Software-Defined Networks (SDNs) have enforced greater flexibility in deploying and managing networks. Network virtualization is driving the Telecom Industry today. Open v Switch is an open source virtual switch that gives industry grade performance levels on various virtualized environments. This project mainly concentrates on the traffic engineering of the SDN networks and the performance it can provide compared to the legacy networks on Virtualized platforms. This project shows how the services can be chained, as in legacy network, in virtualized environments for enabling Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) for the future. Service Function Chaining (SFC) policies are designed and applied on the underlying switch for different Virtual Network Functions (VNFs). Performance analysis is performed using the ‘pktgen’ as the traffic generator and open v switch as the soft switch. Different use cases of porting in Network Functions as virtual elements and their performance metrics with reduced cost and operations are shown.
