Peer-to-Peer NFV Service Platform for End-to-End Network Slice Orchestration Across Multiple NFVI Domains

Alemany, Pol; Vilalta, Ricard; Muñoz, Raül; Martínez, Ricardo

This paper presents a non-hierarchical architecture to deploy End-to-End Network Slices in a multi-domain network using an Ethereum-based Blockchain to manage the Network Slicing requests across domains. The use of Blockchain aims to look towards a collaboration vision to deploy Networks Slices using the resources to deploy them as if they would be placed under the domain of the Network Slice requester. The authors describe a possible instantiation procedure and they present results showing how much the use of Blockchain might increase the deployment time of an End-to-End Network Slice.
