Software Defined Networks and Network Functions Virtualization Workshop ‘‘Challenges, Opportunities and Potential Impact’’

Organized by Telecoms working group of SYSTEMATIC, May 19th, 2014 From 09:00 to 17:30

The SDN and NFV workshop, organized by Systematic Paris Region, a French competitive cluster, gathers scientists from academia and industry to debate and address challenges, opportunities and the possible impact network programmability and abstraction will have on communications technologies and information networking in the information society.

Software Defined Networking/Networks and Network Functions Virtualization are emerging paradigms that can revolutionize how service and network strata cooperate via network abstractions and programmability. By separating network management, control and forwarding, they ensure loose coupling of service and network strata and transform network services provisioning and management. A major expectation around SDN and NFV is the reduction of network management complexity and operational costs.

The Workshop is inviting key European and French projects, academics and industry directly involved in SDN research and technology developments to present their views, objectives, methodologies and results. The speakers will present their accomplishments, unresolved challenges and remaining hurdles to embed SDN and NFV features in future networks.

The workshop focuses on the SDN and NFV principles, related technologies and architectures through the projects presentations and key notes. A business analysis will shed some light on opportunities for (and impact on) stake holders. This view will be complemented by a presentation on standardization efforts (especially ESTI and ONF) and regulation issues.

The workshop will also present how open source initiatives and tools and open platforms are enabling SDN and NFV. Recent initiatives such as OpenDaylight, OpenContrail or Neutron/OpenStack are already becoming de-facto references for application developers and creating an application-defined networking paradigm.

The workshop is an opportunity to share views and debate the transformation and the future of the network with a focus on the complementary and independent SDN and NVF paradigms.
