OpenNaaS @ GLIF Singapoure 2013

  1. 1. RINA Research, Korea-EU Workshop OpenNaaS: an European Open Source framework for the delivery of NaaS An enabler for SDN and NFV Sergi Figuerola, Technology and Innovation Director ( GLIF 13th Meeting, Singapoure, October 4th,2013
  2. 2. The Hilly Landscape Trends – High performance industry  standard servers shipped in  very high volume – Convergence of computing,  storage and networks – New virtualization technologies that abstract underlying hardware yielding  elasticity, scalability and  automation – Software‐defined networking – Mobility, explosion of devices  and traffic – Cloud services 2 Challenges – Huge capital investment to deal with  current trends – Network operators face an increasing disparity between costs and revenues – Complexity: large and increasing variety of  proprietary hardware appliances in  operator’s network  – Reduced hardware lifecycles – Lack of flexibility and agility: cannot move  network resources where & when needed – Launching new services is difficult and  takes too long. Often requires yet another  proprietary box which needs to be  integrated into existing systems © i2cat Foundation. 2013
  3. 3. Setting the ground 08/10/2013 OpenNaaS: an European Open Source  framework  3  Network functionalities are based on specific  HW&SW  One physical node per role Traditional Network model Effect of scale (better  statistical multiplexing) Reduction of geographical  dispersion of HW Reuse same HW for different role when no  longer applicable CAPEX OPEX High volume Ethernet switches High volume standard servers High volume standard storage Orchestrated, automatic & remote install Independent Software Vendors Virtualised Network model © i2cat Foundation. 2013
  4. 4. What is OpenNaaS? • An Open Source Framework for: 1. Virtualizing/Abstracting network resources 2. Managing (physical and virtual) networks 3. Deploying dynamic network infrastructures 4. Supporting heterogeneous network devices 5. Implementing multi‐tenancy through slicing 6. Offering the Network as a Service (NaaS) OpenNaaS: an European Open Source  framework  4© i2cat Foundation. 2013
  5. 5. OpenNaaS Value (I) • Robust and extensible open source framework  ( • Network as a Service (NaaS) model for OAMP management of  network infrastructures • Allows building different types of network service – Examples: • Virtual infrastructure services • Virtual CPE • Dynamic provisioning (BoD) • Holistic integrated approach for network management • Recursive delegation of access right over managed resources OpenNaaS: an European Open Source  framework  5© i2cat Foundation. 2013
  6. 6. OpenNaaS Value (II) • OpenNaaS allows the creation of a virtual representation of  physical resources (i.e. network, router, switch, optical device or  computing server) • Virtualization support through slicing or aggregation OpenNaaS: an European Open Source  framework 6 • Lightweight Abstracted  operational model (HAL)  Decoupled from actual vendor‐ specific details  Flexible enough to  accommodate different designs  and orientations  Fixed enough so common tools can be build and reused across  plugins © i2cat Foundation. 2013

  16. 16. OpenNaaS Community • OpenNaaS Founders are the EC FP7 Mantychore project participants: • Main goal: Set‐up the Open Source Community – Identify the basis, rules and governance policies for the community – Identify the activities, roles and task to be performed by the members – Propose a list of different possible memberships, with the implications, responsibilities and  benefits of each membership level – Support the OpenNaaS Community ( – Provide a model for the OpenNaaS community sustainability OpenNaaS: an European Open Source  framework 16© i2cat Foundation. 2013

  18. 18. NFV … • Network Functions Virtualisation is about to change the network service  and industry landscape over the next 2‐5 years (ref.: Telefonica) – NFV ISG formed under ETSI (Nov. 2012), led by network operators with wide  industry participation • Strong drivers – Significant CapEx/OpEx benefits leveraging the economies of scale – Shorter service cycles – And opportunities for new service models • Novel ways to architect and operate networks, spawning a new wave of  industry‐wide innovation  – Towards a truly ICT infrastructure – Emerging virtual network appliance market  – Opportunities for new market players • Numerous fields of application spanning all domains already identified – vCPE is a significant fist step (Business/subscriber vCPE) – Evolutionary approach • The NaaS model is a key enabler for NFV management and orchestration 19© i2cat Foundation. 2013
  19. 19. OpenNaaS and NFV challenges • On demand provisioning of network resources • Recursive delegation of access right over managed resources • Multi‐tenancy support for physical resources. • Lightweight operational model – Decoupled from infrastructure‐specific details – Flexible enough to accommodate different design styles – Stable enough so common tools can be build and reused via plugins • Security • Lifecycle • Monitoring • Deployment and upgrade • Service orchestration • And support for evolution – Seamless operation of hybrid infrastructures – The NaaS model is a key enabler for NFV management and orchestration 20© i2cat Foundation. 2013
  20. 20. SDN, NFV, NaaS and beyond... • SDN and NFV as new paradigms for communications networks • OpenNaaS HAL allows virtualization and a separation of control and  forwarding planes enabling SDN architectures • SDN protocols (e.g. OpenFlow) supported as virtual resource drivers • Resource management and virtualization make OpenNaaS a modular solution for implementing SDN apps and enable NFV • Different stakeholders can benefit from tailored solutions implemented  with OpenNaaS • OpenNaaS aims at extensibility, scalability and programmability • Open solution for current and future network services management OpenNaaS: an European Open Source  framework 20© i2cat Foundation. 2013
