Tutorial: IOT and Networking Introduction - Architecture, Requirements & Implementation - Drasko Draskovic & Janko Isidorovic, Mainflux
Architecturing and Securing IoT Cloud Platforms, Drasko Draskovic, Mainflux

IoT device management and multi-protocol messaging platform demands specific architectural decisions and high-concurrency approaches due to the massive number of devices we expect to be connected in the near future. All of this must be done with high security in mind, as well as respecting requirements for low-power, memory constrained devices with intermittent connectivity and limited bandwidth.

We will analyze the architecture, implementation and testing procedures needed for creating an industry-grade IoT platform and propose a patent-free open-source solution based on a set of scalable microservices with high concurrency and high security based on PKI with specific ciphers and encryption procedures that are suitable for constrained devices.

Tutorial: The Interoperability Challenge in Telecom and NFV Environments - Carsten Rossenhövel, EANTC AG; Chris Price, Ericsson; Ildiko Vancsa, OpenStack Foundation

Communications service providers (CSPs) have a wide range of options when building virtualized services from the ground up including multiple choices for each functional block in the ETSI NFV reference architecture.  CSPs prefer heterogeneous systems with building blocks from different vendors including open source software; for such deployments interoperability becomes a crucial requirement.

OpenStack, as the NFVI and VIM, serves as a widely used cloud platform for telecom and NFV use cases. As a common base, OpenStack offers the means for vendors and other open source projects to ease the interoperability challenge by providing a set of open API’s while focusing on upgradeability and backward compatibility.

However, when it comes to productization, interoperability testing often falls short and is sometimes left to the carrier as shown by the testing programs actively run by no fewer than 10 organizations today.

Join Carsten Rossenhövel from the European Advanced Networking Test Center (EANTC) and the rapporteur (editor) of ETSI’s NFV interoperability standards, Ildikó Váncsa from the OpenStack Foundation, and Chris Price, Ericsson and OpenStack board director to learn more about

  • The ETSI NFV Release 2 interoperability testing activities - standardization and recently completed ETSI PlugTest. Over 40 commercial and open source implementations were tested for interoperability, including 20 virtual network functions, 10 management and orchestration solutions and 10 NFV platforms.

  • The New IP Agency (NIA) interoperability testing campaigns of commercial NFV implementations executed by EANTC, focusing on results, lessons learned and recommendations.

  • How vendors and open source projects are stepping up to the challenge, realizing they must work together.

  • How to stay up-to-date with OpenStack releases and the community.

  • How to get involved to ensure you are aware of the latest developments and contribute what you need to OpenStack.

What will I learn from attending this session?

CSPs, open source projects and vendors alike will learn more about the recent ETSI PlugTest and NIA-commissioned interoperability testing, their results and how to architect full NFV solutions that will work together. Interoperability API tests and associated marks from OpenStack will be covered, as well as features to help stay current on OpenStack releases. Attendees will also hear from Ericsson about a vendor’s point of view, and how other projects such a OPNFV are evolving and expanding in scope to address this challenge.

SOSR Keynote - Network Programming for the Cloud ERA - Ratul Mahajan, Co-founder and CEO, Intentionet (RSVP Required- Limited Availability)
Due to their unprecedented scale and workload dynamics, engineering networks that enable cloud computing requires an extreme focus on efficiency, reliability, and agility (ERA). The traditional network programming model, which is low-level and device-oriented, no longer suffices for these networks because it results in poor ERA. In this talk, I will first provide one perspective on high-level network programming and what it means for a network to be fully programmable. I will then describe how existing research and systems, including some that my collaborators and I have developed, can be viewed through this perspective. I will conclude with speculations about where network programming may be (or should be) headed.

Tutorial: Getting Started with NFV Testing - Trevor Cooper, Intel & Jose Lausuch, Ericsson
A key tenant of moving NFV from a Proof of Concept (Poc) to deployment is testing. NFV solutions that pull from open source projects such as OPNFV, OpenStack, OpenDaylight, and others must be integrated and tested in an environment that fully supports the performance and availability requirements of service provider networks. Testing criteria and solutions are also required to ensure NFV interoperability between hardware and software systems that comprise NFV. In this tutorial, you’ll learn best practices for open source NFV testing, including: methodology; mapping to ETSI NFV use-case/s; open source project integration; testing dashboards; Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD); and testing acceleration.

