The Must-Attend

Open Infrastructure Event

The open infrastructure landscape is changing, and so is the Summit. Now that users are integrating dozens of open source tools into a modern stack that reaches well beyond the scope of OpenStack, we’re re-organizing the event to focus on specific problem domains like container infrastructure, edge computing and CI/CD and we are focusing on the hard work of integrating all of these tools developed in disparate communities. This is the essential work of 2018 and beyond, to ensure that open infrastructure is truly a viable path for operators.

OpenStack:The Perfect Virtual Infrastructure Manager (VIM) for a Virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC)

Virtualizing core services to reduce costs and increase efficiency is a priority for the Telecommunications Industry. A great example of this trend is the virtualization of the Evolved Packet Core (EPC), a key component that provides voice and data on 4G Long-Term Evolution (LTE) networks.

This presentation will address with real life examples and architectures why OpenStack is the perfect Virtual Infrastructure Manager for this use case. We will also answer the following questions:

  • How OpenStack fits within the ETSI NFV Reference Architecture
  • The use case for Virtual Evolved Packet Core (vEPC)
  • Why OpenStack
  • Architecture and design of a vEPC deployment on OpenStack to meet provider’s scale and performance requirements
  • Considerations and best practices

This session is best suited for Telco operators and OpenStack and Cloud administrators that want to get exposure to real life vEPC deployments, their use case, and architectures.
