Let’s we start how to emulate SROS router with Nokia vSR (virtual service router), like other network peripheral company, Nokia have vSR to support future network called Network function virtualization (NFV) that represents a new trend in networking where network functions that previously depended on custom hardware can now be deployed on commodity hardware using standard IT virtualization technologies for added flexibility.
Nokia Virtualized Service Router have following 2 NFV product :
- Virtualized Service Router – Simulator (VSR-SIM)
- Virtualized Service Router – Route Reflector (VSR-RR)
The VSR-SIM simulates the control, management, and forwarding functions of a 7750 SR or 7950 XRS router. The VSR-SIM runs the same service router operating system (SR OS) that runs on the 7750 SR and 7950 XRS hardware-based routers and has the same feature set and operation behaviour as those platform. Configuration of interface, network protocols, and services is done the same way as it is on a physical 7750 SR and 7950 XRS system. Read More
