9:45am Enabling Carrier-Grade Availability Within a Cloud Infrastructure Aaron Smith, Red hat; Pasi Vaananen, Red Hat show more Description Carrier-Grade Cloud Infrastructure (Aaron Smith, Pasi Vaananen, Red Hat): The move from vertically integrated hardware and software to distributed execution in a cloud complicates the delivery of highly available services. Vertically integrated systems enabled all system layers required to communicate and participate in the support of availability of the service to be under control of single system vendor. With NFV, the cloud philosophy of infrastructure and application decoupling requires new open interfaces to support the necessary flow of information between layers and clear separation of the fault and availability management responsibilities between the infrastructure and application SW subsystems. Even in the cloud environment, traditional availability concepts such as fast detection, correlation, and fault notification still apply. A fast, low-latency fault management platform will be presented that allows cloud-based services to achieve 5NINES of availability and service continuity. Performance measurements from a prototype of the system will be presented along with a demo of the operation of a service requiring 50 ms fault remediation.

9:50am Monitoring Cloud Applications Wilson Lai, Dynatrace show more Description One of the key aspects of cloud applications is that your applications must be resilient to failure in the underlying platform. And one of the key aspects of resiliency is to be aware of when something goes wrong. Where traditional system monitoring assumes that servers will not appear and disappear randomly, and capacity grows slowly over time, monitoring of cloud applications requires the ability to register and unregister host instances frequently, and to understand the underlying structure of the application across load balanced clusters. This presentation will cover all that you need to know about monitoring your cloud applications throughout tier lifecycle. Time Tuesday, Jun 13 9:50AM - 10:35AM Location Studio 4 Speakers Wilson Lai Dynatrace

11:15am Cloud Monitoring Framework Based on DPDK Waterman Cao; Wei Yue, Huawei show more Description With the booming of container technology, it brings obvious advantages for cloud: simple and faster deployment, portability and lightweight cost. SDN/NFV/DPDK increases cloud capability and intelligence for more functionality, performance boost and higher resource utilization, etc. But it brings significant new challenges as well. One big concern is cloud monitoring is still relatively dumb. For example, we lack the ability to live detect sub-optimal symptoms, burst events, etc., which often leaves DevOps in blind. In order to meet these kind of challenges, we need to be able to monitor end-to-end traffic path in complexity cloud network environment. We designed a generic DSL-driven distributed monitor framework for this purpose. This framework deploys monitoring agents in various data-paths, including high-speed in-path DPDK monitor agent. It allows dynamic monitoring events injection and has the capability to monitor proactively with finer granularity to allow quick bottleneck detection and sub-optimal symptom alert. Time Tuesday, Jun 13 11:15AM - 11:55AM Location Studio 1 Speakers Waterman Cao Wei Yue Huawei ONAP in OPNFV Bryan Sullivan, AT&T show more Description With the launch of the ONAP project, OPNFV will now be able to integrate a full VNF lifecycle automation framework which has been deployment-tested and is supported by several major service providers.

11:45am Devops Approach to Upgrade VNF Valentin Boucher, Orange Labs show more Description VNF management mainly focus on first deployment phase. As VNF are expected to be released on a monthly or weekly basis, it is key to define new methods to manage software upgrade over NFV infrastructure. Hopefully, there is a large variety of tools available coming from the Devops approach. The presentation illustrates how to upgrade a vIMS on a OPNFV multi-site environment and raises some key issues that should be solved. Time Tuesday, Jun 13 11:45AM - 12:15PM Location Studio 2/3 Speakers Valentin Boucher Orange Labs Management of State in a Cloud Application Dejan Leskaroski, Affirmed Networks show more Description One of the core tenets of the cloud is that you want to separate stateful from stateless components as much as possible. For many NFV applications, this is easier said than done. Applications like EPC are inherently stateful, and can also have latency requirements which require data proximity to control functions. This presentation will cover the various options you have for extracting state from your application, including object storage, distributed data stores or in-memory databases, and handling the inherent state of an application with some redundancy and fast recovery. The presenter will share his experience with examples from the migration of a traditional EPC application to a cloud-native vEPC which can be run on a container management platform.

