VNET: Towards End-to-End Network Cloudification


To address the needs for future network services, existing network architecture should evolve significantly to provide a higher level of flexibility, resilience and quality of service. This challenge was also the one of computing which has found with " virtualization " a breakthrough approach to bring a high flexibility in existing computing architecture which makes today the success of cloud computing. The next obvious following step is therefore to " cloudify " the networks. We introduce the VNET project, which proposes to study some of the most complex network cloudification problems from a global point of view i.e at radio access networks and the core networks to the service hosting data centers. It will identify the challenges and address the problems related to the visualization of RAN (Radio Access Networks), the problems of service composition and dependability related to the deployment of SDN and NFV, and finally the design a NaaS platform with the associated tools to allow the specification, validation, deployment and management of on-demand end-to-end services. In addition, the project will address the manageability of this " cloudified " architecture using autonomic concepts based on the MAPE framework.
