  • Optimization Model and Algorithm for Dynamic Service-Aware Traffic Steering in Network Functions Virtualization

    Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) has emerged as a paradigm for efficient, flexible and agile network function provisioning. In such NFV-based networks, ensuring network performance and cost efficiency is an important challenge to tackle when network traffic is steered through a chain of virtual network functions (VNF). In this work, we consider the dynamics of traffic demand in different time periods, and multipath routing for minimizing the routing cost in NFV. We focus primarily on optimization models and algorithms for finding a traffic steering solution that effectively splits a demand volume into several flows and selects appropriate links and nodes for these flows. We formulate the problem as a mixed linear integer programming model for obtaining an optimal solution taking into account the dynamics of service demand, multipath routing and service function chaining. For the large scale problem, we propose a heuristic algorithm to find an approximation solution. Particularly, our proposed model and algorithm allows a controller to update a link weight system for effectively steering traffic demand to appropriate nodes in a NFV infrastructure. The evaluation results show that our approach to traffic steering significantly improves a number of major performance metrics including the routing cost, the maximum link utilization, and the accepted demands. In addition, the approximation solution is very close to the optimal solution.

  • Automated Function Placement and Online Optimization of Network Functions Virtualization

    This paper proposes a new fully decentralized approach to online placement and optimization of virtual machines (VMs) for network functions virtualization (NFV). The approach is of practical value, as network services comprising a chain of virtual network functions (VNFs) are proposed to be queued on the basis of leading unexecuted VNFs at every server, rather than on the typical basis of services, reducing queues per server and facilitating queue management and signaling. It is also non-trivial because the VNFs of network services must be executed correctly in order at different VMs, coupling the optimal decisions of VMs on processing or offloading. Exploiting Lyapunov optimization techniques, we decouple the optimal decisions by deriving and minimizing the instantaneous upper bound of the NFV cost in a distributed fashion, and achieve the asymptotically minimum time-average cost. We also reduce the queue length by allowing individual VMs to (un)install VNFs based on local knowledge, achieving stable redeployment of VNFs, adapting to the network topology and the temporal and spatial variations of services. Simulations show that the proposed approach is able to reduce the time-average cost of NFV by 71% and reduce the queue length (or delay) by 74%, as compared with existing approaches.

  • Policy-based dynamic service chaining in Network Functions Virtualization

    Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) enables the rapid development, flexible management, and the dynamic placement of new, innovative Virtualized Network Functions (VNFs), such as load balancers, firewalls, and Intrusion Detection Systems (IDSes). Furthermore, NFV along with Software-Defined Networking (SDN) allows VNFs and physical middleboxes to be dynamically composed into service chaining graphs. Despite these benefits, service chaining graphs can be further improved through the use of techniques that have not been satisfactorily explored yet, such as Policy-Based Network Management (PBNM). In PBNM, policies can be written and triggered during runtime, thus supporting the dynamic (re)configuration of service graphs with minimal disruption. In this paper, we propose an approach to automatically design NFV service chaining graphs based on policies. These policies rule the forwarding of traffic and the construction of service chaining graphs. In our approach, service chaining graphs are enforced dynamically in the network during runtime. Finally, to assess its feasibility and generality, we create two different scenarios to demonstrate and discuss how our solution can be employed and its expected results.

  • On the Feasibility of Using Hierarchical Task Networks and Network Functions Virtualization for Managing Software-Defined Networks

    Management is an essential process to ensure the proper operation of computer networks. There are a lot of proposals to manage software-defined networks (SDN) from their application plane. However, such proposals share some shortcomings related to low automation of network management tasks, long time needed to handle network situations, and the lack of flexibility and workability. In this paper, we introduce JANO to overcome these shortcomings and investigate the feasibility of using automated planning and network functions' virtualization to manage SDN from a vertical management plane. JANO uses hierarchical task networks' planning to generate automatically plans that automate management tasks and reduce the time required by administrators to face network situations. Also, JANO performs an instantiation of the management orchestrator of network functions virtualization to provide flexibility and workability in the generation and execution of plans targeted to addressing network situations. We evaluate JANO in a proof of concept. The evaluation results corroborated that JANO is a feasible solution to manage SDN, since the planning time slightly and linearly increased with the number of primitive tasks that form a plan, the time-consuming needed by administrators to addressing a network situation was short, and the additional traffic was low.

  • The structure of a mobile provider network with network functions virtualization

    Ensuring quality of service for end users of communication networks depends on quality control at all stages of end-to-end service delivery. Today, due to the dynamically changing structure of the services provided to end users, constantly changing requirements to the quality of service indicators and growth of traffic volumes increases, there is a need for highly scalable communication systems, which could meet the needs of end users. This paper describes methods of improving the quality of service of hybrid telecommunication networks, which involve the systematic application of methods for monitoring and managing the process of formation of flows for maintenance and allocation of service resources.

  • On telecommunication architectures: From Intelligent Network to Network Functions Virtualization

    The paper discusses the undergoing network architecture massive transformation, primarily by virtualization and Software Defined Network (SDN) technologies. Network Functions Virtualization consolidates many network equipment types onto industry standard high volume servers, switches, and storage, which could be located in Data Centers, Network Nodes and in the end user premises. However, the question arises: are these concepts implementable from software developer point of view? The future of NFV approach depends on software developer activities. To talk about the NFV destiny, we try to overview the changes in telecom technologies: from ISDN and SS7, as well as All-IP concept, to SDN and its relationship with NFV. The conclusion is devoted to the discussion of NFV future from the software development point of view.

  • Network functions virtualization for flexible deployment of converged optical-wireless access infrastructure

    Existing network infrastructure is very heterogeneous in terms of connectivity options, service types, and user demands. The emergence of new technologies such as 5G mobile networks and Internet of Things introduces the additional degrees of complexity and heterogeneity. It results in more diverse requirements to the separate parts of information and communications systems such as fixed and wireless access networks. In this paper, we propose a new virtualized convergent platform based on software defined network architecture. Proposed platform uses elastic optical network infrastructure with flexible configuration for switching, multiplexing, data Hows distribution and quality of service maintenance. All these parameters are defined by software and dynamically managed by the controller, providing advantaged in terms of the infrastructure utilization efficiency, flexibility, scalability and reliability, and quality of service.