OPNFV puts great importance on CI and continuously improves how it is done. One of the main prerequisites for CI is a consistent way of handling the software that is frequently built, integrated, deployed, and tested, achieving reproducibility, reliability and traceability. Another requirement for CI is to have the ability to use resources properly, ensuring that the activities are done on resources that have the capabilities needed by the software that is being tested by allocating resources dynamically. These practices ensure increased resource utilisation, getting rid of the waste and reduce the time it takes to get the feedback from CI further. The introduction of the Scenario Descriptor File and POD Descriptor File aim to enable full dynamicity by bringing alignment for how the software is integrated and the resources assigned, making it possible to serve the needs of the community. In addition to CI, the entire OPNFV community can benefit from this dynamism. During this session, we will talk about our experiences, the current activities, the problems that are addressed, the benefits, and how everyone can contribute to this work.

In general, telecom nodes are much larger in size and therefore consume more cloud resources than IT nodes. It is envisioned that all nodes, IT included, will be running on and thus sharing the same cloud resources. As the amount of resources are finite in any cloud, cloud resource management, prioritized resource allocation, and content resolution among competing nodes become critical. Unless resources can be guaranteed for high-priority mobile telecom nodes like S/P-GWs in an automated way, sharing of cloud resources among different categories of nodes may not be realized. The OPNFV Promise project was initiated to solve this problem by introducing resource reservation for future usage in OpenStack to ensure resource availability to high-priority nodes. OPNFV Promise has now teamed up with OpenStack Blazar, which has historically provided resource reservation features to OpenStack users. Promise members have updated the Blazar codebase, which now works with Ocata. This presentation will explain details of operational usecases of Promise, to what extent the usecases could be realized by the updated Blazar, and where Promise plans to take Blazar from here. Time Wednesday, Jun 14 12:10PM - 12:40PM Location Studio 1 Speakers Ashiq Khan NTT DOCOMO, INC. Hiroaki Kobayashi NTT Corporation Next-Gen Network Telemetry for NFV and Beyond: In-Band OAM Frank Brockners, Cisco show more Description While troubleshooting or planning, did you ever wish to get full insight into which paths *all* your packets take in your network, or were you ever asked to prove that your traffic really follows the path you specified by service chaining or that OpenStack configured your vswitch appropriately that traffic really passes through the firewall function? We approach this problem by adding meta-data to *all* live customer traffic. In-band OAM adds forwarding path information and other information/stats to every data packet - as opposed to relying on probe packets, which is the traditional method that tools like ping or traceroute use. This session will introduce In-band OAM (IOAM), explain this new and evolving technology, outline the experimental reference implementation in FD.io/VPP and OpenDaylight using example demos and discuss how IOAM can be used in OPNFV solution stacks, in concert with analytics subsystems (e.g. project OPNFV Bamboo) - as well as how IOAM is standardized in the IETF.

Time Wednesday, Jun 14 2:20PM - 2:50PM Location Studio 1 Speakers Christopher Price Ericsson My Network Functions are Virtualized, But are They Cloud-Ready? Ulas Kozat, Huawei; Yaoguang Wang, Huawei show more Description In the first phase of telco-cloud vision, the physical network functions are targeted for virtualization and became Virtual Network Functions (VNF) decoupled from the specific hardware platform. As we dive into the second phase of the cloud era, the core need is to provide VNF implementations that can take advantage of what cloud has to offer in terms of utility based computing (a.k.a. scaling), availability, data durability, etc. To this end, we have been developing a VNF Performance Modeling framework for automatic characterization of a particular VNF implementation in terms of its cloud-readiness and its bottlenecks towards cloud-readiness. We will present the details of our performance modeling framework and show its utility based on the existing open source VNF implementations. The next frontier of telco-cloud vision is to develop cloud-native network functions and services. Thus, in the last part of our talk, we will cover the future evolution of the framework and discuss the needs, requirements, potential metrics for evaluating the cloud-nativeness of network functions.

