Title: NRG Meeting: Network Functions Virtualization (Nabeel Akhtar)
Network Functions Virtualization
Presenter: Nabeel Akhtar
Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) has recently attracted much
attention worldwide . Academia and industry have come to regard it as a
promising candidate for the Future Networks, along with Software Defined
Networking. According to NFV concept, network functions such as network
address translation, firewall, and load balancing, which were previously
actualized through dedicated physical devices, will be completely or
partially implemented in software, that can run on a range of industry
standard server hardware, and that can be moved to, or instantiated in,
various locations in the network as required, without the need for
installation of new equipments.
NFV Industrial Standard Group (NFV ISG), originally proposed by European
Telecommunication Standards Institute (ETSI) in October 2012, has grown
over 150 companies, including 28 service providers.
In this talk, I will present NFV and how it can be applied to not only
current Internet, but also to the Future Internet. I will talk about few
service models and high-level use cases, which represent important service
models and initial fields of application for NFV. I will also talk about
how to support NFV using our new network architecture - RINA.
