CREATE-NET joined the OFELIA consortium
Since August 1, CREATE-NET has officially joined the OFELIA project consortium
CREATE-NET came in through the Open Call for extension that closed end of March and will remain within the consortium until the end of the project. Two proposals (out of 21) were selected by independent reviewers, both extending the project, but in different directions.
CREATE-NET will implement VeRTIGO, a sub-project (the new OFELIA work package WP8).
The FlowVisor tool will be empowered with native Network Virtualization capabilities in order to provide enhanced flexibility in the setup of logical topologies. VeRTIGO will build on top of the previous experience obtained by the proposers with the implementation of a preliminary version of such an architecture (called ADVisor). In particular two different slicing mechanisms will be proposed and their performance benchmarked on both an OFELIA island as well as on the new OFELIA island in Trento, a facility that will be customized according to OFELIA project guidelines and integrated into OFELIA’s federated testbed itself. The overall VeRTIGO architecture will integrate with the OFELIA control framework to allow users to create virtual topologies within all OFELIA islands.