In our operation of such a huge environment, We are frequently required to shut down our servers for maintenance, but it is not easy to negotiate with our tenant users to allow downtime. To make it easier, we are developing the structure called "Zone Migration", using the framework of OpenStack project "Watcher".  "Zone Migration" makes it possible to migrate tenants’ workloads from compute nodes and storage devices we want to maintain (source zone) to new blank ones (destination zone)  efficiently, automatically, and with minimum downtime. These requirements as follows are realized. -A lot of VMs and volumes should be migrated within a limited time frame -Operations should be automated, but also can be controlled manually -Time and load of migration should be under control so that tenants’ systems will not be affected We are proceeding with the project in cooperation with NEC and Red Hat, and developing this structure on Red Hat OpenStack Platform.

2:40pm Moving Beyond #!/bin/bash with SNAPS-OO Steven Pisarski, CableLabs show more Description Launching VNFs can be slow, cumbersome, and especially confusing when first working with NFV. Once you finally have running VNFs, configuration and software installation adds to the overall complexity. Programmatically retrieving dynamically assigned attributes (e.g. IP addresses, MAC addresses) is not straightforward from the command line. Cleaning up the environment when you are done with your VNFs poses another unique set of challenges due to transitive and transient dependencies.

3:00pm Avoiding VNF Starvation in Mobile Networks Using SmartNICs Tapio Tallgren, Nokia; Nick Tausanovitch, Netronome show more Description As OPNFV prepares for large-scale deployments in mobile networks around the globe, the problem of VNF starvation is looming large. VNF starvation occurs when the NFVi layer, typically running a virtual switch such as OVS, becomes a bottleneck and is unable to deliver enough data to the virtual machines, effectively starving the virtual networking functions. This problem has already been observed in 4G networks, but will be greatly exacerbated in upcoming 5G deployments. A typical response to VNF starvation is to assign more server CPU cores to run the virtual switching function, but this is self-defeating, since it takes those cores away from the VNFs, and again the performance is degraded. Other efforts have tried to make the server virtual switch processing more efficient by running in user space and various software optimizations. These efforts have met with varying degrees of success, but a fundamental problem remains: they are still taking physical CPU resources away from the virtual networking functions. Offloading the virtual switching function to hardware is an elegant solution to these problems. This presentation will show how to accelerate the virtual switch by using a SmartNIC that can dramatically boost performance and free up server resources for NFV and cloud applications. Potential use cases in OPNFV deployments will be presented and specific metrics around acceleration and offload will be provided.

With NFV and SDN in place, Network Functions are virtualzied and network traffic is managed in separated control and data planes. Thus reducing the operational and capital expenditure. Virtualized Network Functions are tied with Software Defined Networks to boost the power of virtualization. This itself is challenging when Network services and security is a concern. While OpenStack is the best opted solution for IaaS, many service provides are moving towards best solutions to deal with service delivery and security challenges in SDN and NFV integrated OpenStack Cloud. The Presentation outlines the challenges and proposes probable solutions for NFV and SDN integrated OpenStack Cloud.

Principles, requirements and testcases are discussed. Bottlenecks and Yardstick projects jointly implements some of the testcases while Bottlenecks project acts as load manager calling yardstick to do the tests. Generally, stress testing try to break the system in either positive or negative way. It tests for heavy loads and breaking points. However, stress testing does not break the system for pleasure. It will provides level of confidence of the system to users. It also allows observation of how system react to the failures. Additional purpose behind this madness is to make sure that the system fails and recovers gracefully - a quality known as recoverability. The breaking point beyond which the system can not gracefully recover is critical, i.e., the limit/bottleneck of the system. In summary for OPNFV, stress testing is a wonderful way to provide user level of confidence of the integrated platform and one of the true enablers for NFV maturity. It will play as a crucial role in pushing OPNFV into reality. In this presentation, we discuss the methodology, specification, upstream and share the results of stress testing and its implementation for OPNFV. Questions are also raised and discussed regarding examination, analysis of OPNFV under stress testing and how it should react beyond breaking points to continuously promote the level of confidence.

