Licensing issue resolved. Deployment of NGC in progress on Montreal cluster. Working around some issues. UNH Server→local server. Slice creation and E2E data flow.
UNH Resources secured through Jan 2022. Rajendra in touch with Rebaca. They need access to UNH Server (VPN), access issue. Rajendra to connect with Sveto.
Preparing another host to build the NFS Server.
Rebaca to deploy containers on the same cluster: LFN Cluster 1 (Kaloom) Emulating the network to test the core.
Running in UNH. Replicating in Montreal. Status? Synch for remote instal. Status? (Amit/Sveto)
CapGemini has access, FTP link for binaries uploading. Some access issues, working to resolve.
FPGA sent? Yes. (Nidhi) FPGA received and swapped out. Nidhi or Sam need to connect.
VPN connections for testing (Sveto/Hardik) VPN in place. GenXComm, to assess testing (RU/FlexRAN/Latency) to see if this makes sense. Ganesh to connect offline today and confirm the plan. Needs FlexRAN in place pre-testing (on FPGA). Brandon to follow up on FlexRAN installation.
Need to factor in shipping times, customs, configuration.

Notes from calls 072021
Status Check / Open Questions
Sriram: 1. Debugging the slice creation (CapGemini 5G Core) (Rajat helping). 2. Kaloom. Simplification done. Now, final integration. 3. Bring up NGC on Montreal Lab. Licensing needed. Kaloom forwarded to Hanen on Friday. Add Rajendra to the thread.
Update from Rajat: I am working with Aarna and Kaloom for the slicing demo from core perspective. We have it running in the UNH lab and now we are replicating the same in VCO (Kaloom) lab. Working to resolve it this week.
Update from Utkarsh: I am including Amit Kapoor to help you with RAN binaries. Amit Kapoor, pls help Brandon and team with RAN CNFs and remote installation. Brandon to connect with Sveto to provide that access.
Sam/Nidhi to send FPGA. Nidhi checking on this.
Sveto/Hardik connecting tomorrow on VPN connections for testing.
No other updates.
Next week: Talk through Demo options for October: What/How to show? Demo Recordings. How to frame?
Can we share what's been done in the past? Brandon to show this to kick off next week.
Louis: A "Document as you Build" approach would help expand our options. Ties into the Cookbook/Playbook approach.
Louis will explore a video/capture platform. (Loom, Ezvid, FreeCam)
