ManSDN/NFV Keynote

Test in the new world of softwarization

Pierre Lynch (Lead Technologist, Product Management, Ixia, Vice-Chair TST working group, ETSI NFV ISG)
Along with multiple benefits, the softwarization of networking has multiple impacts on the organization, the operational mindset and the implementation of networking for the future. The presentation will look into how the test function will fit into a software-based networking paradigm. We will outline how test fits into the paradigm, touching on concepts like Devops and CI/CD, as well as more traditional testing models adapted to NFV and SDN. It will also discuss our experience in the differences encountered when testing in a virtual environment, and will detail concrete factors to consider with the platform, the test devices and the configuration when designing the test strategy.

GISN Keynote

Energy efficient cloud networks

Prof. Jaafar Elmirghani (University of Leeds, UK)
Cloud computing is expected to be a major factor that will dominate the future Internet service model. This talk summarizes our work on energy efficiency for cloud networks. We describe a framework for studying the energy efficiency of four cloud services in IP over WDM networks: cloud content delivery, storage as a service (StaaS), and virtual machines (VMS) placement for processing applications and infrastructure as a service (IaaS). Our approach is based on the co-optimization of both external network related factors such as whether to geographically centralize or distribute the clouds, the influence of users' demand distribution, content popularity, access frequency and renewable energy availability and internal capability factors such as the number of servers, switches and routers as well as the amount of storage demanded in each cloud. Our investigation of the different energy efficient approaches uses Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MILP) models and real time heuristics.