Okinawa Open Laboratories (OOL) in Japan and Institute for Information Industry (III) in Taiwan, have been doing joint research activities in these years about SDN/NFV area, and this year, we have connected each testbed using OPNFV. Over the distributed testbed, we have started our POC of NFV use cases such as vEPC, vCPE etc. We also have communication with several research and academic organization in Asia region, so we would like to connect each country’s testbed and expand our testbed to Asia region. There are many challenges, and we have learned from our experience, so in the session we will share the lessons learned from our trial. That will be good example for the whole community, and help progressing collaboration of global eco system. Time Wednesday, Jun 14 3:50PM - 4:20PM Location Studio 1 Speakers Shuya Nakama Okinawa Open Laboratory / NEC Solution Innovators Eric Chang Institute for Information Industry Hideyasu Hayashi Okinawa Open Laboratory and NEC Solution Innovators Torii Takashi NEC Corporation and Okinawa Open Laboratory MOON: Software-Defined Security Solution for Multi-Cloud Ruan HE, Orange; Chigang Gang, Huawei show more Description NFV infrastructure targets a totally distributed architecture with multiple cloud computing instances that are interconnected by SDN-based network. Such a highly dynamic infrastructure raises a new challenge for security management, e.g. whether user accounts (Authentication and Authorization) should be setup separately for each cloud computing infrastructure and SDN controller, whether dedicated security policies should be defined separately. In the Moon project, a software-defined security approach has been developed. Moon has been introduced in Colorado, and a micro service version is planned for Euphrates. Administrator centrally defines user account and security policy and these may be then enforced by different cloud computing infrastructure instances and SDN controllers (OpenDaylight in our implementation). This presentation firstly shows the principle of this approach, followed with a demonstration which enables the central security management in one cloud instance and distributed enforcement by other 2 cloud computing instances (geographically in different OPNFV labs, one in Europe, one in Asia and one in US).

Different communities around the world have different core assumptions about behaviour, how decisions are made, the role of the individual in a group, and more. What makes up culture, and can we have better community experiences by understanding it? Sociologist Geert Hofstede defined six dimensions of culture, covering values, the relationship of the individual to a group, respect for hierarchy, and attitude to change. In addition to these, there is a wide variation in communication styles related to the use of physical gestures, attitudes to silence, the need for context. By understanding what makes up culture, you will have tools to question your own cultural assumptions, increase your empathy for other participants from different cultures, and avoid misunderstandings as soon as they occur. Can we have better community experiences by understanding the culture participants are coming from? Can we give tools to current community members to be more culturally sensitive and welcoming? And can we also give better advice to people joining the project for the first time, which meets them where they are, rather than expecting them to fit in with the community culture on day one?

To which the local, after thinking for some time, responds, "If I was going to Galway, I wouldn't start from here at all." Cloud native application development can feel like that sometimes, especially in the telecom industry. I have an application, it's running fine on a bare metal server, and now I am expected to make it resilient, scale-out, cloud native, microservice architecture, buzzword compliant. But how do you get there from where you are? This presentation will present the hero's quest, identifying the key constraint to cloud resiliency at each stage, and identifying measures for addressing them. By showing the evolution story from the perspective of two applications, including a real telecom application, this presentation addresses the practical problems. The approach is not "rewrite your app from scratch", it is refactoring for incremental improvements. Doug and Gergely will address the automation of application deployment and configuration, separation of state from behaviour, clustering, handling storage for cloud native applications, monitoring and event management, and container orchestration, so that, at each step along the journey, you know what problem you are solving, and how to get to the next step from where you are. This presentation is in addition to a series of workshops held at the summit sponsored by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation and organized by Dave Neary, and includes a short summary of the topics presented in those workshops in addition to the perspectives on how to complete the quest to cloud native applications.

