5 Biggest Issues in Edge Computing - Xuan Jia, China Mobile
There are so many issues in edge computing, Akraino or OpenStack Edge Computing WG or OPNFV Edge project can list a lot of issues,but they are far away from edge computing product. In this session, i will introduce the mainly issues when we doing edge computing experimental test in 4G and 5G MEC in China Mobile. These issues must be solved in short time.

We did edge CDN and edge AI application tests in ZheJiang Province. It takes a long time to deploy CDN and AI application in edge platform, although edge platform provides very stable virtual machine.
These 5 biggest issues list as below:
1. Public IP issues.
2. 5G UPF issues : Edge platform notify UPF or DGW to set some configure which is related with edge application.
3. Electric power in edge computing data center
4. DNS issues.
5. Application management and deployment.

Your Path to Edge Computing - Akraino Edge Stack - Tina Tsou, Arm
With the emergence of new technologies such as 5G, AR/VR, autonomous cars, and IoT, data is being produced at the user end of the network. These use cases demand real-time processing and communication between distributed endpoints, creating the need for efficient processing at the network edge using “Edge Computing”.

The Akraino Edge Stack is a LF Edge project that addresses the technology gaps and creating open source software for edge.

Akraino Edge Stack “blueprints” delivers end to end solution for a particular Edge use case, which is complete, tested, production deployable. Akraino Integrates multiple Opensource together to deliver the blueprints.

In this talk, we will share:
1. Edge Use Cases for Akraino and its blueprints, especially for containerized networking.
2. Varieties of Blueprints Akraino Community is developing.
3. How to engage and contribute to the Akraino Community

Edge Lightweight and IoT (ELIOT): To Make Edge Stack Easy to Manage and Scale - Yang (Gabriel) Yu & Khemendra Kumar, Huawei
Lightweighted edge is essential for IoT and cloud. It assembles both hardware and software stacks together to reduce the redundancy of the system to the minimum while ensuring that the system behaves as expected by serving millions or billions of services.
To this end, the system needs to be carefully designed and optimized. ELIOT is proposed in Akraino community to deliver open source lightweight edge solution based on Kubernetes, lightweight OS, ARM board, etc. It shows in the first release how to build an MVP lightweight edge stack and how to enable continuous delivery of APP based on it. It is also discussed how this project evolves and to collaborates with upstream edge projects.

ONAP (Open Network Automation Platform) Introduction and Use Case Deep Dive - Ben Yang, Huawei
The session will give high level introduction on ONAP project, explain the design principles behind this platform, like model-driven and close-loop, and the architecture and projects. Also will give a deep dive on how to automate business connectivity service in CCVPN use case and next broadband service on BBS use case. In this two use case, Huawei provided commercial network products and contributed the major code.
Currently the ONAP community is very carrier focused and the developer team is not big enough. The reason to bring the session to LC3 is to promote ONAP to a wide potential user specially cloud players, and to build developer ecosystem in china.
The session will be presented in Chinese.

Flow-based Packet Processing Framework on DPDK and VPP - Hongjun Ni, Intel
Traditionally, many networking data plane processing is based on packets, which leads to some real issues:
not sharing states, not guaranteeing packets order, etc.
This talk will introduce a flow-based packet processing framework based on DPDK and VPP.
It shows high performance, guarantees packet order, shares state among features and keeps flexibility.
It can be applied on 5G and SD-WAN cases.
It contains below key elements:
1) Implement a centralized and generalized flow infrastructure.
2) Implement a Hardware flow offloading feature in NIC, improving performance of classifying flows.
3) Implement a Software flow mechanism when configured flow entries exceed the limit of Hardware NIC.
4) Support Bridge-domain Aware and VRF Aware flow processing.
5) Support Policy-based Routing, and Tunnel Offloading Processing.
6) Support One flow maps to many NICs, and one NIC contains many flows.

Spider - A Practical Journey of China Unicom’s Container Cloud Platform Network Redesign - 超胜 向, China Unicom & Sam Chen, Mesosphere
China Unicom’s Spider solution supports heterogeneous deployment that can be deployed across physical server, virtual machine, private cloud and public cloud.

Spider supports multi-tenancy which can help realize network isolation for different business units and provides multiple ways of pod-to-pod network connection. Spider provides standardized IPAM interface which cannot only guarantee each container is assigned to a unique IP but also can support fine granularity subnet management, IP allocation and recycle. It also supports rich network policy that user can realize network isolation and limit network speed by setting these policies. The user can also adjust the policy at any time based on the requirements of the container’s communication or network speed. Spider supports both CNM and CNI, and is able to seamlessly integrate with mainstream container orchestration platform.
