About energy efficient NFV orchestration in 5G networks - Nextworks' invited talk

15 December, Granada (Spain)
Nextworks has given an invited talk at the "End-to-end service orchestration for 5G and beyond" workshop, co-located with the 15th International Conference on Ubiquitous Computing and Communications (IUCC-2016), Granada (Spain).
Giada Landi, R&D Project Manager at Nextworks, presented how Nextworks dealt with "Energy efficient orchestration of virtual services in 5G integrated fronthaul/backhaul infrastructures".
Nextworks has developed a novel energy management SDN application, EMMA, capable of energy-wise service orchestration. EMMA monitors power consumption based on power measurements or traffic/CPU load statistics and orchestrates resources through energy-aware routing and VNF placement algorithms. EMMA automatically adjusts power states of forwarding and computing elements to guarantee energy efficiency on per-tenant basis or for the whole physical infrastructure.
The EMMA work is part of Nextworks research in the 5G-Crosshaul project, a 5G-PPP Phase I project which is developing an integrated fronthaul/backhaul for 5G infrastructures.
SDN and NFV based control platforms developed by Nextworks are key to deliver the multi-tenant network slices and services in 5G-Crosshaul.
