OPNFV aims to build an Open Source reference platform for NFV. Such platform deals with Virtual Network Functions (VNFs). vIMS, vCDN, vFW, vEPC, vCPE, vHgW, vRouter, vWhatever are now part of the NFV Landscape. There are several attempts to reference and classify VNFs: in ETSI NFV, through academic initiatives (nfvrg: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1NHI4MZZWVDpxF_Rs7OOSTUa_aHL2ACUVA_Ov-YQs1DA/edit#gid=0), in OPNFV (https://wiki.opnfv.org/display/functest/List+Of+VNFs)...Onos developped its own atomic VNFs https://github.com/opennetworkinglab/onos-app-samples, ....
There are moreover already lots of Open Source initiatives providing such VNFs.
Functest project integrated a Clearwater vIMS since Brahmaputra version.
The internship consists in studying the different initiatives on VNF referencement, propose classification (category, complexity, links,..).
A practical implementation could be done on a very simple Open Source VNF in Functest.
- Networking, Technical documentation, network architecture
- An updated list of Open Source candidates with metrics (maturity, complexity, orchestration, associated test suite)to evaluate the opportunity to integrate them in test suite
- VNF Catalogue
