7 "Must-Haves" for Highly Effective Telco NFV Deployments

Red Hat and Juniper Networks will address 7 of the biggest challenges faced by Broadband NFV deployments

  1. Predictable high performance -  linearly scalable performance, low latency, hardware agnostic with acceleration, small  to jumbo frames
  2. High availability - No single point of failure, link bonding, redundancy, load balancing, failure detection, monitoring, live migration
  3. Superior L2 & L3 connectivity - Solid L2 networking, transition to L3 routing, external IPs, IPv6, carrier grade NAT
  4. Managed multi-tenancy - Isolation of north-south & east-west tenant networks; Manageable, scalable overlay tunnels
  5. Agile programmable infrastructure - Flexible datapath, integration with SDN controller, elastic network, auto-scaling
  6. Multi-site deployments - Geo-site deployments for better scale, redundancy and disaster recovery
  7. Distributed security - move security from edge to the application, distributed firewalls, connection tracking, L2 MACsec & L3 IPsec encrypted tunnels between endpoints

What can I expect to learn?

This presentation takes a deep dive into challenges faced by NFV Telco customers when moving to Openstack deployed virtualized solutions. Providing agile and scalable deployments with Openstack enables Telcos/ISPs to optimize usage of resources, deploy new services quickly and compete with higher value offerings

What will be covered?

  • Learn strategies and state of the art for deploying high performance VNFs with Openstack today
  • Red Hat and Juniper will address 7 of the biggest challenges faced by NFV deployments and why they are important to Telcos/ISPs
  • The presentation will have real world Telco/ISP deployment scenarios for the Broadband and SD-WAN usecase.  
  • It will cover issues  encountered along with workarounds and solutions provided which maybe still work in progress.
  • It will cover futuristic roadmap and requirements for Broadband NFV deployments for the next 2-3 years.
