Will you be at the Red Hat Summit in Boston? If so, be sure to attend our session on how Telco and NFV Cloud Service Providers can move from monolithic software architectures to cloud-native microservices.
Affirmed Networks’ James Logan, Director of Cloud Infrastructure Software and Technology will join Red Hat’s Anita Tragler and Marc Curry to shed light on this evolution, ranging from what a Cloud Native architecture consists of, to how CSP networks benefit from moving the virtualized VM based deployments to a mix of VMs, Containers in VMs and Containers on bare metal.
To meet the needs of 4G-LTE/5G, IoT and never-ending appetite of mobile applications, Telco 3GPP standards and Virtual Network Function vendors are driving “cloud native” deployments that are lightweight, scalable, and resilient. Moving NFV clouds to containers requires high performance container networking, multi-tenancy, container security, orchestration and integration.
Gaps in the Container ecosystem will have to be addressed for VNFs, including orchestration limitation, managed multi-tenancy, multi-interface, network security, high performance datapath, performance tuning.The session with Red Hat and Affirmed Networks will cover customer requirements for vEPC, vCPE, 5G NG-Core, vIMS, vGiLAN services, and , potentially, a demonstration of the vEPC on Red Hat OpenStack in Containers.
Please join Jim at the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center on Thursday, May 4, at 4:30 PM in Room 153A for session S103944 – “Are you being served? Containers, microservices and the cloud-native telco.”
