Virtual network functions orchestration in heterogeneous 5G networks

Nikaein, Navid

The demonstration will consist of 2 PoPs (point of presence). One deployed at the SESAME booth and another deployed at the COHERENT both. A remote cloud deployed located at ZHAW premises will also be used. During the demo we plan to the delivery of the following individual services:

  • Cloud-RAN deployment of a  RAN and EPC services based on the OpenAirInterface project [3] over the OpenStack+Julu framework. The service on-boarding will be performed using the Hurtle orchestrator.
  • SDN-based Service Function Chaining between the cloud-deployed VNFs namely Virtual Traffic Classifier (vTC) and Virtual Media Transcoder (vMT). This leverage on both Wifi and LTE technologies in order to deliver connectivity to the end-users.
  • SDN-based functional split in WiFi-based Small Cells with VNF implementing part of the Wifi MAC deployed at edge micro servers. Both data-plane and management plane functions will be considered in this demo.
