OPNFV 101 - Ildiko Vancsa, Ericsson
OPNFV is a very young community and very unique at the same time. It consists of several Telecom vendors and service providers along with IT companies to work on a platform that is suitable for NFVs and the puzzle is built from large open source projects as pieces. Many of us is not completely new to open source, but most of us is still learning how it works. OPNFV is a good example of how the mindset is changing to adapt to a new way of working. The road is full of turns, but we are learning our lessons and moving forward. The presentation will guide you through the changes in the projects’ structure, life cycle and way of working. You will get an overview about our current project structure in OPNFV including co-operation, our processes including tools and best practices and areas that need further improvements.

DPDK, User Space Data Path, Open vSwitch and OPNFV - Thomas Herbert Red Hat SDN Group
In this presentation, Mr. Herbert discusses the layered architecture of Open vSwitch. Tom will discuss the OVSDB and Open Flow control protocol and the specific mechanism and internal API's with which OVS's layered architecture provides independence of the data plane from the control plane. Specifically, he discusses how user space accelerated software data paths can provide enhanced performance over the Linux kernel in some circumstances at wire data rates. The talk covers DPDK as an example of a user space data plane as well as the advantages and disadvantages of DPDK with respect to the LInux Kernel data plane in terms of configuration, flexibility, provisioning and network interfaces. Finally, he provides a discussion about the implications of utilizing OVS with DPDK or another accelerated software data plane to OPNFV higher level networking functions.

OpenFastPath –an open source accelerated IP fast path - Tapio Tallgren, Nokia
The exponential growth in data traffic puts ever-increasing demands on the packetprocessing elements in the network, resulting in a need for highperformance IP packet handling. This drives the emergence of a newgeneration of hardware accelerated platforms as well as an emergenceof user space applications and libraries. Hardwareabstraction layers like OpenDataPlane (ODP) and Data PlaneDevelopment Kit (DPDK) provides a hardware abstraction layer and acommon API for applications and libraries. However, they do notinclude commonly required functionality such as IP forwarding orIPsec. To solve this an additional piece of technology is needed - anopen IP stack that provides needed protocols and features for highperformance environments. This framework will enable networkapplication developers to meet both performance and platform targetscreating a basis for scalable high-performance network functions. This presentation will introduce an open source project providingthat missing piece. OpenFastPath (OFP) is the industry’s firsttruly hardware agnostic open source user space IP fast path solution.Backed by major industry players ARM, Nokia and Enea, OFP is aimingat providing industry leading scalability, performance and portability.

Diary of an Infra Guy - Fatih Degirmenci, Ericsson
OPNFV is focusing on accelerating the evolution of NFV products and services through creating an integrated platform that consists of components like OpenStack, OpenDaylight and so forth. In order to build a system that fulfills the requirements of VNFs, it also collaborates with the underlying upstream projects to fill the gaps.
Apart from addressing the telecom needs, the activities cover the end-to-end flow of integrating, deploying and verifying the platform, which gives the diverse and complex nature of the project.
You will get an inside view about the challenges we were facing from the early days to the Arno release and beyond and also outlines our lessons learnt and future plans. We will show how the different deployment tools, test frameworks and lab infrastructures became the parts of one big picture along with a demo of the Continuous Integration Machinery.

Keep Calm And Use Parser - Howard Huang, Huawei
Parser is an integration project in OPNFV and one of the candidate projects of OPNFV B Release. ETSI NFV offers a rich set of descriptors and deployment templates on different levels, thus it is vital for OPNFV as a platform to provide the capability of utilizing different templates for developers to work on. At its core, Parser provides such translation tooling that developers won't care too much about writing a "correct" script. They could write their templates/scripts in TOSCA or YANG or whatever they desire, and Parser would enable OPNFV to natively support all these types of scripts by translate them to the one that the main platform would use.

