Regular seminar

NewNet@Paris organizes bimonthly seminars in order to boost synergies between researchers of the chaire.  The seminar will take place:

  • every other Wednesday morning, from 10am to 12am  in Telecom ParisTech premises (23 av Italie, Room I304).
  • note that weekly  LINCS seminars are held on the same premises in the afternoon

The goal is to discuss on-going research and potential research collaborations
and opportunities. The seminar will consist of technical presentations and will be followed by information about the chair (News, Q&A).  The seminar is aimed to be:

  • open, to anyone interested from Cisco or Telecom ParisTech
  • informal, ideal for Ph.D students to present their work (even early work)

    Title: A Game Theory Algorithm for Online NFV Orchestration.

    Abstract: Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) allows the rapid deployment and chaining of network functions to improve network flexibility and manageability. However, the efficiency gains allowed by virtualisation can only be reached if the placement and chaining of the Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) in the network are adapted over time to support the load dynamicity; something not attainable with fixed middleboxes. We propose an algorithm, based on game theory, that can be tuned by the operator to set the appropriate trade off between global network costs minimization and flow rerouting avoidance.
    We evaluate our algorithmes by comparing it to the optimal placement obtained with an ILP and show that it stays efficient over time and scalable in large topologies. We tested too main scenarios where VNF placement and chaînon can be an issue: first a WAN setting and secondly a data center
