YANG Model-Driven for SDN/Nfv Technical workshop


If you’re interested on YANG Model-Driven for SDN/NfV and Data Center, please join the online Technical workshop on 16 and 24 June 2015. For future, YANG model will be applied for SDN/Nfv/DC/Cloud service model, IEFT is working on it.

It’s a public on-line workshop, please feel free to share and forward to anyone you want via Facebook, linkedin, email etc.



Cisco Network Service Orchestrator (NSO) Enabled by Tail-f

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

11:00 AM - 12:00 PM Eastern Time (GMT-5)
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM Pacific Time (GMT-8)

Speaker: Carl Moberg – Technology Director

This session will discuss Cisco Network Service Orchestrator (NSO) enabled by Tail-f and the development process used when defining new network services and modifying existing services. The main difference in approach with Cisco NSO is that services are defined in data models, rather than hard-coded in software. Cisco NSO then uses these data models to automatically generate the corresponding user interfaces, northbound APIs, database schemas, and southbound command sequences. The model-driven approach used with Cisco NSO is compared to that of traditional provisioning and orchestration systems. We will provide a demo to illustrate Cisco NSO capabilities.

In this session you will learn about:

  • Model-based network orchestration using Cisco NSO
  • The YANG data modeling language

Model-Driven Network Service Orchestration

Technology now allows the delivery of truly delightful experiences to customers, enabling businesses to transform and strengthen their brands in ways never before possible. We are all optimizing products and services in highly personal ways. No surprise, then, that we want similar flexibility to personalize the various services and products consumed in our businesses. More so if such personalization delivers efficiency, improves business processes, provides business agility, and lowers service costs.

However, the current model deployed by service providers worldwide is challenged in being able to address the new demands of their customers, both business and personal. Two reasons are that services delivery costs are too high, and operations are too inflexible. Network transformation is essential for survival, not just to seize the opportunity ahead.

Fortunately, technologies such as software-defined network (SDN) and network function virtualization (NFV) are emerging that have the potential to help the necessary transformation, but only if implemented correctly. One essential aspect is the automated orchestration of services delivery over their lifecycles from service creation, customer initial order, modifications to final deactivation. All while accompanied by an economically efficient means to make sure SLAs are kept and customer experience is maintained at high quality.

Given the current hype around SDN and NFV, it is important to understand the principles necessary behind a successful orchestration approach and to evaluate how well it and any contenders meet three “extreme” requirements: extreme flexibility, extreme automation, and extreme reliability.

In this session, you will:

• Discover how to meet the three extreme requirements

• Learn about a model-driven approach to services orchestration

• See how it is used as a critical component in a deployed solution example
