Senior Marketing Manager
|08.30||Enabling NFV with BGP VPN enabled Opendaylight Overlay|
|Technologies such as service chaining, MPLS encapsulation and BGP peering provide methods necessary for simplifying service deployment and migration of network critical software into the datacenter. Describing how these technologies have been combined to provide carrier class connectivity to next generation datacenter platforms, demonstrating the technologies using the OPNFV platform and OpenDaylight SDN controller.
François Lemarchand, Ericsson
|08.50||Openstack Neutron and BGP/MPLS Interconnections|
|Focusing on the work in progress in the Openstack community to augment Neutron with an API allowing the definition of interconnects between Neutron virtual networks and BGP-based VPNs outside or between datacenters. Giving a status on the work achieved in the past year in terms of defining a reference API, implementing a reference backend, "bagpipe", designed as a lightweight addition to Neutron reference drivers, and providing an update on where we stand with reference to SDN controller backends such as OpenDaylight, OpenContrail, and Nuage Networks.
Thomas Morin, Network & Software Engineer, Orange
|09.10||Addressing Network Challenges in OpenStack Cloud|
|Explaining the key limitations of, so called, “default” OpenStack networking. Those key limitations are: lack of routing as a core feature, lack of dynamic service insertion, no generic support of load-balancing. Discussing how to address those limitations using MPLS/BGP VPN technology implementing Neutron virtual networks. Showing how MPLS/BGP VPNs are applicable to 3GPP networks where IP services offered to wireless subscribers are inherently service chains of appliances.
Maria Napierala, AT&T Mobility
|09.30||Using Openstack for vCPE|
|Openstack is seen as the strategic cloud management system for the IT industry and some are using it as a Virtual Infrastructure Manager for NFV. BT has experimented with using Openstack as the VIM for Virtual Enteprise CPE or Distributed-NFV use cases and has identified several challenges that must be addressed. This presentation lists those challenges and makes a call to the Openstack community to address them.
Peter Willis, Chief Researcher, Data Networks, BT
|10.20||Enabling NFV and SDN with a Distributed Control Plane|
| The death of the distributed control plane at the hands of SDN has not come to fruition. In fact, the control plane is enabling the transition to NFV/SDN. This is happening in the WAN – where Segment Routing and PCE allow operators to deploy more advanced traffic engineering function – and in the Data Center where NFV is being powered by EVPN. Covering the latest status of the standards on which these technologies are based, and how they are becoming real, interoperable deployable technologies.
Charles Steadman, Networking Architect, Metaswitch Networks
|10.40||To NFV or not to NFV|
|Our networking industry has widened the set of tools we can use to build networks. One of them is NFV. The goal of this session is to provide a pragmatic analysis on where each of these tools are more suitable for (hardware/purpose built systems, NFV, virtualized technology, non virtualized technology), with the perspective of the challenges ahead.
Javier Antich, Director Product Management, Juniper Networks
|11.00||SDN Controlled VNF Forwarding Graphs PoC – Lessons Learned|
|Discussing the 2015 ETSI NFV-ONF sponsored proof-of-concept (POC) trial on SDN-Controlled VNF Forwarding Graphs conducted by nine vendors. Providing an overview of the use cases of VNF Forwarding Graphs – as outlined in the ETSI GS NFV 001 v1.1.1 (13-10) document, and of how SDN can be used to drive arbitrarily defined individual traffic flows through a series of virtual network functions (VNFs).
Linda Dunbar, Huawei
|11.20||“Open Source” or “Open” for NFV?|
|Service providers face key hurdles as they move beyond the PoC stage in NFV, including how to maximize service agility, minimize operational expenses and avoid vendor lock-in. While open source software is often presented as a panacea for these challenges, this session discusses whether “open solutions” are actually what is needed.
Charlie Ashton, Senior Director Business Development, Wind River
|11.40||Will Micro Services Model Change the way NFV is being Considered Today?|
|Microservices have recently evolved as a way to connect containers and to build a complex orchestration models. Discussing NFV and Microservices and sharing their experiences in that space.

Phil Tilley, Marketing Director, Cloud Solutions and Strategy,
|14.00||SDN NFV Services: a Platform Approach|
|Describing a platform covering orchestration, NFV and SDN layers, and based on integrated open-source and Cisco orchestration, NFV and SDN automation technology stack. Layers covered include orchestrated lifecycle management of network cloud services and devices, evaluation of virtual network designs, and NFV performance benchmarking for deterministic network SLAs.
Maciek Konstantynowicz, Distinguished Engineer. Cisco
|14.20||Providing Health Management to NFV|
|Highlighting the status of health management in NFV, and describing in more details few of the tools today in development. Introducing “Pinpoint” a Root Cause Analysis project as part of OPNFV , GOAM new OAM protocol as part of the LIME group and more.
Amit Navon, Director Network Research Product Management, Huawei
|14.40||Options for SLA-Grade Cloud-Bursting|
|Exploring how vCPE and virtualized instrumentation can be implemented using open standards to bring programmable SLA assurance to dynamic services. Case studies and live demonstrations show how various approaches can be employed to address the full service lifecycle.
Claude Robitaille, Chief Technology Officer, Accedian
|15.30||Service Assurance for SDN/NFV|
|Addressing how service providers will need to prepare in order to fully realize the business-transforming benefits of SDN/NFV. Though the benefits of virtualized networks are significant, Service Assurance is much more challenging and even more necessary than with traditional networks. Addressing these challenges and how a comprehensive Service Assurance solution for virtual networks will help providers successfully make the transformation to SDN/NFV.
Anand Gonuguntla, CEO and Co-founder, Centina Systems
|15.50||Bridging HA and ISSU Gaps for Production NFV Deployments|

|16.30||Orchestration Lessons Learned from an NFV Use Case of Virtual Customer Premises Equipment (vCPE)|
|Orchestration lessons learned from an NFV use case of virtual Customer Premises Equipment (vCPE) Focusing on considerations that operators have addressed in implementing multi-vendor services in an end-to-end NFV environment, including: Orchestrating a full service chaining of an end-to-end security service, including firewall, network connectivity and VPN creation; VNF on-boarding process and service fulfillment automation – performed in minutes instead of months; Enabling the enterprise to offer value-added services without the need for field-service technician visits; Allowing automated assurance/customer self-care options.
Dr. Eyal Felstaine, Vice President, Amdocs
|16.50||Do we Need a Standardized VNFM?|

Dr Erez Biton, Director of Technology and Standardization, CloudBand, Nokia
|17.10||How to Manage 5G Network Slices|
|Leveraging SDN and NFV to enable network slicing. 5G provides the potential to have several parallel logical networks on a common infrastructure. Automation, leading to autonomic networks, is the key to taming this complexity. Describing COMPA, Control-Orchestration-Management-Policy-Analytics providing a set of tools, and principles for approaching the network operations and control to enable such a vision and how it relates to application of Radio-Transport Interaction.
Stephen Terril, Ericsson
|17.30||Centurylink’s Programmable Services Backbone|

Recep Ozdag, PhD, Sr. Director of Marketing, Blue Planet Division, Ciena
|17.50||Service Orchestration Reloaded|
|Service orchestration reloaded The case for NFV adoption is not achieved by cost reduction alone. The ability to deploy new services and operating them flexibly will drive successful CSPs, but not unless we change the technology underneath. A different approach to modeling lays the foundation for turning OSS from a cost factor into the engine to drive revenue.
