As we announced some days ago, SONATA is co-coordinating a workshop within the 5G PPP Software Networks Working Group.
The workshop, named "Software Networks and 5G: from network programmability to SDN/NFV combination for effective network slicing", will take place on Monday, June 12th at 9:00-17:30 at Lecture Hall IT 115.
The softwarization and virtualization of networks and network functions have elevated the complexity of securing networks by another notch. If you want to know more about how NFV-based Network Services can be securely published, you can not miss our latest blog post!
We hope the subject is of your interest and you enjoy reading it!
If you want to know more about containers, a virtualisation technology that is rapidly gaining ground and is expected to have a great impact in the future deployments of cloud technologies and Network Function Virtualisation (NFV), you can´t miss our latest blog post: “A pursuit for a virtualised infrastructure management based on containers”.
We hope you enjoy the reading!
SONATA will be at the SOFTNETWORKING 2017, the international symposium on advances in Software Defined Networking and Network Functions Virtualization, that will take place in Venice (Italy) from the 23th to the 27th of April.
SONATA participation will take place on Monday, the 24th of April, and consist of two parts:
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.
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.
CleanSky ITN, Network for Cloud Computing Eco-System, is a so called Initial Training Network (ITN) that aims to develop innovative ideas in the emerging areas within the “eco-system” of cloud computing: data center evolution, consolidation and service migration, and beyond, via structural training of young researchers.