Tutorial: Service Orchestration - Way Beyond SDNFV Orchestration - Presented by MEF

While service providers are quickly ramping up their capabilities to orchestrate Virtualized Network Functions and SDN components, many are starting to realize that work gets them only part way to their goal of growing their revenue. For that they need to offer new, lucrative services built on top of the foundation of SDN and NFV. This tutorial addresses the orchestration of services for business agility.

To this end, MEF and TM-Forum are collaborating with major service providers in a transformational initiative to standardize Lifecycle Services Orchestration (LSO) application programming interfaces (APIs) for orchestrating connectivity services across multiple networks worldwide. AT&T, Orange, Colt Technology Services, Comcast, Level 3, PCCW Global, Sparkle, Verizon, and CableLabs’ Kyrio are leading the effort. Standardized APIs are a critical step toward enabling agile, assured, and orchestrated Third Network services over more automated, virtualized, and interconnected networks globally.

This tutorial will provide attendees with practical information on network architecture, Virtualized Network Functions deployment, and the Lifecycle Service Orchestration for an end-to-end connectivity and cloud services.  We will also discuss some use cases for Virtual Network Functions applications in the network, the orchestration of the services, as well as, a lesson learned during the implementation of a major multi-operator connectivity service using Carrier Ethernet, L3VPN, and SD-WAN and the complex Orchestration of such service.


Agenda:

* Welcome
* Considerations for Deploying Virtual Network Functions and Services
* Multi-domains and Multi-operators Lifecycle Service Orchestration for Rapidly Introducing      New Network Functionality
* SD-WAN Tutorial: Solution Components, Architecture, and Use Cases for SD-WAN Managed Services

NTT Communications are trying to adopt disaggregation approach for them to transform our operations by integrating commoditized multi-vendor components and SDN technology. 

 In this presentation, we will talk about our expectations for disaggregated transport networks and its controller architecture with multiple SDN controllers including open source software. Furthermore, we will show our internal evaluation result of disaggregated transport network feasibility and discuss future development plans.

The Modeling Interplay Between Standards & Open Source NFV Orchestrators - Bruce Thompson, Cisco; Rittwik Jana, AT&T; Lingli Deng, China Mobile; Hui Deng, Huawei

As the standards on NFV orchestration evolves slowly, and also there are many MANO open source implementation today like OSM, OPEN-O, Open-Baton, Tacker, even ECOMP. there is an increasingly considerable divergence among open source implementations, which may lead to industry fragmentation since the alignment of the Open Source and Standard on information/data modeling, which is critical to enable interoperability among MANO stack components. The invited panelists, are expected to discuss the current practice and status of collaboration between related SDOs and open source communities on NFV orchestration, which is particularly focused on identifying and addressing potential gaps between SDO specifications to open source implementations  (e.g. Among ETSI NFV IFA, YANG, Tosca and OpenStack).

Implications of 5G to All Layers of Stack - Moderated by Prodip Sen, HPE

5G is the natural evolution of today’s mobile networks, but it is far more than a faster radio access technology. Like the previous generations of mobile network standards (2G, 3G, 4G …), 5G is driven by the promise of faster and more efficient radio access technology that promises ubiquitous broadband (50Mbps everywhere), lower latency, seamless communication for mobility at higher speeds, and extreme scale. But the 5G architecture is also introducing a re-architecture of the core, incorporating new technologies and approaches that have emerged in the telco networking industry – software-defined networking (SDN), network functions virtualization (NFV), and mobile edge computing (MEC) to name a few. 

There are several industry-wide open development efforts relevant to many of the component technologies and architectures mentioned above. But given the focus on performance, scale, reliability and manageability for 5G networks, can open development and open networking be relevant here? The challenge is to design a common network infrastructure that can serve disparate use cases. The diversity of requirements necessitates a network architecture that is flexible, programmable, intelligent and distributed.  This panel will discuss the question of how we can harness the power of openness to achieve this goal. The panel will cover the point of view both of owners and operators of 5G networks, as well as solution, software and system providers.

Sample questions (exemplary only):

·       What constitutes a 5 G network for you – do you consider it as a better radio access, or something more?

·       Are you in the process of transforming your network? How is that related to 5G?

·       Do you see a relationship between the network transformation being undertaken by CSPs and 5G networks, and what is it?

·       What business problems are you attempting to solve by transitioning to 5G networks?

·       Do you see 5G enabling new devices or new customer sets for you?

·       A lot of emphasis has been placed on standards and standardization for 5G networks. Is there a role for open development and open source here?

·       How do you balance the stringent requirements that 5G networks are expected to address, and the nature of open development?

