Abstract

In the recent past, (NV) received much attention. Nevertheless, (VNs) are still not available on the market. The consortium of the (COMCON) project examines the potential interactions in vertically and horizontally divided markets and evaluates the applicability of existing technologies, like (GMPLS), for automated virtualization-enabled network management. To promote the manifold research, a selected scenario was demonstrated at the EuroView 2011 comprising a (VoD) service using a (SVC). All necessary components have been implemented and the selected scenario was performed on a real network based on Linux PCs. In this paper, we describe the components, the scenario, and the gained insights in detail.
