MEF LSO Seminar: Building Third Network Services with CE 2.0, LSO, SDN & NFV - Pascal Menezes, MEF; Rami Yaron, Telco Systems; and Shahar Steiff, PCCW Global

The MEF is the driving force enabling Third Network services for the digital economy and the hyper-connected world, providing an on-demand, orchestrated, assured, and secured experience with user-directed control over network resources and cloud connectivity. Optimized for real-time traffic and integration of value-added network functions-as-a-service, Third Network services are delivered over more automated, virtualized, and interconnected networks powered by CE 2.0, LSO, SDN, and NFV.  The MEF has established a technical framework that includes architecture, information models, services, operational processes, LSO, open source implementations, and certification programs. MEF work is conducted internally and under the guidance of the MEF UNITE program in cooperation with global standards organizations and open source projects.

Through a series of presentations, this seminar will demonstrate that LSO is delivering on its promise to accelerate the implementation of agile and assured Carrier Ethernet services and to improve the operational efficiency of Service Providers. This presentation introduces MEF's new Open LSO and Open CS initiatives and discusses collaboration with ON.Lab and other Open Source projects.

Welcome - Rami Yaron, Telco Systems
10:00am-10:05am

Multi-Operator Service Delivery: From Months to Minutes... - Pascal Menezes, MEF
10:05am-10:45am
The MEF is focused on enabling dynamic network services for the digital economy and the hyper-connected world, providing businesses an on-demand, cloud-connected, secure, and assured experience.

This presentation will explain how LSO is the critical enabler of automated and virtualized networks built with SDN and NFV. Currently, Service Providers need LSO capabilities and supporting APIs to overcome the OSS and BSS obstacles that prevent them from realizing the full benefits of emerging SDN and NFV technologies.  LSO encompasses all network domains that require coordinated inter-operator end-to-end management and control to deliver on-demand cloud connectivity services and to assure their overall quality and security as expressed in the Service Provider SLA.

The LSO Reference Architecture and Framework - Rami Yaron, Telco Systems
10:45am-11:25am
The LSO Reference Architecture and Framework defines the management and control layered reference architecture and the framework that characterizes the domains and management entities required to enable cooperative LSO capabilities for connectivity services. The framework also provides high level use cases describing orchestrated connectivity service behavior as well as interactions among management and control entities. The management and control reference points that characterize interactions between LSO management ecosystem components are identified in the framework.

11:25am-11:45am

The Real Story Behind Multi-Operator Automation - Shahar Steiff, PCCW
11:45am-12:35pm
As Service Providers accelerate the deployment of services, automation that spans multiple Operator domains becomes mandatory to achieve scalability that includes off-net locations.  This automation depends on standardization of Information Models, Operational Threads and Interface Profiles based on real-world use cases and service provider implementation strategies. This presentation by a leading MEF service provider member explains how MEF builds these use cases - including serviceability, ordering, performance reporting, resource provisioning and many others -  based on service provider expertise and integrates them using the latest modeling approaches to define the processes and APIs that Service Providers and Operators can use to interconnect in a fully automated fashion.

OpenDaylight Mini-Summit: South-bound Rendering Interface for Programmable Data Plane - Moderator: Anu Mercian, HPE; Panelists: Prem Jonnalagadda, Barefoot Networks; Michael Zayats, HPE; Haoyu Song, Huawei; and Jan Medved, Cisco

ODL ecosystem has evolved extensively with multiple API for various applications and features which strengthens the usability of SDN in network deployment. The south-bound rendering modules are focused on OpenFlow, which has become the de facto standard to control the network. OpenFlow requires pre-defined protocols and does not provide flexibility to manage large number of new protocols. There have been new efforts such as fd.io, OpenSwitch, P4, and POF which are focused on providing a programmable data plane to render scalable control plane programmability. In this panel, we discuss high-performance packet-processing, hardware switch-agnosticism, programmable packet processors, protocol-independence, the need for them and the problems they solve using SDN.

Come join us in this existing panel representing open source efforts for advanced south-bound rendering and packet processing. Questions can be addressed to the panel in advance by sending them to anu.mercian@hpe.com

OpenDaylight Mini-Summit: Service Assurance & Analytics, A Catalyst for NFV & SDN Transformation - Balaji Ethirajulu, Ericsson
In the legacy world, service assurance played a role in managing the network, identifying root cause of a problem, providing performance reports and also taking some proactive action. But, the role of service assurance will be different for NFV, SDN and hybrid networks (combination of legacy & virtual). More than ever, service assurance will play a key role or act as a catalyst for the NFV and SDN transformation. Open source projects such as OpenDaylight and OpenStack need to enhance their performance and assurance information that takes into account the network functions that will run on top of NFVI.

In this presentation, Balaji Ethirajulu will discuss how network analytics will play a key role in the area of service assurance by providing proactive and predictive actionable intelligence about the network and the impact of open source projects. He will also discuss how the service assurance can help to close the loop and enable the automation, and network agility.

Keynote: All Together Now: Integrating Networking Open Source Projects - Jonathan Bryce, OpenStack; Neela Jacques, OpenDaylight; Heather Kirksey, OPNFV; Guru Parulkar, ONOS; and Jim Zemlin, The Linux Foundation (Moderator)
The networking industry has seen a growing number of open source projects emerge over the past few years -- OpenStack, OpenDaylight, ONOS, OPNFV, among others -- to apply open source software development against the thorniest challenges in traditional networking technology stacks. Each project has specific areas of focus, but over time, are becoming more deeply integrated as they cross new industry boundaries. And as more users like AT&T, Fujitsu and Huawei require use cases that cross projects, integration between them becomes more critical. Join us to learn from leaders of each project as they discuss key learnings from the past year on how and where they collaborate, integrate, and compete across the industry.

