The Potential of Cloud-Native Network Functions

This December we hosted our annual CENGN Summit. It was a full day event that brought together our industry, academic, and government stakeholders to showcase up and coming technologies and address challenges that we’re all facing with the adoption and advancement of new Networking technologies. At the event CENGN took part in the Next Generation Network Showcase, where we provided a demonstration of some of our most recent work in open source Networking.

This video demonstration is based on a live presentation of NFV Evolution: From Virtualized to Containerized Network Functions provided by Sam Robillard, our Cloud Infrastructure Engineering Student and Ochuko Benemoh, Cloud Infrastructure Engineer at the Ottawa Open Source Networking Meetup. Their demo illustrates the potential of Cloud-Native Network Functions over traditional Virtual Network Functions. Using Kubernetes, VPP, and Ligato, they deploy three different scenarios. The first two scenarios use a simple topology where the focus is on performance optimization, and the last scenario displays the Service Function Chaining Capabilities of VNFs.
