Abstract: The panel will discuss viability, limitations, challenges of Service Function Chaining (SFC) with regards to providing High-Precision Networking services with hard service level guaranteees. Opportunities of SFC include the ability to generate custom chains for specific purposes, while challenges include the variations in latency and performance unpredictabilities associated with virtualization. Hence the question arises whether SFC can be a solution in the quest for High-Precision Networking services, or whether alternative solutions are needed.
