This session will discuss considerations for setting up and using a site-to-site (network-to-network) VPN connection from your on-premise datacenter that is running OpenStack Juno to an off-premise private cloud environment, running on OpenStack Icehouse. Also we’ll describe the openstack control plane network traffic and discuss the traffic that flows across the VPN connection. We’ll also… Continue reading Network Connectivity in a Hybrid OpenStack Cloud
NFV becomes real with the migration of actual VNFs into the cloud. In this session, we will discuss the opportunities and added value in running a sample suite of applications – specifically EPC – on top on an NFV platform using Openstack. The inherent flexibility of NFV allows for operational efficiencies such as dynamic creation… Continue reading Running Real Telco Applications on Top of an NFV Platform – Opportunities and Challenges
Managed Services is a top use-case for which all global telcos want to improve operational efficiency and accelerate time-to-market. However, there are challenges in simplifying and automating end-to-end service delivery, including secure Day-0 provisioning of the customer premise devices, pervasive and secure connectivity to the data centers / POPs / COs, and elastic scaling and… Continue reading Delivering an end-to-end Automated and Carrier-class NFV (Network Functions Virtualization) Use Case
This session describes the moving parts of such a solution and why it is a viable alternative to the solutions that land in the vendor-proprietary camp.…Full session details here:
Interactive Intelligence, global provider of collaboration, communications and customer engagement software services, is deploying OpenStack with PLUMgrid SDN to build their cloud-based CaaS. Join Alex Smelik, Chief Architect of CaaS, for a deep dive on how they were able to accelerate onboarding of customers while streamlining workflow and operations for agility and efficiency.…Full session details… Continue reading Interactive Intelligence Presents Cloud-based Communications as a Service
Title: Cisco InterCloud Massively scalable Federated Networking using OpenStack Have you ever wondered how Cisco is building InterCloud fabric to support the future IoT? How Cisco InterCloud Fabric Network is getting built to expose the differentiated Network services through OpenStack?
Powerful open source platforms like OpenDaylight and OpenStack are creating opportunities for Carriers to drastically redefine network level intelligence and agility. This presentation will discuss how Carriers can harness these platforms in an SDN environment to create a multi-layer Cyber Defense Network. This Intelligent, learning network can defeat the nemesis of ever increasing applicat…Full session… Continue reading Leveraging the power of OpenDaylight and OpenStack for Cyber Defense Networks
As more OpenStack clouds move into production, the limits of scale and performance of the cloud need to be known as a pre-requisite to building a predictable operations plan. PLUMgrid ONS is based on a fully distributed architecture that is built for scale. Since forwarding decisions are distributed and made at each individual server, every… Continue reading Testing The Limits of Cloud Networks
