Orchestrating Service Function Chains using Open Baton & OPNFV

SFC Orchestrator system enables Open Baton, a reference implementation of the ETSI NFV MANO architecture, to deploy and orchestrate Service Function Chains while providing real-time management of SFC lifecycle. In this demonstration, Open Baton is employed as NFV Orchestrator for managing a multimedia network service that includes two SFCs supporting SIP and HTTP traffic. The deployment of chains’ paths in the data plane is done by the Open Daylight SDN controller via the SFC Orchestrator system in an OPNFV platform. In addition to this, the Auto-scaling System, and the Fault Management System will be employed for demonstrating the SFC lifecycle management achieved by the SFC Orchestrator.
