Andrew G. Malis,
BroadBand Forum Distinguished Fellow
09.00 Telemetry Session
Visibility and all in between: Can we Dream about a Self-healing Network?
Presenting an overview of different ways to get more visibility into the data center network. In-band telemetry , traditional packet monitoring tools and unique switch capabilities are generating data. Covering the different network components in the data center from the switch ASIC to software up to the management tools

Avi Alkobi,
Technical Director, Mellanox

Avi Alkobi is a technical director for EMEA in Mellanox Technologies. For the past 10 years he has worked at Mellanox in various roles focusing on the Ethernet switch product line, first as a SW developer, then as a team leader of the infrastructure team responsible for the first Ethernet switch management infrastructure. More recently, he has worked as a senior application engineer supporting the field on post sales, pre sales and complex proof of concepts for E2E Ethernet and InfiniBand solutions.   Before coming to Mellanox, he worked for five years at Comverse Technology and prior to this, in the Israeli security industry. Avi holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science and M.B.A from the Bar-Ilan University in Israel.

Towards a Network Telemetry Framework for 5G Transport Network Automation
Explaining the necessity of an architectural framework for network telemetry in order to meet the current and future network operation requirements. Introducing some new technologies and protocol proposals for the data plane telemetry and the control plane telemetry.

He received his doctoral degree in computer engineering from Washington University in St. Louis.

OBS Journey to Telemetry
Data-model driven telemetry is a push-based mechanism that removes the inefficiencies associated with polling like SNMP. The telemetry data is described using a structured data modelling language, encoded in JSON or Google Protocol Buffers then it's streamed over TCP, UDP or gRPC. Covering the different protocols, the IP/MPLS network operational challenges and how telemetry can help. Ending with OBS use cases.

Youssef El Fathi, Network Engineer, Orange
Telemetry Collection and Transport: Challenges and Solutions
Both telemetry data and telemetry protocols can be classified by many parameters including the scope, scope of insight the data provides, and the extent the protocol operates. Demonstrating how each approach, each method has its challenges that must be addressed.
