How using Charmed OSM helps telcos to accelerate their NFV transformation

With the increasing adoption of 5G, more TSPs (telecommunications service providers) are moving from their traditional infrastructure to NFV (network functions virtualisation) technology. One of the essential components of the NFV architecture is the MANO (management and orchestration) platform. Among various MANO solutions available on the market, OSM (open-source MANO) is now gaining momentum with various TSPs preparing to use it in production.

Join Tytus Kurek from Canonical and Ramon Armada from Altran for a presentation on the challenges related to OSM adoption and how those can be bypassed by using a production-grade distribution - Charmed OSM. Tytus will also show how to bootstrap a development stack for Charmed OSM in just a few minutes and what a real production stack looks like. Finally, we will discuss the role of the system integrator in the process of achieving a successful adoption and post-deployment phase.

  • Accelerating IoT device time to market Feb 26 2020 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    Nilay Patel - Ubuntu Product Manager
    Launching IoT devices and managing them at scale can be a time intensive and complex process. With 85% of IoT initiatives not launched after a year of development, it is inevitable that change is needed.

    To overcome these challenges, Canonical has introduced Smart Start, a package that reduces business and technical decision making into a 2-week, fixed-cost decision. Smart Start provides a guided journey through the infrastructure needed to develop, customise, and distribute software to fleets of devices. With consulting services to de-risk the journey at critical points, an enterprise’s IoT strategy is fast tracked to market.

    This webinar details the learnings from over 30 project summaries and case studies of Canonical customers. Nilay Patel, Product Manager for IoT and Devices, will speak about the lessons to take away, and why businesses such as Rigado, Cyberdyne and Fingbox chose Canonical to launch their IoT devices.
  • Edge AI in a 5G world Recorded: Feb 13 2020 27 mins
    Eduardo Aguilar Pelaez - Ubuntu Product Manager
    Deploying AI/ML solutions in latency-sensitive use cases requires a new solution architecture approach for many businesses.

    Fast computational units (i.e. GPUs) and low-latency connections (i.e. 5G) allow for AI/ML models to be executed outside the sensors/actuators (e.g. cameras & robotic arms). This reduces costs through lower hardware complexity as well as compute resource sharing amongst the IoT fleet.

    Strict AI responsiveness requirements that before required IoT AI model embedding can now be met with co-located GPUs (e.g. on the same factory building) as the sensors and actuators. An example of this is the robot ‘dummification’ trend that is currently being observed for factory robotics with a view to reducing robot unit costs and fleet management.

    In this webinar we will explore some real-life scenarios in which GPUs and low-latency connectivity can unlock previously prohibitively expensive solutions now available for businesses to put in place and lead the 4th industrial revolution.
