Tutorial- Trellis+P4 Technical Deep Dive
Trellis is a multi-purpose, resilient, leaf-spine networking fabric built on white-boxes. Over the past year, we have added support for P4-capable silicon via an open-source P4 program called “fabric.p4”. By using P4, we were able to demonstrate value-added features that go beyond basic packet forwarding, such as VNF offloading and per-packet visibility using INT. Indeed, fabric.p4 has been designed with extensibility in mind, allowing anyone to add more data plane functions based on different use cases, while using the same Trellis apps on ONOS to provide resilient forwarding across the fabric.

This tutorial will be divided into two parts. In the first part, we will cover the basics of Trellis and the design of fabric.p4, focusing on the extensibility features, with examples of how we integrated support for functions such as GTP tunnel termination. The second part will include a hands-on activity where attendees will learn how to i) use Trellis with a Mininet network of BMv2 software switches, ii) extend fabric.p4 with additional functions, and iii) write ONOS application to control the added functionality.

Virtualizing SKT's 5G Infrastructure Using CloudVIM
SK Telecom (SKT) has successfully virtualized the telco infrastructure using OpenStack world first in July 2017 by following ETSI NFV architecture. SKT manages more than 90 VNFs (comprised of 1400 VMs) from different vendors, including IMS for nationwide VoLTE service and EPC for LTE data service. Resource virtualization provides infrastructure resource pool between different VNFs, reduces TCO by 45%, moreover it reduces the over three months of VNF deployment time to just 10 minutes. Despite of those advantages, VNF networks are not fully virtualized and configuration and operation require manual intervention, and their visibility and controllability are also very limited.  To overcome those limitations, we have developed the “Cloud VIM” along with various cutting-edge technologies including cloud native support, SDN based virtual network management using SONA (Simple Overlay Network Architecture), integrated monitoring system, network analytics solution, and CI/CD. We are trying to deploy the Cloud VIM into telco production, expecting the Cloud VIM enhances the flexibility and robustness of SKT’s 5G infrastructure.

Also, when 5G Phase II standard is released and the architecture is re-designed with microservice architecture, we also expect that VNF will be containerized supporting higher level operation utilizing cloud native features, such as auto scaling, auto healing, rolling upgrade etc. In this talk, I will also introduce the plan for SKT’s MANO and Cloud VIM to support containerized VNF.

ONOS-based Data Packet Acceleration Support for 5G Infrastructure
To run various types of services in a same physical infrastructure, currently, the virtual network technology has been widely adopted in data center. Telco envisioned that next generation mobile service will have heterogenous network requirements, and to fulfill this, 3GPP defined a concept named “Network Slicing” by leveraging network virtualization technology, and standardized into 5G. Nevertheless, the performance degradation using virtual network is not negligible, while Telco production requires line rate performance, this introduces a burden of adopting virtualization technology into telco production. To solve this problem, DPA (Data Packet Acceleration) technology, e.g. DPDK and Smart NIC, has been introduced. It is the only recently a telco start to adopt those technology. With this presentation, I would like to introduce the details of DPA technology, what are pros and cons, and how those technology can be provisioned and managed by ONOS.

Leveraging Stratum to Achieve Fast P4 Program Swap on Tofino
Stratum as a NOS enables the full power of P4-programmable switches, through a set of next-generation SDN APIs. The P4Runtime API not only enables protocol-independent flow-programming, it also supports re-configuring the dataplane by pushing a new P4 program to the switch. In this talk we describe how this feature is implemented in systems based on the Barefoot Tofino ASIC and how it can be used to change the "role" of the switch in the network, without having to reboot the switch or even restart any local process. This can be leveraged to simplify deployments and facilitate the sofware upgrade process. The P4 dataplane can also be customized dynamically to balance the amount of supported features with the desire to optimize for latency, power and flow table sizes. We propose to show with a live demo how this re-configuration can be performed by a SDN controller talking to a Tofino-based switch running Stratum, with minimum traffic disruption (< 50ms of packet loss).

