Broadband Forum embraces business end of NFV, SDN and cloud – NFV/SDN Reality Check Ep. 85
On this week’s NFV/SDN Reality Check we speak with Robin Mersh, CEO at the Broadband Forum, on how it expects its recently introduced focus the business end of network functions virtualization, software-defined networking and cloud platforms to benefit broadband providers. The organization, which touts a focus on engineering smarter and faster broadband networks, recently updated its vision for the future of broadband at the SDN & OpenFlow World Congress event. That vision included the adoption of SDN and NFV technologies into broadband platforms in order to bring new value to the market. “Today, even though NFV is being implemented, there is no concept of it being a truly international engagement due to operators’ unique footprints but SDN and cloud technologies have the power to change that,” said Mersh. “The whole point of virtualization should be to create a global market for new applications and services, and the work we are seeing at the moment with SDN and the cloud has the potential to enable that, bringing us to the pinnacle of a worldwide broadband market for the first time. Operators must now look at implementing these technologies in order to realize this.” The organization noted SDN and NFV are a big part of its Broadband 20/20 initiative, which “focuses on specific new broadband home and business opportunities that leverage SDN, NFV, the ‘internet of things’ and ultra-fast technologies.” The initiative includes work on developing projects designed to form a framework to enable new applications and service, and drive new revenue opportunities for broadband service providers. “There is, of course, still plenty of work to be done on these technologies particularly in the area of migration and service on-boarding, which is why the Forum is evolving to ensure the full potential of them is unlocked but we cannot do it alone,” added Mersh. “Operators across the world have to look closely at their networks and how these technologies can be implemented to create ubiquitous coverage – if it isn’t global, it won’t be as efficient and it won’t enable the same kind of innovation.” The Broadband Forum has a bit of history in terms of supporting NFV, having hosted a session dedicated to the technology at its event in Dublin, Ireland, in 2014. The move followed up a previous agreement with the European Telecommunications Standards Institute to collaborate on a “consistent approach and common architecture for the infrastructure needed to support virtualized network functions.” Thanks for watching this week’s show and make sure to check out our next NFV/SDN Reality Check when we speak with VMware on its views of development and deployment of NFV-based platforms by the telecom industry.
Plenary Session: SDN and NFV – Stepping Stones to the Telco Cloud
Prodip Sen, HPE Get the latest on SDN & NFV. Access more than 175 recorded sessions from Open Networking Summit 2016: http://bit.ly/21Dx79V ***** When NFV was initiated as a major industry initiative a few years ago, initial activities largely ignored SDN - except as a use case of another virtual function. Recently there has been a growing realization that using the SDN approach is essential to reaping all the benefits of the NFV. Also there has been progress in using open source software in NFV, especially with the use of OpenStack in various commercial offerings (e.g. from HPE), and the launch of OPNFV as an open source project focused on NFV, which uses both OpenStack and ODL and other open source software. For most of the above SDN is viewed as a support technology for NFV. This talk goes beyond that and discusses a couple of use cases we have implemented for Communication Service Providers (CSPs) in the mobile network, where both SDN and NFV are required and each provide distinctive value. It will cover the business value proposition behind these, based on deployments and strong interest from CSPs. We will then discuss how we intend to evolve the implementations to use open source in an integral way. We will end with a view of how the transformation of CSPs networks will really be achieved.

Advanced Cloud Network Services with SDN and BGP
Speakers: Florin Balus, Nuage Networks Florin Balus is currently Director of Product Line Management at Nuage Networks responsible for the specification and implementation of cloud networking solution. He has 20 years of relevant experience in network protocols, working on various projects in both Provider and Vendor environments. Florin is also active in IETF NVO3 Working Group (http://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/nvo3/) where he authored a number of IETF drafts on the subject of Data Center Network Virtualization and Software Defined Networking (SDN). Abstract: Networking challenges in data center and cloud environments have received significant attention by industry and standards organizations. The data center environment is dominated by the presence of software networking components (vswitches) in server hypervisors, which may outnumber by an order of magnitude the physical networking nodes. Bridging the gap between server based networking and existing network services is a significant challenge, since the ultimate goal is the design of end-to-end network services. Existing solutions rely on static routing and/or centralized routing mechanisms that cannot meet the requirements for resiliency and dynamic networking. This talk will discuss a simple approach for this problem, which combines traditional control plane and routing protocol approaches with the flexibility of SDN architectures and Openflow. The mechanism relies on maintaining an Openflow interface to hypervisors and utilizing existing routing mechanisms when a scaled out data center deployment is required to federate a number of SDN controllers, or to interoperate with traditional network services without the need for dedicated gateways or complex OSS integrations.

