2 OPNFV and the OpenStack ProductWG

Gerald Kunzmann

Other (working session; 1h preferred) Operators and users In this working session we can continue the discussion from the OpenStack Summit on how to best bring together use cases and requirements from OPNFV with the OpenStack Product WG user stories. Do we want to establish contact person(s)/evangelist(s) in OPNFV for the different use cases and user stories?  
3 Programming with OpenDataPlane Matias Elo Tutorial/Demo VNF developers

This will be a tutorial and live demo on how to get started with OpenDataPlane programming. The presentation demonstrates how the same ODP application can be run on different HW platforms and underlying packet I/O types.

4 OpenDataPlane is ready for business Tapio Tallgren Lecture VNF developers, operators OpenDataPlane project has reached a major milestone with the Monarch release. This talk presents the new features of ODP and shows new performance numbers.  
5 OpenFastPath Lecture VNF developers The exponential growth in data traffic puts ever-increasing demands on the packet processing elements in the network, resulting in a need for high performance IP packet handling. This drives the emergence of a new generation of hardware-accelerated platforms as well as the creation of user space applications and libraries. The drive towards scalable high-performance functions requires an open IP stack that is extendable and can enable great performance, ease of use and portability. OpenFastPath is an open source TCP/IP stack for Linux user space that runs on the OpenDataPlane. In the presentation Ulf Bragnell introduce OpenFastPath and show that it can provide up to 20x the performance of the native Linux Kernel for forwarding workloads.

17 Failure prediction based on Ceilometer and Spark  

Linghui Zeng

Hai Liu

Tutorial, demo, sharing experiences Developers, operators, users In this talk, many challenging issues will be given, such as how to get useful data, why Ceilometer does not work well for data processing and so on. Our focus is on hardware failure prediction, because since now NFV has not been deployed extensively for users, which means what kinds of failure will happen and which metrics can be used to predict failure are the unknowable problems, however hardware failure has been extensively investigated and researched so many years. Hence, using the open hardware failure data is a good beginning for our big ambition. After trial and error ,the prediction accuracy is surprisingly high. Based on Apache Spark, which is a popular engine for large-scale data processing, the prediction is so fast and nearly real-time.  
18 Compass in C weidong Shao

Lecture, tutorial, demo and plans  Developers, operators, users Including demos and turials, this lecture will give a comprehensive report of Compass project. The details of  feautures, framework and exihibitions, and also the plans in C are introduced.

20 Functest: lessons learned and best practices for VNF test automation

Valentin Boucher

Morgan Richomme

Demo & live debate with audience with Q&A Developers, operators, users

A complex VNF test case was introduced in Brahmaputra based on an open source vIMS solution. Based on TOSCA descriptor file, it triggers the creation of several VMs including an orchestrator that deploys a complex VNF with various components and the associated test tools embed on containers. The vIMS experience test case could be used as a baseline to deal with VNF testing. This test case is also a pragmatic approach to outline the MANO role in the validation/testing phase.

Future extensions for C-Release (multi-site, VNF clustering, more complex test cases, integration with different orchestrators...) will also be presented to demonstrate that full automatic VNF deployment (including testing phase) can become a reality.

21 CI/CD & DevOps Panel Bryan Sullivan, Randy Levensalor, Deng Hui, Daniel Farrell, Fatih Degirmenci, Ulrich Kleber, Morgan Richomme Panel Developers, Operators, users Users and developers coming together to discuss what is CI/CD & DevOps, how important it is and why, expectations from each other.  
22 OPNFV MANO Requirement project Chris Donley Panel, Presentation  & live debate with audience with Q&A Open source, developer, OPNFV

Since OPNFV board expended its scope to include NFV MANO last year, several upstream open source projects have been created to develop MANO solutions.  Each solution has demonstrated its unique value in specific area. Open-Orchestration (OPEN-O) project is one of such communities.

This project proposed seeks to develop requirements for OPEN-O MANO support in the OPNFV reference platform, with the plan to eventually include OPEN-O in OPNFV as a non-exclusive upstream MANO. In particular, this project will focus on interfaces and information/data models required for coordination among various components and OPNFV platform

33 Open Baton

Giuseppe Carella

Lorenzo Tomasini

Overview presentation, demonstration and discussions

Developers, Operators, VNF developers

Open Baton provides an open source implementation of the ETSI NFV MANO specification. It is based on MANO v1.1.1 information models, and in its latest release increased the number of functionalities which could be used for interoperating with it. In particular, this presentation will focus on providing technical details about those mechanisms (VNFM integration, VIM drivers, events engine) which enable the easy integration of external components. Additionally, will be presented some of the external components that have been developed recently (autoscaling, fault management, integration tests) which make Open Baton a very modular platform and allow fast prototyping of new advanced features also in the context of the OPNFV environment. A running demonstration of the platform will be provided to the audience.  
34 Tacker

Sridhar Ramaswamy

Overview, Project Status, Roadmap, plans to integrate with C-release and open discussion on this project. Developers, Operators, VNF vendors

Tacker is an official OpenStack project building a Generic VNF Manager (G-VNFM) and a NFV Orchestrator (NFVO) to deploy and operate Network Services and Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) on an NFV infrastructure platform like OpenStack. It is based on ETSI MANO Architectural Framework and provides a functional stack to orchestrate Network Services end-to-end using VNFs. This session will recap the current status of the project and its feature, upcoming roadmap and, most importantly, will be used to hear thoughts on what features are important for the NFV operator community.

35 VNF Event Stream

 Alok Gupta (AT&T)

Overview presentation, demonstration and discussions

Developers, Operators, VNF developers

In a typical Service Assurance (SA) Environment, the VNF Provider defines and provides the format and protocol for sending telemetry data to SPs responsible for managing VNF health and lifecycle. The standards for telemetry data come in many varieties and for each particular standard, the expected actions also differ from one VNF to another. The result of a multitude of standards is that every time a new VNF or a new VNF release is introduced, implementer choice can require SPs to make changes to their SA support system that manages the VNFs. This results not only in added costs for SPs, but also in deployment delays. This project will develop OPNFV platform support for VNF event streams, in a common model and format intended for use by NFV Service Providers (SPs), e.g. in managing VNF health and lifecycle. The project’s goal is to enable a significant reduction in the effort to develop and integrate VNF telemetry-related data into automated VNF management systems, by promoting convergence toward a common event stream format and collection system
