Method for realizing virtual network communication, device, and system

实现虚拟网络通信的方法、装置和系统

Abstract

Embodiments of the invention disclose a method for realizing virtual network communication, a device, and a system. The method comprises a first VFF receiving virtual network messages from a first virtual machine VM or a network device, processing the virtual network messages and sending the messages to a second VFF, the virtual network messages comprising virtual topological information; a second VFF processing the virtual network messages and sending the virtual network messages to a second VM. Thus, after functions of the network device being virtualized, virtual network topology can be established among vNF, so as to realize communication among the vNF, and operation and management of the virtual device are more convenient and flexible.
本发明实施例公开了一种虚拟网络通信方法、装置和系统,该方法包括:第一VFF接收来自第一虚拟机VM或网络设备的虚拟网络报文,处理所述虚拟网络报文并发送至第二VFF,所述虚拟网络报文中包括虚拟拓扑信息;第二VFF处理所述虚拟网络报文并发送至第二VM。这样,在网络设备的功能虚拟化后,可以在vNF间构建虚拟网络拓扑,实现vNF间通信,从而使得虚拟设备的运营和管理更加方便、灵活。