Beyond Micro-Services Architecture - Larry Peterson, Open Networking Lab

Building scalable cloud applications as a collection of micro-services is a promising approach to NFV Orchestration. This is because micro-services are well established as the cornerstone of DevOps, which operators see as a path to improving agility. But organizing a collection of VNFs as micro-services is not sufficient. There are two issues. The first is that micro-services assume a single domain of trust, but network operators must accommodate multiple actors. The second is that micro-services isolate information, but orchestration requires global visibility across a set of micro-services. This talk describes a service control plane that is layered on top of a collection of micro-services to address these two limitations. In addition to describing the role of a service control plane, this talk reports our experiences implementing and using a service control plane in CORD.

High Availability in Disaggregated Networks - Saurav Das, Open Networking Foundation
All major networking vendors have proprietary datacenter fabric products. We present an open-source fabric built with white-boxes & SDN, performing L2 switching at ToRs and L3 routing between racks. Being SDN based, the fabric avoids the use of traditional switch/router networking protocols, but allows the entire fabric to be presented as a single BGP/OSPF speaking router to the outside world. We explain why this feature is a big advantage in several networking contexts. This unique construction does however present challenges when designing for high-availability. As a result, we discuss design decisions made for achieving system-HA, including N-way controller redundancy, dual-Quagga in active-active mode, dual-ToRs with pair-links, dual-uplinks to the same spine, and dual-homed servers and other attached equipment. We discuss the upcoming release of this work and potential deployments.

Software Defined Standards - Larry Peterson, Open Networking Lab

Standards have long played an important role in the telecommunications industry, but there is increasing recognition that open source software is the key to rapid innovation. This realization is the impetus behind the recently announced plans for ONF and ON.Lab to merge, where the goal is to “simultaneously prototype-and-prove new solutions while laying the groundwork for those solutions to interoperate with each other.” It is this combination of agility and interoperability that the new ONF hopes will provide the best opportunity to grow and accelerate the adoption of SDN.

This is reminiscent of the IETF’s original "rough consensus and running code" mantra, but thanks to SDN, much has changed in how we build networks. This talk outlines our plan to combine the best of ONF and ON.Lab, and our experiences to-date pursuing Software Defined Standards.

Troubleshooting for Intent-Based Networking - Joon-Myung Kang & Mario Sanchez, Hewlett Packard Labs

Intent-based networking has gained a lot of interest in recent years with several different open source communities (including ONF, OpenDaylight and ONOS).  However, network diagnosis and troubleshooting remain two essential aspects of network management that still require massive manual effort and extensive expert knowledge.  So far, no approach has focused on troubleshooting the network at the intent level. We argue that providing reasoning capabilities about why an observed network state happens according to specified input policies can help simplify this complexity. In this talk, we present our work on network troubleshooting at the intent level. Our solution provides capabilities to enable posing what-if type questions at the policy level –e.g. when a new input policy is introduced– to help answer reachability questions both at the policy and infrastructure level.

How Does Uber Check the Health of its Data Center (DC) and Cloud Infrastructures Every 10 Sec? - Vasileios Lakafosis, Uber

One of the major challenges and requirements in achieving a very high (>99.99%) reliability of operation of any major network infrastructure (i.e. data center, enterprise, campus, etc.) is the ability to design and deploy an always-on active system that performs end-to-end functional  testing of all the network-connected infrastructure components and, as a result, monitors the infrastructure and its dependent external services with high accuracy and granularity (down to  the packet level) in the most efficient way; consuming the least amount of computational or network resources. 

When it comes to packet loss detection, 
metrics reported by the original manufacturers cannot be relied upon; their tools may either be buggy or, in most cases, do not provide APIs for extracting measurements. Therefore, we needed to create our own tool; this is the gap Arachne is filling.

In this talk, we present Arachne. Arachne is a packet loss detection system and an underperforming path detection system. It provides fast and easy active end-to-end functional testing of all the components in Data Center (DC) and Cloud infrastructures. Arachne is able to detect intra-DC, inter-DC, DC-to-Cloud, and DC-to-External-Services issues by generating minimal traffic.

Specification and verification of computer networks has become a reality in recent years, with the emergence of domain-specific programming languages and automated reasoning tools. But the design of these frameworks has been largely ad hoc, driven more by the needs of applications and the capabilities of hardware than by any foundational principles. This talk will present NetKAT, a language for programming networks based on a well-studied mathematical foundation: regular languages and finite automata. The talk will describe the design of the language, its semantic underpinnings, and discuss ongoing work extending the language with stateful and probabilistic features.

