Monday, September 23 // 8:45 – 10:15 // Okapi 3
The Cloud Native Network Function (CNF) Testbed is a CNCF initiative to provide a neutral space for exploring and evaluating open source networking technologies and their interoperability. The initiative fosters cross-community collaboration and includes contributors from FD.io CSIT, Network Service Mesh and OpenStack among others. This tutorial will walk through how users can provision the hardware and cluster infrastructure on Packet bare-metal machines as well as the deployment of various telecom-focused use cases onto those clusters. There will be time for Q/A as well as looking at the implementation for some components of the CNF Testbed. Attendees should leave this tutorial with an understanding of how to deploy the CNF Testbed with their own Packet accounts and to contribute to the CNF Testbed initiative.
Tutorial: 5G Network Test with OpenTAP - Sponsored by Keysight Technologies
Tutorial: 5G Network Test with OpenTAP
Sponsored by Keysight Technologies
Monday, September 23 // 10:45 – 12:15 // Gorilla 1
Please join us for a workshop focused on applying OpenTAP to test 5G networks and NFV systems. This workshop will introduce OpenTAP, an open source test sequencer optimized for speed, simplicity, and scalability. OpenTAP has been released as an open source project in June 2019. OpenTAP can be used for many types of test sequencing, from driving actual hardware to cloud-based solutions. OpenTAP is used today in manufacturing test and in a 5G network and NFV test research including trial networks.
The workshop will cover the architecture and main components of the OpenTAP core code and the SDK for the development of OpenTAP plugins. After a short introduction, part of the session will provide a walk-through for developing plugins, demonstrating how OpenTAP can be used in the 5G NFV test space. Participants will be invited to apply hands-on the software using OpenStack Heat API, IxLoad and Yardstick as use cases. The workshop will provide an example based on 5G NFV test research.

Monday, September 23 // 08:45 – 10:15 // Okapi 2
You are warmly invited to join us in this workshop on Multi-Access Edge Computing. With the ongoing development of services such as 5G and industrial IoT coupled with CSPs digital transformation ambitions, application innovation in vertical industries is growing rapidly. Edge computing, especially MEC, is a key requirement to the development and innovation of industry digitalization. This tutorial will first walk through the requirements of carriers’ Edge Computing and update you with the latest progress from a carriers’ perspective. Next we will introduce the current status and working plan of MEC related standards within ETSI MEC and 3GPP. Finally this tutorial will cover what MEC deployments actually look like and how MEC can support the delivery of 5G differentiated services. Attendees should leave this workshop with a deeper understanding of the requirements that Carriers such as China Mobile have for Edge Computing, along with the knowledge of the progress of the corresponding MEC Standards and finally a view of how MEC deployments based on these standards can be achieved.
