Network function virtualization NFV is the concept of implementing network services in software using commodity hardware. Services include forwarding, learning, and firewalling, among others. Modular NFV MNFV was introduced as a methodology for designing virtualized network functions VNFs, precisely and ultimately compiling them to an open platform. This thesis applies the methodology to rigorously design a 2-port relay switch from reusable behaviors with features found in commercial switches. A potential implementation of the 2-port relay using Intels open platform called the Data Plane Development Kit DPDK is investigated.