NSSF On M-CORD Platform
Network Slicing is one of the key drivers for the Next Generation Networks. The concept had been introduced during 4G era, but it was not until the 5G Architecture was defined that the Network Slice Selection Function (NSSF) became a core part of the mobile network. Our scenario proposes an open source implementation of this network function. It aims to exploit the native capabilities of the CORD platform for creating slices. By using the M-CORD profile deployed as a Cord in a Box and including open source mobile components, we have achieved an E2E connection test-bed suitable for laboratories that lack equipment for deploying a full CORD-POD. Furthermore, we have extended the capabilities of the E2E connection by adding the NSSF component, thus allowing the selection of slices (Instances of SPGW) based on the information that UE provides at the moment of connection. The eNodeB and EPC are Open Air Interface (OAI) components, a suite of open sour projects developed by EURECOM. Modifications were required to the EPC in order to communicate with the NSSF for slice selection. Following 3GPP standard procedures, we added a step between the registration of the UE into the network and SPGW session establishment by coding an Interaction between the vMME and NSSF. The NSSF has a XOS service in charge of collecting the network information related to Slices (SPGW information). Once an Instance of a VM that houses the NSSF comes up, it stores the full topology information in a local data base. This Information will be used every time a request comes from the vMME to the NSSF for slice selection. Our testbed components are fully virtualized, due to that, the eNodeB follows an OAISIM (OAI UE Emulation/Simulation) implementation. The UE information can be manipulated in order to simulate multiple devices with distinctive information that is going to be used for Slice Selection. Our Scenario follows a M-CORD 4.1 implementation as it was the newest version available when we started our Test-bed design and development. In it, we showcase how new Network Components can be integrated with the M-CORD Platform to extend functionalities of a mobile network.

ONF Wireless Transport Modeling and Implementation
The Wireless Transport Project (WTP) group, a subgroup of the ONF Open Transport Config & Control (OTCC) Project, has been defining open source information models for control of wireless transport devices and testing their implementation and interoperability across multiple vendors, under the sponsorship of Telefonica, AT&T and Deutsche Telekom.  The information models address the air interface between microwave and millimeterwave wireless devices as well as the use of Ethernet and OTN connectivity to connect wireless transport domains.  The models are fully aligned with ONF work on the Common Information Model being carried out in the ONF OIMT Project. This presentation
provides an update on the status of the work on wireless transport modeling and associated PoCs taking place in ONF and ONAP.

The wireless information model has been published as ONF TR-532, and an accompanying document, TR-545, defining a profile for the use of Netconf/YANG for wireless transport devices has recently been approved by the ONF OTCC Project.  This work has been validated through a series of Proof of Concept tests at different operator labs, including the most recent PoC that focused on integration of the wireless transport work into an ONAP-based orchestration architecture and application of the model to the RAN environment.  Following on this successful test, a 5th PoC is to take place in end November that will integrate with a related ONAP PoC.

About The New CORD Platform And Its Deployments
The CORD community has extensively deployed the CORD platform and its applications in a variety of Service Provider laboratories. This allowed both developers to better understand requirements, and operators to experience how such new-generation, open-source telco platforms should be deployed on the field. The feedback of such activities has been collected and feeded into the CORD backlog, the platform has been completely re-designed, and released in 2018. The new platform is distributed as a set of containers that can run on top of any Kubernetes cluster, drawing a clear demarcation line between CORD and Operators’ responsibilities. Major advantages of this approach include separation of concerns, well defined abstractions and modularity, thus shifting the focus of the CORD Community from infrastructure provisioning to the implementation of CORD core functionalities, and leaving at the same time Operators the freedom to decide how to provision their infrastructure, from bare metal systems up to Kubernetes. The presentation will describe the new CORD platform architecture and its components. It will give a practical overview of a typical deployment scenario, and will report the lesson learnt from previous deployment experiences.