In this presentation the core team member of the Parser project, Howard Huang, Victor Hu, Vinayak Ram and Julien Zhang will share with you what and how we do in Parser project, and what nice features you would expect in the coming releases.

Art of Assembling the OPNFV - Frank Brockners, Cisco
OPNFV set out to perform systems integration as an open community effort. Systems integration for NFV not only translates to a continuous composition and test effort, but also commonly requires custom feature extensions and additions. While system integration means “choosing”, open source projects typically “create choice” – where the created merit determines success or failure in the market.
This presentation explores how OPNFV is composed out of many components. We’ll take a look at the “engine room” of OPNFV and see how the OPNFV community combines “choosing” and “choice”. By reviewing the current status, we’ll address how the platform composition was done for the 1st release, how things evolve towards the 2nd release, as well as how users can not only use OPNFV but also impact and influence OPNFV’s direction moving forward. And yes, we’ll share some of the fun, joy, and pitfalls.

Community Anti-Patterns - Dave Neary, Red Hat
In the OPNFV project, we are building on a large body of existing work, and have the opportunity to take advantage of some best practices which have arisen through trial and error in 40 years of free and open source software development. And anywhere we find best practices, we find projects who have diligently avoided them and seem to do things the Wrong Way.

The Cookie Licker, the Bikeshed, Broken Window Syndrome, the Big Reveal, the Alpha Male - this is an irreverent look at some of the worst anti-patterns that have arisen on open source community projects, and (hopefully) some actionable ideas on how to address or avoid them in OPNFV.

Doctor Project - Ryota Mibu, NEC; Gerald Kunzmann, DOCOMO; Carlos Goncalves, NEC
Doctor is an OPNFV project focusing on fault management and maintenance of Network Services on top of a virtualized infrastructure. Failure awareness is a key to achieve high reliability. Adopting virtualization technologies adds a new layer in the infrastructure separating applications from the underlying hardware. Thus, network services as an application may lose promptness and accuracy of the failure awareness. In Doctor, we started from identifying requirements for fault management, aligned the specifications between OSS and SDO, and finally got our proposed features implemented in the upstream OSS.
In this talk, we'll present an overview of the Doctor project including the technical requirements for NFV in a fault management and maintenance context, a demo of an integrated Doctor framework, and lessons learned on how we successfully got our features implemented in the upstream OSS.

Accelerate Service Function Chaining Vertical Solution with DPDK - Danny Zhou, Intel
Service Function Chaining (SFC) is one of top 5 NFV use case. Supporting SFC in provider and enterprise networks requires performance assurance. Specifically, the Classifier and the Service Function Forwarder which are typically implemented in software such as virtual switches need to match line rate requirement. DPDK (Data Plane Development Kit) is an open source project comprising a set of libraries and drivers for fast packet processing. In this presentation, we will discuss our experiences accelerating SFC with DPDK. In addition, Telco and Datacenter carriers demands dynamic SFC that requires new SFC wire protocols (e.g. VxLAN-GPE and NSH) support in both data and control planes. We intend to share our experiences and future works of a high performance, NSH-aware SFC vertical solution with open-source ingredients: Openstack, Opendaylight, OpenvSwitch with DPDK acceleration.

Sponsor Session - Open For NFV Business- Glenn Seiler, Wind River
OPNFV is driving a lot of momentum and interest around Open Source and NFV.  But to be competitive in today’s market, you cannot afford to waste time on lengthy integration projects – you need to be in the market now with a high performance, highly available carrier grade NFV solution. In addition, the solutions for today also need to be future-proofed; i.e. based on open source and the work being done by OPNFV, ETSI and OpenStack. Thus, a successful open NFV strategy is based on adherence to the critical standards programs currently underway, while adding just the right amount of IP to fill critical gaps and provide market differentiation.

One approach is to use open source reference platforms to get started with proof of concepts for NFV, but once in deployment you  need a proven, reliable, and commercially supported carrier grade platform. Ensuring that an NFVI platform is Carrier Grade is a complex business that includes API support for VNFs, OpenStack plug-ins for Carrier Grade features, KVM enhancements for real-time and more.

