Instructor: Javan Erfanian, Distinguished Lecturer - IEEE ComSoc, IEEE WCP

This course provides an end-to-end understanding of Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN), and the end to end aspects and road to 5G. The building blocks and roadmap for an increasingly user-centric and on-demand dynamic delivery, business-aware operation and service-oriented architecture are outlined. The vision, requirements, key enabling technologies and architectural considerations for 5G are discussed, along with transformations and new possibilities, challenges and realities, and timeline.

IEEE SDN and IEEE IoT Webinar: SDN in LANs: Programming the Network to Secure IoT Traffic - 9 November 2016

Matthieu Boussard and Nicolas Le SauzePresenters:
Matthieu Boussard and Nicolas Le Sauze, Nokia Bell Labs

The webinar will present results from an internal research project that aims at giving back to users control over their connected lives. By using virtualization and software-defined networking we scout the future of connected environments, in which dedicated, isolated network overlays, within and across administrative domains, are automatically set up on behalf of the users. The resulting solution provides means for users to have fine grained control over the sharing and composition of their IoT resources, by explicitly defining which resources should be shared, with whom and how, while relieving them of the underlying networking technical complexity. We will describe the overall solution before illustrating its behavior in a number of scenarios, insisting on its benefits and challenges such as security & privacy.