Rethinking NFV: Where Have We Gone Wrong & How Can We Get it Right? - Scott Shenker & Sylvia Ratnasamy, UC Berkeley

The NFV movement has embraced “openness” as its central tenet, spawning multiple open source orchestration efforts. However, the focus on openness has left several important goals unaddressed, such as operational simplicity, state-of-the-art performance, and advanced development tools for NFs. In this talk, Scott Shenker and Sylvia Ratnasamy will survey the state of NFV and point to a new approach which retains the important goal of openness, which is preventing vendor lock-in, while providing much better simplicity, performance, and development tools than the current NFV ecosystem has yet achieved.

Panel Discussion: IoT in Action - Architecting, Securing & Scaling Applications - Moderated by Cliff Grossner & Elizabeth Cruz, IHS Markit
Smart Cities require a large scale and high performance open network, tasked with carrying vast amounts of IoT data from connected devices and building infrastructure while simultaneously guaranteeing sensitive information remains private. To do this many factors need to be considered: policy for traffic prioritization, techniques for network partitioning, common APIs and standards, and shared data and security models. Should a smart city network be a shared infrastructure following a public utility model? To what extent do smart city networks need to be open while remaining secure? What open network initiatives do we need to enable building large scale networks for smart cities?

Efficient Geographic Replication & DR Using Open Source Controller - Colin Dixon & Tom Pantelis, Brocade; Brian Freeman, AT&T

Most, if not all, modern network controllers acknowledge that they are distributed systems and must deal with how to replicate state. There is a trade-off between strong consistency (with easier debugging, programming models, and understandability) on the one hand and tolerance for high latency between controllers and possible partitions on the other hand. To address this, we have extended a strongly-consistent data store (based on RAFT) to also allow for best-effort replication to additional nodes. This allows there to be a small number of nodes (with low latency between them) providing a strongly-consistent data store, while efficiently replicating state to other entities including other controllers acting as warm standbys to handle disaster recovery. Future extensions can allow simple federation by leveraging selective best-effort replication to exchange state without tight coupling.

Abstracting Brown Field in Control Layer - Ali Tizghadam, TELUS

The path towards open networking among service providers and enterprise is not as smooth, primarily due to the existence of huge vendor-specific software and hardware. In this presentation, Ali Tizghadam will explain how TELUS has overcome the issue by introducing a customized open data dissemination platform. The platform enables service providers to write customized plugins for their legacy data collectors (brown field) and at the same time enables them to embrace data collectors available in open community for green field development. The platform publishes data to a common broker network, where one can subscribe to specific data and receive new updates. Moreover, the platform offers APIs for on demand access to the data in standard way. Using this approach, TELUS has abstracted the legacy layer from control layer and all controllers / orchestrators use one unified data access method.

Accelerated SDN in Azure - Gabriel Silva & Daniel Firestone, Microsoft

SDN is at the foundation of all large scale networks in the public cloud, such as Microsoft Azure - at past ONSes, Microsoft has detailed how all of Azure's virtual networks, load balancing, and security operate on SDN. But how do we make a software network scale to an era of 40, 50, and 100 gigabit networks on servers, providing great performance to end customers with ever increasing VM and container scale and density?

In this presentation, Daniel Firestone and Gabriel Silva will detail Azure Accelerated Networking, using Azure's FPGA-based SmartNICs. They will show how using FPGAs, we can achieve the programmability of a software network with the performance of a hardware one. They will detail how this and other host SDN advances have led to huge performance increases for Linux VMs in particular, and Linux-based NFV appliances, giving Azure industry-leading network performance.

The Nirvana SDN Stack for NFV - Paul Carver, AT&T

While innovative, leading edge open source efforts are happening more and more often. Cleaning up after such forward progress is often forgotten. Consolidation and interoperability of the SDN controller and data plane domains remain an elusive target. There is way too much non-differentiated value in the ecosystem and not enough developers to warrant the diversity.  As the open source initiatives associated with SDN controller and data plane become increasingly abundant we would like to take this opportunity to discuss the benefits of both diversity and consolidation in this domain.  The recent emergence of the ODL controller with an FD.io forwarding plane to address carrier needs provides a new compelling option.

