Optimizing NFVI Performance with Intel Select Solutions for NFVI Forwarding Platform

Eoin Walsh | Platform Application Engineer | Intel

 

 

With Intel Select Solutions, Intel has endeavored with our partners to lower the integration time of NFVI solutions and make onboarding of new software and applications much easier and faster. With Intel Select Solutions for NFVI Forwarding Platform, Intel has focused on a key ask many customers have: how can we maximize performance and TCO without compromising on flexibility and core tenants of NFV?

 

09:45

 

Forwarding Plane Opportunities: How to Accelerate Deployment

 
 

The ability to program the network independently of its hardware is an opportunity to make infrastructure more agile, flexible, and cost-effective. To that end, SDN and NFV are at the forefront of network transformation and the statement that "Software is eating the world" couldn't ring truer. But what about the hardware?



The question is whether the cloud-native virtual instances can run efficiently on any server platform, or whether it is more cost-effective to define a minimum hardware specification for optimum return. This session will address off-the-shelf solutions specifically suited to meeting universal forwarding plane needs.

Paul Stevens | Telecom Sector Marketing Director | Advantech

10:05

 

Vodafone on Building Telco Cloud with Common NFVI

 
 

 

NFV moved the whole communications industry but still didn't deliver on agility and automation, which are required for operational efficiency and cost reduction. The Common NFVI Telco Task Force (CNTT), which consists of more than 15 global operators, is a new initiative aiming to tackle the defragmentation of the industry and the current NFV offerings. This session will explain better ways to build horizontal cloud platforms for multiple services, and how to practically benefit from the CNTT initiative and contribute into it.

 

10:25

 

Panel: The NFVI Specification: Are We There Yet?

 
 

 

Network functions virtualization infrastructure (NFVI) defines standards for compute, storage, and networking resources that can be used to build virtualized network functions. Since the publication of the first white paper on NFV in 2012, there has been a lot of investment and development to define the NFVI specification. The panel will discuss the work each of their companies has been involved with at the NFVI layer and what, from their perspectives, are the next stages in the development of NFVI.

Service Innovation at the Edge

Renu Navale | Sr. Director, Network Industry Enabling (NIE) Organization in Network Platforms Group (NPG) | Intel

 

 

The network edge is transforming to support a variety of use cases resulting from smart connected data closer to end point devices. These use cases will spawn services across multiple verticals and segments and will demand intelligent processing that can not only handle compute at the edge, but also cater to a variety of workloads such as media, AI, and networking. At Intel, we are laying the foundation for an edge infrastructure based on open platforms and standards such as OpenNESS as well as reference architectures for hybrid workloads that will significantly reduce time to market for service providers transforming their edge on Intel architecture. Join us to understand how you can take advantage of Intel technologies and platforms to start your services innovation today.

 

11:30

 

Transform the Network Applications in the Edge

Dean Shih | Head of QNAP Smart Networking BU | QNAP

 
 

 

QNAP uCPE is an edge-computing network solution that supports NFV, a wide range of virtual applications in VM and container, and cloud management, and it greatly simplifies IT maintenance complexity. QuCPE enables an agile SD-WAN solution with a built-in video surveillance app. It also integrates the Intel Distribution of OpenVINO toolkit AI engine for referencing, making edge devices capable of analyzing vision/video data to empower the system with AI-based intelligence.

 

11:50

 

New Hardware Architecture for Intelligent Transformation of the Edge

Greg Pruett | Distinguished Engineer | Lenovo

 

 

Applications such as autonomous cars and IoT are creating enormous amounts of data at the edge. Traditional telecommunications architectures transmitted most data back to centralized data centers for processing. But this centralized approach will no longer be feasible given the vast amounts of data being created outside the data center. New customer applications and services will require rapid decision making and low-latency responses.



Edge servers and edge-optimized accelerator hardware are enabling new architectures that move processing functions closer to the data. Power-efficient FPGAs or computer vision inferencing hardware can perform immediate processing at the far edge. More significant processing can be done at "nearby" central offices with flexible pools of servers, storage, and accelerator hardware. Join this session to see new hardware optimized for creating scalable and flexible multi-access edge computing (MEC).

 

12:10

A1 Telekom Austria Group NFV Core: 5G and Edge Moves

Wolfgang Fleischer | Head of NFV & IMS Services | A1 Group

 
 

 

This talk will cover lessons learned from running NFV in production for two years in six countries and from a network slicing pilot. It will also cover current efforts to implement 5G in A1 Telekom Austria as well as edge services on-premises in production and future platform evolution.

 

12:30

 

Sitting on the Edge: Cable Operator Access Network View

Bartlomiej Lewicz | System Solution Architect | Liberty Global

 
 

 

Recent moves to distributed access architectures that distribute some or all of the functionality of the CMTS/CCAP are changing the way cable operators build their networks, by significantly reducing space and power required in technical sites. This can potentially allow the space to be freed up and reused for other purposes, which in combination with recent emergences of cloud computing and push towards the edge opens up huge windows of opportunity for cable operators that are effectively already sitting on "the edge" of networks.

Q&A and Closing Remarks

 
 

ETSI SESSION: NETWORK TRANSFORMATION: AN ETSI PERSPECTIVE (MISSISSIPPI)

 
 

 

What will be discussed?



Network Transformation: The gradual (or not) transition from today's more traditional static network of hardware-based management functionalities right up to flexible, dynamically software-based network management capabilities (Orchestration, Network -and Service Management Framework))



What will you learn?



Five key ETSI standards groups are actively working on the building blocks needed to transform todays telecoms network into a self-sustaining and autonomous resource that can adapt to future evolving requirements with a minimum of human intervention.



The discussion on the best way to meet the requirements for the management of future networks has never been as relevant as today.

Are you asking yourself

Is orchestrion still needed?
What is best setup to manage a network / service end - to - end?
Do we need solution based on standardized or by open source communities?
What is the role of standards and of open source?
Whilst the industry is still having heated, sometimes controversial, discussions on a paradigm change regarding network and service management, in ETSI the topic has already been tackled and the way forward is mapped out.



If you wish to find out what comes next, look no further than the ETSI session on 'Network Transformation' on 14 October from 2pm as part of the SDN NFV World Congress in The Hague, where these questions will be addressed.



ETSI, the standards people, have developed specifications for NFV, MEC, ENI and ZSM that are facilitating the entire network and building the path towards a fully evolved 5G core.



The session kicks off with presentations by the respective group Chairmen who provide insides into the holistic ETSI approach to stimulate a discussion on the way forward. In the second, deep focus session, the respective ETSI groups present their joint vision on collaboration both in ETSI and outside towards other SDOs and Open Source projects.



The session concludes with a panel moderation animated by TelecomTV's Director of Content, Guy Daniels.
