Abstract

The acceleration of 5G and other communication technologies is significantly influenced by digitization. However, the current state of 5G development falls short in meeting various performance and manageability requirements, particularly in supporting data center networks. To overcome these challenges, telecom enterprises commonly utilize Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Software-Defined Networking (SDN) in their data centers. This paper introduces a comprehensive SDN-NFV architecture aimed at simplifying network administration tasks for telecom enterprises. The evolution of interconnect network operations for virtual services has undergone substantial transformations due to the adoption of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV). We conducted an investigation into the SDN/NFV paradigm to determine the effective implementation, management, and distribution of network services to end users.  This compilation of research papers delves into various aspects of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) within the realm of emerging technologies. Aissioui et al. (2015) contribute with an elastic distributed SDN/NFV controller designed for the efficient management of 5G mobile cloud systems, addressing their dynamic nature. Alenezi et al. (2019) focus on cloud-based SDN and NFV architectures tailored for IoT infrastructure, emphasizing scalability and flexibility. Barakabitze et al. (2020) provide an extensive survey on 5G network slicing using SDN and NFV, categorizing approaches and discussing future challenges.
