Solving Distributed NFV Puzzle with OpenStack and SDN

Many NFV use cases call for deployment of service elements at the provider network edge. 5G nodes, PGW, CPE, caches, all need to be placed near the end user to ensure efficient and cost-effective performance of the corresponding services. With NFV, elements previously implemented as proprietary hardware appliances, can be virtualized, deployed on COTS servers and centrally managed. In this presentation we’d like to share an approach to deploying distributed OpenStack-based NFV in a carrier ne
