OFCnet: Software Define Infrastructures

Wednesday, 27 March, 13:00 – 13:30

Theater III

In the realm of Software Defined Infrastructures, Bristol University is employing Multi-access Edge Computing and Neural Radiance Fields to revolutionize the creation, distribution, and consumption of 3D volumetric video, making immersive experiences more accessible. Concurrently, the University of Amsterdam is building toward transparency and accountability at the network level by employing In-Band Network Telemetry in Programmable data planes, ensuring the secure routing of user data along a Trusted Path, even amidst flow steering events. To harness the ever-increasing complexity of the control of cyber infrastructures, the UvA also demonstrates DYNAMOS, a system built to dynamically create microservices in different compositions to enable diverse data-exchange scenarios based on dynamic archetypes. Further demonstrating the versatility of software-defined infrastructures, Ciena and FABRIC have partnered to develop a mobile, software-defined FABRIC node, the tfNode. This node, fully equipped for demonstrations and presentations, serves as a tangible example of the potential of software-defined infrastructures, promoting the wider adoption of FABRIC technology.
