In this tutorial we will show detailed instructions and debugging info, in order to deploy a DPDK enabled OVS on an Openstack Newton environment, on Ubuntu 16.04.
First and foremost you must have a working Openstack Newton environment with OVS networking.
Secondly you need to have a DPDK enabled OVS, built and running on your system.
The easy way to do that is to just download and configure the official package.
Following these instructions:
https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/using-open-vswitch-with-dpdk-on-ubuntusudo apt-get install openvswitch-switch-dpdk 1 sudo apt-get install openvswitch-switch-dpdk sudo update-alternatives --set ovs-vswitchd /usr/lib/openvswitch-switch-dpdk/ovs-vswitchd-dpdk 1 sudo update-alternatives --set ovs-vswitchd /usr/lib/openvswitch-switch-dpdk/ovs-vswitchd-dpdk This will install the ovs with dpdk in it. But we also need to add More >
In the framework of the EC-funded research project VITAL, MediaNet lab presented at EC premises during the second review meeting, the v2.0 of the VITAL NFV Manager: A lightweight NFV Orchestrator, capable of composing, deploying, instantiating and managing a Virtual Satellite Network (i.e. a Network Service which includes beyond the terrestrial VNFs, also virtualised Satellite Network Functions). The v2.0 of the NFV Manager has been upgraded with a graphical user interface, which provides resource monitoring per NFVI-PoP of the NFV infrastructure and per instantiated Network Service/Virtual Satellite Network.
The NFV Manager is compatible with the Openstack CCP and Opendaylight Platform, and More >
In the frame of the EU funded ICT T-NOVA Project, Medianetlab will host one of the project’s pilot sites. The project has presented an initial reference demonstrator architecture based on the integration of Openstack and Opendaylight constituting the Virtualised Infrastructure Manager for the Network Function VIrtualisation Infrastructure (NFVI. The first take on T-NOVA high-level architecture of the project is presented in the public deliverable D2.21.
Medianetlab provides lessons learned and guidelines used for the appropriate deployment from scratch of ODL, plus Openstack over Ubuntu using GRE networking. The setup and the details of the deployment setup and configurations used are More >
MNL presented a study on the effects of Video Transcoding Parameters on Event Detection for Surveillance Systems
Dr. Emmanouil Kafetzakis presented a full paper at IEEE International Symposium on Multimedia (ISM), held at Anaheim Marriott Hotel, California, U.S.A., 9-11 December 2013. The ISM conference is an international forum for researchers to exchange information regarding advances in the state of the art and practice of multimedia computing, as well as to identify the emerging research topics and define the future of multimedia computing. The paper, entitled “The Impact of Video Transcoding Parameters on Event Detection for Surveillance Systems”, explains the need for transcoding and studies different video quality metrics. Commonly used algorithms for motion and person detection are More >

MNL study unveils 14 Mbps of additional wireless capacity per citizen unleashed via TV “White Space” exploitation
TV “White Spaces” (TVWS) are locally underutilized portions of the terrestrial TV bands and occur as a by-product of the Digital Switchover. Thanks to the very good characteristics of the TV bands in terrestrial radio communications, the exploitation of TVWS for license-exempt networking, under a carefully established regulatory framework, is a very attractive perspective.
