Abstract: Network softwarization drives innovation both in software and hardware. This demo introduces a highly integrated environment that enables open source solutions for soft-ware defined network (SDN) in both hardware and software. This environment is built upon the NetFPGA platform for rapid prototyping of networking devices. It showcases tools (OSNT and OFLOPS) for evaluating the performance of net-working devices, and demonstrates them using a pipelined multi-table OpenFlow enabled switch application. An open-source environment integrating both software and hardware that fully inter-operate, as demonstrated here, is essential for high-quality software defined networking solutions

Abstract: This demonstration focuses on the interaction between the service and the orchestrator, presenting an access control service which upon successful authentication and authorization triggers deployment of a new service for the authenticated user.

Abstract: NetSLS brings together MaxiNet, a highly scalable emulator for software-defined networks, and SLS, a simulator for benchmarking Hadoop Job schedulers.

The NetSLS demo shows how to emulate a whole cluster of Hadoop workers and the corresponding network infrastructure on only very few physical resources. This allows for testing novel job schedulers with a realistic network model as well as testing novel routing algorithms under realistic Hadoop workload.

With this work, the interdependency between the network and the jobs running on top of it can be included into the evaluation of new ideas, leveraging research on big-data applications with joint job and flow scheduling.

NetIDE: removing vendor lock-in in SDN

E. Rojas, Telcaria Ideas S.L., Spain
C. Guerrero, IMDEA Networks, Spain

Abstract: The objective of the demonstration is to show two of the NetIDE framework benefits:

  • an Integrated Development Environment: one single tool to manage the whole life-cycle of a Network Application: from the design, to the implementation, deployment and testing;
  • Network Application re-usability and portability: Network Applications written for many different controller frameworks, e.g. implemented in the past for different environments/needs, can be re-used and executed on top of the controller framework that is currently managing a given network infrastructure or, on the other way around, a well-tested Network Application can be ported and executed “as is” on a second network controlled by another controller framework.

Offloading personal security applications to a secure and trusted network node

Abstract: The current device-centric protection model against security threats has serious limitations from the final user perspective, among the other the necessity to keep each device updated with the latest security updates and the necessity to replicate all the security polices across all devices. In our model, the protection is decoupled from the users’ terminals and it is provided through a Trusted Virtual Domain (TVD) instantiated in future edge routers. The demo will show the architecture of a Network Edge Device (NED) augmented with a software that allows for the deployment of the user security applications in a trusted virtual domain; the demo will take place simulating a typical use case scenario with two user connecting to the NED, verifying its trustworthiness, authenticating and deploying the VMs enforcing their security policies.

Experimental Demonstration of Virtual Network Controller for Abstraction and Control of Multi-tenant Multi-technology Transport Networks

Raul Muñoz, Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya, Spain
Ramon Casellas, Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya, Spain
Ricardo Martínez, Centre Tecnològic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya, Spain

Abstract: In this demo, we present the Virtual Network Controller (VNC) and the Multi-domain SDN Orchestrator. The VNC allows the deployment of OF-enabled multi-tenant Virtual Networks (VN). Once a requested VN is deployed, it is controlled with a customer SDN controller. The Multi-domain SDN Orchestrator is responsible for the provisioning of end-to-end paths across multi-technology network domains. The VNC interacts with the Multi-domain SDN Orchestrator to provision the requested virtual links.

Abstract: Several Network Operating Systems have been proposed in the last few years for Software Defined Networks; however, only few of them are offering resiliency, scalability and high availability required for production environments. In our demonstration we present a geographically distributed SDN Control Plane, called ICONA, build on top of the Open Networking Operating System (ONOS) and designed to meet the aforementioned Service Providers requirements. During the demo, that runs inside the GEANT OpenFlow pan-European testbed, we show how a Service Provider engineer can easily manage and monitor the network, deploy some services and how ICONA can automatically recover from Control and Data planes failures.
