Plan to come early on Wednesday and participate in a tutorial! Tutorials on Wednesday, April 3 are complimentary to Open Networking Summit attendees and can be added to an existing ONS registration here.
An Open Hybrid Cloud Network Architecture Tutorial
Sponsored by Alibaba
Wednesday, April 3 // 8:30 am – 10:00 am // Room LL21B
With the trend of application cloud migration, there’s an increasing need for on-premise IDCs, branches, and endpoints to connect to the cloud. This presentation will discuss Alibaba Cloud’s approach to building a secure, open, high-quality enterprise network solution. Based on SD-WAN technology and edge nodes, the solution ensures lower latency and higher network QoS. This session will share our open SD-WAN approach by utilizing widely used open source software platform to offer comprehensive capabilities including CPE, access gateway and secure encryption at scale.

Converged Multi-Access Edge and Next-Gen SDN
Sponsored by Open Networking Foundation
Wednesday, April 3 // 9:00 am – 12:00 pm // Room 230B
ONF is enabling dramatic transformation of operator networks by leveraging open source and community-based development led by operators. ONFs integrated portfolio spans next-generation SDN infrastructure up through service platforms for unified mobile and broadband subscriber edge services. Participants will learn from ONF & operator subject matter experts as we explore all aspects of the ONFs broad spectrum of work. Vendors benefit by gaining a keen understanding of operator intentions, learning from the ultimate end users about what’s needed and where networks are headed. Expect to come away with a clear understanding of ONF’s unique operator-led portfolio of projects, how these interrelate with the broader ecosystem of open source (from OCP, TIP and the Linux Foundation), how operators are leveraging this work and how you can get more involved.

Driving Telco Performance with the Cloud Native Network Function (CNF) Testbed Tutorial, sponsored by Cloud Native Computing Foundation
Driving Telco Performance with the Cloud Native Network Function (CNF) Testbed Tutorial
Sponsored by Cloud Native Computing Foundation
Wednesday, April 3 // 10:30 am – 12:00 pm // LL21B
As the telecom industry’s confidence in Kubernetes grows, Cloud native Network Functions (CNFs) are emerging as the network architecture of the future, providing notable performance improvements thanks to a lower virtualization overhead. This in-depth tutorial will walk through the new Cloud native Network Function (CNF) Testbed, which provides telecom-focused vendors and operators with a consistent and reliable method to test network functions from ONAP or an organization’s own networking code as VNFs and CNFs. Attendees will walk away with an understanding of how the testbed will enable telcos to compare the performance and resiliency between running on Kubernetes and OpenStack using the same underlying hardware.
