SONATA will participate in the next International Symposium on Advances in Software Defined Networking and Network Functions Virtualization, SOFTNETWORKING 2017, that will take place in Venice (Italy) on April 23-27th.
The Symposium is dedicated to the advances and challenges in SDN&NFV technologies and their applications. Some of the SDN&NFV-related topics will be:
– Software Defined Networking (SDN): concepts, challenges and architectures
– Control and Management in SDN; Network Operating Systems (NOS, ONOS) and virtualization in SDNs
– Network Function Virtualization concepts, challenges and architectures (NFV, OPNFV)
– SDN and NFV cooperation
– SDN and NFV standardization
– OpenDaylight (goals, platforms, interfaces and applications), OpenStack and SDN
– SDN Controllers design and implementation
– SDN Forwarding Elements design and implementation
– OpenFlow and Southbound Protocols
– Application programming interfaces for SDN
– Forwarding plane abstractions, programmability, languages
– Verification techniques and tools for SDN and NFV
– Performance evaluation, optimization and isolation of the Data and Control Planes
– SDN applications and use cases
– NFV applications and use cases
– Reliability, resiliency and fault management in SDN and NFV
– Security and privacy and in SDN and NFV
– Data and Control Plane scalability, inter-operability
– Autonomic (self) management technologies in SDN and NFV
– SDN/NFV architecture versus Content delivery and oriented networks, Information Centric Networking
– Operators and Service Providers business and deployment perspective on SDN and NFV
– Planning and Deployment of SDN/NFV technologies and applications in operational networks
SONATA participation will be structured in three blocks:
– Introduction to SONATA
– SOMA: NFV Service Development and Operations for the SONATA MANO Platform
– DEMO: SONATA NFV SDK and MANO Service Platform hands-on

SONATA is developing a NFV framework that provides a programming model and development toolchain for virtualized services, fully integrated with a DevOps-enabled service platform and orchestration system. SONATA initial results include:
The project results will be release through its 30 month workplan. SONATA first prototype was delivered at the end of the first year of the project, in June 2016. A qualified version will be delivered early in 2017. The final release of the SONATA platform will be public in the summer of 2017.
The project is committed to maintain a publicly available source code repository through the entire development process. SONATA outcomes are published in a public GitHub repository under Apache v2.0 license, a permissive license that guarantees full rights for adoption, modification and distribution.
