Virtual Open Systems was presented at IEEE CSCN Berlin 2016, 2016/10/31 - 2016/11/01, as well as the activity carried out in the FP7 SESAME project and the project itself, by showcasing an ARMv8 microserver based on the NXP’s LS2085A.
The main focus of the conference was the upcoming 5G network standard.
One of the main highlights of the conference, the Network Slicing approach, was directly related to the ideas in SESAME, where multiple operators share the same Small Cell network.
The demo booth organized by VOSyS presented the SESAME project, and the VOSyS virtual switch VOSYSwitch with OpenFlow, in a high resiliency scenario, with an SDN application monitoring the availability of a web service: once the service is off-line, the application, leveraging the OpenDaylight REST API eas switching the traffic to the backup service instance.
The conference was attended by about 200 people and about 40 presentations were shown.
The demo attracted the interest on the project from different industrial and academia representatives, receiving a good feedback and interesting inputs.
