The Third International Workshop on Security in NFV-SDN
The Third International Workshop on Security in NFV-SDN will be held in conjunction with the IEEE Conference on Network Function Virtualization and Software Defined Networks (IEEE NFV-SDN). This year, the workshop will include a tutorial titled "Clear Containers VNF," led by Manohar Castilino and Eric Ernst of Intel and Shohreh Ahvar, Intel Innovator.
For more information, visit the event webpage.
Date: November 6-8
Place: Berlin, Germany
IEEE Conference on Network Function Virtualization and Software Defined Networks
This year's IEEE Conference on Network Function Virtualization and Software Defined Networks will include a tutorial titled "Fast Packet Processing Towards Scalable and Agile VNFs," led by Sujata Tibrewala, Muthurajan Jayakumar, Manohar Castelino, and Sundar Vedantham of Intel.
Date: November 6-8
Place: Berlin, Germany
Developing and Managing VNFs for 5G and IoT Use Cases
This full-day virtual conference for the global community of network software developers will offer deep-dive technical discussions, hands-on trainings, and labs on VNF containerization, orchestration, and management; VNF optimizations; and 5G/IoT use case support.
We invite end users and service providers to give us their use cases. We will use these as a call to action to VNF developers and also will design trainings around them so the vendors will be able to work on their VNFs for the December Plugfest. We also invite proposals for talks, sessions, and labs from all our partners.

Predictable, deterministic quality of service is a key challenge for NFV adoption, particularly for 5G. In this report by BT* and Intel, get insights gained from BT's noisy neighbor experiments using cache allocation technology and real-world VNFs.
The Exact Match Cache is the first and fastest mechanism used by Open vSwitch (OVS)* to determine what to do with an incoming packet. See its role in the OVS workflow and learn about its key features.
Containers use fewer system resources than virtual machines, and Open vSwitch (OVS)* with DPDK improves packet processing throughput when network traffic is made up of small packets, as is the case with telecommunications environments. This video tutorial series playlist, DPDK in Linux* Containers, walks the viewer through the following tasks, with a link to scripts that enable the user to follow along.
