Dataplane-assisted Network Function Virtualization (NFV) for 5G networks
Research Groups Telecommunication Networks Group
Thesis type EXPERIMENTAL / DEVELOPMENT
Description Forthcoming 5G networks will be based on Network Function Virtualization (NFV) to provide a new level of flexibility and programmability of the network services. The thesis will consider specifically distributed Virtual Network Functions which are instantiated on different nodes in the network in order to improve the performance and scalability of the network services. Motivating examples of such scenarios are Distributed Deny of Service Detection (DDoSD) schemes and the new 5G testbed that will be operating at Politecnico starting from spring 2019.
The thesis will implement a solution based on programmable data planes using P4 programming model (https://p4.org/) which represent nowadays the most advanced technology to support Software Defined Networking (SDN).
Required skills Strong academic curriculum on networking.
Very good experience in programming and on linux-based systems.
