Virtual: Anuket: Scope of Anuket
  • Scope of Anuket specifications was extended since the beginning of CNTT, and that is okay
  • Anuket defines both requirements and recommendations from which the recommendations are not mandatory
  • Scope of the specifications is related to all the specs, therefore should be discussed in TSC
  • We do not have an agreement on how implementable requirements in RM should be

Use Case of UE consuming a MEC Service, while moving across MEC host service areas, requiring a relocation of the service instance across clusters

Live Demo

Future plans to integrate with free5GC + 5GRAN simulator to showcase a more real world use case scenario. 

This is an EMCO Ecosystem POC repo published from the EMCO wiki. 

EMCO: Enhancing the EMCO GUI with RBAC

An overview of how the EMCO GUI supports Admin and separate Tenant privilege levels with Role-based Access support. 

A demo was provided to demonstrate how different client logins had different views and different access rights. 

Future versions of the EMCO GUI will add additional intra-tenant role access rights for allowing tenant organization to further enable/restrict groups within their tenant view to have appropriate access rights. 

EMCO: Deploying to target clusters (and public clouds) via git

Overview of EMCO integration with the GitOps approach to cluster management and resource sync. 

  • Provides automated sync with Git Repo, better security, consistency and auditing of history

Walked through EMCO support for Fluxv1 and planned v2 support, Azure Arc plug-in support in EMCO 22.03 and how Google Anthos support will be added in 22.06 coming up. 

Automated GitOps support provides automated sync with Git Repo, for better security, consistency and auditing of history
When clusters register with EMCO, the correct GitOPs plugin can be instantiated in the EMCO Rsync framework. 

22.06 adds better Google Anthos support and other stability and feature enhancements

EMCO BackUp and Restore

Any cluster application LCM solution needs a sold Disaster Recovery solution. Aarna Networks has selected Velero solution to integrate with AMCOP commercial product based on EMCO. 

An overview and demo of Phase I manual Backup and Restore was showcased, instantiating a running cluster, creating a Velero Backup, deleting the cluster to simulate a DIsaster event, and restoring it for continued operation. 

Phase II will add a more complete integration with EMCO GUI, automating and scheduling backups, w/ support for more storage locations other then the AWS example today. 

Phase III will allow deployments of the Velero solution to target clusters and bundle the Velero solution with EMCO installations. 

EMCO: Orchestration and Demo of LCM of AnyLog using EMCO

Using EMCO, developers can deploy and manage AnyLog instances at the edge from a single point and using the AnyLog Network, manage and view the distributed edge data from a single point.

EMCO-UI demonstrated as a viable manner of deploying composite apps in EMCO, in this case AnyLog components.

EMCO: Orchestration and Service Assurance 5GC Functions with EMCO

Showed the orchestration of QCT's 5GC functions on multiple k8s clusters, using EMCO.

The ability to scale-out 5GC and UPF elements into more clusters (via EMCO) as an action automatically taken by the AF component, based on analytics. This was demonstrated.

Showed possibilities in creating closed-loop between EMCO, 5GC and NWDAF. 

(this seems to have been pasted in the wrong section: "Integration with Prometheus and ONAP CDS was shown.")

EMCO-UI again demonstrated as a viable method of deploying composite apps.

Srini shared over the bridge the advantages of using the EMCO ecosystem's KNCC and KNRC when paired with 5GC and to automate configuration:

Virtual: EMCO: Temporal and EMCO lifecycle events

Temporal is the simple, scalable open source way to write and run reliable cloud applications.

In EMCO we are introducing support for the Temporal workflow engine starting with the 22.06 release.

Temporal workflow engine has recently been added to EMCO in order to trigger actions that execute in a multitude of possible different hook points.

With EMCO we can register workflows and define the activities that need to take place.

In 22.06 the basic framework will be available, with additional improvements expected in the next release.

2022-06-16 - Anuket: RC2 - Considering RA2 Traceability and CNF Workloads for Nile - LF Networking - LF Networking Confluence

Review of proposed chapter updates

Discussion of reference granularity of RA-2 feature to conformance tests

Field trials: Importance of and inclusion of Service providers and hyperscalers
