Tech Mahindra has geared up to support CSPs in their migration to 5G. As a Global SI (Systems Integrator), we are an Innovation Orchestrator closely collaborating with our ecosystem partners of innovators and disruptors. Network of the Future will be dynamically sliced and differentially priced. Network Slicing will enable CSPs to create different logical networks, on a shared Telco Cloud infrastructure, with varying capabilities that best meet the varying requirements of different applications. Throughput, latency, security, mobility requirements can all vary from application to application. Furthermore, economic models across MBB, MIoT and uRLLC will greatly vary and in turn will put varying demands on the network.

Matt McEuen, Technical Architect at AT&T and Evgeny Li, Sr. Software Engineer at Mirantis
As infrastructure becomes more integrated into services for companies large and small, it also becomes more complex. This is particularly true for telcos such as AT&T, which is why the company founded the Airship project to help cleanly manage infrastructure. In this webinar, Matt McEuen of AT&T and Evgeny Li of Mirantis will explain how this open source project works to streamline deployment of tools such as OpenStack and Kubernetes, demonstrating how it works in both local development and production multinode bare metal environments.
Attendees will learn:
•How the architecture of Airship simplifies complex deployment
•The differences between a bare metal and virtual environment
•How to deploy a local production environment
•How to create and trigger a job to perform everyday tasks repeatably and reliably
In this webinar, you will learn why these new tasks are important and how to use open source projects to accomplish them. We will use OPNFV Yardstick NSB, OPNFV SampleVNF, OPNFV OpenStack scenario and ONAP to walk through each of the above steps. You will gain understanding of what each of these tools is and how they help accomplish the above tasks.

Enterprises are deploying SD-WAN, at an increasingly faster pace, as an important first step towards building optimized environments that are ready for multi-cloud world. As a platform, SD-WAN is a solid first step in deploying edge security applications and services with additional security functions like next-generation firewall (NGFW), intrusion prevention, SSL inspection, web filtering, DNS security, and malware analysis needed as well. In this webinar, we will discuss how VMware SD-WAN by Velocloud lays the foundation for SD-WAN and how Palo Alto Networks VM-Series and GlobalProtect security products complement and strengthen overall security to help organizations prevent successful cyberattacks. We will also discuss how Intel architecture, network and security specific hardware and software technologies help these workloads operate in a consistent, saleable and high performance way.
Financial customers moves their applications from enterprise deployments to data center lowering the OPEX. With this movement there is no move to change requirements that are low and deterministic latency of data transport and extreme compute power. With use of FPGA and DPDK technology there is possible to lower the transport latency and use compute of power of Intel® Xeon® processors efficiently comparing to traditional Linux kernel approach.
The webinar presents problems related with transport using Linux kernel and demonstrates how the FPGA and DPDK can be used to improve data transport for financial applications.

The telecoms industry is capital intensive, so every dollar and every cent spent on new infrastructure needs to be accounted for. The biggest expense for mobile operators has always been the RAN, accounting for around 60 % of CAPEX (and 65 % of OPEX). Older (2G, 3G) technologies are becoming more expensive to maintain alongside with 4G and soon 5G. The Open Compute model of the data center has the potential to help operators to move away from proprietary hardware to a virtualized network architecture. Some of TIP’s (Telecom Infrastructure Project) initiatives by Facebook) highest-profile activities are aimed specifically at the RAN, where the proprietary nature of several interfaces has stopped operators from using more than one vendor. The software-based approach for older Gs is unheard of where by virtue of the original design, it’s impossible to reconfigure legacy 2G and 3G networks to support newer communications standards such as 4G, and eventually 5G. In this webinar learn how Parallel Wireless Open RAN technology, designed on x86 across baseband processing platform, radio hardware, and radio and core software, simplifies MNOs business models to support ALL current, present, and future Gs for a better service to the end users at much lower cost. We will present recent case studies from TIP Summit from operators like Telefonica, MTN and Vodafone. www.parallelwireless.com

Most mobile operators are moving ahead with their 5G plans, some tentatively and others aggressively. Those who don’t act, face the very real prospect of being left behind in the greatest technology transformation in decades.
To Modernize your 4G/LTE networks for 5G, we will outline four strategic investments that mobile operators should consider today while delving into the myths and realities around them. These four areas are:
•Upgrading network management
•Consolidating network functions
•Boosting security at key protection points
•Virtualizing network functions
In the security portion of this webinar, we also spotlight key concerns where modern Gi/SGi firewalls and advanced machine learning powered DDoS protection are essential. By carefully investing in upgrades to support specific 5G use cases, network operators can monetize their near-term investments and at the same time modernize the existing infrastructure in preparation for the eventual migration to a full 5G architecture.

Networking has become painfully complicated. There has been little innovation in routing for decades. Overly complex networks are barely meeting today’s business requirements, with armies of sleep-deprived network engineers, duct-tape, and some luck. In this talk, we will discuss how session orientation in the routing layer allows a fundamentally different, far simpler, way to network. Session Smart Routers enable tunnel free SD-WAN on Intel uCPEs which improve scale and performance by leaps when compared to traditional routers. We will discuss how enterprises and service providers are using this to unlock unprecedented value.

Kubernetes is typically used to run workloads of production web applications at massive scale. While NFV control plane functions are similar to the usual k8s workloads, data plane functions differ greatly and require special attention in order that the capabilities of k8s can be extended to support NFV use cases.
This work spans k8s resource management and networking to support NUMA, CPU pinning & isolation, hugepage memory, node feature discovery, multiple networks and high performance network i/o with SR-IOV, Device Plugins and user space networking(DPDK, OVS-DPDK & VPP). This talk will discuss these efforts and their current status and provide an opportunity for those interested to learn more about joining the effort to further these solutions upstream.
