Service chaining is an emerging set of technologies and processes that abstract service logic from the underlying network and enable operators to configure services dynamically. By routing traffic flows according to a “service graph”, service chaining addresses the requirement for both optimization of the network, through better utilization of resources; and monetization, through the provision of services that are tailored to the customer context.

This webinar will discuss emerging approaches to services chaining across both physical and virtual environments, with a view to making operator networks more adaptable to change and more able to keep pace with innovation in the application layer. Among the approaches to be discussed are IETF Service Function Chaining, the NFV Forwarding Graph, and SDN-based traffic steering.