The Road to Open Network Management - Rob Shakir, Jive Communications; Anees Shaikh & Josh George - Google
The networking industry continues to evolve toward open, programmable data planes and platforms, coupled with open source software solutions for controlling and automating the network. Network operations and management still remains relegated to proprietary interfaces, CLI “programming”, and legacy protocols that suffer from poor scaling and limited extensibility.

We introduced OpenConfig a year ago at ONS as an industry-wide user-led initiative to tackle these operational and management challenges by defining APIs for configuration and monitoring. Momentum behind OpenConfig continues to grow, as major network vendors bring solutions to the market that provide native support for common APIs and streaming telemetry based on OpenConfig. In this talk we describe the progress to date and demonstrate how vendor-neutral, model-driven network operation is becoming a reality.

Mitigating Security Risk in Practical vCPE Solutions - Ulrich Kohn, ADVA Optical Networking
NFV promises significant simplification and increased efficiencies, and vCPE is one of the most prominent use cases. Virtualizing customer premises equipment means detaching functions from hardware and eventually from their present location. This impacts the risk profile and introduces additional threats due to the software-driven and open architecture of NFV.
In this presentation, Ulrich Kohn analyzes the vCPE use case with a special focus on the virtualization layer and the virtual infrastructure manager (VIM). He describes attack vectors and explains technical controls provided with OpenStack to counter the emerging risk. A combination of encryption, authentication and traffic isolation provides efficient security controls. The presentation concludes with a customer premises solution which combines performance and security requirements in a highly effective way.

Certificate-based Authentication in SDN Environment - Mohamed ElSerngawy
In the SDN Network environment, certificate-based authentication is mandatory for the SDN controller to be able to authorize and authenticate the network elements. However the certificate based authentication models we have today required changes and challenges to be adapted to the SDN environments.
I will present the current problem in the certificate based authentication models with SDN environment and the possible solution to overcome those problems:

-SelfSign certificate: key management and MITM attacks.

-Certificate Authority (local and public): generate and update certificate process during production environment. Compromised CA certificate will compromise all network elements that use CA Certificate.

-Distinguish between the secure channels over different network protocols (OpenFlow, Netconf, SNMP, .etc)

-The possible solutions from the academic and industry research

Fix VxLAN issue in SFC integration by using Eth+NSH and VxLAN-gpe+NSH Hybrid Mode - Yi Yang
NSH (https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-sfc-nsh/) is a standard IETF is drafting, it is especially introduced to address SFC (Service Function Chaining) in SDN/NFV, VxLAN-gpe is a proposed encapsulation protocol, but in data center, SFF (Service Function Forwarder) and Classifier are on the same ovs node, VxLAN-gpe can’t handle such cases, https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-sfc-nsh/ also suggested another encapsulation type Eth+NSH+overload, which can reduce unnecessary encapsulation & decapsulation and significantly improve performance. My presentation will show all the details about how NSH and SFC work together in data center and demo it by using Eth+NSH and VxLAN-gpe+NSH hybrid mode, this demo will use the almost same network topology setup as OVSDB+SFC+Openstack+tacker integration used except VM isn’t be started by Openstack and it is a docker container, this demo also shows typical Openflow multi-writer issue and indicates why we need a solution to Openflow mulit-writer issue.

NFV/SDN Information and Data Models in Standards and Open Source - Bryan Sullivan, AT&T
Information / Data Models will play a key role in establishing a model-driven NFV service environment. Since realization of NFV-enabling platforms is substantially driven by Open Source communities today, SDOs and Open Source communities should seek alignment on the models that are or will be implemented in Open Source. This effort requires establishing a baseline for the current state of alignment, processes and tools for assessing models, and collaborative engagement of SDOs and Open Source to promote alignment. This talk will summarize the current state of standardized models, as well as the current defacto models derived from Open Source. A demonstration will be provided for the tools and processes used in this effort. The talk will finish with a draft summary of the findings so far on key gaps between standardized and Open Source models, and plans to address them.

Table Type Patterns (TTP) – the key to ASIC agnostic SDN / OpenFlow - Sudhir Modali, PLM
How to achieve an open networking framework has been discussed by the Open Networking community for several years. Progress has been made on many fronts to have each layer of the stack be independent (bare metal switch, NOS, controller, application). TTP has been touted as a means to drive abstraction at of ASIC functionality from the application developers. This vision requires ASIC vendors to work with NOS vendors so that different packet handling pipeline schemes in the ASIC can be leveraged and to date, only Broadcom ASICs have been discussed thus far.

ONOS as a Distributed Systems Platform - Madan Jampani, ON.Lab
Modern software systems employ complex distributed systems protocols for providing fault-tolerance, scalability and logical consistency. However, building such systems while preserving performance and the ease of programmability is a tough challenge. It requires architecting a set of core distributed systems building blocks and exposing them via simple and easy to consume abstractions. Done right, these core building blocks can form the basis for a generic distributed systems platform on top of which a host of higher level frameworks such as network controllers and resource schedulers can be built. In this talk I will discuss how the core architecture of ONOS (Open Network Operating System) provides reusable abstractions for constructing other scalable and highly available distributed systems.

Virtualization Environments for SDN/NFV - Bob Lantz, Open Networking Laboratory
Virtualization and isolation has become a key part of SDN management, control, and data plane (aka NFV) solutions. This talk will focus on the spectrum of options from processes to virtual machines that provide virtual environments for testing and development of SDN controller platforms, as well as deployment environments for network functions. It will outline the features of hypervisors and kernels that are used to provide different types of isolation and virtualization, including memory, network, and file system isolation, and the overhead associated with each. It will also examine how (and why) different container platforms (e.g. Mininet, Docker, LXC) use different combinations of virtualization features to create virtual environments.