How to Choose Open Source Infrastructure Solutions for Your Enterprise - Lisa Caywood, OpenDaylight

Open source adoption is quite mature at the application level, often to the point of invisibility. The use of open source in infrastructure is far newer, and subject to many myths and much confusion, from expected cost savings to technical investment required. In the absence of understanding how to evaluate and consume open source options, many enterprises have  defaulted to wholly proprietary solutions from their existing vendors, in spite of their desire for greater purchasing flexibility. In this talk, Lisa Caywood, OpenDaylight Director of Ecosystem Development, will discuss:

- How to evaluate the health and outlook of an open-source infrastructure project

- What "free" means?

- Acquisition options, from download/compile to shrink-wrapped solutions

- How and why to work with vendors

- What to look for in commercial open source solutions

- Advantages of upstream involvement

Is Centralized Really Less Complex? - Russ White, LinkedIn

There is a widespread impression in the network engineering world that centralized control planes are simpler than distributed control planes. This impression often drives the perception of the future of network engineering and design in a way that favors centralized controller based systems over more traditional distributed control planes. This session will investigate this claim by considering centralized and distributed control planes in the light of two models; a network complexity model, and the CAP theorem. The proposed outcome is a more realistic view of complexity in centralized systems, and a possible way forward in thinking through where each kind of control plane is useful.

Economics of How Software is Eating the World - Robert Cohen, Economic Strategy Institute

This presentation makes five points:

1. Software innovations have become central to business operations. obtaining high performance software, such as Open Source Software, is nearly zero if a firm uses an online exchange such as GitHub and has access to a permissive license. This speeds up software development and reduces its cost because firms can often avoid paying licensing costs.

2. Software innovations are employed in such a wide range of industries that software should be a General-Purpose Technology.

3. Software behaves unlike other products. It is part of a continuing development process with developers adding code as needed. This ongoing process can be seen in new Internet-related software, such as Linux, Open Source, and Docker/containers.

4. The time it takes to complete software innovations is dropping sharply. 

5. Businesses take swift advantage of software innovations

Open Source for Broadband Access - Greg Whelan, Greywale Insights

Broadband is mandatory for the economic success of communities around the globe. Yet, the economics of last mile fiber networks are daunting. To be successful, service providers of all ilk need business and technical architectures that address real-world challenges of the access network. Open source initiatives, such as CORD project, have emerged as a technical architecture that provides an open platform to support a wide range of today’s access network business models. The business of access is changing however. Consumer demands for higher speeds, cord cutting, cities building their own broadband network, new last mile entrants such as GoogleFiber, edge processing and emerging wireless technologies are all impacting the business of access.  This presentation will discuss the challenges of broadband, the current broken broadband ecosystem and how open source leads to Open Broadband Access, a technical and business architecture that benefits the entire ecosystem and creates a platform for innovation.

Next-Gen Network Telemetry is Within Your Packets: In-Band OAM - Frank Brockners, Cisco
While troubleshooting or planning, did you ever wish to get full insight into which paths *all* your packets take in your network, understand whether your SLA is really in place, or were you ever asked to prove that your traffic really follows the path you specified by service chaining or traffic engineering? We approach this problem by adding meta-data to *all* packets. In-band OAM adds forwarding path information and other information/stats to every data packet - as opposed to relying on probe packets, which is the traditional method that tools like ping or traceroute use. This session will introduce In-band OAM, explain the technology and outline the reference implementation in FD.io/VPP and OpenDaylight using a example demos.

Cloud Native NFV Networking - Bin Hu, AT&T
Micro-service application fabric in cloud native framework requires the visibility and control of specific functionality to the developers so as to enable the scalability of specific functions within an application. Meanwhile, NFV networking service on-demand requires quick development and deployment of new APIs according to fine-grained deployment requirement. The convergence of NFV networking service on a cloud native platform gives rise to unique characteristics in architecture and technology framework. This presentation explores the use case, requirement and characteristics of architectural framework to enable cloud native NFV networking on-demand for carriers. Specific technology, i.e. a model-driven, extensible framework will be introduced to enable the “right-size” functionality to the “point-in-time” demand, and the scalability through those “micro-service” APIs.

Making Strongly-typed NETCONF Usable - Colin Dixon & Ryan Goulding, Brocade
NETCONF's use of strongly-typed YANG to describe device configuration makes safe and robust device configuration possible, but also exposes complexities in operation. Most deployments choose to use a controller or management system to help with issues of inventory and credential management. Further, this controller often does sanity checks to ensure that operations are likely to be successful on devices and, if not, there is useful debugging information. Frustratingly, this exposes trade-offs between relying on strict enforcement of YANG to catching errors early and more relaxed behavior to enable compatibility with imperfect NETCONF implementations in the real world. We show how we navigated these trade-offs to provide a flexible, open-source NETCONF solution that is strongly-typed and enables simple configuration changes for compatibility with imperfect NETCONF implementations.

