Deskribapena: ETSI ISG NFV is currently focusing on building normative specifications around the concepts that shaped the Architectural Framework that has become the core of what is currently known as Network Function Virtualization. But beyond this focus, the ISG keeps looking at the consolidation of those concepts and the practical approach that made the high impact of the original NFV idea. This talk will illustrate two main aspects of these activities, describing how the NFV PoC framework is evolving, and the exploration of the relationship(s) between SDN and NFV

Deskribapena: The SDN movement is based on abstracting the data plane to allow device-independent control. The 1.0 version of OpenFlow provided a basis for decoupling in simple situations. But establishing a common interoperable interface for device abstraction has proven more difficult for complex networking using the simple OpenFlow framework. A new richer model-driven framework that describes forwarding behavior in OpenFlow terms promises to bring practical device independence to complex networking. This talk will describe the framework, some challenges, and recent progress at the ONF and in OpenDaylight.
