Network Function Virtualization
 
07:56
Network Function Virtualization (NFV) focuses on virtualization of software-based network func- tions. Service Function Chaining (SFC) consists of building services using virtual network functions (VNFs). In this video, the main technologies and enablers for NFV are detailed. It is highlighted why network operators and service providers are eager to adopt the above principles. We believe that efficient management of software-defined virtualized telecommunication systems and data centers will be of key importance in the future. Some key challenges for future research are addressed as well in this video. Target audience: people with network management knowledge, but not familiar with virtualization of network functions.

MIB II
 
34:07
This video introduces the standard Management Information Base: MIB-II, as defined in RFC 1213. After an introduction it discusses the status of the MIB-II, the original design goals, the basic structure of the MIB-II, the relationship to the TCP/IP layers, and the various groups (system, IF, AT, IP, ICMP, TCP, UDP, EGP, Transmission and SNMP). Since the MIB-II is based upon the initial version of the “Structure and identification of Management Information” (SMIv1 - RFC1155), it has later been updated to the SMIv2 (RFC2578) and split into various smaller MIB modules, such as the IF and IP MIBs. Although this video discusses the initial MIB-II, it should still provide a good overview of the most frequently used managed objects.

From SNMP via COPS-PR to NETCONF - Interview with David Harrington (Comcast)
 
25:38
David Harrington works for Comcast and has worked on Cabletron, Enterasys, and Huawei. He has been active in IETF and NMRG since the early 1990s. He was active in the MIB Doctors, Security, Operations, SIRS, and DILBERT directorates, and Technical Advisor to sipclf, capwap, and midcom working groups. He was MIB Technnical Advisor for IEEE 802.1, and coordinated the transfer of responsibility for BRIDGE MIB modules from IETF to IEEE. He chaired SNMPv3, SNMPCONF, SYSLOG, BRIDGE, and NETMOD working groups. He has authored or actively contributed to more than 65 RFCs, most related to securing network management. The interview starts with David talking about his background in the IETF. He gives some reasons why SNMPv2 failed and the deadlock the SNMP community ended up before developing SNMPv3. He discusses the divide and conquer approach of the SNMPv3 architecture, allowing the standardization process to move forward, based on the idea of modules, which can be plugged into SNMPv3 without interfering with other modules. He then provides some insight why it was decided to have the access control subsystem being part of the SNMP engine, instead of the applications. He explains why SNMP is better for monitoring than for configuring, and discusses the raise and fall of COPS-PR. Finally he gives the advantages of using NETCONF for configuration, instead of to SNMP. The interview was recorded in July 2013 at the IETF87 Berlin meeting.

Where to Publish?
 
01:00:06
In this talk we stress the importance of publishing your research results at the right venues. First we identify the workshops, conferences, magazines and journals in the area of network and systems management, but also in the broader networking area. We will discuss the quality of some of our conferences and journals, as perceived by experts in our field, as well as people outside our area. In addition we present acceptance rates, acceptance procedures, conference and journal rankings, as well as impact factors. Although some Ph.D. students may believe that a main goal is to publish as many papers as possible, this talk will stress that there are other important metrics, such as some key venues and the number of citations. We will discuss the pros and cons of the H-index, a metric that is currently quite popular for judging quality of people as well as conferences, but has several limitations. The talk concludes with explaining the importance of publishing in journals indexed in Thomson’s Science Citation Index (SCI), or alternatives like Scopus. It also explains CPP, JCS and FCS factors.

Management of Network Virtualization
 
07:23
Very recently, leading equipment providers in the network infrastructure market launched the first software-enabled appliances that support network virtualization capabilities. The main advantage of Software Defined Networking (SDN) is that network control is separated from the forwarding plane and allows for a flexible management of the network resources. Network virtualization (NV) brings virtualization concepts to the network, similar to cloud computing, which was enabled by virtualization of servers. In this video, the main technologies and enablers for this promising paradigm are detailed, and pointers to more detailed information are provided. Target audience: people with network management knowledge, but not familiar with man- agement of virtualized resources.