In this session, learn how the combination of Open Source technologies, ETSI standards, high performance, and plug-ins that guarantee Six 9’s availability comprise a solution that is ready-for-NFV today. Wind River will showcase its Titanium Server NFVI platform focusing on how it is built from OPNFV and ETSI reference platforms.

CDN Use Case Revisited - Marc Fiuczynski, Akamai
The explosion of OTT style on-demand and live video traffic experienced by network operators implicitly motivated the ETSI NFV CDN Use Case. The dynamic placement of CDN caches on virtual machines at strategic network locations offers a viable approach to managing this explosion. A CDN is a major, distributed traffic data source, rather than a bump in the wire, that depending on workload also requires terabytes of high performance I/O storage. As such it is different from the more conventional network functions explored in the context of NFV. In this presentation, Marc Fiuczynski revisits the CDN Use Case by outlining both technical and deployment challenges that should be addressed by the NFV and SDN community at large to arrive at the desired efficacy network operators are seeking by deploying CDNs within their networks.

From IaaS to MANO Service Oriented VIM NBI - Tianran Zhou, Huawei and Prakash Ramchandran, Futurewei
While OpenStack is a competitive candidate for VIM, existing IaaS service oriented NBI leaves a lot of detailed work for the upper layer applications (e.g. orchestrator).

MOVIE project in OPNFV is to provide a more abstract VIM NBI alternative by extending the general cloud platform to simplify the orchestrator and VNF manager, and make it easy for resource access, connection generation, flow identification, policy operation, etc. This higher level abstraction gives the upper layer applications another option in addition to the combination of openstack existing interfaces and extentions developed by other OPNFV projects.Service Chaining is one of the most important use cases in OPNFV. We will also take this as an example to show how the intent driven interface can simplify the deployment and reduce the OPEX.

In networks built from proprietary and specialized equipment and software, can we really achieve the touted benefits of applying open source? One year has passed since the experiment called OPNFV was launched as act of faith by a brave few who wanted to accelerate true interoperability, by developing an open and flexible development reference platform to address NFV. In this year we have wrestled with many issues on both the development and business front, as we balance CSP expectations vs CSP realities, cooperation vs differentiation, and try to harness the chaotic open source development model to deliver useful software in a timely manner.

With a focus on carrier-grade NFV products and services, it is easy to view the work of OPNFV solely through the lens of traditional telecom networking gear and vendors. That would be a mistake.  Executing on the promise of NFV requires collaboration with – and an understanding of – a broad swath of players across the IT and open source communities; efforts to build scalable NFVI, VIM and MANO solutions will fail unless CSPs do so.  Against this backdrop, it’s only fair to call out open source SDN, cloud management and analytics as strategic to OPNFV efforts, making it critical to hear how leading players in these fields see themselves supporting NFV going forward.

Running VNFs in Docker Containers with Auto-Scale & Auto-Heal Out of the Box - Uri Cohen, GigaSpaces
Most VNF use cases are designed and presented around VMs, but what about Docker containers? Many VNFs can run as applications in user space, as though run in Docker containers. This provides resource reduction, cost reduction, easier manageability, along with the ability to place or co-locate VNFs of the same tenant on one or several VM instances. This presentation will bring a real world example of an IMS system, based on the open source Clearwater from MetaSwitch, which will demonstrate a way to deploy, monitor, auto-heal and auto-scale Clearwater on Docker containers.

VNFs at the Edge using Docker Containers - Michael Kloberdans, CableLabs
While little discussed, there is a solid case in placing some VNFs at the edge of the network, but this notion implies a distributed model that VNFs were not originally created to address. One of the problems in placing VNFs at the network edge is that the edge equipment may be very cost sensitive and in many cases, consumer grade.

