Requesting computing and networking resources through FELIX stack
Showcasing the process of request and provisioning for different kind of resources which are offered by the FELIX test bed.
First, we analyse the data model (RSpec) to be used. The resources are then reserved and provisioned after a while. Flowspace requests are manually approved by the domain network administrator, if deemed acceptable. After that, the resources can be started: NSI links are effectively initiated and the inter-domain connection is set up. Finally, the intra- to inter- domain communication is provided by matching inside and outside traffic through the flows inserted in the Stitching Entity (an OpenFlow-enabled device).
High quality media streaming over long-distance network using FELIX experimental facility
This video presents FELIX project approach of implementation the “High Quality Media Transmission over long-distance networks” use case. A virtual slice built on demand over European and Japan infrastructure allows to perform the experiments and shows capabilities of the test-bed and its availability for high quality media streaming experiments over long distance federated network. During presented experiment behavior of the novel smart SDN network application is examined. The application is able (based on the monitoring parameters) rearrange the network. During the tests, the experimenter may monitor various performance metrics of the network connections, e.g., bandwidth, round trip time, correctly decoded video frame per second and lost video frames due to reordering, excessive delay, etc. thus observe possible stream degradation due to traffic congestion on the paths.
