Title:  SDN and NFV - towards more flexible, programmable, agile, and robust future network design

Abstract: Software Defined Networking (SDN) together with Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) radically changes the way how networks will be designed, managed and operated. SDN together with NFV introduces much more flexibility into modern network architectures and protocols, because they allow a new degree of network programmability both at the control as well as the data plane. This enables the automation of many complex network management tasks, with the goals to reduce complexity, while increasing agility and robustness at the same time. In this talk, we highlight some of our research results in the area of SDN and NFV. First, we introduce CloudMAC, which processes WiFi MAC layer frames as an NFV service in commodity data centers and uses SDN for flexible traffic forwarding to solve the mobility problem in enterprise WLANs. Second, we demonstrate how SDN can be used to develop more resilient network protocols. Finally, we show how to analyze the cost of robustness in order to cope with uncertain resource demands when trying to optimally place network functions in an NFV infrastructure.
