There are no CentOS 8packages that provide that Perl module, I don’t see packages in C7 either (nor in EPEL). 

I suggest packaging them yourself. The rpm-build package has an rpmdev-newspec command that can take a -t perl argument to create a spec file from a template for a perk module. So `rpmdev-newspec -t perl perl-Net-Interface`
