Network service orchestration in heterogeneous 5G networks using an open marketplace

Network service orchestration across heterogeneous networks needs an open marketplace where the services advertised by the providers in different domains can be purchased for short-term or long-term time scales. The authors present two design paradigms and evaluate two corresponding prototypes which provide a framework for network services to be purchased. They compare the two prototypes from the point of view of how effective they are in addressing some of the challenges posed by heterogeneous…

Cross-Layer and SDN Based Routing Scheme for P2P Communication in Vehicular Ad-Hoc Networks

This paper presents a novel software-defined network (SDN) based routing scheme for P2P connection under urban inter-vehicle networks that can be a global optimal route between source and destination and performs better than other three latest SDVN and conventional VANET protocols in routing overhead, average end-to-end delay, packet drop ratio, and average throughput.

Modelling NFV concepts with ontologies

This work proposes mapping such an architecture and the concepts therein into a properly defined ontology based upon a formal description logic semantics and shows how such a concept can be integrated with real-life components in NFV itself.



Design of a protocol to enable economic transactions for network services

The design of a protocol that associates access to network services with economic contracts is presented, and it is shown how this protocol can be realized in fundamentally different ways, using out-of- band signaling and in-band signaling, based on two different prototype implementations.

Inception to application: A GENI based prototype of an open Marketplace for network services

A ChoiceNet prototype is successfully developed which rectifies some of the shortcomings of the earlier prototypes and demonstrates a contractual agreement between multiple network service providers to realize multiple end-to-end application scenarios using the common service specification within the GENI environment.

Towards a Network Marketplace in a Cloud

This paper borrows ideas from the Internet architecture, and proposes to structure the cloud datacenter network as a marketplace where multiple service providers can offer connectivity services to tenants, and demonstrates the feasibility of such an architecture by a prototype in Mininet.

ChoiceNet: toward an economy plane for the internet

This paper presents the architectural aspects of the ChoiceNet economy plane as well as some of the technological problems that need to be addressed in a practical deployment.

T-NOVA: A marketplace for virtualized network functions

An integrated architecture is outlined, designed and developed within the context of the EU FP7 T-NOVA project, which allows network 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 (Network Functions as-a-Service, NFaaS).

The Open Services Gateway Initiative: an introductory overview

The benefits of OSGi, typical markets, and example use cases are outlined, and the architecture of the system and the capabilities that are afforded by the latest release are discussed.

Service definition semantics for optical services on a choice-based network

This paper shows how optical switching capabilities may be abstracted as services to enable the automatic composability that is required for such a system.

Distributed Orchestration of Pervasive Services

This paper describes a novel intermediate approach, where given a logically centralised service orchestration, a distributed implementation is automatically generated that correctly enforces the orchestration behaviour.

Language of choice: On embedding choice-related semantics in a realizable protocol

This paper presents the design of a possible embedding of the entities, and a functionally complete set of interactions, comprising a choice-based architecture, and reports on a prototype built on the GENI environment, and the experience in confronting real-world design issues.
