A Telco Story of OpenStack Success

Telcos are flocking to OpenStack for it's NFV functionalities, ability to be deployed in modular POD architectures with federated deployments across datacenters, central offices & edge services. But to deploy something that can meet the business needs in the Telco world, there's alot of crucial design decisions that must be made. What's the right hardware? Which SDN and/or SDS option meets our performance needs? What topology delivers the right amount of High Availability? How can we make all of these decisions, yet make it cost effective? Come join us & hear our lessons learned deploying OpenStack at one of the large Telcos in Canada. We'll talk about topics such as L2/L3 stretching between OpenStack PODs, Service Provider integrations, identity federation, deployment automation, service function chaining & federated overlay networks. We'll share pitfalls & issues encountered along the way but more importantly, we'll tell you how we were able to overcome these hurdles so you can too!


What can I expect to learn?

Learn best practices and lessons learned from a real world OpenStack implementation at a large Telco. Participate in example architectural evaluation of multiple SDN solutions to address L2/L3 stretching between Openstack PODs, integration with Service Provider networks, service function chaining or federated overlay networks.

Managing large amount of hardware is definitely my cup of tea. I am definitely more of the yum/dnf guy then apt, but I have used both for quite some time.... FULL PROFILE
