Abstract

The increase in the amount of traffic with heterogeneous QoS requirements poses several challenges to end-to-end service provisioning. Network resource management and service differentiation are two crucial functionalities employed by service providers, proven essential in order to meet the end user requirements. In particular, application-driven networking has emerged as a viable alternative embodying the potential of enabling specific flow optimizations meeting application-specific requirements. In this context, Service Function Chaining (SFC) is seen as an enabling technology for the flexible management of specific service/application traffic. In this paradigm the network functions are seen as an ordered chain of interconnected functions handling traffic delivery (data plane), control and management. In this article we present a work in progress of a virtualized, container-based testbed with orchestration and management capabilities supporting service chains.
