The deployment of micro-datacenters for network function virtualization (NFV) by Internet Service Providers creates opportunities for flow processing along the traffic path. On-path processing requires the discovery of the middleboxes that will be traversed by each flow and the assignment of network functions (NFs) to middleboxes, while preserving the order of the NFs as specified in the service chain. NF location dependencies may require flow processing establishment across multiple NF… CONTINUE READING