ODL based SD-WAN Solution for Operators - Ajay Sahai, HP
The adoption of mobile & cloud tech is driving changes to the traditional hub and spoke network architecture. This is causing ripples in the telco biz managed connectivity services marketplace.With growing usage of SaaS, IaaS offerings today not all enterprise traffic stays on a managed WAN end to end. Some enterprising new entrants are promoting solutions that effectively provide an OTT solution with a BYOW (Bring Your WAN) paradigm. However the importance of reliability, which was the telco's value proposition has not decreased and adding reliability by bringing in more providers is not always practical. In this new enviroment Telco providers need to refresh their offerings – simplify addition/changes/deletions of sites, enable visibility and control of traffic. This talk will describe and demonstrate an ODL based solution that enable SD-WAN for operators.

Topics in Intent-based Networking- David Lenrow, Huawei
Intent based networking changes the networking paradigm by describing what the network end-points need , rather than describing how to setup the network. In this model, and SDN controller becomes the intelligence that translates what is needed into specific protocols, interfaces, vendor-specific features, etc. This approach allows the description to be portable across multiple infrastructure implementations and makes "programming the network" available to millions of non-experts who need not be network engineers or software developers. In this panel, people building and deploying intent-based networks will talk about why they are doing so and what are the current challenges.

The Need for Complex Analytics from Forwarding Pipelines - Nic Viljoen, Netronome; Tom Tofigh & Bryan Sullivan, AT&T
Given that the software paradigm leads to faster innovation, we have learned that emerging forwarding pipelines such as switches, Routers, and compute and storage elements are expected to be programmable and have the ability to support complex analytic measurements. To these switches to achieve both high performance packet processing and complex measurement, the pipelines needs to be programmable as suggested by P4. This talk will make an attempt to conceptualize the complexity of current overlay analytics networks and how SDN and P4 approach can be used to program the pipelines for adaptive advanced measurement.
In addition we will show how SDN based platform such as ONOS can be instrumental to achieve programmable pipelines that are friendly to complex measurements for small and large flows. This talk will be complementary to Analytic cord.

Exploration of Large Scale Virtual Networks - David Wilder, IBM
IBM recently showcased a system running 10,000 docker containers on a single IBM Power system. To network all those containers we need to create a virtual network that supports thousands of endpoints. How will virtual networks of this scale perform? How will they break?

We built virtual networks of varying scale and tested them as we would have tested physical networks, by measuring sustained throughput and latency. Physical networks are limited by I/O bandwidth. Container to container traffic within a host is bounded by available CPU resource. Available network bandwidth becomes a function of available CPU cycles, CPU cycles that must be shared with applications. This is a key factor when sizing large scale docker systems.

In this presentation I will describe how we performed this analysts, the problems we encountered and the approaches used to solve them.

Interactive Programming for Dynamic Network Probe: A Use Case for POF Data Plane - Haoyu Song, Huawei Technologies
Network operators require better network observability in order to use the data acquired to better support their business needs such as improving QoE, customer care, and security. The network data plane needs to be interactively programmable to support such applications in real time and on demand. This is a further stretch of the open programmable data plane. We developed the protocol oblivious forwarding technology, protocol, and prototype to show how this is achieved in an efficient way. POF allow users to dynamically install probes at any places in the data plane and run customized actions to monitor the data plane states and events. We show our system could be the foundation of a networking big data analytics platform.

A Practitioner’s Guide to Open Source Software - Usage, Contribution, Leadership - Phil Robb, Linux Foundation
Open source software has taken the Networking and Service Provider industries by storm. As a result, many individuals and organizations have had their working environments severely disrupted. Those who used to write software strictly as a part of a corporate product team must now deal with many “external developers” that are part of an open source community. Those who used to produce vendor RFPs to procure products now find themselves needing to deal with the cacophony of voices in various open source projects to piece together a coherent technology strategy.

In this talk we’ll explain the best practices for dealing with this new world order from how to evaluate open source projects to engaging with them, and how to influence them.

Container-based Dynamic Service Chain using Distributed SDN Pipeline Injection (Openstack, Dragonflow, Kuryr) - Eshed Gal-Or, Huawei
With NFV becoming a reality, OpenStack Cloud deployments grow in number and size, giving birth to issues of scale, performance and service flexibility.
Many struggle to minimize the effects of the virtual overlay on the physical network, while also looking to provide network services that are both efficient and flexible.
In this session, I will review two new Open Source projects based on Linux, Containers and OpenVirtualSwitch, that may hold the answer:
Dragonflow – a lean distributed SDN controller that fully implements OpenStack Neutron and provides several network services (e.g. DHCP, L2, L3)
Kuryr – a project that enables Containers networking to be managed in OpenStack Neutron.
Join this session to see how these projects can be used together to bring Service Injection into an OpenStack-based cloud, enabling a range of new applications in NFV and IT Cloud.

Securing SDN Controllers – Attack Surfaces and Mitigation Strategies - Rafat Jahan & Vedyas Krishnamoorthy, Tata Consultancy Services
SDN controller is identified as the single most important point of failure that can affect the entire network, hence securing the controller from external sources of attack is of importance. The attack could be from the application, network or the peer controllers. The rationale behind a unified controller security plugin is to devise a security information repository for the applications and is developed for SDN controllers as an infrastructure that provides a single pane of visibility related to controller security. The security information could be for collating source of different attacks reported in SB plugins/suspected controller intrusions or information about trusted controllers in the network. It also opens the possibility of mitigating persistent attack(s)on the controller by blocking(quarantining)the offending switches/ports or locking them down temporarily/permanently.

