  • Multi-tenancy Isolation and Legacy Application Support via Virtualization in K8s Dec 17 2020 4:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Srini Addepalli, Sr. Principal Engineer, NPG, Intel; Manjunath Mageswaran, Sr. Principal Engineer, Robin.io
    Kubernetes is well known for managing the containerized applications. Via knative, K8s supports serverless workloads. Do you know that Kubernetes can be used to manage virtualized workloads too? No wonder Kubernetes is becoming choice of workload controller for Telco, Enterprises, Edge providers and cloud providers. One might ask for the need for virtualization support in K8s. Slicing/multi-tenancy is one reason. Though K8s supports operational isolation, tenants are concerned about Linux kernel sharing. With virtualization, one can achieve security isolation among workloads. Few other reasons are related to supporting legacy VM based applications and as well as supporting VMs that have specialized operating system. In this presentation, we will introduce you to various technologies that support VMs/VNFs in K8s environments.

    In this webinar, we will introduce a new virtualized AI/ML based solution from GateSpeed that can provide significant network performance improvements on congested LANs and WANs automatically, without expensive hardware or dedicated IT teams. We will outline tips and tools including dynamic TCP/UDP optimization, Access Point load balancing, and LAN-to-WAN rate shaping to demonstrate ways to improve overall throughput and network performance with Intel based platforms.
  • FPGA & 5G: Simplify deployment of FPGA and associated firmware/software @scale Recorded: Nov 19 2020 57 mins
    Srinivasa R Addepalli, Senior Principal Engineer , Intel and Sree Nandan Atur, Senior Principal Engineer , Robin.io
    Say, you have 5G-DU that leverage FPGA for O-RAN, FEC acceleration; 5G-UPF that leverage FPGA for UPF acceleration; or applications that leverage FPGA for ML/DL & Video encode/decode acceleration . Hence, you want to make your Edge platform expose FPGA to applications. FPGA being programmable, you like to program the FPGA with bitstream based on the application/network-function being deployed. If new application or network function is getting deployed on the node, you want to reprogram the FPGA with new bitstream. FPGA based acceleration exposure in K8s environment involves basic infrastructure setup phase and then the acceleration setup phase that is based on the type of applications being deployed. Complexity goes up when the upgrade of infrastructure (image upgrade) is required. Number of steps required in each phase could be in tens. Complexity goes up with the number of FPGAs in each node, multiple nodes in each edge and multiple edge locations. Hence, automation becomes important.

    In this webinar, we will talk about one of the most popular FPGA cards, N3000 from Intel. N3000 is used for multiple accelerations. DU vendors use FGPA to accelerate L1 processing. Analytics application vendors use it for accelerating training & inferencing. This talk takes one through the complexity in enabling N3000 and updating application bitstreams that involves verifying the image signatures. Finally, it talks about few mechanisms to simplify this process – K8s operators, Central automation system and hybrid approaches.

  • DPI performance measurements for 5G UPF setups Recorded: Oct 27 2020 48 mins
    Tobias Roeder, Senior Application Engineer DPI, at ipoque, Rohde & Schwarz company
    5G is ushering a rich set of opportunities to operators with new applications, services and enhancements. Distributed architectures with user plane functions (UPF) moving closer to the edge and supporting use cases with very low latency are an integral part of the 5G evolution. To make the best of UPFs in 5G, application awareness is key.

    DPI (deep packet inspection) classifies thousands of applications and protocols in real time even in case of advanced obfuscation, port-hopping techniques or encryption. A DPI-powered traffic visibility solution for UPFs is capable of high throughput, low latency and accurate classification in real time. Whether used for policy enforcement, tiered pricing, web and video optimization or content filtering: DPI is a crucial technology to boost 5G UPFs.

    In this technical webinar session, we will showcase the deployment options of DPI in 5G UPF cores and provide hands-on information for designing real-life test setups using the advanced DPI engine R&S®PACE 2, open source traffic generators and 2nd generation Intel® Xeon® Scalable-powered devices under test (DUT).

    Additionally, we will identify and eliminate potential bottlenecks caused by non-uniform memory alignment (NUMA) misconfigurations and discuss how to fine-tune the configuration for data plane development kit (DPDK) and vector packet processing (VPP).

    By the end of this session, attendees will have learned how to:
    •Transition DPI deployments from 4G PGW into 5G UPF
    •Design test setups using open source traffic generators
    •Create application-centric traffic profiles in traffic generators

Orchestration & Automation is expected to keep in mind the co-existence of IT/IOT and Network applications, Automation of infrastructure components with the dynamism of applications, and full life cycle management of deployed applications. It is also expected to keep in mind the geo-distribution of micro-services of applications across multiple edges & clouds. Centralized orchestration & automation system shall take care of all kinds of applications, and hence the trend is to have a comprehensive system. That is, no multiple orchestration & Automation systems – One for network functions and another for IT/IOT applications.

    In this webinar, we will touch base upon few geo-distributed application use cases, discuss the complexity in managing them without a central orchestrator, and discuss various capabilities expected out of the central orchestration systems. In particular, we will talk about intent-based placement considering cost, latency, platform capabilities, and a few more. Also, we will discuss the intent-based Automation of various infrastructure components. We will introduce you to a few solutions – Open source and proprietary – and how they are addressing these complex placement and Automation of massively distributed application life cycle management.

    Participants will learn:
    • Requirements for acceleration technologies
    • Hoe Intel Open Ness solves this requirement
    • Complexities of scheduling network-intensive workloads in Kubernetes
    • The need for supporting complex affinity and anti-affinity rules
    • How Robin automation platform can support these requirements
  • Edge KPIs: Taking control of Performance Recorded: Oct 6 2020 39 mins
    Ashok Kumar, Principal Architect and Manik Sidana, Technical Project Manager– VoerEir India Pvt Ltd
    As the edge adoption increases, clear definitions of the Edge KPIs(Key Performance Indicators) are required to match the application to an Edge infrastructure with required capabilities. Different edge applications may require different characteristics from the Edge site, for example low latency, very high throughput, high write IOPS and so on. With growing number of edge sites catering to different needs and use-cases, there needs to be a categorisation of edge sites based on KPIs. Once these characteristics or KPIs are defined and measured for an edge site, it becomes easy for application onboarding thereby providing an acceptable level of performance/response.
