TECH TALKS

Mike McBride – Huawei / Industrial IoT and IT/OT Convergence

Mike McBride will provide a look at various Industrial IoT (IIoT) verticals including the protocols used in IT/OT convergence. He will cover several industrial use cases including healthcare, power and smart buildings. He will cover the challenges IIoT networking faces with emerging technologies and how edge computing will provide increased performance, security and reliability. Mike will discuss the various standards & opensource forums along with proposed architectures. And Mike will present new solutions being proposed to support the bandwidth, latency and security requirements within Industrial IoT.  

Muthurajan "M Jay" Jayakumar / Intel Fast Track Kit for NFVi  

This Tech Talk will cover:

      •  How developers can get faster access to advanced platform configurations to                  speed availability of optimized NFV solutions.

      •  The benefit of pre-integrated hardware plus software components with tuned                versions translates into speedy development and accelerated deployment.

      •  Developers will see mapping of ETSI NFVI Architecture components to building                buildings of Intel Select Fast Track kit.

      •  An example configuration showcasing demo applications and optimization tools            fitting with the matched h/w and s/w blocks.

 

The demo will include:

      •  Running two packet processing applications one in host and one in guest. NIC                  technology used is XXV710. The demo will highlight optimizations such as                        NUMA, QEMU Virtualization. The guest packet processing application is TRex                  packet generator and the host packet processing application is DPDK TestPMD              sample application. 


There will be learning exercises for attendees after the demo.

Dave Neary – RedHat  / Getting There From Here: Migrating Legacy Apps 

to Cloud Native

There is an anecdote about a tourist lost in the middle of the countryside in Ireland, who pulls over and asks a local, "How can I get to Galway from here?" 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. I have an application, it's running fine on a bare metal server, and now I am expected to make it resilient, scale-out, type 2, 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. The approach is not "rewrite your app from scratch", it is refactoring for incremental improvements. Dave 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.  

Akhilesh Kumar / Utilizing Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processor (codename Skylake-SP) 

for Network Functions Virtualization 

The presentation with cover the architectural advancements and changes in Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processor contrasting them against the previous Intel® Xeon® E5 v4 processor generation, specially focusing on areas relevant for networking usage.

 VNF Containerization Orchestration and Management

Keynote

Gary Loughnane & Kural Ramakrishnan / Enabling a Performant and Operationally Efficient Container Based Network  

Containerized VNFs are fast becoming the desired deployment model for Comms and Cloud Service Providers throughout the NFV transformation. However, the container orchestration engine of choice, Kubernetes, needs to evolve to first provide a foundation to support networking for NFV and from there enable intelligent delivery 

of performant containers’ based services. Only then will Kubernetes enable the performance, automation and efficient delivery of services such as MSO applications, SD-WAN, IMS, EPC. This presentation will highlight the challenges the industry faces and the actions Intel is driving with partners and the open source community in order to enable and accelerate adopting containers commercially and the move to a cloud ready network.

Eric D. Heaton / From Big Appliance to VNFs: Lessons from the 

Cable Access Network

Have you ever wondered how a network appliance “becomes a VNF?" In this session, we’ll walk through the process to understand, implement, and work with leading network operators and their TEMs/ISVs to move a given network function off big iron and into software running on standard IA servers. Further, we’ll look at exactly what features of the platform are key to achieving breakthrough performance, avoiding typical bottlenecks. The main workload featured in this talk is called a vCMTS (i.e. a cable modem network aggregation point) and highlights work done in the Cable Access market, but the process and lessons can apply to any data plane application -- especially those at the Edge.

Daniel Towner / Building efficient 5G NR base stations on Xeon Scalable Processors 

using the AVX-512 instruction set  

  

5G brings many new capabilities over 4G including higher bandwidths, lower latencies, and more efficient use of radio spectrum. However, these improvements require a large increase in computing power in the base station. Fortunately the Xeon Scalable Processor series (Skylake-SP) recently introduced by Intel has a new high-performance instruction set called AVX-512 which is capable of delivering the compute needed to support the exciting new world of 5G. 


In his talk Daniel will give an overview of the new capabilities of the AVX-512 instruction set and show why they are so beneficial to supporting 5G efficiently. The most obvious difference is that AVX-512 has double the compute performance of previous generations of instruction sets. Perhaps surprisingly though it is the addition of brand new instructions that can make the biggest improvements. The new instructions mean that software algorithms can become more efficient, thereby enabling even more effective use of the improvements in computing performance and leading to very high performance 5G NR software implementations.

5G & IoT Use Case Support

Gregory Shimansky / New model for cloud network function development – YANFF

YANFF is a set of libraries for creating and deploying cloud-native Network Functions (NFs). It simplifies the creation of network functions without sacrificing performance.

     • Higher level abstractions than DPDK. Using DPDK as a fast I/O engine for                          performance

     • Go language: safety, productivity, performance, concurrency

     • Network functions are application programs not virtual machines

     • Built-in scheduler to auto-scale processing based on input traffic. Both up and                down.


Benefits:

     • Easily leverage Intel hardware capabilities: multi-cores, AES-NI, CAT, QAT, DPDK

     • 10x reduction in lines of code

     • No need to be an expert network programmer to develop performant network                function

     • Similar performance with C/DPDK per box

     • No need to worry on elasticity - done automatically

     • Take advantage of cloud native deployment: continuous delivery, micro-services,            containers

Rashmin Patel / Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processor (codename Skylake-SP) architecture overview  

This presentation takes a closer look at the Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processor I/O subsystem which has been greatly improved to meet the needs of today’s Networking Infrastructure. In addition we introduce key software building blocks that enable the transition to Network Function Virtualization.

Naser Adas  / Bringing 5G to Life – Today

In this session you will hear about the advent of 5G and all of the great use cases that it will bring to life. In addition the session will provide insight into how these 5G applications will be brought to market with the latest infrastructure offerings from Intel such as MultiAccess Edge Computing and the FlexRAN (Radio Access Network). By leveraging the broad ecosystem of developers that will provide unique applications built on open source and standards there are endless opportunities for 5G and our next generation networks that will provide a better quality of life for all.
