Realizing the Value of NFV with Universal Customer Premises Equipment (uCPE)

Verizon has announced its universal customer premises equipment (uCPE) offering to “expand the range of choices available to our customers, accelerate the enterprise transformation to cloud based architectures, and increase the agility of organizations to respond to market challenges.” Sounds good, but what does uCPE really mean? How to you implement it to realize the true value of network functions virtualization (NFV)? This webinar will explain what uCPE is, and how Verizon was able to work with their supplier partners to create an open and multi-vendor system for rapid deployment of services. It will also cover some of the challenges the team addressed, as well as the big benefits that Verizon customers are already seeing.

  • Building next-gen CDNs for tomorrow’s critical streaming workloads Jul 13 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Pål Hermunn Johansen, Varnish; Asad Sajjad Ahmed, Varnish; Nash Kleppan, Intel and Tushar Gohad, Intel.
    Join Intel and Varnish Software as they describe their experiences optimizing next-gen CDN deployments and their work to push the limit of raw edge performance with near line rate performance. This webinar will discuss hardware and software considerations when building CDNs capable of handling the high-quality video experiences demanded by consumers at scale, while keeping TCO low. Combining low-latency, high-capacity edge caching with accelerated, CDN-optimized hardware, high-speed TLS termination, NUMA balancing and fast I/O will future-proof CDNs against emerging demands.

    We’ll cover:
    • Hardware considerations for vRAN, NFVi and CDN environments
    • Delivering video content to 100,000 viewers per edge cache
    • Accelerating deployment of CDNs to keep costs and complexity low
    • Pushing the limit of edge performance: how we approached 400Gbps
  • Network Disaggregation & Quality Assurance Jun 29 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Jason Chandralal, General Manager and Laxman Patil, Senior Architect, Happiest Minds Technologies
    With the advent and deployment of NFV solutions by Telco’s and Enterprises alike, NFV has provided much greater flexibility in addressing changing requirements. It also provides added control over both current and future functionality while reducing operational expenses and eliminating vendor lock-in. NFV is part of a larger trend towards Network disaggregation enabling the Telecommunications industry towards agile networks.
    While Disaggregation has become standard in data centers and cloud networks, it is yet to fully penetrate the network edge. There has been a separation of hardware and software vendors, leading to the usage of white box edge switches but the complete evolution in disaggregating the hardware is still under progress.
    However, advances in both software and hardware have created a robust ecosystem of networking applications that can be used as building blocks to create an industry-standard NOS for telco networks.
    In such a scenario, it is crucial to have a differentiated testing and validation strategy to account for application and hardware options from multiple vendors that are all supported by a single standardized NOS with standardized interfaces running on bare metal or fully virtualized deployments models.
    This webinar intends to provide technical insights about the importance of formulating a testing program tailored specifically for a DANOS (Disaggregated Network Operation System) Platform based on an Open Architecture. We would provide an overview of disaggregated systems, its associated layers, specific testing methodologies and explore test scenarios to validate DANOS using Intel hardware.

    Martin Bäckström, Ericsson VP, Head of Strategy in Market Area North America and Hassnaa Moustafa, Principal Engineer, Intel.
    Communication Service Providers (CSPs) are faced with vast business opportunities to support their enterprise customers’ digitalization journey. The high bandwidth and low latency demanding applications increasingly sought after by industry verticals like healthcare, retail and manufacturing will benefit from the cloud native and distributed architecture of 5G technology to thrive at the service provider edge.
    OpenNESS (Open Network Edge Services Software) is an open source distribution software toolkit that enables highly optimized and performance edge platforms to onboard and manage applications and network functions with cloud-like agility across any type of network, accelerating 5G Network and On-Premise Edge solution development.
    Ericsson Cloud Container Distribution (CCD) is a Kubernetes based, CNCF certified, telco optimized and workload agnostic CaaS offering validated with Ericsson cloud-native network functions.
    With the endeavor to support CSPs in their efforts to develop new revenue streams while at the same time streamlining their end-customers' operations, Intel and Ericsson run a technical collaboration that enables support in CCD of a set of microservices from OpenNESS, that in turn allows CCD to on-board cloud-native applications within a solution defined by the OpenNESS toolkit.

  • Introduction to a Cloud Native Approach for Packet Processing w/ Kubernetes CNI Recorded: Jun 2 2021 54 mins
    Brian Skerry, Principal Engineer, Intel
    The needs for packet processing in a Kubernetes environment continue to evolve, and we have seen that many Cloud Native Functions require higher performance than offered by conventional networking solutions. To achieve the performance needs of these applications while continuing to support abstraction from the physical network interfaces, an interface called AF_XDP (Address Family - Express Data Path) is described along with potential use cases. A key part of this is to support the existing Kubernetes abstractions such as CNI (Container Network Interface), and to be based off of Linux network driver interfaces. Comparisons to existing alternatives will also be addressed.

  • Cloud Native Edge Computing, Private 5G Using Intel OpenNESS Recorded: Apr 27 2021 59 mins
    Srinivasa Addepalli, Intel; Amar Kapadia, Aarna Networks; Prabhjot Singh Sethi, Aarna Networks
    Enterprises have started to see an increased need for edge computing, related security, and local connectivity via private 5G in addition to Wi-Fi and SD-WAN across their offices. General purpose servers (similar to uCPE) with Kubernetes orchestration seem to be the cloud of choice for the Multi Access Edge Computing (MEC) environment. Enterprises expect to use a comprehensive solution that can orchestrate and automate all the components across multiple enterprise locations (K8s clusters). In this webinar, we will present the deployment architectures for a few industries, various open source components addressing these needs, and an integrated solution to solve the problem. We will also show a demo of the OpenNESS Edge Multi-Cluster Orchestration Platform (EMCO) orchestrating Free5GC 5G Core network functions, a sample Edge-computing application, across multiple Kubernetes clusters running OpenNESS 20.12. We will also show a gNB simulator passing traffic through the 5G Core to a sample edge application. For the demo, EMCO will be demonstrated as part of the Aarna Network Multi Cluster Orchestration Platform product.

  • Capgemini Engineering 5G for Smart Cities & Road Side Infrastructure Recorded: Apr 22 2021 61 mins
    Shamik Mishra, Capgemini Engineering and R&D; Suman A. Sehra, Intel; Yousef Hawwar, Intel
    5G and edge computing has the potential to generate new opportunities for industries by leveraging faster connectivity, lower latency and proximity computing. Private networks, primarily for Industry 4.0 application, will leverage 5G and edge for connectivity, AI and computer vision. These use cases need a 'connectivity-as-a-service' platform that provides 5G connectivity, hardware accelerated compute platform, simplified management interfaces, cloud native application development and frictionless developer experience. Altran's (part of Capgemini) 5G connected platform addresses these challenges by bringing together the architecture and software (e.g., 5G RAN, 5G Core and ENSCONCE edge compute platform). In this podcast, we will deep dive specifically into a smart city and automotive use case like the intelligent roadside unit and unravel the need for such platforms. We will also discuss Altran's collaboration with Intel and how we leveraged OpenVINO and parts of OpenNESS to engineer a derivative of the solution with higher performance and quality of service. Altran's 5G connected platform addresses these challenges by bringing together the architecture and software (e.g., 5G RAN, 5G Core and ENSCONCE edge compute platform).