In this presentation, Phil Robb, V.P. of Operations for Networking & Orchestration at the Linux Foundation, and Frank Brockners of Cisco will discuss how this transformation is progressing, and drill down into a specific example of this increasing integration via the Nirvana stack, originally proposed by AT&T and gaining traction across the open source networking ecosystem. Time Thursday, Jun 15 12:00PM - 12:30PM Location Studio 1 Speakers Frank Brockners Cisco Telco Requirements for a Production-Ready SFC Deployment Manuel Buil, SUSE; Brady Johnson, Ericsson show more Description The OpenDaylight (ODL) Service Function Chaining (SFC) project has made great progress with the Boron and upcoming Carbon releases. With the advances in the OPNFV SFC project, a complete end-2-end service chaining solution is now available for operators to use in creating powerful and intelligent networks. SFC provides a simple, flexible, and scalable way to chain network functions in Data Center networks as well as in Telecom Gi-LAN cloud deployments. Even still, SFC has not been widely adopted in production environments for a number of reasons, one of the main being that SFC still has not met operator requirements. We would like to discuss these requirements and show how the different open source communities leveraged by OPNFV SFC will cover these requirements. Topics to be covered will include SF failover and high availability, non-NSH support, integration with Networking-SFC, etc. Time Thursday, Jun 15 12:00PM - 12:30PM Location Studio 4 Speakers Manuel Buil SUSE Brady Johnson Ericsson Yardstick: Extensible Testing Framework Rex Lee show more Description Yardstick: Extensible Testing Framework Time Thursday, Jun 15 12:00PM - 12:20PM Location Green Tea Speakers Rex Lee

1:50pm Faster, Higher, Stronger – Accelerating Fault Management to the Next Level Yujun Zhang, ZTE Corporation; Carlos Goncalves, NEC show more Description Fault management is a component that allows operations teams to monitor, detect, isolate and automate the recovery of faults. With an efficient fault management system, countermeasures can negate the effects of any deployment faults, avoiding bad user experiences or violation of service-level agreements (SLAs). The OPNFV Doctor project has been developing fault management features that increases resiliency to cloud-based mobile platforms and provides system integration. The OPNFV Doctor team continues improving its framework, not only making fault management more reliable but also faster to satisfy Telco requirements. The 4G mobile system demonstrated at the OpenStack Summit Barcelona keynote featured already a double-digit millisecond fault notification. The team has identified scalability issues in and between relevant OpenStack projects and in conjunction with other open-source software. We will share performance figures, how we continuously profile and red-flag unexpected results (e.g. performance regressions). Finally, we will present solutions to make the overall OpenStack-based fault management framework even faster.

Time Thursday, Jun 15 2:30PM - 3:00PM Location Studio 1 Speakers Yingjun Li Futurewei Technologies Chengli Wang China Mobile Research Institute Sponsored Session: NFV Made Efficient: A View from the Edge Bob Monkman, ARM show more Description Virtualizing network functions between the network core and customer edge, with dynamic and distributed capability driven by zero-touch automation, is the ultimate goal of service providers seeking to deliver greater flexibility and agility in new revenue-generating services. Configuring, monitoring and maintaining this automation remotely at scale is key, and puts high requirements on both policy-based and data-driven orchestration. Cost, space and power efficiency are also critical factors when provisioning more VNF capability at the Provider or Customer Edge. There has been, for example, a growing exploration of microservices and other container-related technologies as to how these add efficiencies into NFV solutions. In this presentation, ARM will discuss elements of efficiency that the ARM ecosystem is exploring, the status of OPNFV Armband project, and PoC work in lightweight virtualization techniques being applied in vCPE use cases at the network edge, as well as observations and solutions being brought to bear to help the industry realize their goals in the most efficient manner.

3:20pm OPNFV Scenarios: Challenges and Opportunities Ulrich Kleber, Huawei; Tim Irnich, Ericsson show more Description OPNFV uses scenarios to provide different variants and combinations of upstream components. On the first glance this might look confusing to users. But the scenario concept provides a way to enable choice, where relevant and desirable, in the way the reference stack is composed. This presentation explains the principles of scenarios and provides an overview of the scenarios provided with the OPNFV releases and currently worked on. It explains the improvements that are introduced with the new scenario lifecycle and how this allows more flexible usage. Generic scenarios are the foundation of stable releases while specific scenarios provide the framework for fast feature development and more continous delivery in micro-releases to advanced users. Parent-child relations help to understand dependencies and roadmaps of scenarios.