Flightplan: Dataplane Disaggregation and Coordination for In-network Computing
Today’s datacenter networks are built from a diverse set of devices that range from fully programmable CPUs and FPGAs, to programmable, network-optimized NPUs, to high-throughput programmable dataplane ASICs. But currently these devices have different capabilities and are programmed disjointly as independent entities, and this complicates the implementation and composition of more sophisticated in-network services.

As a solution, we introduce Flightplan, a framework that enables a cohesive approach to extend complex dataplane programs across heterogeneous hardware. Flightplan automatically splits a single program into a distributed system running on multiple interconnected dataplanes. It introduces a new, portable meta-programming construct to delimit dataplane subprograms and exploits automated code generation to simplify the writing and debugging of complex in-network services.
We implement a Flightplan prototype for P4 and illustrate it using a new suite of in-network functions that target diverse hardware. We show that Flightplan allows P4 programs to exploit heterogeneous programmable dataplanes to improve overall performance, while still retaining a simple and portable programming model.

OpenOLT - A Common XGS-PON/GPON OLT Adaptation Layer for VOLTHA/SEBA
VOLTHA provides a layer of abstraction over vendor-specific and white-box PON hardware devices. On its northbound interface, VOLTHA abstracts the PON network to appear as a programmable Ethernet switch to an SDN controller. On its southbound side, VOLTHA communicates with PON devices through vendor or device specific OLT and ONU adapters. VOLTHA has adapters contributed by OEM vendors and the community for both proprietary and white box devices. Contrary to what one might expect - the adapters are not just a translation layers; they are fairly complex, state-full modules that implement the core of PON device management. Adding support for a new hardware device entails a fairly good understanding VOLTHA internals which can be daunting especially for smaller white-box vendors with limited software development resources. One of the objectives of the current VOLTHA 2.0 release is to introduce a common OLT adapter that enables rapid onboarding of new white-box and proprietary OLT devices. This new adapter, called OpenOLT, exposes a well-defined protobuf-based, vendor-agnostic gRPC interface on the southbound side. OLT OEM/ODM device vendors are now able to re-use the OpenOLT adapter and focus on implementing the gRPC OpenOLT agent on their device. OpenOLT is actively being developed with code contributions from ONF, AT&T Foundry and members of the VOLTHA community and currently has support for OLT devices from EdgeCore, CIG and Iskratel. This paper presents the motivation, design, interfaces, current status and future development of OpenOLT.

XOS: The Service Composition and Management Layer for CORD and SEBA
This presentation describes XOS, a service composition layer used by CORD and SEBA. XOS works at the abstract service level, focusing on how to integrate, configure, compose, and manage the lifecycle of services. XOS supports a variety of opensource technologies, such as Kubernetes, OpenStack, VOLTHA, and ONOS. XOS can leverage existing Infrastructure-as-a-Service to deploy the compute resources of a service, or XOS can integrate already-deployed services. XOS is more than just a registry of services, it is also a mechanism for describing the interactions between services, and for developing workflows that span services. XOS services are inherently multi-tenant, making it possible to both build service meshes that span multiple security domains, and to construct fine-grain service chains that traverse the entire mesh.
Three technologies make up XOS:
(1) a data model provides abstractions for services and tenants,
(2) a generative toolchain allows extension of the data model, and
(3) a goal-directed synchronization framework applies the data model to the services.
This presentation covers each of these three aspects of XOS, provides examples motivated by common SEBA services, and shows how XOS is now being used in a multi-cloud environment that spans edge and commodity clouds.

Securing XOS Services on Edge Using Istio Citadel Central Authority
XOS Service orchestration framework enables services to be managed as as first-class abstraction, regardless of where these tenant services are hosted. Since multi-tenancy is a staple of cloud services, it is imperative that managing service credentials directly effects dataplane service connectivity. Thus, services’ authentication and verifiability requirement directly follows from XOS's Model-Controller-View programmability framework that allows access to those resources.