Performance Considerations When Deploying Open Source NFV Infrastructure - Eric Carmès, 6WIND
Performance bottlenecks persist in VMs within NFV use cases and new Web 2.0 applications slow down the adoption of open source-based virtual applications in OpenStack deployments, questioning the wisdom of adding under-utilized multi- 10GE and 40GE interfaces on multi-core platforms. By leveraging data plane acceleration within the OpenStack hypervisor, these bottlenecks are resolved and provide line rate throughput across multiple 10G, 25G, 40G, 50G and 100G interfaces to meet all virtual application bandwidth requirements, which can help accelerate the adoption of open source networking.

This session addresses the means to integrate and automate OpenStack hypervisor acceleration to eliminate performance bottlenecks that challenge the adoption of NFV, with the end result goal to scale data centers beyond 10G leveraging open source NFV infrastructure.

Apply Intent for Service Level Network Programming - Tianran Zhou and Helen Chen, Huawei
While "intent" has been a buzz word during last few years, this presentation will discuss the practice of intent engine based on the insights gained in the NEMO project in OpenDaylight. NEMO abstracts a set of intent based language primitives for the declarative expression to simplify the service level network programming, and introduces automation for service deployment. It inspires the network application innovation by easily composing various network services.
This session will introduce the design on intent modelling, reusable template for service composition, and how the NEMO intent engine is implemented for the policy conflict resolution and network resource optimization. The progress of NEMO project in OpenDaylight will also be reported with different use case scenarios, one of which is jointly developed in the scope of the EU-FP7 NetIDE project.

Implementation of an SSL Proxy in a SDN to Monitor Internet Users Aboard A Navy Ship - Patrick Dyroff, Hanover High
Cyber Security is essential aboard US Naval ships. With a variety of people taking part in the ship’s network, browsing the web or otherwise, measures must be taken to ensure oversight of each user. The problem is that with the conventional network used today, a network administrator or information technology professional cannot know how many devices are aboard the ship and connected, much less their activity on the network. The solution I used was the implementation of a SSL Proxy in a new network paradigm known as Software Defined Networking (SDN). An SDN simplifies routers, switches and other network devices by adding a centralized controller which allows full visibility of every device on the network, dynamic programmability of traffic flows and full control.

Plenary Session: SDN and NFV – Stepping Stones to the Telco Cloud | Prodip Sen, HPE
When NFV was initiated as a major industry initiative a few years ago, initial activities largely ignored SDN - except as a use case of another virtual function. Recently there has been a growing realization that using the SDN approach is essential to reaping all the benefits of the NFV. Also there has been progress in using open source software in NFV, especially with the use of OpenStack in various commercial offerings (e.g. from HPE), and the launch of OPNFV as an open source project focused on NFV, which uses both OpenStack and ODL and other open source software. For most of the above SDN is viewed as a support technology for NFV. This talk goes beyond that and discusses a couple of  use cases we have implemented for Communication Service Providers (CSPs) in the mobile network, where both SDN and NFV are required and each provide distinctive value. It will cover the business value proposition behind these, based on deployments and strong interest from CSPs. We will then discuss how we intend to evolve the implementations to use open source in an integral way. We will end with a view of how the transformation of CSPs networks will really be achieved.

Project Atrium: SDN Based Routing & Fabric Solutions - Saurav Das
Project Atrium is ONF's open source SDN distribution, a vertically integrated set of open source components which together form a complete SDN stack. It’s goals are threefold: 1) Close the large integration-gap of the elements that are needed to build an SDN stack; 2) Overcome a massive gap in interoperability; 3) Work closely with network operators on deployable use-cases, so that they could download near production quality code from one location, and get started with functioning software defined networks easily.

This presentation discusses the second Atrium release which focuses on open-source BGP speaking routers built with ODL and ONOS on a variety of vendor switching hardware (NoviFlow, Extreme etc.). We also introduce an open-source datacenter leaf-spine L2/L3 Clos Fabric built using SDN principles, on white-box hardware (EdgeCore) and software from OCP and Broadcom.

SDN Enabled Virtual EPC - Ariel Noy, HPE
A major consideration during the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) architecture design was to provide a functional split between MME, P/S-GW elements so that the mobility management (control) and packet/user plane forwarding functions. Since the development of the EPC architecture and deployment of 4G networks, the amount of traffic, number of devices has exploded. One of the solutions for implementing a next generation S-GW and P-GW uses SDN and NFV technology to split the function further into S/P-GW-Control and S/P-GW-User Plane respectively. This type of implementation leverages the original EPC design philosophy regarding data/control decoupling so that the functions within the gateways can scale independently. This session will provide insights on why this architecture is extremely suitable for 5G and also for cost-effectively growing current EPC infrastructure.

OpenVSwitch and Trace Points: Getting Started in Open Source - Mick Tarsel, IBM
Our goal was to investigate the usage and performance of an OpenVSwitch (OVS) based virtual network in a Docker environment running on an IBM Power system. Our methodology involved scaling up the number of Docker containers and creating a large network load by running TCP bandwidth tests between pairs of containers. As a new member of this Networking team, I joined in the middle of this research and so this presentation will discuss lessons learned while pushing Docker and OVS to their limits. I will provide an overview of the OVS and Docker project but primarily focus on tracing tools. I used such tools as cscope, tcpdump, and perf with trace_event's for debugging in kernel and user space. The aim of this presentation is to show an example of how new developers can get started working on large projects, like OVS, with the help of open source tools.

Safeguarding Vulnerable, Exposed Internet WAN Connected Equipment - Thomas Kee, Tempered Networks
SDN innovations are making migration from highly secured VPN networks to the Internet WAN a reality. Connecting trusted devices and subscribers to a trusted network formerly achieved with complicated equipment and expensive advanced networking services, is now greatly simplified with cutting edge security methods and products that provide robust solutions with military grade encryption, identity assurances, and VPLS network segmentation.

