Abstract

NetSoft 2016 focused on the theme, “Softwarization of Networks, Clouds, and Internet of Things,” presenting recent, emerging approaches and technical solutions for dealing with future softwarized networks, clouds, and IoT infrastructures, as well as with novel services provided on top of these infrastructures. Software‐defined networks, Network Function Virtualization (NFV), and SDN‐based cloud computing (SDNCC) are different expressions of software‐defined infrastructures (SDI). This transformation trend towards softwarization is deeply impacting telecom and ICT industries. In addition, this trend is also transforming several other industries, bringing softwarization to optimize costs and processes and to bring new values in the infrastructures. In particular, SDN, NFV, and network programmability are creating the conditions to reinvent network and service architectures
