Intel- Match making: NFV and OpenStack Interfaces and Information Models
One of the exciting use cases for OpenStack, is NFV as proposed by European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and promoted by the whole Telco industry. The published documents from the ETSI-NFV phase 1 activity contain an informative set of interfaces and information models for NFV. As OpenStack’s origins are more closely aligned with Cloud and there are different sets of information models leveraged in Cloud and Telco, it is probably not surprising to learn that the interface and information model mapping to NFV is not straight forward. However Policy is needed for both communities and both want to make good use of OpenStack.

IBM- It’s getting HOT in here: Turning up the HEAT with IBM MobileFirst for iOS apps
The landmark partnership between IBM and Apple announced last year set the internet abuzz. The partnership aims to spark true mobile-led business change across the 
enterprise. In this talk, we’ll show you how IBM is using OpenStack, Heat, and DevOps to 
deploy a truly monumental undertaking.   
To fulfill this goal, we needed to redefine how we deliver our software. Leveraging IBM’s unique expertise in OpenStack and DevOps, we turned the “art of the possible” into our new “reality”. In this talk, we’ll tell the story of how we used fullstack application patterns based on OpenStack Heat to provision environments with speed and reliability. You will hear directly from the joint development team how these patterns enabled us to collaborate unimpeded by the traditional road blocks of IT development. As it turns out, our goal to “spark true business change” has 
extended beyond our customers to include IBM itself. 
You will not only hear about the technical solution but see it in action with a demo in the session.

EMC -Operating at Web-scale: Will Containers Crush the OpenStack Ecosystem?
The average enterprise doesn’t believe it needs to be “web-scale”, yet enterprises are rapidly adopting technologies directly from web-scale players like Hadoop and Cassandra. The OpenStack ecosystem promises to help coalesce and deliver these types of technologies to the enterprise in such a way that they are more easily consumable and can drive IT transformation. By comparison, adjacent web-scale ecosystems like Docker are moving faster than OpenStack and enjoying greater adoption. Why is this? Can OpenStack play nice? How do containers factor in web-scale systems? Are OpenStack adopters looking at these ecosystems as adversarial or complementary? Our panel will include: someone who has deployed containers at massive scale (10s of thousands of physical servers) without OpenStack, an active production container user running them on top of OpenStack, and an active OpenStack production user who is currently evaluating the feasibility of adopting containers with or without OpenStack.

HP- Carrier-Grade Solution for Dynamic Service Function Chaining Using OpenDaylight
Subscriber awareness is not a new concept but providing subscriber-level information to every function in a network has been difficult to implement in traditional networks. However, NFV/SDN framework has made it possible to obtain this information more easily. Subscriber awareness in the network layer interconnecting virtual network elements benefits operators by:


  • Providing unprecedented visibility into the network across elements interconnected using the SDN fabric

  • Enabling delivery of personalized services by leveraging functions in the network

  • Improving security and diagnostics by identifying and isolating subscriber flows as needed


To understand these benefits it is essential to look at this in a context of particular use cases. Subscriber awareness for service function chaining (SFC) refers to the ability to associate traffic with a customer while making appropriate, traffic-related networking decisions. SFC has gained a lot of interest due to network virtualization and it addresses networking challenges created when middle-boxes like firewalls, spam filters, DPI elements, etc., are virtualized.

An important example of SFC in operator networks is the Virtual SGi/Gi-LAN use case. SGi/Gi interface connects the mobile packet core and packet data networks (PDN) which are typically implemented on racks in middle-boxes, which can be hard to manage, update and modify. SFC with subscriber awareness creates a programmable Gi-LAN by:


  • Dynamically allocating network resources on a per subscriber/user basis

  • Automatically provisioning traffic forwarding path through the service chain

  • Supporting elasticity of functions

  • Providing capabilities, such as load balancing, high availability, and monitoring, eliminate the need for these functions duplicated in each VNF


This session will dive deeper into how OpenDaylight-based SFC is a carrier-grade solution and can provide these benefits to the mobile operators.
