Nithya Ganesan, (Winner of Best Paper Presentation Award, 12th International Conference on Industrial Technology and Management, University of Cambridge) gave a talk on ‘Performance Evaluation of Virtual Network Service Function Deployment in Docker Containers’. The talk highlighted the necessity for network providers to deliver adaptable and reliable services in a competitive market. Proprietary hardware-based solutions lack scalability and flexibility, leading to vendor lock-in and high costs. Optimizing performance via cloud-native network function placement is critical. This talk showcased a solution for placing service function chains in containers using OpenStack orchestration. Future research extensions for 5G networks may improve performance and reduce costs.
