Talk Title: Multi-objective Optimization for Service Chaining


To cope with high capacity and low latency requirements of 5G services, the service function chains placement problem is solved, for the first time, by the multi-objective optimization approach combining the virtual layer, IP layer, and optical layer. We approximate the Pareto-fronts and propose a weighted-sum algorithm as a building block for 5G management and orchestration architecture by interacting with the NFVO (e.g., OSM). Both simulation and experiment are conducted over a real testbed composed of multiple OpenStack deployed servers interconnected via optical fibers. Results prove that our algorithm can optimize resource usage in multi-access edge computing nodes under diverse workload scenarios while maximizing service acceptance rate.