SDN appliances can be quickly and seamlessly deployed, turning vulnerable IP-enabled devices that cannot protect themselves into hardened, invisible assets. Cloaking technologies minimize potential network attack surfaces, significantly reducing vulnerability to externally mounted attacks. With added intelligent control plane management APIs, developers can quickly deploy flexible network customizations, simplifying IT network management.

Distributed Peer-to-Peer ONOS Provider for a Multi-Domain Environment - Matteo Gerola, CREATE-NET
This presentation focuses on an open-source solution for multi-domain SDN networks, built on top of ONOS. The Multi-domain ONOS Provider (MDOP) relies on a per domain organization, where each ONOS cluster is in charge of an SDN domain, and provides a lightweight and highly manageable inter-controller event-based multicast channel. Inside each domain, ONOS provides high-availability, scalability, and fault-tolerance, while the peer-to-peer architecture of the MDOP ensures the same features between different administrative domains (AD). To support various scenarios (that can vary from a single AD to a multi ADs use case), we decided to exploit a policy-based approach, in which each domain can apply several policy levels towards remote domains. The MDOP is transparent to all the applications running on top of the ONOS platform, and can be applied to existing deployment without disruptions.

Using TOSCA to Model Your Network Services - Sivan Barzily; GigaSpaces; Chris Lauwers, Ubicity; Derek Palma; Vnomic
NFV is the hot new topic in telecom. Since telecom architectures are quite complex, it is very important that the orchestration of the various VNFs and components is executed in a standardized manner that is portable to any infrastructure. OASIS TOSCA (Topology and Orchestration Specification for Cloud Applications) is an open standard domain specific language, with profiles based on popular languages such as YAML, that describes the topology of cloud based services, their components, relationships, and management processes. In this talk, we will explain how TOSCA can be used to model any VNF and network service and its components in a multi-VIM environment and present various TOSCA use cases being implemented in the real world.

Application Defined E2E Security via SDN and NFV - Linda Dunbar, Huawei
Application Defined Security control is a paradigm for applications, application controllers or clients to dictate what traffic they want to receive, when to receive them and how.
With the Application Defined Security Control, networks can be “cellularized” at application/service granularity for more fine-grained and distributed security control. This approach not only allows applications to dictate what/when/where/how their traffic are delivered, but also allows the controller to place the most suitable virtual security functions at the close proximity to the application end points to fight against advanced attacks more effectively.
The ability to utilize the virtualized security functions on these granular “micro-layers” allows the establishment of comprehensive “default deny” security postures, greatly inhibiting the unwanted traffic or DoS attacks traffic.

MIND: A Machine Learning-based SDN Control Paradigm - Yanhui Geng, Huawei
SDN has emerged as the preferred networking approach for large datacenters. Despite its benefits, the rapidly changing traffic patterns and the dynamic nature of the network pose significant challenges to the decision-making process. To address this, we will present in this talk the MIND (Machine learning based Intelligent Network Dynamics) framework proposed by Huawei Noah’s Ark Lab. The MIND architecture consists of components that employ online machine learning techniques to predict/infer the spatial-temporal traffic information or network state. These results are then used by a policy generation module, which devises an optimal routing policy by learning from the historical data based on a reinforcement learning framework. Extensive experiments with a real SDN testbed demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the self-learning SDN paradigm.

Power-up Networking for Micro-Services: Connecting your application containers with SDN - Jason Messer, Microsoft
SDN can be your unfair advantage when dealing with micro-services from DevOps. It is the ultimate infrastructure-as-code experience – let the developers set their own pace, and still maintain control and reliability for enterprise class infrastructure services. Designing and deploying networks for new micro-service based architectures can be just as fast as the development cycle, if you have the right infrastructure support. We know how to use SDN to solve the challenges of agility, flexibility, scale, availability, and security for VMs in the software-defined data center. But, have you thought about how it could help you cope with a 10 to 100x increase in the number of network endpoints, while maintaining security?

ONF: Its Evolving Role in the Era of Open Source Networking - Dan Pitt, ONF
The Open Networking Foundation has never been easily pigeonholed as a particular kind of organization. Rather, we have strived to do whatever we can to accelerate the adoption of open SDN. Yes, we started with standards and continue to create some standards. But we have known from day one that standards alone will not achieve our objective, so we have always included aspects of commercial adoption by both vendors and operators. Since 2013 we have added open source software to our portfolio, not to become another ODL or ONOS or OPNFV or their ilk. Instead, we use open source to augment and accelerate the other things we do, in a unique and carefully crafted portfolio that maximizes impact with high resource efficiency. In this talk we will describe our thinking, principles, and practices and a (hopefully entertaining) compilation of lessons we have learned on the way.

Building Scale-Out Network Solutions Using SDN and High-Performance OpenFlow Forwarding planes - Marc LeClerc, Noviflow

Scale-Out SDN architecture provides an elegant deployment solution for network functions enabling significant reductions in CAPEX and OPEX and massive scalability.  The flexibility of the solution accommodates a wide range of network applications and services, including routing, service chaining, EPC, and load balancing, to name a few.  This same flexibility allows different network elements to scale independently based on a wide variety of characteristics (number of users, forwarding or controller capacity, bandwidth, etc). In this presentation we will explain the Scale-Out SDN architecture,  we will show how we applied the presented principles to build a Scale-Out SDN Router (based on the ATRIUM Project), and we explain how this architecture enables many applications to scale-out to extremely large configuration in simple, modular increments.

Scalable and High-Performance Virtual Switch Using Pre-vSwitches - Jun Nakajima & Mesut Ergin, Intel
A single and centralized vSwitch (virtual switch), such as OVS (Open vSwitch) can have scalability issues, thus performance issues as it needs to perform low-latency packet processing among the data plane VNFs (Virtual Network Function) running in VMs (virtual machine).

