This post is about how DevOps methodology is implemented in 5G network slices and service chains for active service assurance and monitoring by vendors like Intel, Netrounds, Rift.io, Arctos labs with the help of ETSI’s Open Source MANO (OSM).
Here's how open source is helping advance network optimization to support emerging technologies. There is a growing demand for efficient networks with low latency and high bandwidth to support innovations such as autonomous cars, connected devices, machine learning, augmented and virtual reality, and real-time analytics.
There are a significant amount of advantages of using container-based VNFs rather than hypervisor driven. But if we look at the current stage of NFV progress in NFV technology innovation was not much faster which were anticipated in 2012 due to lack of common guidelines model. But now, 5G networks are started to deploy and tested in
This article focuses on challenges related to common information models, VNF performance monitoring, benchmarking; analysis and tools. We will also discuss about evaluation & selection of VNF lifecycle management vendor of NFV environment and use of Virtual Probe (vProbe) function for NFVi monitoring.
This article explains how FPGAs can be useful in network functions virtualization (NFV) platform to achieve better performance and flexibility. FPGAs are used to speed up processing of network packets for variety of network functions/ applications like Intrusion detection, firewall, packet parsing, content based
This article covers what are containers and microservices; what are the use cases of containers and microservices in enterprises and telecommunication sectors and evaluation of usability of containers for IT infrastructure. Article also focuses on recent development of containers in network functions ..
This article is focused on basics of VNFs: what are virtual network functions (VNFs), architecture of virtual network functions (VNFs), what are the basic components (VNFC and VNF Descriptors (VNFD)), challenges with current VNF development and onboarding to NFV environment and how cloud native VNFs can help overcome the challenges.
Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) are vital technology innovations invented in last few years. Both of these technologies are collectively revolutionizing the current IT and telecom network infrastructure by enabling telco operators to make use of virtual machines in place of network equipment and further program the
One of the biggest mobile events of the year, Mobile World Congress is set to happen from Feb 26th 2018 to Mar 1st 2018 in Barcelona. The event will witness participation of more than 108,000 attendees, 2,300 exhibitors, 400 operator companies along with a representation of 208 countries as well. The primary focus of MWC this year is on 5G, AI, IoT,
I got the opportunity to attend the OpenStack summit in Boston. The summit was full of events mostly focused on OpenStack cloud, but many other things including NFV, Kubernetes, Containers, DevOps and approaches to pursuing multi-cloud approach. Many companies showcasing their products, platforms, software solutions were the highlights of the
