Open networking is certainly the future!

Light Sabre

Many thanks for a great presentation and discusion.

Light Beer

Poll question answer: very important I believe.

Light Beer

Answer to bonus question: I believe a Cloud, analytics platforms and internet

Light Beer

I guess service agility first. And reduced costs in long term.

Light Beer

Test question answer: swimming is my fav. olympics sport :)

Light Beer

Hello from Sweden!

Light Beer

reduced cost

 

Light Beer

very important

 

Light Beer

I'm excited to see the momentum of CORD and open networking.

Light Beer

thank you for the invite!

Light Beer

somewhat important

Light Beer

@Guru: Thanks for answering my question!

Isn't vendor lock-in really just a FUD term, though?

Light Sabre

Thanks all! What a great class @Guru and @Larry. I learned a lot, that's for sure.

Thanks Kelsey!

 

Light Beer

Thanks @Guru and @Larry for the excellent presentation today, for addressing our many questions, and for a great slide deck as well! Listeners - excellent questions today and thanks for your responses to the bonus question, I'm enjoying this discussion! We'll see you back here next Wednesday for the start of our Open Source series with OpenDaylight on Telcos & Open Source 101

Blogger

Good question about density and performance one can get with proprietary boxes vs open. We are starting to see some amazing merchant silicon from chip vendors and more and more OEM vendors are using those silicon anyway. Still there is a trade off -- proprietary solution that offers some advantages over open solution with no vendor-lock in. We think for the infrastrucure, service providers willing to give up that extra edge with proprietary for openness and white boxes. 

Blogger

@John: Indeed, this is the point that many people often miss in the security vs. accessibility debate.

Reliability is a balancing of those two interests.

Light Sabre

About reliability, XaaS means getting your high-availability using best-practices in elastic cloud services -- from SW instead of HW! As for developing regions, the low-cost nature of CORD is exactly what companies like Google ane Facebook are looking for as a platform for delivering access services to the next billion.

 

Light Beer

Further reply to bonus question: Perhaps it is too obvious, but the internet backbone of everything as a service needs to be reliable, otherwise it all goes out the window, which means XaaS will be hard to implement in developing regions.

Light Beer

(Yay!  Thanks for asking/re-posting my question, Kelsey!)

Light Sabre

Ooops. I meant we are NOT focusin on class 5 switches. 

 

Blogger

@Guru/Larry: Another listener q: 

If you go with an entirely open infrastructure, how do you mitigate the performance and port-density issues at the center of the datacenter core that proprietary boxes have traditionally been best suited for?

Blogger

We are focusing on legacy class 5 switches as much... We believe they have been already replaced with softswtiches and CORD will definitely integrate softswithces well. I must admit I am not as familiar with state of class 5 swithes in today's network and providers are not asking us for that. 

Blogger

About security, a lot of people talk about micro-services. What XaaS gives you beyond a micro-services architecture is a separable service control plane, which is where we enforce the operator's security policy.

 

Light Beer

@John: Excellent point.  It's difficult; that's for sure!  I believe it can certainly be reasonably secure -- and certainly more secure than cloud and IoT solutions are today, in general.

Light Sabre

Great presentation. Was thinking that any transition costs could be mitigated via colocation or other business model.

Light Beer

Thank you very much

Light Beer

Eh, technically speaking, security isn't strictly "essential" either (though highly desirable).  Security and accessibility are the archnemeses of each other.  Perfect security means complete inaccessibility, and perfect accessibility means complete insecurity.  Accessibility of some non-zero degree is vital (and the whole reason we're talking about this subject to begin with -- because these technologies and platforms and standards help enable accessibility) for what we are talking about.  Security, strictly speaking, is not.

But that said, from a practical perspective, yes, it should be secure -- just as every technological solution should be secure.

Light Sabre

While CORD has focused initially on today's established business units (Enterprise, Residential, Mobile), it's the opportunity to do more in the IoT, Virtual Reality, gaming, etc. spaces that's most exciting.

 

Light Beer

IOT is one of the use cases of M-CORD and we are exploring connectionless in that context. 

