Network Function Virtualization (NFV) leverages the most recent virtualization and Software Defined Networking (SDN) technologies as well as cloud infrastructure elasticity to substitute hardware middleboxes by Virtual Network Functions (VNFs). However, the failure (e.g., hardware or software) of any VNF of a particular service chain leads to breaking down the entire chain and causing significant data losses, delays, and resource wastage. In this seminar, the resource optimization problem of reliability-aware Service Function Chain (SFC) will be presented. And the routing optimization with shared VNF protection and delay constraints will be discussed.
Long Qu received his Ph.D. degree in Communication and Information Systems from Ningbo University, Ningbo, China, in 2015. He was a visiting Ph.D. student at Concordia University, Montreal, QC, Canada, from 2012 to 2013. He was a Senior Research Assistant at Qatar University, Doha, Qatar, from 2015 to 2016. He is currently a Lecturer at Ningbo University, Ningbo, China. His current research interests include cross-layer design in wireless communication system and virtual network optimization.