We have been working on inter-VM communication to achieve low-latency and high-throughput at OPNFV. In our prototype based on KVM, the “pre-vSwitch” of the source VM can directly access the destination VM or the shared pages in a protected and efficient fashion. By having a small cache of the information maintained by the vSwitch, the pre-vSwitch can send packets in consistent with the vSwitch. That way we can offload the vSwitch for inter-VM communication, and thus we can improve scalability and performance of the vSwitch. We share our findings and performance data, showing a prototype that uses OVS with DPDK.

Enhancing the SDN Ecosystem - Evolution of OpenFlow - Ben Mack-Crane, Corsa Technology
SDN run-time control solutions need to be more capable, modular, interoperable and robust. The ONF is evolving OpenFlow to accomplish this by defining common core protocol that is independent of datapath protocols (i.e., eliminates assumptions about switch functionality). This enables OpenFlow to be applied equally to any datapath technology. Protocol elements addressing specific datapath technologies are moved to separate specification modules. Network architecture considerations are captured in Table Type Patterns (TTPs) that define the capabilities of SDN elements playing specific roles in a network. Another aim of this work is to support emerging technologies for programmable dataplanes (e.g., the P4 datapath programming language). This presentation will describe how OpenFlow and related SDN software components are being (re-)structured to enhance the open source SDN ecosystem.

ONOS Lightning Talk: Migrating AmLight from Legacy to SDN: Challenges, Results and Next Steps - Jeronimo Bezerra, Florida Int'l University
Remote collaboration and network-aware applications are the new "commodity" for research and education networks. Each day, more users require services from static or dynamic inter-domain L2VPNs to inter-continental L3VPNs. To enhance its capabilities in supporting multiple network-aware applications, the AmLight network was migrated to an SDN approach in mid-2014. Since then, multiple network applications used the virtualization services offered by the SDN stack deployed. All these applications are being evaluated in parallel with traditional applications, such as HTTP, adding more operational complexity. Migrating to SDN also brought a few challenges, from troubleshooting methodologies to new skills required. In this presentation, AmLight will provide an overview of its migration to an SDN approach, and describe its experience using ONOS/SDN-IP.

Adapting Open-Source NMS to an SDN Reality - Jeff Gehlbach, The OpenNMS Group
Since the late 1980s, the discipline of network management has kept up well enough with virtual notions in networks while continuing to rely heavily on the Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP). The rise of SDN and NFV poses similar challenges to the ones brought to the systems management space by server virtualization and cloud computing, leaving practitioners to wonder how much retooling will be needed to cope in this new world.

As the oldest enterprise-grade, open-source network management platform, OpenNMS has proved fairly adaptable so far. In this presentation, Jeff Gehlbach will highlight inventory integrations against OpenDaylight and other controllers; serviceability, topology, and metric data collection both via controller APIs and directly from switches; and what opportunities for growth exist today and in the near future.

Operating OpenStack on a Budget - Dan Mihai Dumitriu & Susan Wu, Midokura
Interest in deploying private clouds based on OpenStack is on the rise, as more and more web scale companies and enterprises consuming public cloud infrastructures alike want to replicate a similar set-up for their in-house software development.

There is a growing trend of modern enterprises leveraging both Amazon Web Services (AWS) and on-premise OpenStack-based private clouds. However, the default networking option in OpenStack remains broken and the plethora of confusing plug-ins makes networking in OpenStack mysterious and difficult to manage.

Enter MidoNet, the open source network virtualization solution favored by DevOps cultures in web scale enterprises and service providers alike. This session will show how Blue Jeans Networks uses MidoNet to build, run and manage large scale virtual networks in OpenStack clouds.

Keynote: Scaling the S in SDN - Albert Greenberg, Director Azure Networking and Distinguished Engineer, Microsoft
In the past several years, the cloud network was transformed and rebuilt in software using SDN – Microsoft Azure has been built on these technologies, enabling greater flexibility and programmability than ever before. Our focus today is on scale, density, and utilization of the programmable network, pushing our infrastructure to meet the demands of today’s massive cloud environments with millions of servers, and new cloud-based workloads.

We introduce the Virtual Filtering Platform, Azure’s programmable dataplane, in which we’ve scaled up the match action table model to support modern high density servers with >40Gbps of bandwidth, while providing the programmability for our many controllers and SDN applications to create new virtual networking functions. We are announcing that VFP, which has been key to scaling our infrastructure, will be made available to the public with Windows Server 2016 to support high density private cloud environments using Azure Stack on premises.

As an example of how new workloads push us to scale further, much of the industry is moving to containerized workloads and microservice architectures. To support this, we have built native integration to extend Azure virtual networking features directly to containers, across Linux and Windows, using our flexible SDN stack. We announce and demo several of these new networking features, as part of the Azure Container Service, allowing customers to deploy and manage containers using several popular open source container orchestrators.

Container Network Interface: Network Plugins for rkt, Kubernetes and Beyond - Josh Wood, CoreOS
With the rise of containers comes new networking problems to solve. Numerous container SDN solutions have entered the market, each best suited for a particular environment. Combined with multiple container runtimes and orchestrators available today, there exists a need for a common layer to allow interoperability between them and the network solutions.

As different environments demand different networking solutions, multiple vendors and viewpoints look to a specification to help guide interoperability. Container Network Interface (CNI) is a specification started by CoreOS with the input from the wider open source community aimed to make network plugins interoperable between container execution engines. It aims to be as common and vendor-neutral as possible to support a wide variety of networking options. Today it is adopted by Kubernetes and rkt.

