The Open Networking Summit (ONS) North America is here, and we hope you’ll join us next week, March 26-29 at the Intercontinental Los Angeles Downtown as we discuss software defined networking (SDN), secure devops, container networking, 5G infrastructure, and more. ONS brings together enterprises, service providers and cloud providers to discuss the future of open source networking, covering topics like SDN, network functions virtualization (NFV), orchestration and cloud automation, and the internet of things (IoT).
Red Hat’s VP and CTO Chris Wright will be participating in a keynote panel entitled “SDN@10” with Nick McKeown, professor of electrical engineering and computer science at Stanford University and Guru Parulkar, executive director for ON.Lab/ONF, and moderated by Wendy Cartee, cloud-native applications marketing at VMware. The panel will be held Thursday, March 29 from 9:25am – 9:55am in the Wilshire Grand Ballroom.
In addition to the keynote, Red Hat will be presenting three other sessions on Wednesday, March 28:
Secure DevOps presented by Luke Hinds, senior principal software engineer at Red Hat
Wednesday, March 28 • 11:15am – 12:05pm in Hollywood Ballroom II
As with any powerful tool set, there are inherent risks around security. This talk will explore some recent attacks and what we can learn from these attacks. It will also include clear examples of common risks and how to remediate those risks and improve the security posture of a user’s CI / CD environment. Included in this will be an overview of the tool ‘anteater’ – a security audit tool we have developed in OPNFV release engineering.
State of Container Networking: Where Are We and Where are We Going? presented by Frederick F. Kautz IV, principal software engineer at Red Hat and Faseela K., technical lead with Ericsson
Wednesday, March 28 • 12:15pm – 1:05pm in the Wilshire Grand Ballroom I
In this talk, presenters will discuss the current state of container networking including recent development and future trends, describing recent developments, why they are important, and providing insight into how they may be leveraged to solve connectivity and performance problems. They will also discuss recent changes and patterns in orchestration and container networking that impact container networking such service meshes.
Building an Infrastructure for 5G presented by Azhar Sayeed, chief architect from Red Hat
Wednesday, March 28 • 2:30pm – 3:20pm in Hancock Park
To address VRAN and MEC requirements how will the virtualization models need to evolve? Will OpenStack, today’s IaaS platform be able to address all the requirements of MEC and VRAN? This presentation will explore answers to questions like these, propose some infrastructure virtualization models for deployment of MEC and VRAN for 5G, discuss the architecture of VRAN and 5G deployment, and explore the deployment of Virtual Machines and Containers to host services for MEC and VRAN.
We hope to see you at next week’s ONS event to delve into these topics and more!