And look at Analytics for CORD (A-CORD) -- where we are trying to enable closed loop control with programmabile proboes, monitoring as a service and anlytics based control. 

 

Blogger

Reply to "bonus" question: Certainly security is important, but I wonder if "everything as a service" can be secure.

Light Beer

About billing end users -- alwasy important -- one of the things CORD enables is a pretty powerful "self help" portal, where users can opt into (and out of) services dynamically. Having a LAN party... dial up the bandwidth and maybe even spin up an on-demand virtual network. (Certainly the latter will happen fairly soon for enterprises.)

 

Light Beer

I disagree with those saying that virtualization techs are "essential" to "everything-as-a-service."

"Everything-as-a-service" necessarily implies IoT -- and the sensors and other IoT devices are too small at this point to be able to virtualize or to make it worth deploying virtualization.  (Sure, you can virtualize the cloud itself, but that is not strictly vital for what we're talking about here.  Cloud is essential to XaaS, IoT is essential to "EaaS", and big-data analytics is essential to IoT.  Q.E.D.)

Light Sabre

1) Support heterogeneous delivery (OS, container, legacy appliance-based)

2) Secure

3) High visibility for analytics and assurance

Light Beer

@Guru/Larry - a lot of listener questions coming in! Here's one for you: 

how do we have legacy class 5 switches migrated to CORD?

Blogger
 
Some carriers are looking at using DWDM for CO to CO communication or for large service providers or enterprises using it, because ONOS is a distributed fabric they have been successful in building optical bypass portions with YANG models, TL1 or OF 1.3.1 using the optical experimental fields.

Light Beer

thanks good info

Light Beer

This was a very clear and understandable presentation of the CORD concepts.  Thank you Larry and Guru.

Light Beer

It was a great session, thanks a lot to all of you.

Light Sabre

i agree: internet access, IOT, and data analytics

Light Beer

Great information

Light Beer

Cloud is the first one, then Internet Over Things and BIG Data  analytics.

Light Beer

thank you for an excellent lecture.

 

Light Beer

willingness to colloborate - looking to help all vs just their own objectives - ability to scale

Light Beer

About taking control back from cloud operators, I think CORD puts the conventional operators back in the game, but everyone wins. It's likely some (perhaps many?) of the functions loaded into CORD will come from Facebook, Google, etc.

 

Light Beer

Cloud, Data Plane, Control Plane

Light Beer

I will say CORD will help services take off... And yes that requires a control plane that makes it easy to plug-in services and manage them.

Blogger

BONUS question! What are three essential ingredients needed to build an XaaS (Everything as a Service) paradigm?  

Blogger

@John: The "bonus question" was asking what the "three essential ingredients" are for an "everything-as-a-service paradigm".

Light Sabre

Cloud, SDN, NFV

Light Beer

Thanks, all.  Great discussion

Light Beer

Can you repeat that question?

Light Beer

Thank you! Great job!

 

Light Beer

Thanks for the excellent presentation

Light Beer

ingredients: security, analytics, open source

Lightning

Thank you.  Very interesting.

 

Light Beer

Light Beer

how do we have legacy class 5 switches migrated to this cord ?

Light Beer

seperation between data and control plains and white box hardware

Thanks Larry and Guru

Light Beer

Guru and Larry -- Thanks for a great presentation!

Light Beer

Great presentation

Light Beer

What was the "bonus" question again?

Light Beer

Good Onboarding program, Governance, Scale.

Light Beer

3 essential ingredients:

1) Cloud.  (Duh.)
2) IoT.
3) Big data analytics.

Light Sabre

Thank you for the presentation

Light Beer

Thank you Guru and Larry.

Light Beer

Light Sabre

Great job! (and very nice slides as well)

Light Beer

Thank you! Very interesting!

Light Beer

It's been fun. Thanks.

 

Light Beer

distance running

Light Beer

Yes important to coordinate with RAN vendors and we are. If you see the list of partenrs and collaborators you will see RAN vendors. 

 

Blogger

Tks Guru, and larry.

Light Beer

Does CORD bring control back to the service provider from the cloud operators?

