Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) will drive dramatic cost reductions while also accelerating service delivery. Using NFV with SDN, network owners can provision new functions rapidly on demand, improve scalability, and leverage microservices. Benefits like these will make NFV indispensable for service providers, mobile operators, telcos, and enterprises alike. Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) with a Touch of SDN is the first practical introduction to NFV’s fundamental concepts, techniques, and use cases. Written for wide audiences of network engineers, architects, planners, and operators, it assumes no previous knowledge of NFV architecture, deployment, or management. The authors first explain how virtualization, VMs, containers, and related technologies establish the foundation for the NFV transformation. Next, they show how these concepts and technologies can be applied to virtualize network functions in the cloud, data centers, routing, security, and the mobile packet core. You’ll discover new tools and techniques for managing and orchestrating virtualized network devices, and gain new clarity on how SDN and NFV interact and interrelate. By the time you’re done, you’ll be ready to assess vendor claims, evaluate architectures, and plan NFV’s role in your own networks. Understand NFV’s key benefits and market drivers Review how virtualization makes NFV possible Consider key issues associated with NFV network design and deployment Integrate NFV into existing network designs Orchestrate, build, and deploy NFV networks and cloud services Maximize operational efficiency by building more programmable, automated networks Understand how NFV and SDN work together Address security, programmability, performance, and service function chaining Preview evolving concepts that will shape NFV’s future

This book constitutes the joint refereed proceedings of the 17th International Conference on Next Generation Wired/Wireless Advanced Networks and Systems, NEW2AN 2017, the 10th Conference on Internet of Things and Smart Spaces, ruSMART 2017. The 71 revised full papers presented were carefully reviewed and selected from 202 submissions. The papers of NEW2AN focus on advanced wireless networking and applications; lower-layer communication enablers; novel and innovative approaches to performance and efficiency analysis of ad-hoc and machine-type systems; employed game-theoretical formulations, Markov chain models, and advanced queuing theory; grapheme and other emerging material, photonics and optics; generation and processing of signals; and business aspects. The ruSMART papers deal with fully-customized applications and services. The NsCC Workshop papers capture the current state-of-the-art in the field of molecular a nd nanoscale communications such as information, communication and network theoretical analysis of molecular and nanonetwork, mobility in molecular and nanonetworks; novel and practical communication protocols; routing schemes and architectures; design/engineering/evaluation of molecular and nonoscale communication systems; potential applications and interconnections to the Internet (e.g. the Internet of Nano Things).

Software Defined Networking (SDN): Anatomy of OpenFlow Volume I

Software Defined Networking is revolutionizing the networking world. While the industry transitions to a software-centric architecture, a clear definition of SDN remains murky at best. This book clarifies the current industry confusion about what SDN is, why it's important, and most importantly the protocols and use cases that define SDN. OpenFlow (OF) is a critical piece of the SDN puzzle. While SDN solutions exist that do not require OF, it is undeniable that OF helped spur the innovation in SDN. The history of OF, its current and future status, and the associated use cases will be explained in detail in this book. Lastly, the book attempts to lay out SDN deployments that are real and current today, and apply practicality to the vast world of SDN architectures.

Network Function Virtualization provides an architectural, vendor-neutral level overview of the issues surrounding the large levels of data storage and transmission requirements needed for today's companies, also enumerating the benefits of NFV for the enterprise. Drawing upon years of practical experience, and using numerous examples and an easy-to-understand framework, authors Tom Nadeau and Ken Gary discuss the relevancy of NFV and how it can be effectively used to create and deploy new services. Readers will learn how to determine if network function virtualization is right for their enterprise network, be able to use hands-on, step-by-step guides to design, deploy, and manage NFV in an enterprise, and learn how to evaluate all relevant NFV standards, including ETSI, IETF, Openstack, and Open Daylight. Provides a comprehensive overview of Network Function Virtualization (NFV) Discusses how to determine if network function virtualization is right for an enterprise network Presents an ideal reference for those interested in NFV Network Service Chaining, NSC network address translation (NAT), firewalling, intrusion detection, domain name service (DNS), caching, and software defined networks Includes hands-on, step-by-step guides for designing, deploying, and managing NFV in the enterprise Explains, and contrasts, all relevant NFV standards, including ETSI, IETF, Openstack, and Open Daylight