Overview of Model-Driven SAL and Creating an Application based on MD-SAL - Radhika Hirannaiah, OpenDaylight Project
To achieve a dynamic and robust network control, one method is to add accommodated device control and network agility solutions coupled with existing systems. This can be achieved by OpenDaylight that constitutes a model-driven architecture. OpenDaylight’s service abstraction layer (SAL) design allows a clean separation of the application API from any southbound protocol plugins such as OpenFlow, NETCONF, OVSDB etc. Model-driven SAL (MD-SAL) is the OpenDaylight kernel that interfaces between different layers and modules using APIs to connect and bind requests and services for communication. This delivers a community of models of implemented services responsible for organized distribution and layering of functionality for both providers and consumers.
An overview of MD-SAL’s internals with an emphasis on creating MD-SAL based application for OpenDaylight will be provided.

Panel - Is Innovation in Hardware Dead? - Ritch Dusome, CENGN; Bruce Gregory, Corsa; Martin Izzard, Barefoot Networks; Walter Miron, TELUS; and Cliff Grossner, IHS (Moderator)

Open networking is intended to open innovation to all and drive it at the speed of software development cycles, rather than tie innovation to much longer hardware release cycles. Many believe that this relegates hardware to low cost commodity merchant silicon and white box bare metal systems, yet we still see strong pockets of new hardware.

With the advent of open networking the focus has been on software, but has the pendulum swung too far? Can open networking really make the underlying hardware irrelevant or will hardware such as switch innovation become even more essential? What will solve the open networking industry’s biggest problems – hardware or software innovation? This session will provide valuable insight from a diverse panel of software, hardware and service provider experts.

DPDK & BESS: Fast Packet Processing for NFV - Sangjin Han, UC Berkley; Christian Maciocco, Intel; Joshua Reich, AT&T Labs
We will present cutting-edge technologies for high-performance packet processing on general-purpose CPUs. We begin with Intel's Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK), a set of libraries and drivers that can be used to receive and send packets within the minimum number of CPU cycles, develop fast packet processing algorithms, and run third-party fast path stacks. We then turn to the Berkeley Extensible Software Switch (BESS) that picks up where DPDK leaves off: providing a modular framework for functions such as L2/L3 forwarding, IPsec, and firewalling. Developed jointly by UC Berkeley, Intel and AT&T, BESS offers both maximal extensibility and extremely high performance: outperforming current soft-switches for OPNFV usage models. This makes BESS ideal for custom applications---unlike monolithic software switches whose large baked-in feature sets consume resources and hamper extensibility.

It is recommended that attendees bring their laptops with them for this session.

Rise of Open Cloud Architectures and Over-the-Top Network Services - Fred Hsu, Arista; Rami Yaron, MEF; Mark McClain, Akanda.io

To meet greater traffic demands and lower operating costs, some of the world’s largest service providers today are looking at open source software to deliver new network services using OpenStack and Linux containers.

In January 2016, AT&T pledged to use open source software for 50 percent of their network network services by 2019. Similarly, other companies such as Comcast and Verizon are working with industry groups such as ETSINFV, Metro Ethernet Forum (MEF), and the Open Cloud Project to develop reference infrastructures as code using OpenStack.

In this presentation, Arista, MEF and Akanda will demonstrate OpenStack implementations for over the top network services. Over the top network services allow companies to manage multivendor cloud environments and mix and match the network functions they want. Each company will discuss how network functions can be abstracted from network hardware and delivered as an open source network service. Examples include dynamic north/south (N/S) routing,load balancing and securityasaservice.

Akanda and Arista will demonstrate how to provision north/south routing and vpn services, using an OpenStack infrastructure. Akanda will explain how OpenStack Astara can setup and manage virtualized network services from multiple vendors. Arista will demonstrate how OpenStack Astara can manage bare metal servers and other types of physical infrastructure (e.g. L2 Gateway) that are not traditionally part of an OpenStack solution. Finally, Finally, Menezes will discuss how open reference infrastructures from the Metro Ethernet Forum and the Open Cloud Project can be turned into code using open source tools like OpenStack Astara, Glance, Nova & Neutron.

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning plays a crucial role in network modelling, design and planning. The key part of decision making depends on the data available. SDN controller is a treasure trove of information due to its inherent nature of managing networks in a centralized fashion. ODL controller which is leading SDN controller in the market has this data in terms of Data store (DS). There are no modules in ODL that can digest the data/information from the DS that are spread across various DS and provide network intelligence and decision framework.

Towards Continuous Delivery in Open Source Projects - Daniel Farrell, Red Hat
In a world of ubiquitous Continuous Integration testing, Continuous Delivery is becoming a requirement for modern open source projects. Integration-focused projects like OPNFV can only validate consumed upstream projects as frequently as they provide testable release artifacts. As integration tests become more frequent (towards Continuous Integration), the frequency of the integrated projects’ releases must increase (towards Continuous Delivery).

The release artifacts expected from modern open source projects are also becoming increasingly complex. Vagrant boxes and Docker containers need to be built alongside traditional packages. Configuration management options like Ansible and Puppet need to be provided.

These topics and others, from the trenches of building OpenDaylight’s delivery pipeline.

Multi-Layer Performance Based Path Computation Engine Enhancements to ONOS Controller for SD WAN Packet Optical Integration - Raghu Gangi & Mukesh Kumar, ADARA Networks & David Altstaetter, CALIENT
Cloud Computing’s evolution increasingly incorporates performance as a service primitive in conjunction with virtualization creating additional considerations for developers addressing service response time using legacy protocols for topology discovery, and forwarding; such protocols are agnostic to performance parameters required to imbue service delivery guarantees. The ONOS controller framework and ADARA Path Compute Engine (PCE) solves these industry issues via implementation of Performance Based, Automated Multilayer Path Computation. ADARA’s PCE is based dynamic network state as opposed to static parameters, enabling dynamic multilayer performance as methodology for service reachability, workload placement, load balancing, infrastructure configuration, reliability and multi-layer network virtualization with SDN Packet Optical integration. This represents a non-evolutionary advance.

