OFC demo paper “A Multi-Operator Network Service Orchestration Prototype: The 5G Exchange “ has been accepted

Andrea Sgambelluri (HPE) announced that ”A Multi-Operator Network Service Orchestration Prototype: The 5G Exchange“ demo paper has been accepted for demonstration and publication at SDN & NFV demo session at OFC 2017 in Los Angeles CA, March 2017.

OFC (Optical Networking and Communication Conference & Exhibition) is a worldwide conference, with an excellent visibility (last year more than 13.000 attendees were registered).

5GEx project was presented to the ONF Carrier Grade SDN Group

Carlos J. Bernardos (ONF Research Associate, UC3M) presented on 3 October 2016 the 5GEx project to the ONF Carrier Grade SDN group in one of the periodic calls of the group.

The Open Networking Foundation (ONF) Carrier Grade SDN project focuses on the unique needs of carrier operators of SDN environments. In addition to defining the unique aspects of SDN in these scenarios, this project is working on use cases, deployment considerations and constraints that carrier operators typically operate under.

5GEx have already contributed to the project (as TR5-534 [1]) and we plan to continue this discussion in the following months with 5GEx developments.
