  • Cloud-native Network Edge Industrialization Platform Aug 18 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Guru Charan Prasad, Solution Architect at TCS & Swathi Chittajallu, Technical Architect at TCS
    Network Equipment providers (NEPs) & Telecom Service providers (TSP) have been making significant investments in building transformational software and infrastructure required to efficiently roll-out 5G networks that are quintessential in enabling the intelligent connected world. They gear up to deploy the 5G networks that meet the unique demands of various applications such as industrial IoT, autonomous vehicles, robotics, drones, AR/VR and multimedia. While 5G adopts cloud-native architecture to bring web-scale and agility, it also requires transformation of the network edge to meet the ultra-low latency and high throughput needs of these applications. Adoption of distributed compute at the mobile edge allows hosting these applications closer to the application consumption zones, and will be key to the success of 5G. As the 5G edge transforms into a miniature hybrid data center the public and private cloud vendors are providing the required infrastructure and orchestration software to the NEPs and TSPs. However, there is a need for comprehensive tool kit that not only helps test and industrialize 5G networks at scale, but also intelligently orchestrate and manage multi-tenant edge applications over such hybrid pool of data center resources, and significantly enhanced the consumer experience.

    This webinar presents the need and challenges of the distributed Edge in 5G networks, as well as highlight the advantages brought in by TCS' Cloud-native Network Edge Industrialization Platform - a tool kit that helps the industry in accelerating 5G network and services roll-outs on distributed Edge infrastructure based on Intel's x86_64 architecture and OpenNESS software.
  • @Scale Creation of Kubernetes Clusters from Bare-Metal Machines with Day2 Ops Recorded: Jul 29 2020 59 mins
    Srinivasa R Addepalli, Senior Principal Engineer , Intel and Sree Nandan Atur, Senior Principal Engineer , Robin.io
    You might have experienced the amount of time it takes and how error prone it is to bring up a few servers with operating systems and right software packages. Now, imagine thousands of locations , multiple servers in each location and bringing up all the software needed to create Kubernetes clusters at each location. Making a cluster out of servers requires multiple steps – configuring BIOS, installing operating systems, installing docker/K8s packages and installing basic network functions for connectivity. And the number of steps go up linearly with the number of locations. Hence, automation without physically going to each location is important. Then imagine Day2 operations – Knowing about health of clusters, @scale software upgrades – needed to deploy security fixes – and their complexity.
  • P4 Enabled Edge Delivering – 5G -UPF Recorded: Jul 28 2020 60 mins
    Matt Roman, VP of Marketing and Product Mgmt for Edgecore Networks and Philippe Michelet, VP of Product Mgmt at Kaloom
    Driven by new applications requiring more and more bandwidth, faster response times, and lower latency to deliver improved quality of user experience, Telecom, Data Center and overall IT infrastructure is evolving closer to the “edge”, moving into highly specialized and optimized (space, power, cooling) facilities. One of these applications is 5G, with a reference architecture “disaggregated” into multiple components, one of the most important being UPF (User Plane Function).

    How much more bandwidth? If you consider what Verizon anticipates (in their published “currencies of 5G”), one of these Edge Data Centers, could handle multiple Terabits per second of traffic (considering not only mid-range frequencies, but the new millimeter waves with massive 32T32R/64T64R MIMO antennas), while requiring very low end to end latency (~5ms). Based on these considerations, any traditional approach would not be capable of providing not only the required performance characteristics, but the right business/financial model (as cost per Gb/s or now cost per Tb/s). 

    Meeting these requirements led Kaloom on a different path, capable of not only addressing the specific technical challenges – high BW, low latency – but the strong need for new economics, leveraging a complete end to end Intel HW based approach (Intel/BXD “Tofino” as Edgecore Wedge100 32QS, Intel FPGA “Stratix 10”, Intel x86) with P4 as the most flexible language to program these targets on a regular basis, integrating and assuring protocol evolutions and specific customer requirements. Associated to this innovative and differentiated HW architecture, Kaloom offers a fully containerized solution, leveraging Red Hat OpenShift not only as the foundation for this edge fabric, but to host customer workloads using the same “cluster” further reducing the footprint and overall operational complexity and cost”.

