Cloudify Events & Awards Highlight Technological Vision for Edge Orchestration

Cloudify to showcase innovative network orchestration for Edge & IoT, Kubernetes, NFV transformation and more at leading industry events.

THE HAGUE, Netherlands (PRWEB) October 08, 2018

As leading telcos & enterprises globally choose open orchestration for network transformation and Network Functions Virtualization (NFV), Cloudify, AT&T Labs, Proximus, and Datavision Inc. will demonstrate full-lifecycle network management and orchestration of edge, Kubernetes, and NFV telco cloud deployments at leading industry events.

SDN & NFV World Congress | 8-12 October 2018, World Forum, The Hague, Netherlands

Talks:
NetOps – the Key to Declarative Network Automation, Sebastian Grabski, Cloudify
Intel® Network Builders Summit | Monday, October 8 • 16:10 – 16:30
Network automation is not easy. The promise of SDN is fulfilled with better or worse success, requiring in most of the cases “rip & replace” approach. In order to be successful in network automation we need to apply the strategy which will consider existing installed base and new things which are coming now like NFV or will come in a future.

NETWORK EDGE FORUM (YANGTZE 1&2) | Monday, October 11 • 14:50 – 15:10

Edge computing is becoming the major component in 5G networks. While edge computing provides an u-low-latency solution, it brings with it other challenges. On one hand, edge clouds are small, and their computing resources are scarce. On the other hand, they are required to serve many applications, such as the 5G edge ecosystem, live video streaming and IoT. The edge gives the opportunity for vendors to deploy their own software. However, this needs to be done in an agile manner. With the proliferation of IoT devices and Autonomous cars of different brands, the industry cannot afford countless years and M$ integration projects. In this session, we will show how we meet these challenges using ONAP, Cloudify, Akraino and other open source projects. We will show a real use case of the full ML-driven life cycle management of applications running on an edge cloud using serverless technology.

NETWORK EDGE FORUM (YANGTZE 1&2) | Monday, October 11 • 15:10 – 15:40

Network edge is undergoing massive transformation, and most telco digital transformation drives include one or more project related to the network edge. What are best practices, experiences so far, and new solutions that operators and other network users can implement to extract the most value, and reduce the costs of operation in the network edge domain?

Award Nominations: 2018 NETWORK TRANSFORMATION AWARDS – THE SHORTLIST
Best Network Edge
AT&T Labs – Edgility: Serverless Edge
AT&T and Cloudify have developed a revolutionary serverless edge technology for consumers and businesses in the areas of autonomous vehicles, augmented and virtual reality, HTTP Live Streaming, and more. Edgility, with the combination of open source technologies including ONAP, Kubernetes, Akraino, and Cloudify as the master orchestrator, solves all of the problems in edge technology today, from scarce resources and physical space to network connectivity and automated scaling and healing.

With Edgility’s innovative combination, 5G edge use cases can be brought to market faster, reduce CAPEX and OPEX, and ensure future proofing due to its open source nature.

Best New Automation & Management
Cloudify – Telco Cloud Transformation

Cloudify was chosen by Proximus, Belgium’s largest telecom company, for their Telco Cloud project which is transforming their legacy hardware-based network by making it virtualized, software-driven, and cloud native, thereby making it cheaper, easier, and more flexible. With Cloudify’s cloud native NFV management and orchestration platform, Proximus seamlessly connects their OpenStack VIM cloud with their VMware OSS cloud, acting as Domain Orchestrator, general purpose VNFM, and NFVO simultaneously.
