Distributed Cloud for Telco Networks and Edge - Bill Lambertson, IBM
Now, more than ever, Telecommunications providers want the ability to develop, deploy and manage 5G Network Services and Edge Applications in any cloud environment —on premises, on any cloud, and at the edge - in an open cloud-native based architecture. But when you need to do this across a hybrid multi-cloud environment you can run into difficulties due to interoperability constraints, fragmented visibility, inconsistent security and compliance, and operational complexity.

This session will discuss how IBM Cloud Satellite -a "distributed cloud" built on Red Hat open technologies and supported by an extensive partner ecosystem- can solve these problems with a fully managed container-first cloud solution for Telco Networks and Edge; delivered as-a-service from the IBM Public Cloud and deployed anywhere you need them —on premises, on any cloud, and at the edge -giving you and your teams more time to focus on the innovative work that will drive better outcomes for your business.

Lightning Talk: Cloud Native Test Platform - CNTP - Kanagaraj Manickam & Kalyankumar Asangi, Huawei Technologies India
In Telco industry migration, Network function(NF) is evolving as VNF & CNF i.e, software from hardware form. And it is important to test these functions delivered in different software forms before using in different Operator environments. So the need for a test platform is a must.

CNCF Kubernetes is evolving as the de-facto orchestrator for any domain and provides customer resource definition (CRD) to embed application orchestration along with infra orchestration.
By addressing various features provided by the VNF Test Platform as a native CRD controller in Kubernetes, which becomes a de-facto orchestrator for the test domain. So Telco vendors & operators can on-board various test cases developed in different software forms along with CNF and VNF to test, certify and benchmark NF(s).

Multi-Cluster Federation: Should Networking Impact The Solution? - Anil Kumar Vishnoi & Thomas D. Nadeau, Red Hat
Federation in software is a broad and complex problem. Kubernetes is facing this as it’s next challenge which is specifically to provide a solution to the federation of multiple clusters at a high scale and level of networking performance. We have found that this is easier said than done as this space has a wide range of variation including size, data, networking, deployment logistics, etc.

We outline this problem statement from a networking perspective. We do this first and foremost because we have found that how networking is implemented in a k8s cluster to be a critical aspect of any large scale deployment. Furthermore, we will discuss some available solutions in federation (e.g Istio, KubeFed), and explore how the design of these solutions is impacted by various network connectivity models, and the design patterns emerging out of these solutions catering to various networking requirements. Finally, we touch on performance impacts.

Load Balancing 101 in Kubernetes - Christopher Luciano & Srinivas Brahmaroutu, IBM
Load balancing is a widely used term to describe distributing network traffic across multiple endpoints. However, it behaves differently in different contexts. This talk will reveal the essence of various kinds of load balancing mechanisms in Kubernetes, and demonstrate how to implement a customized L4 Ingress controller.

Here is an agenda:

• Service level load balancing
• What does externalTrafficPolicy mean? Is it topology aware?
• What is the difference of IPTables mode and IPVS mode? And how efficiency differs underneath?
• L7 Ingress load balancing
• How current L7 (http/https) workloads are distributed?
• How is the API Ingress relates with underlying Service endpoints? And how a nginx/envoy ingress controller plays in it?
• L4 Ingress load balancing
• What is a Kubernetes LoadBalancer and how it relates to IaaS NLB?
• How can I build a customized extension to ensure LoadBalancer shared like a L4 Ingress?

Securing a Network Virtualized with Containers and Kubernetes: Example Solutions and Current Gaps - Samuli Kuusela, Ericsson & Amy Zwarico, AT&T
Virtualization is evolving to containerized workloads orchestrated by Kubernetes because of simpler deployment and management than with virtual machines. However, there are concerns that containers are not as secure as virtual machines, and that Kubernetes orchestration can introduce additional risks.

These concerns, both real and perceived, will be described by the speakers, with specific concentration on the risk to the security of the container isolation model. The heart of the talk is a presentation of joint efforts by CNTT and ONAP to define practical security architectures, controls and tests for NFVi with Kubernetes that addresses the realities of such deployments, such as ensuring isolation among cloud native network functions (CNF) with differing operating system privilege requirements. Finally, the speakers present both hardware and software isolation solutions for sandboxing less trusted Edge workloads.