Software Defined Networking in an Open-Source Compute Cloud SDN
Software-defined networking (SDN) is an approach to computer networking that allows network administrators to manage network services through abstraction of lower-level functionality. This is done by decoupling the system that makes decisions about where traffic is sent (the control plane) from the underlying systems that forward traffic to the selected destination (the data plane). The inventors and vendors of these systems claim that this simplifies networking. SDN requires some method for the control plane to communicate with the data plane. One such mechanism, OpenFlow, is often misunderstood to be equivalent to SDN, but other mechanisms could also fit into the concept. Software-defined networking (SDN) is an architecture purporting to be dynamic, manageable, cost-effective, and adaptable, seeking to be suitable for the high-bandwidth, dynamic nature of today's applications. SDN architectures decouple network control and forwarding functions, enabling network control to become directly programmable and the underlying infrastructure to be abstracted from applications and network services. The OpenFlow protocol is a foundational element for building SDN solutions. The SDN architecture is: Directly programmable: Network control is directly programmable because it is decoupled from forwarding functions. Agile: Abstracting control from forwarding lets administrators dynamically adjust network-wide traffic flow to meet changing needs. Centrally managed: Network intelligence is (logically) centralized in software-based SDN controllers that maintain a global view of the network, which appears to applications and policy engines as a single, logical switch. Programmatically configured: SDN lets network managers configure, manage, secure, and optimize network resources very quickly via dynamic, automated SDN programs, which they can write themselves because the programs do not depend on proprietary software. Open standards-based and vendor-neutral: When implemented through open standards, SDN simplifies network design and operation because instructions are provided by SDN controllers instead of multiple, vendor-specific devices and protocols.

Attacking SDN Infrastructure: Are We Ready for the Next-Gen Networking?
by Changhoon Yoon & Seungsoo Lee Software-Defined Networking (SDN), by decoupling the control logic from the closed and proprietary implementations of traditional network devices, allows researchers and practitioners to design new innovative network functions/protocols in a much easier, more flexible, and powerful way. This technology has gained significant attentions from both industry and academia, and it is now at its adoption stage. When considering the adoption of SDN, the security vulnerability assessment is an important process that must be conducted against any system before the deployment and arguably the starting point toward making it more secure. In this briefing, we explore the attack surface of SDN by actually attacking each layer of SDN stack. The SDN stack is generally composed of control plane, control channel and data plane: The control plane implementations, which are commonly known as SDN controllers or Network OS, implementations are commonly developed and distributed as an open-source project. Of those various Network OS implementations, we attack the most prevalent ones, OpenDaylight (ODL)  and Open Network Operating System (ONOS) . These Network OS projects are both actively led by major telecommunication and networking companies, and some of the companies have already deployed them to their private cloud or network [3, 4]. For the control channel, we also attack a well-known SDN protocol , OpenFlow. In the case of the data plane, we test some OpenFlow-enabled switch device products from major vendors, such as HP and Pica8. Of the attacks that we disclose in this briefing, we demonstrate some of the most critical attacks that directly affect the network (service) availability or confidentiality. For example, one of the attack arbitrarily uninstalls crucial SDN applications running on an ODL(or ONOS) cluster, such as routing, forwarding, or even security service applications. Another attack directly manipulates logical network topology maintained by an ODL(or ONOS) cluster to cause network failures. In addition, we also introduce some of the SDN security projects. We briefly go over the design and implementation of Project Delta, which is an official open-source SDN penetration testing tool pushed forward by Open Networking Foundation Security group, and Security-Mode ONOS, a security extension that protects the core of ONOS from the possible threats of untrusted third-party applications.
