09.00 SERVICE ASSURANCE SESSION
09.00
Did you hear the Alarm? Assurance in NFV
Assurance seems like the most neglected part in many MANO interpretations and proposals of both vendors and service providers, yet it is critical to closed loop automations. How should Assurance be handled in this complex multi-domain environment?

09.40 FLEXETHERNET SESSION
09.40
Flexible Ethernet: Towards More Flexible and More Cost Effective Networks
Link aggregation groups don't always provide an efficient load sharing over the link members. Presenting how Flexible Ethernet (FlexE) technology will allow us to build more flexible and cost effective networks.

Stephane Litkowski, Network Architect, Orange

Stephane contributes to IETF where he is a co-chair of the BESS working group.

10.00
FlexE GMPLS Control Plane
Flex Etherenet (FlexE) was defined by OIF in 2016. FlexE makes it possible to reach very high and flexible bandwidth for Ethernet. Adding a GMPLS control plane to the link layer FlexE will make possible to chose links that has FlexE support when establishing e.g. when an MPLS LSP. This will give dynamic deterministic and un-infringeable for LSP that requires very high Quality of Service.

Coffee Break / Exhibition / Interop Event


10.50 VXLAN SESSION
10.50
New Metro Solution with VXLAN
Traditionally, metro solution for home broadband is based on Ethernet or MPLS. Both have limitations. To overcome these limitations, in recent years, operators have tried other alternatives like "seamless MPLS" or "moving BNG down". Proposing a new metro solution based on VXLAN, and discussing the pros and cons versus other alternatives. This solution is already adopted or being trailed by multiple operators.
