Workshop: Cloud-native Network Functions (CNF) Seminar - Arpit Joshipura, LF Networking & Dan Kohn, Cloud Native Computing Foundation (Additional Registration Required)

Feedback form is now closed.
Two of the fastest-growing Linux Foundation projects – ONAP (part of LF Networking)  and Kubernetes (part of CNCF) – are coming together in the next generation telecom architecture.

Telcos are engaging on how their Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) could evolve into Cloud-native Network Functions (CNFs) running on Kubernetes. This interactive seminar will be co-moderated by LF Networking GM Arpit Joshipura and Cloud Native Computing Foundation executive director Dan Kohn. Among topics we plan to discuss:
  • Differences and similarities: networking & cloud native terminologies explained side by side.
  • Deeper dive into Telecom Services: Migrating & Automating Network Functions to Virtual Networking Functions to Cloud-native Network Functions (CNF)
  • Overview of Sub-Projects focusing on this migration, including Cross-Cloud CI, ONAP/OVP, FD.io/VPP etc.
  • What is the role for a service mesh-like Envoy, Istio, or Linkerd in connecting together CNFs with load balancing, canary deployments, policy enforcement, and more.
  • What is involved in telcos adopting modern continuous integration/ continuous deployment (CI/CD) tools to be able to rapidly innovate and improve their CNFs while retaining confidence in the reliability.
  • What are the differing security needs of trusted (open source and vendor-provided) code vs. running untrusted code. What's the role for security isolation technologies like gVisor or Kata?
  • How does CNI fit in? How does VPP/Ligato fit in?
  • What are the requirements on the underlying OS?
  • What are strengths and weaknesses of different network architectures such as multi-interface pods and Network Service Mesh?
  • What is the status of IPv6 and dual-stack support in K8s?
There is no charge for the seminar, but space is limited and you must pre-register. If you attend, please be willing to speak up.
