Exhibitors

We will demonstrate the features based on a couple of deployment scenarios. We will start with a simple network filter running as a VNF on OpenStack and go through a basic demonstration on replacing it with a Kubernetes pod. Then we will show the advantages of combining VNFs and CNFs with a mixed load-balanced multipath service chain and finish with a full on-line replacement scenario  of the VNF with a CNF while synchronizing state and assuring the continuity of traffic.

At ONF Connect,  we’ll be showcasing various demos which include an updated OMEC code base that has been operationally tested by T-Mobile Poland. All requirements for SGX Secure billing, control plane and data plane have been successfully tested inside an operational network. It is more secure, performant and has a Control and User Plane Separated (CUPS) architecture including 3GPP based implementation of EPC Service and Packet Gateway functions (SGW, PGW) for realization in an operational telecom network running on Intel® Xeon® servers.

Next Gen SDN Switch OS: Stratum

Unleashing the Full Potential of SDN

Stratum, the thin switch production-ready OS, is a key component of the next gen open SDN software stack that will deliver operator-desired properties – end-to-end programmability, hardware independence, zero-touch operation & verifiability. Stratum is now available on Barefoot Tofino and Broadcom Tomahawk-based platforms. This year at ONF Connect, we are demonstrating interoperability between select Stratum platforms using ONOS 2.2. Come see a fully P4 enabled, SDN controlled fabric!

Enabling Next Gen SDN: µONOS

Control and Configuration Platform

Get the first glimpse of µONOS, the SDN control and configuration platform for the Next Gen SDN software stack. µONOS builds on ONF’s popular ONOS SDN controller. It is re-factored as a set of micro-services to make it optimal for edge application and adds new advanced capabilities. The µONOS PoC will demonstrate zero-touch provisioning and new configuration capabilities of the platform using gNMI, gNOI and OpenConfig YANG models.

Software-Defined RAN

Controlled by ONOS

This showcase will demonstrate the strength of ONOS, as a powerful SDN control platform for RAN programmability. Using an emulated environment of many eNBs and mobile UEs, the showcase will highlight:

  • ASN.1 over SCTP as the initial working southbound for RAN control and periodic network state information transfer
  • Dynamic RAN network state maintenance with ONOS
  • Abstracted exposure of this network state to RAN applications
  • Handover application as a working example