We introduce and discuss Citadel, Istio’s Certificate Authority, to improve edge security by automating the issuance and rotation of certificates for XOS services. Firstly, we focus on the use case of provisioning SPIFFE identities as X509 certificates for a set of workloads that make up an XOS service in a point of presence. Secondly, we describe how XOS can be used with Citadel to build a reliable system for certificate management. Finally, we’ll uncover the workflow protocol used for automatic certificate issuance, including how authentication of the workload and its execution environment can be performed.

Accelerating VNF Data Plane in FPGA Based P4-programmable Acceleration Card
Network function virtualization is in full swing. Every day a purpose-built networking box is replaced by a software application running at commodity x86 hardware. Even the switch - a very basic network device now has its software counterpart, and it’s a very popular one! To further strengthen this trend, vendors bring FPGA based Programmable Acceleration Cards into the game. Programmable Acceleration Cards can augment the CPU performance in the data plane and improve single physical machine throughput. Since NFV is all about the ecosystem and collaboration, PACs (Programmable Acceleration cards) must be programmed and operated in a standard way. The P4 language and P4Runtime API, both being open standards backed by strong consortiums, has gained a lot of traction in this regard. P4-programmable Acceleration Cards run at network line rate and perform many of the compute-intensive per-packet tasks: encapsulation, decapsulation, ACLs, load balancing, statistics, cryptography, DPI, QoS, and others. All fully defined by network architect, not the hardware vendor. The great part is that P4-programmable Acceleration Cards still fully support virtualization. The same x86 server that was running vEPC yesterday is running vBNG/BRAS today and will run an application-aware load balancer tomorrow. Thanks to this full P4 programmability, FPGA-based Programmable Acceleration Cards are now a standard, commodity part of a server rather than single-purpose accelerators.

Partially disaggregated and ONOS-controlled transport network for 5G services demonstration.
We present a partially disaggregated and ONOS-controlled optical network interfaced with a convergent Service Orchestration module (a.k.a., Service Orchestrator or RDCL 3D as illustrated below) to control in a cohesive way 5G CORE, 5G RAN and 5G TRANSPORT service domains:
  • Service Orchestrator deploys the platforms as well as the services of 5G CORE and 5G RAN domains,
  • The network control platform of 5G TRANSPORT domain is already deployed as a partially open disaggregated transport network controller i.e., ODTN Controller, Open Line System and terminal devices. Service Orchestration deploys a 5G TRANSPORT service by requesting network slices to ODTN controller through TAP1 2.1 RESTCONF interface. Each network slice is to ODTN Controller.
  • Network slice service requests are processed by ODTN Controller as TAPI optical connectivity and photonic connectivity service requests and then ODTN Controller provisions automatically the end-to-end multi-layer connectivity services to the devices through OpenConfig over NETCONF and OpenFlow.
The demonstration will be performed by accessing remotely our optical network control platform lab and by configuring and controlling the terminal devices.

Envoy as an Application Router Suitable for Edge Computing
As network functions are fine-grained virtualized, several architectural differences emerge to handle L7 rules and policies on the edge. For instance, large-scale distributed applications mandates low state overhead, while minimizing configuration consumed for greater policy change agility. Application-level routers must closely follow applications to minimize attack surface. These application-level routers are thus expected to have minimal overhead, carry light vCPU and vMem footprints, and also have ability to make independent "edge decisions". Distributing applications to edge opens greater attack surface, and hence authentication, and data encryption policies are assumed before deployment. Effectively, an application edge router must combine various Virtual Network Functions (VNF) functionality (e.g. edge cloud vFW, APT, and vDPI) to effectively be able to achieve a unique distributed application at scale. In addition, such an edge router must act as a gateway for inter-domain routing.

