KEYNOTE - vCDN Virtualized Content Delivery Network trial

Nathalie Amann | SDN NFV Program leader | Orange

 

 

Orange deployed a vCDN application on top of a SDN/NFV infrastructure and ran a video delivery service in the Orange France production network in the second half of 2017.

Use cases address operational automation such as rapid cache instantiation, scheduled and unscheduled downtime management, and dynamic scaling of CDN resources. Orange examined the redefinition of roles/accountabilities as part of the operational processes.

 

12:00

Cross-organizational CI/CD Pipelines and automated testing

Marcus Brunner | Chief Researcher, Head of Standardization | Swisscom

 

 

For agile development of VNFs with partners, there must be a cross-organizational CI/CD pipeline being defined from a technical, organizational, and business perspective. One pre-requisite for such CI/CD pipelines in general is that testing is automated as much as possible and NFV allows to run massive amounts of test when enough resources are available.

The European Commission funded Metro-Haul project is to architect and design cost-effective, energy-efficient, agile, and programmable metro networks that are scalable for 5G access supporting next generation Internet services, while capable of responding to real-time application demands.

This work will encompass the design of flexible all-optical metro nodes that will include full compute and storage capabilities that will interface with both 5G access and multi-Tbit/s core networks capable of elastic dimensioning. The presentation outlines these Metro-Haul research partners and activities, it provides uses cases, architecture view, and areas for commercial exploitation and dissemination.
