Brocade Flow Optimizer

This demo highlights the Brocade Flow Optimizer and the various use cases addressed to solve real network performance challenges. The Flow Optimizer is an SDN policy based app that provides customers proactive visibility to gain insight into network traffic, and allows them to detect & manager large Layer 2-Layer 4 traffic flows. Customers can use this app to increase network efficiency through better network capacity planning and resource utilization, mitigate network attacks, and eliminate network congestion through policy based traffic engineering thereby improving overall customer experience.

Live Analysis of Video Feeds Utilizing Edge NFV – Enabling New Business Services for IoT with NFV

Based on an open NFV platform, this demo highlights how a CCTV solution featuring a comprehensive set of enhanced functions can be quickly and efficiently introduced on top of existing network infrastructure using standard, open-source orchestration tools (OpenStack). The demo underpins the potential of NFV to enable service providers to create new managed service offerings.

Global SDN Deployment Powered by Onos  opensourceasterisk

Featuring an effective migration strategy for Service Providers, this demo focuses on introducing SDN islands in existing brownfield deployments. SDN-IP, running as an application on ONOS, enables these SDN islands to peer seamlessly with the rest of the legacy network. Over time, the provider can extend the footprint of the SDN island and eventually migrate to an all-SDN environment.

Multilayer SDN Control of Packet and Optical Networks  opensourceasterisk

Service providers currently operate and manage packet and optical networks in silos, resulting in over-provisioning and under-utilization of these networks and lack of agility. This demo showcases the converged SDN control of packet and optical networks with ONOS to optimize utilization of these networks based on availability, economics and policy. In a first-of-its-kind effort at ONS, the demo also brings together optical hardware from three vendors to showcase effective SDN control with ONOS across a diversity of data plane devices and technologies.

Active Path SDN Adaptive Quality of Service

Kemp will showcase the integration of network infrastructure level intelligence coupled with application centric load balancing and quality of service (QoS) controls to prioritize application flow traffic of high importance through the SDN network. By showing a video stream from one server without SDN Adaptive QoS turned on, this demo will then introduce the typical East-West traffic (server-to-server) to show the impact. The scenario will then be repeated with SDN Adaptive QoS turned on for a side-by-side comparison.

Multi-Site, Multi-Domain Data Center Capacity Management  opensourceasterisk

This proof-of-concept (PoC) demonstrates the ability of a network under SDN control to respond dynamically to Elephant Flows both at the Packet and Optical Layers. In the context of an unscheduled Data Centre VM Migration that needs to be completed immediately, this demo will showcase two use cases.

In the Packet Layer Use Case, the SDN Controller senses congestion and signals the packet device to use low-priority links in conjunction with QoS to provide the Elephant Flow minimum bandwidth guarantee, and the Optical device remains unchanged. In the Optical Layer Use Case, due to the absence of packet-layer resources, the SDN controller redirects the Elephant Flow to the lower-priority ODU2 links being used.

Project Aspen will demonstratre the world’s first implementation of the ONF NBI specification for real-time media (RTM) applications. This showcase will feature an integrated stack of purely open-source components working together to provide an automatically provisioned QoS-protected network path. The key component is the VTN-based RTM network service that translates between the ONF RTM interface and the virtual tenant network (VTN) interface.

CORD: Central Office Re-architected as Datacenter

CORD re-architects the Telco Central Office as a Datacenter to bring in cloud-style economies of scale and agility to operator networks. It takes today’s proprietary boxes, determines how their functions can be aggregated or disaggregated, and instantiates them on commodity infrastructure. In addition to virtualized network functions, the CORD demo also includes virtualization of three legacy network devices common to today’s access network, refactored as software running on (and controlling) commodity servers, white-box switches and merchant silicon I/O blades. The resulting software is then organized as an interconnected set of elastic and scalable services, all managed by open source software – specifically ONOS, OpenStack, and XOS – to unify SDN, NFV, and the Cloud under a common, intuitive, carrier-grade framework.

Integrating NFV Orchestration with OpenVIM  opensourceasterisk

This showcase focuses on addressing the real pain points of service providers who need to orchestrate and automate the full lifecycle of VNFs and service chains of a variety of VNFs (such as DPI, Firewall and VPN) that are often requested by tenants for a given network path. The solution demonstrates that an existing MANO system can take advantage of the high-speed, high-performance NFV infrastructure that OpenVIM provides.

Benchmarking the SDN Switch

Understanding, deploying, and managing SDN in today’s networks gives more control to operators, and opens up new ways to understand and manage network performance.

This showcase will demonstrate that SDN can run at a 100 Gig line rate, with circuits enforced, queueing works at congestions and millions of flows covering multi million address spaces added to the flow table.