Driving Standards from Code - ECI's Work with ONOS - Hayim Porat, ECI Telecom
ECI Telecom had traditionally developed proprietary code based on telecom industry standards. With SDN (and NFV) ECI made a strategic decision to move to open source. The first platform was chosen to be the SDN controller. After testing and evaluating several options ECI had decided to go with ONOS. Moreover, ECI had decided to take the approach of "code is king" by promoting innovation into industry standards (in this case Openflow) first contributing code to the community, let the community asses its value and only then, try to take it to the SDOs.

In this presentation we will present the process ECI went through in adopting open-source and will discuss the work we have done in augmenting OF with optical capabilities as well as our suggestions for a much more agile packet based OF and its impact on the controller architecture.

Packet Processed Storage in a Software Defined World - Ash Young, Huawei
The storage arena has strived to significantly improve its storage capabilities over the years via technologies such as FCoE and NVMe. Simply reducing where the protocol sits in terms of the OSI model has proven to not be the solution. Similarly, eliminating the CPU from being the bottleneck for local storage I/O is also not the answer. Instead, we must assume that storage blocks or objects must ultimately be exchanged over a network; and if storage ultimately goes over the network, then we must re-think storage as packet processing.

Building Scalable SDN Applications - Masood Ul Amin, Aricent

Software-defined networking (SDN) promises a networking utopia by separating the control plane from the physical network topology to create an environment wherein all switches and routers take their traffic forwarding cues from a centralized management controller.

This talk is centered on Aricent’s approach of building applications on top of the commercial of the shelf controllers, which forms the top tier of the three tier architecture; where applications directs security, management and other specific functions through the controller.

The approach, which is a path for building scalable applications that provides an alternate way of provisioning, monitoring and controlling the transport network. Many network equipment vendors have announced support for OpenFlow and the talk will build the use case around them. Center around an instant VPN (I-VPN) application providing connectivity between multiple sites of a service provider/enterprise network, very similar to the traditional MPLS VPN without the need to run complex protocols on the nodes. An application suite comprising of load balancing, bandwidth management and monitoring applications details how the complex process of VPN management is simplified in the new paradigm.

Building scalable applications address the following:

Application: The main intelligence block responsible for shaping network traffic depending on the application involved VPN, BoD, and Network Balancing. How they can be controlled by the higher level controlling function namely the Orchestration Layer. It will touch on the North Bound Interface and how it controls the Application and the issues and challenges in designing this interface.

Controller: The talk will center on OpenDaylight (ODL). How it is leveraged to build the transport applications? The adapter concept which makes the applications controller agnostic. The application was built long before the support for similar function was available on ODL and will highlight how this application is sufficiently decoupled to extend to other use cases namely the transport SDN and not necessarily target the datacenter use cases. It will capture some of the challenges we faced in migrating the application across controllers from Floodlight to HP VAN and ODL and possible to ONOS in the future. It will touch upon our view as to what should be minimum available support from the controller which gives the necessary flexibility.

Switches: The OpenFlow Switches. The challenges and issue faced in crafting a solution in building application that can work on top of OpenFlow 1.3 as supported by OVS, Broadcom OFDPA running on top of Trident plus, and an implementation of OpenFlow on top of Intel DPDK Platform.

Architectures for a Multi-Vendor IP-Optical Control Solution - Ori Gerstel, Sedonay Systems
Integrated control of the IP and optical layers is one of the main use cases for SDN in SP networks. It promises to change the way SP networks are planned and operated. It cuts CAPEX by more than 40%; simplifies operations; improves network resiliency; and enables cloud-era connectivity on demand. However, the solution must be carefully architected to support multi-vendor environments. I will discuss different solution architectures and focus on a highly modular framework that enables a pre-standard working solution today, while allowing for independent evolution of its components by various vendors to support emerging standards. I will demonstrate this solution running on commercial network gear from multiple optical and router vendors in the lab of Telefonica. I will then survey the main use cases for the technology and demonstrate how they are addressed by this solution.

End-to-End Orchestration of Multitier Clouds based on Software-Defined Infrastructure - Hadi Bannazadeh
We propose to speak on how end-to-end orchestration is supported in the SAVI application platform testbed. SAVI has deployed a national testbed in Canada that explores the delivery of applications across a multitier cloud that spans core datacenters, a smart edge, and virtualized customer premise edges. The SAVI management system operates over OpenStack, OpenFlow, and other resource controllers to provide IAAS in support of applications. We will describe how to use the networking services provided in SAVI (including pro-active path setup, flow store, and tunneling for legacy networks) as well as its service chaining capability to enable end-to-end deployment of applications across a three-tier cloud. We will describe applications that have been deployed and briefly demo a couple of applications.

Model-Driven APIs for Network Programmability - Santiago Alvarez, Cisco

This session describes how to simplify network programmability using APIs generated from data models. The numerous choices of protocols, transports and encodings may bring complexity to the automation of network devices.  Model-driven APIs allow the network programmer to focus on the underlying structure of the configuration and operational data associated with the device.  They abstract protocols, transports and encodings, plus free the programmer from having to master the specifics of the modeling language that the network device uses.

Path Protection and Failover Strategies in SDN Networks - Rashmi Pujar, Inocybe Technologies
In a SDN solution it is crucial to have a self healing network that detects node and link failure events to recover the connectivity of a system by exploiting redundant links; all of which is transparent to the user.
Failover mechanisms can be implemented either using slow-reroute or hard-reroute.
1. Slow-reroute is done in software using disjoint path calculation algorithms (E.g. Suurballe algorithm) and standard Openflow features.
2. Fast-reroute is done using hardware assisted OAM with 802.1ag path failure detection and using Openflow group failover table features.
Opendaylight controller currently implements path failure detection and recovery using slow-reroute mechanism. In this presentation we discuss the current implementation of failover mechanisms, and the challenges in supporting it in the SDN paradigm.