  • CGNAT Infrastructure at the Edge Recorded: Jul 14 2020 60 mins
    Terry Young, Director Service Provider Product Marketing & Siddhartha Aggarwal, Lead Product Marketing Engineer, A10 Networks
    Meet Rising Traffic and Subscribers Volumes as Networks Evolve

    •While service providers and enterprise transform networks to telco cloud and distributed edge architectures, traffic and subscriber volumes keep climbing. The global pandemic has added to that growth, pushing Internet traffic up 50% in some markets. Service providers across the world are scrambling to increase capacity as subscribers work and play more at home and as enterprises shift to on-line business models. One area that can quickly get overwhelmed is the CGNAT infrastructure – that capability in service provider and enterprise networks that manages the pool of IPv4 and IPv6 addresses.

    During this session we are going to discuss the challenges now faced by service providers, including real world case studies.. We will also review some of the features and products that comprise A10 Networks’ Thunder Carrier Grade NAT (CGN) solution and how A10 can help service providers and enterprises optimize existing CGN infrastructure, deploy capabilities in new architectures, meet short term capacity requirements, extend the IPv4 lifetime and transition to IPv6.

  • Delivering a Multi-Cloud Solution for Network Services : A New Approach Recorded: Jul 9 2020 56 mins
    Nati Shalom, CTO and founder, Cloudify & Shay Naeh, Solution Architect, Cloudify
    The increasing amount of network services added by public cloud providers are effectively tilting their scope towards global networking. At the same time, new partnership agreements are being established with carriers including AWS & Verizon, Microsoft Azure & ATT, Google & TIM. Microsoft is also extending its telco service offering with recent acquisitions of Affirmed and MetaSwitch to complete its 5G stack.

    This all leads to a major disruption in the way traditional network services are being delivered. It also disrupts the way we think of multi-cloud.

    In this session, we will introduce a new approach for delivering modern network services that take advantage of public cloud networking such as uCPE and SD-WAN, touching on:

    •Multi-Cloud integration with native cloud orchestration such as Azure ARM and AWS Cloud Formation – often referred to as our ‘Orchestrator of Orchestrators’ approach;
    •Integration with public cloud network services such as Azure V-WAN;
    •Integration with open network services at the edge including SD-EWAN, Pfsence and commercial services such as Fortigate and Palo Alto;
    •Implementation of a distributed multi-cloud strategy to unleash best availability, lower latency, and optimization of bandwidth costs;
    •Enabling of continuous updates directly from your CI/CD without human intervention.

    To benefit from this new open-source and cloud-native network service, we will also use a specialized H/W acceleration to ensure performance will match those of commercial alternatives.

    We will conclude the session with a live demo showing how all this works, revealing a fully automated multi-cloud SD-WAN use case via Azure ARM, Azure V-WAN - connecting them with open and commercial edge network and security services.
  • DoH - Strengthen DNS Infrastructure Security and Improve Subscriber Privacy Recorded: Jun 30 2020 49 mins
    Terry Young, Director Service Provider Product Mktg and Siddhartha Aggarwal, Lead Product Mktg Engineer at A10 Networks
    The security of Domain Name Server (DNS) infrastructure has never been more critical for service providers and enterprise customers. Subscribers and customers are increasingly aware and concerned about privacy of their on-line communications. Now, with the global pandemic, malicious actors are weaponizing Covid19 and attacking vulnerable consumers and workers at home and disrupting critical services, with a wide range of attacks vectors, including DNS. The urgency of protecting subscribers and remote workers has become a top concern.

    DNS query – the request between the DNS client and the local DNS server that provides the internet address - is transmitted in clear text, that is, unencrypted and is especially vulnerable to attack and invasion of user privacy.

    DNS over HTTPS (DoH), proposed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), provides one additional protection of DNS infrastructure. DoH would encrypt the DNS query, providing the subscriber the same encryption protection of HTTPS. Yet, despite growing subscriber concerns and industry support, DoH remains controversial. Many ISPs are apprehensive about its use and how it may impact their business models.

