Current applications, such as on-line gaming or media content delivery, require dynamic bandwidth allocation and a tight integration between the network resources and computing resources. Service orchestration faces the challenge of combining and controlling the resources of these different stratums and optimizing them. This paper proposes the fully automated establishment of a network service using a peer inter-CSO interface in ACTN. The underlying network resources have been abstracted and virtualized in order to provide a network slice. We present the CSO/ACTN architecture and detail the main components. The system is implemented and demonstrated in an experimental testbed, where we characterize the setup delay of a virtual deep packet inspection service across several network domains using the proposed peer interface.
