  • vCGNAPT - Virtual Carrier Grade Network Address Translation
  • vFW - Virtual Firewall
  • vPE - Virtual Provider Edge Router.
  • UDP_Replay - reflects all the UDP traffic on the same interface.

Above sample VNF (Virtual Network Function) are optimized to give VNF/Network service for high performance on a given platform

  • Prox - Packet pROcessing eXecution engine.
    - PROX can act as both basic VNF and Traffic generator based on config for NFVi characterization
    • PROXs as Virtual Network Function
      • Basic L2 Forwarding (no touch)
      • L2 Forwarding (change MAC)
      • L3 Forwarding

      • BNG - Broadband Network Gateway
      • others like QoS, Policing, ARP, QinQ encap/decap IPv4/IPv6, GRE encap/decap etc
      • Lightweight 4over6
        Based on the config Prox can act as below VNFs

    • PROXs as Traffic generator
      • L2/L3 based UDP traffic generation ipv4/ipv6
      • L4 stateful traffic generation and flow extraction tool
      • Lightweight 4over6 traffic
