Bare Metal Basics: The Beginnings; Hardware; Software; and Use Cases

Open Networking has been around for a long time, first adopted by hyperscalers to avail of the centralized network management, CapEx and OpEx savings, but mainstream adoption is accelerating as customer motivations are stronger and the barriers to entry are lower.

Imagine you could build a cost-effective network that was half the price to deploy and even cheaper to manage. A network that was more agile than your present proprietary one, and easier to automate, scale, secure, provision and upgrade.

Bare-Metal Basics is the first in a series of webinars, where EPS Global will walk you through how you can make this network a reality.

What you will learn:

• The beginnings of Bare-Metal
• OCP, ONF, and TIP
• Bare-Metal, Whitebox and Brite-Box
• Open Networking Operating Systems Software
• Use Cases: Datacenter; Carrier; Campus

This is a replay of a webinar previously presented in March 2020.

  • Data Center and Service Provider Solutions with IP Infusion May 13 2021 3:00 pm UTC 45 mins
    Barry McGinley, EPS Global; Craig Schaefer, IP Infusion; William Graves, IP Infusion
    Disaggregation has become a staple in today's data centers. Service Providers and Telcos are rapidly catching up and driving multiple use cases to take advantage of open networking. IP Infusion is at the forefront of this movement with two dynamic NOS options:

    • OcNOS (Open Compute Network Operating System)
    • DANOS Vyatta Edition (DVe) via our exclusive global partnership with AT&T

    About This Webinar
    • Disaggregated Cell Site Gateways are critical to 5G
    • Managed Services can be made more profitable with SD Open Edge (uCPE)
    • Operators can increase bandwidth for the lowest cost per bit with Open Packet Optical Solutions
    • We'll also briefly explore IPI's data center capabilities, representing certainty amidst an evolving industry landscape. Please join us!
  • How Service Providers are Using DCSGs to Build Flexibility into their Network Apr 22 2021 3:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Ray Chang, Director of Research & Development, UfiSpace; and Barry McGinley, Systems Engineer, EPS Global
    About this Webinar:

    This webinar will provide insight into why telecom service providers are beginning their open disaggregation journey at the cell site with disaggregated cell site gateways and the benefits achieved by doing so. Additionally, this webinar will delve into how disaggregated cell site gateways are being utilized by going into some use cases from telecom deployments.


    In this webinar you will learn:

    • Why the cell site gateway is the best place to begin disaggregating your network
    • What are the options available for implementing a cell site gateway router
    • How other telecoms are using the cell site gateways in their network
    • What are the benefits and value gained by telecoms using the DCSG

    Who should attend:

    Service Providers, Network Architects, Network Engineers, NOS Vendors, Resellers/VARs who focus on open disaggregated solutions
  • The Importance of Automating your Test Lab Recorded: Mar 10 2021 49 mins
    Krishna Khandavilli, Technical Product Manager, Pluribus Networks; Barry McGinley, Systems Engineer, EPS Global
    In pandemic environments like COVID-19, having a lab automation solution to remotely setup & configure lab networks is a key tool for business continuity. However the benefits do not end there, as a test lab automation solution reduces testing costs while at the same time accelerating the introduction of new products and services - providing measurable value to the business.

    About this Webinar:
    This webinar will review how you can automate your hardware test lab so it can be managed remotely 24/7 from anywhere in the world via a novel, software-defined and non-blocking layer 1 switching matrix based on disaggregated switching platforms. Attend this webinar to get an overview of this highly innovative and cost-effective approach to test lab automation that uses commodity white box Ethernet switches to deliver a flexible and scalable VirtualWire fabric for software defined test lab automation.

    In this webinar you will learn how to:
    • Speed up time to service and reduce opex with remote software reconfiguration of your lab topology
    • Reduce CapEx with commodity white box switches instead of proprietary Layer 1 switches
    • Share test ports across labs to improve the ROI on expensive test generators
    • Increase efficiency by sharing resources across multiple geographically diverse lab locations
    • Mix media and port speeds to increase flexibility and reduce the need to buy dedicated ports


    Who should attend:
    Lab Managers from Service Providers, Enterprise and public sector institutions who want to automate their test labs and Resellers/VARs who focus on disaggregated switching solutions and/or test lab automation.
  • Unboxing Open Networking - The Hardware Within Recorded: Feb 25 2021 44 mins
    Barry McGinley Systems Engineer, EPS Global; Łukasz Łukowski Vice President Sales and Channel EMEA at Edgecore Networks
    There's many benefits of Open Networking: reduced network equipment expenses, greater and enhanced network services, automated and accelerated provisioning, no vendor lock-in, and reduced operating expenses. But what does the infrastructure actually look like under the hood?

    The growth of cloud computing and the IoT, along with the rise of open-source technologies and communities, is transforming how IT is developed, delivered, and used by businesses and consumers. Public and private cloud data centers of all sizes are being deployed with a network fabric built from open leaf and spine switches, with open software platforms on top that allow them to unlock the benefits of open networking: increased choice, freedom and control, plus a lowered TCO.

    Agenda:

    • Unboxing Open Disaggregated Networking
    • Who are Edgecore Networks?
    • Evolution of the Hardware
    • Contributions to the OCP
    • The Edgecore Lab
    • Open Communities & Cross Pollination
  • Edgecore SONiC Solutions for Open Networking in the Cloud Recorded: Feb 11 2021 52 mins
    Barry McGinley - EPS Global | Michael Ward - Edgecore Networks | Steve Helvie - Open Compute Project
    Join our panel of industry experts as we take a refreshing look at the state of the open networking industry and where SONiC fits in.

    SONiC has been production-hardened in the data centers of some of the largest cloud-service providers, allowing them to share the same software stack across hardware from different switch vendors, but is now being widely adopted outside of the hyper-scale data center environment due to the ever-increasing feature set. Developed by Microsoft and gifted to the Open Compute Project (OCP), it also offers stability in the dynamic landscape of open software vendors.

    Use cases include:
    • Scalable L3 Fabric Underlay
    • Network Fabric Underlay for VMWare® deployments (NSX, ESX, vSAN)
    • Multi-tenancy with VxLAN & eVPN

    Edgecore Networks, the world leader in open networking, offers commercial support and solutions for a qualified Enterprise SONiC distribution on their switch platforms, tailored to the needs of today's Data Centers where the ability to rapidly scale out the data center fabrics is a must.

    What you will learn:
    • The State of Open Networking 2021
    • Origins of SONiC & why the market needs it
    • Edgecore SONiC Solutions overview
    • Use Cases: Where SONiC fits, and where it doesn’t!
    • Leveraging the OCP Ecosystem to engineer a higher performance, cost-effective network
    • Q & A with expert panel
