  • DPI performance measurements for 5G UPF setups Oct 27 2020 3:00 pm UTC 60 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
    •Identify the performance impact of NUMA awareness

  • Converged Telco and Enterprise Automation and Orchestration Platforms Recorded: Oct 13 2020 58 mins
    Srinivasa R Addepalli, Senior Principal Engineer, Intel and Ravikumar Alluboyina, Robin.io
    Geo Distributed computing, 5G, uCPE/SASE use cases require @scale orchestration & Automation. 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

  • 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.

  • High-Performing 5G Telco Clouds Recorded: Sep 8 2020 60 mins
    Bill Queen, Dir. of Business Development & Vlad Laslau, Sr. Technical Product Manager at Keysight Technologies
    Optimize Virtualized Infrastructure Using Repeatable Performance Testing.

    Service providers are migrating to 5G networks where Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and containerization are key building blocks of their telco cloud architecture. This requires integration of complex hardware and software solutions from diverse vendors, and the performance of the complete system is only as good as the weakest link. This means it is critical to dimension and configure the NFV infrustructure (NFVI) properly to scale and sustain these high-performance workloads. The NFVI must achieve the often competing goals of scalability, performance, and reliability, requiring a new, rigorous, and repeatable methodology to test the virtualized infrastructure. This methodology should assess compute, network, storage, and orchestrator performance to help service providers perform vendor selection, optimize their virtualized infrastructures, and identify performance bottlenecks. Keysight Cloud Peak is a software application that implements such methodologies in an easy-to-use framework. In this webinar we will discuss these challenges, how Cloud Peak provides comprehensive methodologies to address them, and review actual test results that compare NFVI solutions from different vendors.

  • @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”.
