Chairman
Loa Andersson, MPLS IETF WG Chairman

Loa Andersson is co-chair of the IETF MPLS-WG working group. He is Consulting Senior MPLS Expert at Huawei. He has been involved in MPLS standardization since the start and has contributed to key MPLS, L2VPN, L3VPN and GMPLS specifications.   Currently questions on low latency and deterministic networking has come into focus and Loa is contributing to that work.

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?

Asaf Peled,
Product Management Lead, Nokia

Asaf is a seasoned engineering professional focusing on Networking and Cloud architecture, with over 15 years of experience in the Telecommunications market, having held various positions at different Telco equipment vendors.  Asaf leads the product management team for Nokia's CloudBand Network Director, which addresses the NFVO piece in the MANO puzzle.

09.20
NFVi Software: Service Chaining & Assurance
Describing how NFVi software can also be the foundation on which to create additional value, by leveraging:
. Optimized service chaining up to the application level
. Service assurance based on detailed monitoring of virtualized traffic
. Efficient combinations of NFVi software at core and access locations
. Cutting-edge customization

Nicolas Bouthors,
CTO, Qosmos, a division of Enea

As CTO, Nicolas leads Qosmos' technology strategy, driving the company's initiatives in open and virtualized networks. He contributes to standards bodies such as ONF SDN, ETSI NFV and IETF SFC, and Open Source Projects centred around Network Virtualization.   Nicolas has spent over 20 years in the telecommunications and information systems field. Early in his career, he was instrumental in creating HP's OpenCall business. Then as the R&D manager of Inovatel, the advanced research organization of SFR, Nicolas led several innovative projects highlighting the impact of internet technologies on Mobile Operators.   Nicolas was also CTO and founder of Volubill (2001), a company building a Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) product for the Mobile Network Market. Volubill was a spinoff of the work he led as R&D Manager of Cegetel's Internet research lab.   Nicolas holds several patents relating to Mobile Data Charging. Nicolas has an engineering degree from the French schools Ecole Polytechnique and Les Mines de Paris.

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
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.

XiPeng Xiao, CTO Office, Huawei West Europe

Dr. XiPeng Xiao is Head of CTO Office for Huawei West Europe. Prior to Huawei, he spent many years in Silicon Valley and served as Marketing Director at Riverstone

11.10
SP Routing Innovation with Segment Routing, VXLAN and EVPN
Detailing some examples of how service providers are applying cloud networking principles to transform their Edge, Core and Data Center domains, with a particular focus on MPLS Segment Routing and VXLAN as the transport architecture. These transports, combined with BGP community and multi-protocol address family extensions, allow providers to realize a highly scalable, resilient and extensible network architecture.

Arthi Ayyangar,
Director, Product Management Customer Engineering, Arista
11.30 TEST & BENCHMARKING SESSION
11.30
An Operational Plan to Ensure Subscriber QoE
Examining what testing tools to use, how to implement them, and discussing the best practices required to ensure that operators deliver the best subscriber QoE possible.

Jim Gayton,
Principal Engineer, Exfo
11.50
Benchmarking Disaggregated Networks
Disaggregated networking provides significant economies of scale and the openness of architecture. Isn't it too good to be true? What will be the pros/cons and potential trade-off? Presenting the test results obtained from IP CLOS networks implemented in white boxes.