We begin by discussing architectural similarities and differences between a typical network administrative domain routing semantics and a distributed application router that is transplanted to edge cloud. We introduce and showcase Envoy, a lightweight application L7 router that support various application protocols including HTTP, and gRPC. First, we show how Envoy acts as an effective edge traffic handler for L7 rules and policies. Secondly, we discuss Envoy route definition semantics that enables extending them to various other non-HTTP protocols, which are very essential to dynamic policy adaptation in large clusters. Thirdly, we choose a complex multi-cluster deployment, and demonstrate techniques that Envoy uses to act as a routing gateway, enforcing service-to-service control, policing, and telemetry across clusters. In doing so, routing filters are essential, and we use a supported Istio Pilot control-plane to show programmability. In doing so, we demonstrate how Envoy acts as a bump-in-the wire for certain egress services, but defers mTLS processing to the edge for most other services.

Leverage Stratum and P4 to Achieve Granular Per-packet Telemetry and Visibility
Stratum as a NOS enables the full power of P4-programmable switches, through a set of next-generation SDN APIs.  P4.org has defined a novel open framework called “In-band Network Telemetry” (INT) that enables collection of end-to-end real-time state across Virtual and Physical networks directly in the data-path. In this framework P4 language can be used in a natural way to express the kind of packet parsing and modifications required to insert the Telemetry data.   In this talk, we describe how INT and fine grain telemetry can be enabled in a P4 dataplane and managed by Stratum. A demo will be showcased to demonstrate end-to-end visibility and rich analytics in a stratum enabled network with a P4 program incorporating L2, L3 and data-plane Telemetry functionality.

Using INT to Feed the ML Monster
This talk describes an experiment that uses network telemetry collected via P4 INT and feed to a machine learning (ML) system to predict/detect network congestion state and use closed-loop control to dynamically modifiy the network to alleviate congestion.

The purpose of this experiment it so understand the capabilities that P4 INT enables and how using P4 INT as a telemetry data source compares to traditional network polling for telemetry.
As part of this experiment, the network load attributed to telemetry gathering will be studied to understand how / if P4 INT reduces the source (network and compute) for telemetry gathering. Additionally, the impact of fine grain v course grain telemetry on ML will be investigated.

This presentation will explain the ONF Core model TR-512, a standardized implementation neutral representation of things and the relationship between those things in the SDN problem space. The presentation will show how the model has been developed through many years of practical experience.

The presentation will work through the things explaining their relevance and application including:
•    Specific network functions focussing on virtualized termination and forwarding designed to        represent any network
•    Generalized processing functionality designed to represent any abstract function
•    Real physical equipment specifically representing FRUs, non-FRUs, strands etc
•    Control functions related to presentation of views, closure of loops etc
•    System/scheme specifications representing the structures of systems

The presentation will explain how the model can be applied at any level of abstraction to any control/orchestration/automation layer and will work through the approach used to construct view model using TAPI as an example. The TAPI model is a Pruned and Refactored derivative of the Core model. The presentation will highlight how the TAPI model drives tooling to generate Yang and via Yang to generate Swagger definitions etc.

Some of the general principles and patterns, such as the Component-System and recursive abstraction patterns, will be exposed during the presentation.

The First Step of Service Assurance -Telemetry Framework Introduction Based on CORD Environment
From the open source to the commercial production level, many factors need to take into considerations for Service Assurance purpose.  QCT, as an infrastructure solution provider, would like to propose Telemetry as a Service (TaaS) to be the very first step of service assurance consolidation.  Differentiate from tradition TaaS architecture, QCT tries to provide a comprehensive monitoring system of NFVI including rich hardware checksum mechanism in a decentralized & multi-level mode and integrating out of band (OOB) monitoring systems. Hence, operators will have a full understanding of the overall resource utilization of NFVI.  Moreover, all data log will be implemented into Analysis System to provide fault analysis and instant alerting activities to operators.  QCT's TaaS will be based on CORD environment with commodity HW components.

