Overview

The Open Networking Summit - EU 2019 event offers two "un-conference" areas for topic discussions, small-team breakouts etc.  We call this an "Unconference" because it's less about pre-conceived and pre-arranged formal presentations and instead allows for discussion topics of interest to "spring up" either closer to the event or at the event itself.

Availability of the Unconference sessions will be limited.  While some topics may be hand selected (like a TAC meeting, if proposed for example), most will be scheduled at the event on first-come, first-serve basis  If you have a topic you'd like to discuss at ONS and don't already see it below, please consider adding it.  If you do see a topic below that you would like to participate in, then please add your name to the list of potential attendees.  We will use those lists to determine which topics get scheduled prior to the event. 

This wiki should be freely available to edit.  Please feel free to add your session.  However, please do not delete or move someone else's session without their permission.

  • Short Description:  Test frameworks and tools for CNTT

  • Detailed Description: This is continuation of discussion started in CNTT F2F meeting in Paris on OPNFV test framework strategy for CNTT reference implementations and compliance program.
    • See related thread and this point made by Georg Kunz... we need a structured way of integrating, maintaining and running specific test cases across test tools. It must be simple to call specific test cases across all OPNFV test tools. This means that ideally the OPNFV test tools agree on a common way to do this. Potential ways:
      1. All tools integrate in Xtesting
      2. All tools agree on a common API callable from some other tool
      3. Something else?

  • Short Description:   Discuss automation requirements for MEC during the whole life cycle of MEC application. 

  • Detailed Description:  In this session ,i will introduce the whole MEC system with 5G Core.  Typically there will be a lot of facilities around MEC system. For instance,  local DNS system, hardware  or software firewall(if traffic from internet into MEC system , FW is needed).  When application is on boarding in MEC system, openstack or kubernetes will allocate virtual machine and container for applicaiton automatically. But the application can't supply the service right now. 
    Automation requirements for MEC  to speed up the service provision procedure:
    1.  Set UPF rule automatically(traffic steering) 
    2.  Set FW  rule automatically(traffic rule)
    3.  Set DNS record automatically (DNS resolving)
    4.  others...

  • Short Description:   Discuss C-RAN/O-RAN requirement on cloud platform

  • Detailed Description:  O-RAN is the evaluation C-RAN network. It seeks to drive the decoupling of RAN software from the underlying hardware platform, which producing reference designs to allow commodity hardware platforms to be leveraged for all parts of a RAN deployment, including Centralized Unit, Distributed Unit, potential Mobile Edge Computing
    applications and Radio Intelligent Controller. This session will discuss :
    1.  RAN virtualization research on accelerators
    2.  pico-stations virtualization with white box design RRU
    3.  potential AI on RAN scenario and

    • For example:
      • Sharing experiments with CNI (e.g. multus or CNI reference plugins) and discuss missing requirements
      • What are the needs of Cloud Native VNF-s from networking?
      • Which CNI-s are fulfilling these requirements?

  • Short Description:  Improving ONAP interoperability & Adoption with API Fabric

  • Detailed Description: This sessions will present a solution to simplify the consumption of APIs in ONAP and to expose operational APIs while improving interoperability with 3rd party systems. We will present how the API Fabric provides a simplified abstraction layer, exposing standard APIs, which improves the usability for end users and speeds up the productization of ONAP.

    The API fabric provides capabilities for onboarding new APIs, with plugins to convert to standard APIs, and provides complete API lifecycle management including subscription and transaction control & monitoring. The exposed manageable façade layer simplifies ONAP’s consumable interface for operations, application development or business level monitoring, avoiding deep integration with individual ONAP components.
