  4. 4. T-NOVA VISION Network Functions Virtualisation (NFV) is an emerging concept, which refers to the migration of certain network functionalities, performed by hardware elements, to virtualized IT infrastructures, where they are deployed as software components. T-NOVA promotes the NFV concept and introduces a novel enabling framework allowing operators  not only to deploy virtualized Network Functions (NFs) for their own needs  but also to offer them to their customers, as value-added services. 4
  5. 5. T-NOVA aims to …    5 Design and implement an integrated management architecture, including an Orchestrator platform, for the automated provision, management, monitoring and optimization of Virtualised Network Functions over Network/IT infrastructures Leverage and enhance state-of-the art cloud computing management frameworks for the elastic provision and (re) allocation of IT resources assigned to the hosting of network functions Exploit and extend Software Defined Networking aspects, focusing on the Openflow technology, for efficient management of network resources, including network slicing, traffic redirection and QoS provision.
  6. 6. T-NOVA overview  T-NOVA novel NFaaS platform offers a composite service to the customers of SPs comprised by a:     6 connectivity service set of associated Network Functions Introduces an innovative “Network Function Store”, following the paradigm of already successful OSspecific “App Stores”. Establishes a Novel Brokerage Platform, allowing customers to transact with the T-NOVA Service Provider and multiple third-party Function Developers
  7. 7. High-level T-NOVA architecture 7 • The Network Function Store, contains NFs by several third-party developers • The Brokerage Platform, for customers to transact with the T-NOVA Service Provider and multiple third-party Function Developers
  8. 8. T-NOVA main areas of innovation • T-NOVA Orchestrator Implementation of a federated management of Network and Cloud resources for NF accommodation • SDN Control Plane Implementation of a novel SDN Control Plane based on Openflow, for network management, slicing and QoS provisioning, accompanied by a Software Development Kit (SDK) for development of SDN control applications • T-NOVA Function Store Establishment of a common, multi-actor Repository for NF publication and exchange (“Function Store”) 8 • Realisation of a Marketplace for NFV Implementation of a set of open tools for the realization of an “NFV Marketplace” within the T-NOVA architecture
  9. 9. T-NOVA expected business impact   Establishment and promotion of a European Virtualised Network Appliance market  Create new niches for innovation in both services and solutions  Create a dynamic competition environment in an open market  Create 3rd party application competition which will drive cost down and churn innovation through horizontalization. Reduction of telcos’ OPEX / CAPEX for hardware networking appliances and acceleration of introduction of new services   9 Introduction to the market of novel, rich networking services enhanced with on-demand in-network functions Decrease Time to market for new Network Functions
  10. 10. Initiation of liaison among newly funded proposals in the field    10 Contact established between UNIFY, NetIDE and T-NOVA Initial discussion on general co-operation aspects  Sharing of project outcomes of common interest (documents and sw deliverables)  Organisation of multi-lateral work-shops on cross-project topics  Sharing dissemination, demo activities and organization of public events  Joining effort in standardization contributions Tentative first joint workshop as side meeting of an upcoming conference; potentially picking an event for recurring meetings in the future  ERIC  European Research and Innovation Conference – annually organized by INTEL  21 October, Nice, France  SDN4NFS  IEEE Software Defined Networks for Future Networks and Services  11-13 November 2013, Trento, Italy
