Nextworks' NFV research at CLOUDNET2016

3-5 October, Pisa (Italy)

Nextworks sponsored this year edition of CloudNet 2016, the 5th IEEE International Conference on Cloud Networking, and has demonstrated research on ETSI NFV applied to 5G management and control. 

In a lively Special Session on Security and Mobile Cloud, our researchers demonstrated our approach for lifecycle management of NFV applications in 5G, the SELFNET Virtual Network Functions Manager.

The SELFNET research project is a 5G PPP Phase 1 project funded by the EC in H2020 framework programme, and is designing an advanced self-organized management infrastructure where NFV applications can be quickly plugged into cloud infrastructures and automatically configured. As such, SELFNET offers tools and systems to implement the new management infrastructure of the 5G networks.
