ETSI Workshop on NFV Acceleration Technologies

ETSI ISG NFV is pleased to announce a half day workshop on NFV Acceleration Technologies on 10 April 2019. The event will be co-located with the 21st edition of the MPLS+SDN+NFV World Congress, in Paris, France.
Currently, the group is calling for presentations. It is intended to have the full programme online at the end of January 2019. 

Event Objectives

Guaranteeing high and predictable performance for packet processing has been a major challenge since the inception of the NFV technology. The set of technics to enable high and predictable performance to be delivered on commodity servers is known in general terms as NFV acceleration.

Over the past 4 years, ETSI NFV ISG published a series of specifications around the topic of NFV acceleration:

This event is the right moment and opportunity to assess where the industry has been moving with regards to NFV acceleration.

ETSI is calling for presentation proposals on:

  1. Open NFV acceleration solutions (available or under development) and how they relate to the ISG NFV acceleration approach. This includes open-source solutions, proof-of-concept demonstrations of existing standards or openly available evaluation solutions implementing them;
  2. Gap analysis between NFV acceleration solutions and ETSI NFV specifications, as long as they don’t relate to concrete commercial products;
  3. New uses cases requiring NFV acceleration and potential needs for future standardization work.

Input is expected from standardization development organizations, Open Source communities or individual companies and research institutions.

Proposals for presentations should be submitted using this submission form by 29 January 2019 to [email protected]

It is is intended to have the full programme online beginning of February 2019.