Vendor Agnostic Pipeline for ONOS and Stratum
We propose a general switch pipeline for ONOS that is vendor agnostic. Most of the current P4 programs are based on the v1Model, which requires substantial effort to map to various vendor ASICs. In addition, legacy functionality such as routing, bridging, ILM, need to be rewritten. By adopting a common pipeline such as the one described by SAI.p4, this legacy functionality is already defined by the community that includes most switching hardware vendors (Broadcom, Cisco, Mellanox, Marvel, Barefoot, Innovium, Centec). A common P4 Runtime agent can be implemented using SAI as the southbound API that will be ASIC vendor agnostic and NOS agnostic (Sonic, Open Switch, and potentially Stratum). In addition, programmable functionality can be introduced using a recent contribution to SAI called flexSAI. This framework enables the P4 programmer to enhance the existing SAI pipeline such as gateway functionality, in-band telemetry, etc.

daPIPE: a DAta Plane Incremental Programming Environment
This talk presents daPIPE, a DAta Plane Incremental Programming Environment, that supports a developer in adding data plane features to a network device running a data plane program and a corresponding network operating system, such as ONOS, NXOS, or Cumulus Linux. Adding features to the data plane of a closed network device or an open network software stack (i.e., the data plane program associated to a network operating system developed for an open platform) leads to a number of challenges, mostly stemming from the fact that P4 was not designed for modular or incremental programming. Although an effort in this direction has started within the Language Design Working Group, the currently available version of the language and the related software development tools assume that a program is written by a single programmer or a group of programmers working together. This is problematic as the user might not want to have to familiarize with a P4 program shipped with a turn-key box or downloaded from an open-source repository, having to deal with its extent and complexity, for the sake of just adding a few lines of code. Moreover, modifying the native P4 program can compromise the associated network operating system ability to properly control the native data plane functions, which would make them ineffective.

We discuss how daPIPE addresses the above challenges and demonstrate how it can be used to add custom features to a switching system featuring a pre-existing data plane and network operating system. As a concrete example, we deploy daPIPE with a Cisco Nexus 34180YC, based on Barefoot Networks’ Tofino P4-programmable forwarding engine, to address a well-known use case published by Fox Advanced Technology on Github (https://github.com/FOXNEOAdvancedTechnology/ts_switching_P4): switching media flows based on the RTP timestamp.

How To Build Distributed Applications In ONOS
The engine of ONOS is its distributed applications platform, and central to building distributed applications on ONOS are its distributed primitives. Primitives provide application developers the building blocks needed to create scalable, fault-tolerant applications. Such applications can range in complexity from basic persistence and replication to intricate applications that control concurrent access to shared resources through partitioning, leader election, or distributed locking. But while distributed primitives can look a lot like the data structures and synchronization primitives Java developers work with every day, in practice, when deployed in distributed contexts, they can have limitations that may often be difficult to recognize and which when left unaccounted for can impact both the stability and scalability of distributed applications.

In this presentation, Jordan Halterman will identify those limitations for application developers. The presentation will provide a high level overview of the primitives exposed to ONOS developers for building distributed applications and discuss some of the pitfalls to avoid when building distributed applications in ONOS, with a focus on identifying distributed primitive code smells, avoiding performance bottlenecks, and handling a variety of complex failure scenarios in distributed applications.

Strategy and Use Cases For Incremental Insertion Of Stratum/P4 In Field-Deployed Network Devices
In this talk I would like to present few approaches, which networking gear vendors can consider to incrementally introduce P4 in their existing product line. I would like to introduce the approaches of “Stratum controlled P4 Sandboxes” and “Pushing P4 defined forwarding pipeline chunks through control plane’s northbound API”. We have successfully tried these approaches in Juniper. To give practical example I would introduce the specific use case of “Flexible Tunnels” in which a controller controls a part of forwarding plane topology, defined in P4, to define and dynamically change tunnel encapsulations in data plane.

