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
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
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 email@example.com

System testing is an essential way to uncover issues that are difficult to anticipate at design time (a.k.a “the unknown unknowns”). This talk will describe what we’ve developed in system test for ONOS. We will touch on the general continuous integration(CI) environment - tools and strategies. We will describe various test suites in the current ONOS system test. One of the key elements in this CI environment is the TestON framework - a tool for authoring and executing test cases. We will discuss further details on the TestON framework and how an ONOS test developer can develop and contribute test cases using this framework. Finally, we want to share some of the experiences and pitfalls in developing for the ONOS system test.
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.
Driven by the need for agility, cost reductions, and adoption of off-premises cloud services, the software-defined wide area network (SD-WAN) rollout is underway, with 2015 live production deployments by early adopters providing a trail for others to follow. As SD-WAN “crosses the chasm,” moving from early adopters to mainstream buyers, decision makers must make important long-term choices about their WAN architectures. Four enterprise customers and their vendors will share their experience deploying SD-WAN, and provide suggestions for purchase-decision makers.
Vendors will introduce customers and provide a 1 slide summary after customer presents
As part of the UNITE program, the MEF is playing a major role in unifying the ecosystem of industry standards and open source players – including ONF, ETSI NFV, TM Forum, OpenDaylight,OPNFV, ON.Lab, and others – to accelerate the industry transition to more dynamic, assured, and orchestrated network services. The MEF has launched two new open source initiatives OpenCS (Open Connectivity Services) and OpenLSO (Open Lifecycle Service Orchestration) to help bring Third Network services to market faster.
This presentation reviews the classes of stakeholders involved in this work, introduces MEF's new Open LSO and Open CS initiatives and proposes how collaboration will drive the industry forward in this LSO-SDN-NFV era.P
ACTN has started in IETF to address architecture and requirements for both information model and data/protocol models. One of the main objectives of ACTN is to provide scalable performance for a large-scale automated network that comprises a number of multi-layer and multi-domain networks. To address this objective, a new open-source project has been launched (https://sites.google.com/site/openactn/home) and actual implementation is in progress in both ONOS and ODL. This presentation will include an early implementation experience to address interoperability and scalable high-performance in the context of multi-platform controllers (e.g., ONOS and ODL), multi-vendor and multi-technology (e.g., packet and optical).
Pertinent audience who can benefit with this presentation includes implementers of ONOS/ODL, operators, vendors, application providers and so on. ACTN can provide benefits to the ecosystem in many ways. It promotes open-source multi-vendor inter-operability, easy adoption in the dev ops environments, and proof of concept demo/trial with operators to guide industry.
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.
To realize NFV, interoperability across an open ecosystem is the most important goal. This talk will share CableLabs' approaches to enable consistent and open APIs for efficient evolvable integration across the entire ecosystem including NFV and SDN. The talk will also highlight how open source, in conjunction with OPNFV labs, can help to accelerate NFV realization.
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.
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.
Enterprise private cloud requirements are evolving as software defined anything is opening new possibilities. From applications to infrastructure, operations teams are changing the traditional SDN architecture to become more than just programming the data center fabric. Modern SDNs are hardware agnostic and pervasive in hypervisors, operating systems, and applications with embedded security, network functions, analytics, monitoring, and intelligent services stitching that span across any virtual machine, container, or bare metal hybrid environments. Join this session to find out more about how modern SDNs are no longer just network programmability, but reshaping enterprise private clouds and end user experience.
The MEF is focused on enabling dynamic Third Network services for the digital economy and the hyper-connected world, providing businesses an on-demand, cloud-connected, secure, and assured experience. The MEF provides a practical evolution toward interconnected, orchestrated, and automated networks powered by Open LSO (lifecycle service orchestration), SDN, and NFV implementations. The MEF has established a technical framework that includes architecture, information models, services, operational processes, LSO, open source implementations, and certification programs. MEF's work is conducted internally and – under the guidance of the MEF UNITE program – in cooperation with global standards organizations and open source projects.
This presentation will explain how LSO is the critical enabler of automated and virtualized networks built with SDN and NFV.

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.
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.