While designing the cloud solutions for telco infrastructure understanding its information security risks and mitigation strategies are critical. Legacy approaches are inadequate, this session intends to help the operators to build and approach a telco cloud solution with the right cloud security knowledge. In this session we intend to explain the principle technologies of telco cloud based systems and strategies for safeguarding/classifying data, ensuring privacy and ensuring compliance with regulatory agencies for telco operators. We will also describe the role of encryption in protecting data and specific strategies for key management as well as how to select an appropriate solution to specific business requirements which are in well alignment with cloud based business continuity / disaster recovery strategies. We will also compare baseline and industry standard best practices by doing risk assessments of existing and proposed cloud-based environments. Additionally, presentation will focus on specific technologies like virtual firewalls, security zones, virtual tenant networks and their mapping to various use cases/challenges which an operator faces while designing the telco cloud. Time Thursday, Jun 15 3:20PM - 3:50PM Location Studio 4 Speakers Hwee Ming Ng Red Hat Abhilash Vijayakumary Red Hat Shared Networks to Support VNF High Availability Across OpenStack Multi Region Deployment Chaoyi Huang, Huawei; Victor Morales, Intel show more Description Even now with all the advances to provide high level of resiliency in hardware and software components, it’s possible to have some failures. Those failures are undesirable for Enterprises and they are constantly looking for solutions which tolerate unexpected events to offer steady and unbroken services. Cloud computing solutions are not the exception. One way to achieve that is segregating the Cloud deployment in different regions. For most of enterprise applications use stateful architectures, which means that they're constantly synchronizing their status among different instances. How to provide continuously service in case of a cloud failure happens? During this presentation we will demonstrate how to architect an OpenStack multi-region solution through the existing official OpenStack projects like Neutron and Tricircle, demonstrate and compare the pros. and cons. of different tenant level L2/L3 networking topology across OpenStack clouds.

4:00pm Challenges in Positioning OpenStack for NFVi: Are We Biting Off More Than We Can Chew? Hwee Ming Ng, Red Hat; Sadique Puthen, Red Hat show more Description Many Service providers and communities like OPNFV is seeing OpenStack as the preferred cloud IaaS platform for NFV. However, Openstack was not designed with NFV in mind from day 1 and brings a lot of challenges when adapting to Telco environments. These challenges range from product design and development to solution design and architecture, deployment and support to match Telco expectations. Red Hat has been working with a number of early adopters to roll out NFV solutions. Even though we have many successes, we have our fair share of challenges. When a solution architect and support engineer stand on the dais, it may be appropriate to recollect these challenges based on our experience from a solution design, architecture and support perspective. These challenges include distributed NFV, High Availability everywhere, Fault Tolerance, Predictive recovery, network performance, interoperability with multiple vendors, accommodating different types of VNFs with different operating systems, troubleshooting, feature availability, etc from a solution design perspective and support perspective. Throughout this session we will touch base on these challenges, what are the possible solutions, how did we overcome them and open a discussion for challenges which do not have an acceptable solution. We will also discuss details of some of the challenges associated with troubleshooting issues specific to NFV deployments. Time Thursday, Jun 15 4:00PM - 4:30PM Location Studio 4 Speakers Hwee Ming Ng Red Hat Sadique Puthen Red Hat Functest, What's Coming?