These pragmatic approaches, apart from providing a reasonable path for networking vendors to adopt P4, would make a lot of sense for various reasons. Existing data plane code (think of NPUs) of various networking vendors has value which has been created over a long period of time. Defining (re-writing ) the complete data plane in P4, which would involve compiler backend changes and changing the existing local control planes’ south-bound interface to P4Runtime) for all the features, which are currently supported by vendors’ routers and switches, would require significant development and testing efforts. Moreover, some customers may not want to assume complete ownership of control plane. They may not either be equipped (read resource constraints) or do not want to handle/rewrite P4 enabled control plane (even if vendors are willing to provide P4 programmable data plane) for features which are already available from vendors’ existing field-proven control-plane and data-plane code of the vendors.

TACOS-WR: The (Almost Completely) Open Source Whitebox Router
We introduce BISDN Linux and baseboxd, an Open Source SDN framework that can run either on or off switch.  baseboxd is a netlink-to-OF-DPA translator that allows the use of standard Linux network applications without having to write SDN controller apps.  BISDN Linux is a switch operating system that comes for free and runs on a handful of data center whitebox switches (Edge-core, Delta, Quanta, Celestica). in addition to being free (as in 'free beer') it also offers an application development kit allowing developers to fix bugs and develop own applications on real hardware.  In its simplest form, BISDN Linux exposes ofagent and can be integrated into ONOS and Trellis. Moreover, by running baseboxd and a routing agent like FreeRangeRouting directly on the switch, Open Source Routing on hardware becomes reality. The combination of FreeRangeRouting, baseboxd and BISDN Linux creates a low-cost SDN platform for small enterprises and academia.

Using Bazel to improve build stability and enable codebase disaggregation
Starting with the most recent release, ONOS has transitioned from a fork of the Buck build system to Bazel as the official build tool for the project. This talk will explore how Bazel has increased build stability, how the plugin system has allowed us build everything without modifying the tool, and how Bazel's external workspace feature has enabled us to begin codebase disaggregation. The talk will conclude with a brief demonstration of the tool in action and pointers for developers transitioning from Buck.

Nalej: Standardized Low-latency Computing Across the Edge
Daisho is introducing the Nalej™ Platform, redefining the edge by standardizing resources and workloads across networks and infrastructure ranging from IoT devices, mobile devices and edge gateways to private bare-metal and public cloud instances.

The Nalej™ Platform lets developers define workloads together with a descriptor detailing resource, capability and security requirements as well as interconnectivity within and between applications. Workloads are deployed on appropriate resources in a completely transparent way, while being analyzed continuously for opportunities for optimization by re-orchestrating and/or replicating (parts of) the application as needed.

With the Nalej™ Platform we propose a Digital Edge Transformation, where CORD is seen as a workload that can be orchestrated and optimized on geo-distributed infrastructure. This simplification of deployment allows for a much more distributed and diverse resource footprint without added operational complexity. Using ARM devices with a low power and cooling footprint can bring CORD functionality all the way to the edge of the network, outside the Central Office.

SONA: A Carrier Grade Data Center Network Management Solution
Propelled by the maturity of technologies such as network function virtualization (NFV) and software-defined networking (SDN), softwarized-networking is drastically changing the way telco infrastructures are architected, implemented and operated. We have witnessed that the physical network function (PNF) have been gradually faded out and replaced by virtual network function (VNF) at telco environment; and we believe that this trend will continue, so that all telco functions will be eventually virtualized in near future. In line with this technology transition, we SK Telecom initiated the Simplified Overlay Networking Architecture (SONA) project in 2016, aims to manage carrier-grade data center network by leveraging SDN technology. SONA is an ONOS based open source project, provides an integration with commercial cloud platforms (e.g., OpenStack, Kubernetes), uses a set of network virtualization technologies (e.g., VLAN, VxLAN) to provide fully independent virtual networks for telco services. In this presentation, we would like to share our efforts on commercializing SONA at SK Telecom, and introduce a set of new features that have been recently added to SONA including curated jenkins CI/CD, data plane/control plane monitoring, automated troubleshooting, control plane failover and etc. A brief SONA roadmap will also be updated.

