With the flourish of Internet, the network communication architecture becomes relative complicated and large. The traditional network architecture is unable to satisfy rapidly changing network service requirements. At present, the rise of Software Defined Network (SDN) and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) turn the complex network architecture into the manageable architecture with programmability, virtualization and standardization, realize the advantages of centralized control and rapid deployment, and become the main evolution direction of next generation network. The purpose of this paper is to design an SDN/NFV Network Virtualization Testbed with automatic deployment and management functions which effectively realize the goal of rapid deploy and intelligent network configuration and meet the requirements of network management. Furthermore, for the sake of analyzing the network condition from different perspectives, the monitor and replay functions are provided in our system that can help the researcher confirm the network states.