Dynamic Configuration & Provisioning of Devices and Services with HA and Performance - Thomas Vachuska, ON.Lab
Historically, forwarding plane control has been nearly synonymous with SDN. However, real-world experiences have shown that device-centric and network-wide service configuration are also essential parts of the overall SDN picture. The ONOS community is working on platform capabilities that will enable network operators to use a model-driven approach for provisioning and configuring their environments using YANG as a modeling language and NETCONF & RESTCONF as standard protocols for interacting with network devices and with various orchestration platforms. Our goal is to offer these capabilities in the context of high-availability and while preserving the scalability and performance characteristics of the ONOS distributed controller platform. This talk will provide the audience with an update on these efforts, our experiences and our vision for these features.

Becoming Cloud Native: Taking it One Container at a Time - Chris Aniszczyk, The Linux Foundation

Are we close to hitting peak confusion regarding containers? Are we in the middle of a container war? Does anyone really know how to build a cloud native computing architecture? What does it mean to be cloud native?

The questions are many as we build a new computing paradigm for enterprises and service providers. With every answer we provide to the big challenges cloud operators and application developers face, three more are raised.


In this presentation, Chris Aniszczyk – COO of Cloud Native Computing Foundation and Executive Director of Open Container Initiative – will discuss the lessons we have learned with containers so far, including how Google (and quite a few other companies) have been developing and using containers to manage applications for over decade. His session will address the old world of node first development vs. the new world of cloud native computing; properties of a cloud native computing architecture – container packaged, dynamically managed and micro-services oriented – and the benefits it can provide developers, CIOs and end users. Attendees will hear examples of open source projects, like Fluentd and gRPC, that have strong commercial adoption, what to do with the containers once they are standardized, and different adoption paths a company can take to become cloud native.

MEF LSO: Connecting Open Source and Standards to Implement and Deliver Dynamic Third Network Services - Pascal Menezes, MEF

We are currently witnessing a major shift in the networking landscape which requires industry stakeholders to not only rapidly create specifications and code, but to also ensure that they avoid inadvertently forming new technological and operational silos that leave the market fragmented and unable to scale to meet the challenges of tomorrow. This session will be threefold and present how MEF innovates with its development model and how it interacts with other industry stakeholders.

Introduction to MEF and to MEF LSO -  SDNFV Service Orchestration (10 min) - Dan Pitt, Senior Vice President, MEF
MEF and TM Forum are collaborating with major service providers such as AT&T, Orange, Colt Technology Services, Comcast, Level 3, PCCW Global, Sparkle, Verizon, and CableLabs’ Kyrio in a transformational initiative to standardize Lifecycle Services Orchestration (LSO) application programming interfaces (APIs) for orchestrating connectivity services across multiple networks worldwide. This session will provide an introduction to the MEF LSO and its APIs.

Connecting Open Source & Standards -  A New Agile Development Model (20 min) - Pascal Menezes, CTO, MEF
MEF has adopted a more agile development model that involves realizing specifications in code more quickly, testing specifications out in reference implementations involving open and closed source solutions, and providing a feedback loop for further specification development.  MEF has created OpenLSO (Open Lifecycle Service Orchestration) and OpenCS (Open Connectivity Services) reference implementations and is working with prominent open source projects and member companies in order to maximize alignment of market implementations with MEF published and emerging LSO and connectivity services specs. In addition, the MEF LSO Hackathons bring together software developers and network experts for hands-on development of OpenLSO and OpenCS implementations.  This first part of the presentation will cover the different aspect of connecting Open Source and Standards.

The Orchestration Landscape: Open Source Projects & Specifications (20 min) - Rami Yaron VP, Strategy & Business Development, Telco Systems, Global Marketing Co-chair, MEF
This part of the presentation highlights how key industry SDOs and Open Source projects address major challenges in balancing the need to innovate and provide solutions quickly in their respective fields of expertise with the need to maximize interconnectivity and interchangeability of those solutions for service providers in the long term in a very complex and rapidly changing ecosystem. How can open APIs be developed that ensure commonality of underlying information models straddling different domains of expertise? How should companies deal with the use of different but rapidly evolving tools in different organizations? How to deal with releases from different Open Source projects and SDOs at different times? These are just some of the challenges being faced today which this presentation will discuss.
