Multi-Access Edge Computing with Network Programmability

Presented by

Sven Freudenfeld - CTO Telecom Application BU at Lanner and Jesper Eriksson - VP of Product Management at NoviFlow Inc.

About this talk

Cloud Services, IoT, 5G and MEC are driving applications ever closer to the network edge, challenging existing network/cloud edge infrastructure to scale into the multi-Tbps range as well as to meet severely reduced latency requirements. Using traditional fixed function network technologies to deliver this enhanced Multi-access Edge Computing unfortunately adds latency to packet flows, multiplies networking costs, limits scalability and drives expenses through the roof. Programmable match-action data planes, combined with programmable compute resources, make it possible deploy Multi-access Edge Computing as an intelligent resource that brings the network into full partnership with applications and coordinates flows across enterprises and global networks. In this webinar, Intel, Lanner and NoviFlow will present an all-in-one MEC solution that demonstrates these principles by uniting Intel scalable compute node, Intel/Barefoot Tofino programmable networking, and NoviFlow's NoviWare and CyberMapper programmable networking software. They will also present how this solution optimizes information flows, minimizes latency, and makes the best possible utilization of all network and compute resources, thus reducing hardware costs, operating expenditures and even energy utilization. Use cases for PE-Router, Mobile Edge Computing, Service Chaining with SRV6, Private LTE and IPTV will be presented and discussed.