These consumer-grade devices cannot support a virtual container such as a KVM because of the huge memory requirements of an additional OS. A Docker container has been proposed and implemented with great success.

Open Management Interfaces for NFV - Anees Shaikh, Google
By separating network functions into software components running on virtualized infrastructure, NFV enables network operators to improve their agility and lower costs. However, the operational benefits offered by NFV architectures are still ultimately limited by the manageability of the infrastructure and network services that are deployed. In this talk we describe OpenConfig, an industry collaboration led by network operators, to simplify the management of network services and infrastructure by developing common APIs for the management plane. The OpenConfig working group started with an initial focus of defining vendor-neutral data models for configuration and telemetry based on real operational use cases. As these models are implemented by infrastructure providers, the costs and delays of introducing new platforms and services into the network will decrease significantly.

Achieving Telco Grade NFV: Benchmarking Real World Workloads - Clive D'Souza, Intel
While the construct of Network Functions Virtualization and Software Defined Networking has graduated from a conceptual to a viable technology phase, real world deployments are still proving to be a challenge. Telecom Equipment Manufacture’s (TEM’s) have to find a reliable, deterministic manner to benchmark their wares to specific virtual network functions. Benchmarks which are interoperable, repeatable, based on open standards supporting plug & play modular architectures, to accommodate multi-vendor VNF support will be needed.
Intel has a deep experience in stemming from the successful adoption of virtualization in the data centers; Learnings from the virtualization of the data center journey are directly applicable to standardizing and accelerating the benchmarking for NFV, all with the aim to vastly accelerate the adoption curve of virtualization in networking.

OpenStack & OVS: From Love-Hate Relationship to Match Made in Heaven - Chloe Ma, Mellanox and Erez Cohen, Mellanox
Many OPNFV developers building Openstack clouds at scale have a “love-hate” relationship with OVS. They love the flexibility and elasticity offered by a distributed virtual switch operating within each server, but hate the reality of first-gen OVS implementations well-known to be a bottleneck for cloud network performance and scalability. As performance-sensitive VNFs keep pushing for higher data forwarding performance across the NFV network infrastructure, it becomes critical to improve OVS performance without compromising flexibility, network programmability, and cost.

In this session, Mellanox will present a novel way to offload the entire OVS dataplane onto the embedded switch in the server NIC. This approach can not only boost server I/O performance to near line-rate, be it 10G, 40G, or 100G, but also doing so at a fraction of the CPU load needed by existing OVS implementation.

From its inception, ONF has reached out to many traditional SDOs, and is now working with the open source community as well. In this presentation, we will share a brief rationale for Carrier Grade SDN, and highlight key initiatives underway, propelled by some of the world’s largest operators.

Software Fastpath Quality Metrics & DPDK Keep-Alive - Maryam Tahhan, Intel
In an age of Telecommunications Revolution, where evolving technology is completely changing the way we work, communicate, and even the way we live; data growth is exploding across the network. Although more users and devices are connected to the network than ever before, there is still an expectation that services are available whenever and wherever they are needed; and that those services meet a level of quality that is acceptable to the end user. Software Fastpath-service Quality Metrics (SFQM) is an OPNFV project that is focused on collecting and monitoring the Telco performance and traffic indicators of DPDK packet processing paths in the NFVI. This talk looks at the work undertaken by SFQM to expose DPDK performance metrics to OpenStack and the proposed feature that facilitates support for failover of DPDK enabled cores, which is referred to as DPDK Keep alive.

Test Results Management - Jose Lausuch, Ericsson; Morgan Richomme, Orange
Testing is a key challenge for OPNFV. Many projects are dealing with test and generating results on different testbeds relying on different hardware. All these differences lead to a need of a management framework. The goal is to collect, display, analyze and compare heterogeneous sources and provide ultimately a unified user experience.

This presentation will detail this architecture within OPNFV continuous integration environment. An early version of the test dashboard will be shared with the community.
