Enabling the Management and Orchestration of Virtual Networking Functions on the Edge

Vincent Richards, Rodrigo Moreira, Flávio Silva

Abstract

Tthe Internet of Things (IoT) is the pillar of the next generation of applications that will create a fusion between the real and digital worlds. Several use cases rely on Edge computing capabilities, and the virtualization capacity on Edge is a crucial requirement. The management and orchestration of computing, storage, and networking resources in the Edge cloud pose several challenges. In this work, we propose a Management and Orchestration (MANO) of Virtual Networking Functions (VNFs) on the Edge using standard solutions such as Open Source MANO (OSM) and OpenStack. To showcase our approach, we handled an experimental evaluation using an RPi3 infrastructure. OpenStack manages this infrastructure, and OSM provides the VNF MANO capabilities offering a significant improvement to support cloud computing on Edge. The evaluation showed the feasibility of using low-cost devices such as RPi with standard management solutions used in the core cloud.
