How does the Telco Industry Benefit from the CNTT/OPNFV Outcomes?

  • Presented by Sukhdev Kapur from Juniper Networks, Walter Kozlowski from Telstra Corporation Australia, Karine Sevilla from Orange, Tomas Fredberg from Ericsson.
  • What can you expect to learn?
    • This presentation delves into the real-world technology challenges, opportunities and business needs we expect cloud infrastructure implementers to encounter in conforming to the CNTT Reference Architectures. This will cause CNTT Cloud Infrastructure solutions to dynamically evolve and the CNTT Reference Model needs to adapt to this fast-paced evolution. The direction of the evolution is dictated by the adoption of the Cloud Native Network Functions that require support from a Container as a Service virtualization layer (CaaS) and the need for the co-existence of several virtualisation technologies requiring separate and yet co-ordinated management.
    • The growing number of real-life deployments, especially in areas like 5G, IoT and Edge,  multiplies number of variations in mostly proprietary solutions. Therefore, there is a strong community interest in the normalization of such deployments using directions from a stable and yet flexible CNTT Reference Model.

Minimum Viable Core for 4G and 5G Dual Connectivity

  • Presented by Prakash Ramchandran from Dell, Jonathan Bryce from OpenStack Foundation, Boris Renski from FreedomFi.
  • What can you expect to learn?
    • All Service Providers, Chip manufacturers, System, Service & Network Vendors have been facing declining ARPU, funds shortage due to Covid-19 & eager to collaborate to cut costs. With 3GPP (Rel 15/16) 5G NR specs approved by ITU IMT-2020, what needs is a reference implementation of 5GC (core) to migrate using New Radio NR through NSA and SA architectures. The Panel will provide you answers to insights they have gained through the efforts in deploying towards a future plug fest to test both Hardware and Software functionalities to deploy and maintain an upstream version of packages and sources with BSD 3.0 license to contribute and use the Source codes.
