Implementing vCPE with OpenStack and Software Defined Networks

Service providers and the broader vendor community have made progress in virtualizing key vCPE network functions. Concurrently, there is a strong push to bring these functions to the cloud. This session will discuss how Openstack is enabling this transformation and the role played by technologies like SDN and NFV. It will also discuss the latest advances in the networking stack of the Linux kernel which further enable these network functions to run in a fully distributed architecture. Finally, it will tie all these concepts together proposing a model for implementing virtual CPE services.



The Telecom/NFV track is brought to you by OpenStack and OPNFV.

What can I expect to learn?

In this session we will share experiences of deploying a virtual network infrastructure that supports the vCPE use case, design best practices, monitoring and troubleshooting and we will conclude with a demo.