Time Thursday, Jun 15 4:00PM - 4:20PM Location Green Tea Speakers Jose Lausuch Ericsson MEF's: Inter-Domain Orchestration Delivering Dynamic Third Networks [presented in Chinese] Shi Fan, China Telecom show more Description Enterprise customers want on-demand connectivity and cloud services with assured performance and global reach. To deliver that cost-effectively, network operators are transitioning to more automated, virtualized, and interconnected networks powered by LSO (Lifecycle Services Orchestration), SDN, and NFV. Many of the world’s leading service providers are embracing the LSO framework and development of standardized, open APIs to enable end-to-end service orchestration across multiple interconnected provider networks and across various technology domains within a single provider network (e.g., packet WAN, NFV, SD-WAN, and optical transport). The term 'orchestration' is used widely in a variety of contexts. This presentation will present MEF's view of the orchestration of dynamic services and service components across all internal and external domains from one or more providers. Lifecycle Service Orchestration supports the full lifecycle, and not just the configuration and activation phases of the service lifecycle. This presentation will also help put other form of orchestration in context. Time Thursday, Jun 15 4:00PM - 4:30PM Location Studio 1 Speakers Shi Fan China Telecom Smart Testing: Catching More Bugs with Less Code Through Topology Shuffler Manuel Buil, SUSE; Dimitrios Markou, Intracom-Telecom show more Description During the Danube release, SFC improved a lot its testing. Apart from adding new test cases, we focused on making them better following several good practices like making libraries more modular and reusable, apply python functionality to improve the integration and leveraging the new capabilities that functest was adding. Apart from that, we added a performance report for ODL which was appreciated by that community. One final challenge we needed to tackle was that SFC functionality was changing in regards to the compute host allocation scheme of the instances (topology). This led us to consider coverage of different topologies for our test cases. This extensive coverage was difficult to achieve, as the number of possible combinations grows combinatorially with the number of hosts and instances, exploding the testing time / resource requirements in the CI. Therefore we opted to use a time multiplexing scheme for our testing, where we test a different topology in every CI run (every day) from a predefined (and expandable) set of characteristic combinations. We would like to share all our experiences, learnings and ideas with the community so that we help other projects and get feedback or other ideas they might be doing which could be reusable for us Time Thursday, Jun 15 4:00PM - 4:30PM Location Studio 2/3 Speakers Manuel Buil SUSE Dimitrios Markou Intracom-Telecom

4:40pm Energy Audit aaS with OPNFV Morgan Richomme, Orange show more Description Power consumption is a key driver of NFV. However very few projects deal with this aspect. This session will detail a prototype realized in OPNFV Orange labs aiming to track power consumption during CI operations. We could imagine that, if we generalize the information colelction to the Pharos community, we may get significative figures to establish power consumption profiles and why not try to get even deeper and get applicative profile using statistical tools Time Thursday, Jun 15 4:40PM - 5:10PM Location Studio 2/3 Speakers Morgan Richomme Orange OpenDeployment: Cooperation on Common Models Between Standard and Open Source NFV Orchestrators Lingli Deng, China Mobile; Hui Deng, Huawei show more Description As the standards on NFV orchestration evolves slowly, there is an increasingly considerable divergence among open source implementations, which may lead to industry fragmentation. To drive alignment of the Open Source and Standard information/data modeling, which is critical to enable interoperability among MANO stack components, OpenDeployment is proposed as an informal/virtual working group for close collaboration between related SDOs and open source communities on NFV data models, which is particularly focused on identifying and addressing potential gaps between SDO specifications to open source implementations (e.g. between ETSI NFV IFA and OpenStack). By Bringing together individuals from spec editors, code developers, software architect together, it is expected to help close the gap and accelerate the iteration between proposed spec to viable implementation design and running code. Time Thursday, Jun 15 4:40PM - 5:10PM Location Studio 1 Speakers Lingli Deng China Mobile Hui Deng Huawei Requirement Analysis of VIM Platform Reliability in a Three-Layer Decoupling Environment for NFV Gil Hellmann, Wind River; Xuesong Wang, Wind River; Qiao Fu, China Mobile; Jinglong Lv, China Mobile show more Description A traditional non-virtualization environment is fully integrated with the hardware platform, software platform, and service application as indivisible whole. It makes failure detection and HA much easier in north - south directions. In a virtualization environment, especially three-layer decoupling, the hardware platform, NFVI/VIM, VNF and even MANO may all come from separate vendors. This provides operators with more choices and flexibility. However, it also introduces challenges on how to achieve the same level HA as with non-virtualization environment. In this session, we will cover the following: • Common reliability strategy of traditional telecom network elements • The general HA mechanisms of VIM (OpenStack) platform today • What new requirements are brought to a VIM platform in the ETSI-MANO structure for a telecom-level high availability • The impact of various types of failures on the VMs and business programs, and some fault handling strategies performed by VIM and MANO according to our test results.
