The SDN/NFV Cloud Computing platform and transport network of the ADRENALINE testbed
This work extends NFV paradigm to transport networks, known as Transport NFV. This paper presents a detailed overview of the SDN/NFV services that are offered on top of the Cloud Computing platform and transport network of the ADRENALINE Testbed.
On the one hand, we propose a generic architecture for SDN/NFV services deployed over multi-domain transport networks and distributed data centers. On the other hand, we present two use cases of possible NFV services: a virtual Path Computation Element (vPCE) and the deployment of virtual SDN controllers (vSDN) on top of virtualized transport networks.