    In this webinar, A10 Networks will review the role of DNS, common attack types and the adoption of DoH by the industry. The pros and cons of DoH for ISPs and subscribers will be explored and A10’s DoH solution described and a recent case study. The presentation will conclude with a short demo on DoH on the A10 CFW.

  • The Intelligent Edge -Scaling resilient virtualized services with Edge Analytics Recorded: May 19 2020 50 mins
    Brian Lappin - BT, Matt Olson - Splunk, and Bill McDonald - Intel
    The applications for uCPE are growing as the edge grows in importance for customers looking to take advantage of Digital Initiatives, but success with these remote deployments is dependent on cost-effective management of these systems. Brian makes the case as to why the Edge is important to BT’s enterprise customers, how customers want to use these services at the edge and why data telemetry and analytics are critical to the successful scale-out of uCPE to these customers.

    Splunk offers a powerful analytics platform that enables communications service providers (CommSPs) and the enterprises that they serve to gain end-to-end visibility of their uCPE infrastructure, WAN connections, security and other applications, with automatic response when network events violate network policies.

    Although SDN and NFV have been around for a number of years, there have been fits and starts due to a variety of different reasons. What’s different this time around is there’s finally an integrated solution with partners aligned, working with service providers to help solve problems. However, as IoT devices continue to grow by some estimates, to 20B+ at the edge, the need to make data-driven decisions at the edge and the ability to deploy uCPE at scale are becoming increasingly vital.

    Matt highlights Splunk’s Data to Everything platform, and how his team helps turn real-time data into doing. Splunk helps service providers bring real-time data to every question, decision, and action that affects their organization so they can turn that data into successful outcomes.

    Learn more about the types of analytics that customers are requiring, how is Splunk making it easy for the customers to consume that data and scale their deployments.

  • Which Form Factor for an SD-WAN Appliance? Recorded: May 12 2020 52 mins
    Marc Bouteyre, Head of Virtualization at Ekinops
    Over-the-top SD-WAN providers are all leveraging x86 appliances as default appliances and very few are using x86 platforms with virtualization. This indeed makes a lot of sense when new devices are needed on the Edge of the network however this is more challenging from a TCO perspective and may limit SD-WAN adoption. While Intel offers a large range of platforms and solutions to optimize their usage, which make those relevant at the Edge, they must be complemented for the entry level with cost-effective solutions in order to extend the overall SD-WAN market. The end game with an extended SD-WAN market being to enable additional network services.

  • Changing the Mobile Networks Economics with Parallel Wireless OpenRAN Recorded: Apr 21 2020 44 mins
    Zahid Ghadialy, Sr. Director, Strategic Marketing; Amit Miron, Sr. Director, Product Management; Jason Tiner, Sales Engineer
    The entire telecom industry is going through a dramatic change that can be only compared to the change that Data Centers went through in the 2000s; all driven by Moore’s law. This is driving the need to move from costly, proprietary solutions to COTS and Open-based ones, and create a broader vendor supply chain. Vodafone recently noted that “the global supply of telecom network equipment has become concentrated in a small handful of companies over the past few years. More choice of suppliers will safeguard the delivery of services to all mobile customers, increase flexibility and innovation and, crucially, can help address some of the cost challenges that are holding back the delivery of internet services globally. In this webinar, Parallel Wireless speakers will discuss how the cloud-native and software-based Parallel Wireless OpenRAN approach across ALL G significantly improves network economics by converging ‘ALL G’, including 2G, 3G, 4G, 5G, on to one unified software platform that is easy to manage. We will showcase how this eliminates the need for operators to maintain siloed legacy networks dedicated to just one G service resulting in up to 60% OPEX cost reduction to maintain networks. This approach allows MNOs to modernize legacy networks for cost reduction and is essential to reduce the complexity and integration expense of rolling out multi-vendor 5G systems. We will go in more detailed in different types of Intel-based OpenRAN (integrated and split) and supported coverage and capacity use cases. We will close the session off with some real-life deployments of OpenRAN by Parallel Wireless across the globe from Vodafone, Telefonica, MTN, Etisalat, Zain and CCA members in the US.
