Cross-Project Workshop in Berlin today

Representatives of three projects, SONATA, VirtuWind and 5G-Ex, get together today in Berlin for a technical workshop.

This is not the first time that SONATA members participate in a cross-project workshop. The last one was on "5G-PPP Cross-project Workshop on Use cases / models / performance evaluation, Air interface design, Overall 5G RAN design and Overall 5G architecture" last February in Athens.

This time the participation is more limited as the idea is to share best practices and understand how we can benefit from each others´ work and research effort.

Blog word in a figure

We close March with a new blog post. In this second blog post of this month, we talk about the Service Development Kit (SDK), one of the main SONATA´s building blocks.

SONATA's Network SDK provides an invaluable set of tools for assisting developers in the development and testing of complex NFV services consisting of multiple VNFs. We can consider the SDK environment as a sandbox to develop and try-out NFV-based network services.

Blog post on the Network Service Editor available!

This month our blog post is dedicated to the SONATA Network Service Editor, a powerful tool that can allow a non-expert service owner to create a virtual link between two components by simple actions like dragging and dropping a component or drawing a line between two nodes. By visualizing the descriptor as a graph of VNFs, network services, connection points and virtual links, the user gets a better understanding of the relationships between nodes just by a quick look at the graph layout, instead of reading a long descriptor.
