual, software based applications where physical boxes once stood in the network architecture. This makes it easier to load-balance, scale up and down, and move functions across distributed hardware resources. With continual updates, operators can keep things running on the latest software without interruption to their customers. On the road to NFV deployment | Ericsson

For example, a virtual session border controller could be deployed to protect a network without the typical cost and complexity of obtaining and installing physical network protection units. Other examples of NFV include virtualized load balancers, firewalls, intrusion detection devices and WAN accelerators. ...The NFV framework consists of three main components:

  1. Virtualized network functions (VNFs) are software implementations of network functions that can be deployed on a network functions virtualization infrastructure (NFVI).
  2. Network functions virtualization infrastructure (NFVI) is the totality of all hardware and software components that build the environment where NFVs are deployed. The NFV infrastructure can span several locations. The network providing connectivity between these locations is considered as part of the NFV infrastructure.
  3. Network functions virtualization management and orchestration architectural framework (NFV-MANO Architectural Framework) is the collection of all functional blocks, data repositories used by these blocks, and reference points and interfaces through which these functional blocks exchange information for the purpose of managing and orchestrating NFVI and VNFs.

The building block for both the NFVI and the NFV-MANO is the NFV platform. In the NFVI role, it consists of both virtual and physical processing and storage resources, and virtualization software. Network function virtualization | Wikipedia

Dynamic Service Chaining for SDN NFV
Kishore Inampudi, A10 Networks In talk focus on framework for dynamic L4-L7 services in NFV/SDN environments. The modern service provider and data center networks demand cloud delivery model for agile and cost-effective rollout of services for revenue generation. There are some proposals to incorporate service insertion in the emerging SDN and NFV environments. However, the current methods are sub-optimal, complex and inflexible in delivering automated end-to-end service delivery. In a virtualized cloud environment, service delivery requires intelligence in the network for policy-based traffic handling and differentiated services. Dynamic service chaining is a fundamental component in building an on-demand and scalable model for policy enforcement. This session will cover following topics: 1. NFV & Service chaining use cases 2. Challenges with existing solutions 3. Opportunities with dynamic service chaining 4. Policy Enforcement model in SDN/NFV environment 5. Dynamic Service Chaining Architecture & Design considerations 6. Benefits of Dynamic Service Chaining
