Federica Paganelli

University of Pisa, Italy

Federica Paganelli graduated in telecommunications engineering in 2000 and received the Ph.D. degree in telematics and information society from the University of Florence, Italy, in 2004. She is currently Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science, University of Pisa, Italy. She has been with the National Interuniversity Consortium for Telecommunications (CNIT) until 2018. She has participated to several national and European research projects, including experiments in SmartSantander, Fed4Fire+ and 5GINFIRE

Projects. Her recent research interests include: resource orchestration in software-defined infrastructures, network virtualization, protocols and services for the Internet of Things. She serves as an

Associated Editor of Future Internet (MDPI) and IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management. She participated to the standardization activities of the IEEE NGSON Working Group.


Service Function Chaining For Low-Latency Guarantees

The adoption of NFV and SDN allows network infrastructure operator flexibly orchestrating resources to provide tenants with their own virtual network. However, computing and network resource management APIs are rarely disclosed to tenants for security and performance reasons. This may severely limit tenants' capability in coping with demands of application-tailored network services, including Service Function Chaining (SFC).

This presentation will report on the SFCLola experiment in 5GINFIRE and the related experience in the development and testing of a tenant-managed SFC platform providing tenants with a latency-aware SFC management while minimizing support required from infrastructure operators in a multi-DC environment.