Open19™ Framework for Edge Cloud Solutions
The open source software stack and open hardware standards has created an unprecedented shift in the way how network automation and infrastructure solutions are built on the edge.  With the emergence of Akraino stack, edge cloud will require a highly distributed architecture with thousands of small, micro-regional data centers being added at the extreme edge of the network. This is where Open19™ hardware can solve the issue: the open source hardware standard specifies a cage which fits in any 19” rack and allows for servers of four different form factors (full width, half width, single height, double height) for edge cloud deployments.  Flex, a founding member of the Open19™ consortium is working towards making Open19™ hardware available to the Akraino community for testing and integration. In this talk, we will provide an overview of the Open19™ implementation by Flex and demonstrates the benefits of integration of Akraino edge stack with Open19™ based hardware which is both interoperable and interchangeable in any open 19” rack environment.

PANEL: Innovation + Open: Meeting Mobile Operator Expectations?
To meet the demands of the Fourth Industrial Revolution and build out their 5G networks, mobile operators are transforming their Central Offices into virtualized telco data centers built with open source hardware and software. Their goal? Accelerate innovation, reduce costs, and break vendor lock-in.

But the jury is still out on whether open source will actually deliver on its promise to accelerate innovation while lowering costs. While mobile operators have been working to be first-to-market with 5G in 2018, have commercial 5G deployments include open components? And when open hardware and software are “free,” where’s the incentive for vendors to make money?

This presentation will provide insight into:
•    The cross-industry efforts to create robust open reference architectures – and where mobile operators are investing their time and resources in these efforts  
•    Current lab trials of open architectures and what is needed to make commercial deployments a reality – Radisys and partners will share lessons learned from working with tier-one mobile operators, including AT&T and Deutsche Telekom  
•    The changing RoI model and how vendors can still make money in this new open ecosystem

Distributed Systems In ONOS With Atomix 3
ONOS is built from the ground up as a distributed-first SDN controller, with scalability and fault-tolerance as key attributes. Safely and efficiently managing software-defined networks in a distributed controller requires a wide array of complex distributed systems protocols that provide unique and often contrasting consistency and performance guarantees, making many off-the-shelf solutions inadequate for ONOS. Because of this, ONOS has long shipped with various custom implementations of distributed protocols and primitives developed as part of its core. But these tools are broadly applicable to distributed systems outside of software-defined networking, as well, so over the last two years an extensive effort has been underway to revamp and repackage them for general consumption by the open source community. The realization of that effort is Atomix 3.

Atomix 3 is a new stand-alone reactive framework for building fault tolerant distributed systems. The culmination of 5+ years of distributed systems development in both Atomix and ONOS core, it generalizes and abstracts the proven distributed systems primitives and protocols used in ONOS. The Owl release is the first ONOS release to ship with a new cluster architecture based on Atomix 3.
In this presentation, Jordan Halterman will provide an overview of Atomix 3 and the features used to achieve fault tolerance and scalability in ONOS. The talk will focus on the abstraction and generalization of ONOS distributed systems primitives and protocols in Atomix, present the new ONOS cluster architecture, and discuss how Atomix 3 facilitates service discovery, intra-cluster communication, replication, and coordination in ONOS 1.14.

Subscriber Aware Dynamic Service Function Chaining
SDN & NFV Based Dynamic Service Function Chaining (SFC) provides the ability to define an ordered list of a network services and virtual functions (e.g. firewalls, load balancer).  These services are then chained together in the network to create a service chain.  This concept provides the infrastructure (controller, chain logic, chain configuration, northbound APIs etc.) needed for controller to provision a service chain in the network.
SDN&NFV based SFC will provide;
●    Ability to steer traffic to the appropriate functions.
●    Automatic service provisioning
●    Simple, instant and flexible chain configuration
●    Expandable service functions and chains
●    Deploy new revenue generating services fastly.
●    Solve the operational complexity of existing methods.