Cloud Federation in IoT & Edge Applications - Charif Mahmoudi, Siemens Corporate Technology & Robert Bohn, National Institute of Standards and Technology
Internet of Things (IoT) architectures are usually backed by Cloud platform that provides storage, analytics, and control capabilities for the devices. Large-scale IoT solution requires advanced interoperability features due to heterogeneity of cloud services. Cloud federation paradigm offers a huge potential to ease the deployment and reduce the cost. Aspect such as resources broker, common access API, and management can untangle IoT architecture from the current convoluted design that, eventually, hit the wall of maintainability and scalability.
Join Dr. Robert Bohn, Cloud Program Manager at NIST, and Dr. Charif Mahmoudi, Software Architect at Siemens, to learn about:
•Concepts behind the NIST Cloud Federation Computing Reference Architecture (CFRA).
•Challenges related to interoperability and portability of data among cloud IoT platforms.

OPNFV Functest and Xtesting in Orange's RFP - Cédric Ollivier & Eric Debeau, Orange
Network virtualization has dramatically modified our architectures which requires more automation and powerful testing tools. Orange is now leading the code contributions in OPNFV through Functest, a collection of state of the art virtual infrastructure test suites including automatic VNF testing and Xtesting, a simple framework to accelerate the adoption of CI/CD best practices.

They have been used internally both to consolidate our end-to-end networking testing strategy and to help our skill transformation.Xtesting and Functest are now respectively mentioned in our RFP to smoothly integrate all third-party test cases in our chains and to deeply verify the interfaces between the infrastructure and the VNFs.

This presentation will also emphasize that this 2 tools are currently promoted by CNTT which should generalize this strategy to other main Operators.

How (and Why) Yelp Built a "Smart" HTTP Ingress Proxy - Chris Kuehl, Yelp
With the adoption of microservices, organizations face a challenge: how to implement shared behaviors across services written in different languages, running on different hosts, without sacrificing performance or developer velocity?

Solutions such as sharing code lead to bloated services and restricting what language a service can be written in. They also make it hard to roll out upgrades: a change to a shared library might require updating dozens of services.

At Yelp, we built a "smart" HTTP proxy on top of OpenResty, nginx, and Lua which lets us move complexity into the infrastructure itself. It now fronts all traffic at Yelp, parsing, shaping, and routing requests. It has enabled us to have smaller and more efficient services.

This talk will cover why Yelp favors "smarts in the infrastructure" and the creation of a routing service. It will also discuss why we chose to build on top of an open source proxy, and how it enabled us to launch a critical service within just a few weeks.

Injecting Security to the Cloud - Susan Hinrichs, Verizon Media
In the last few years, Yahoo applications have been moving from Yahoo-only data centers to a hybrid cloud model of corporate data centers and public cloud resources. Once Yahoo was acquired by Verizon, the need to coordinate between Yahoo and Verizon data centers was added to the mix. Moving from a simple single data center model to a multi-origination model required the applications to move from a simple minded authentication model that relied to a large degree on knowledge of corporate IP addresses. In addition application communication between data-center entities required strong encryption when crossing the Internet. Verizon Media leveraged two open source products to securely enable this hybrid cloud migration: Athenz for authentication and authorization, and Apache Traffic Server for consistent policy enforcement and communication encryption. In this presentation Susan will describe how these open source technologies were used and highlight the challenges encountered.

CI-CT-CD, Devops Loop for the Future Telco Cloud - Fu Qiao, China Mobile
One of the original intentions of NFV is to decrease the TTM of Telco. As most of the Telco Operators are moving their network to the cloud, they are also keen to transform their service launching process in order to fit into the new cloud. In this talk, we would like to share the DevOps loop China Mobile has built from Vendors labs to China Mobile’s Integration Lab and to the NFV commercial Cloud located in Guangdong Province. Such a loop, which we called as CI-CT-CD (Continuous Integration-continuous Testing – Continuous Delivery), provides the capability for Telco Operators to quickly and continuously test the up-to-date software innovation and deliver it to the cloud for customer use. With the help of such a loop, we are capable of testing a new NFVi software update in 30hours and deliver it to the commercial cloud in one day. In this talk, we would like to share the experience and lessons learned for such a new approach. We would also like to announce our plan for contributing to OPNFV 2.0.