 

Light Beer

In other words, CORD can help the control plane take off.

...

I'll see myself out.

Light Sabre

Acces (GPON, vOLT, etc) has been mentioned in this CORD presentation.  Has transport (i.e. DWM) been considered for CORD implimentation?

 

 

Light Beer

@Joe Stanganelli: Agreed

Light Beer

Are disaggregated data-plane parts of OLT and BNG "off-the-shelf" and standardized? 

Light Beer

Very interesting

Light Beer

@Business82603

Right now the PMC-Sierra PAS5211 GPON SoC for OLT communicates to the vOLT Agent using indigo, netconfd, the proprietary APIs for the PMC silicon and an OMCI stack.

 

Light Beer

Do the southbound hide all protocol-specific data and diagnostics (like PLOAM and OMCI in GPON), or are they exposed to NFV developers? 

Blogger

how far is Cord from actual commercial deployment

Blogger

with the feature creation and scalability enhancements what would be the triggers to bill the end users?

 

Light Beer

@dfperson: And more savings on top of that!

Light Sabre

Central offices are typically considered highly secure.  How does CORD emphasize security against the growing threat of attacks against Internet infrastructure?

 

Light Beer

How important is it to coordinate CORD efforts with exiswting RAN vendors?

Light Beer

i see the co moving from 48V DC to computer flooring, ac power, etc

 

Light Beer

Question: What about O&M? Does the vOLT integrate with existing provisioning and operations systems? Or is there another O&M required?

Light Beer

The transition costs are one-time. If they have an acceptable return on investment, then it probably won't matter too much what the initial level is, if it's reasonable to expect an acceptable ROI on the investment (and the credit or the internal funds are available).

Light Beer

ALL i can say  that this topic is very interesting, and I would like to see more of it

 

Blogger

Less trucks mean less liability and savings on insurance too

Light Beer

This class will be archived and available 24/7 right after the live class ends.

Lightning

Great info. Could you send out a recording.

Light Beer

Question: Most OLT/ONT GPON soltuions are mostly proprietary interfaces based on common standards. Is there a special integration or restricted set of ONTs that can be connected to the vOLT?

Light Beer

Indeed, it's not just about costs.  It's about savings.

And, on top of savings, you can add active value on top of that.

Light Sabre

Do u have a refernce VolT implementation that can be used

 

Light Beer

Service agility directly affects cost, so service agility.

 

Light Beer

@Faisal - Ciena acquired BluePlanet, which gave them a commercial ONOS Controller distribution.

Light Beer

How do you distribute the CORD functionality between the CO?

Light Beer

mobile slides here should be updated to either represent SGW as SAEGW, or to add PGW. SGW->CDN communication can't happen.

Light Beer

two go hand-in-hand

Light Beer

Can you share with us the most discussed solution in opposition to the CORD approach? Is there a competing viewpoint?

Light Beer

In a contantly evolving ecosystem, how do the operators make a full service transition and still expect same service levels are with traditional approach?

Light Beer

what is Ciena role, Ciena is an optical company but does not have OLT or Router etc

Blogger

How costly is the new Architecture /Cord in the CO?

 

Light Beer

how do we have legacy class 5 switches migrated to this cord ?

Light Beer

How is the realiability and 5 9's availabiloty aspect handled in the software? TYradiitional hardwares haven been more realiable.

Light Beer

@Faisal: I am of the impression (speakers, inter alia, correct me if I'm wrong) that CORD is but a virtualization platform that uses NFV.

Light Sabre

Assuming the providers and owners of the Cental Offices all get on board - what is your best guess at when 1) implementation at the first CO would happen and 2) 100% implementation across the US---i.e. 20 years? 5years?

Light Beer

If a Service Provider wants to use CORD but wants to maintain some services on their old model, can both operate side by side in the new Datacenter?

Light Beer

How is CORD different than NFV. What I am seeing is all what NFV promises, commodity servers, virtualization etc....i dont see any difference

Blogger

@Guru - what if i want to use ODL instead of ONOS? or FD.io? or OSM instead of XOS? What about a combination of Openflow, NetConf, REST (less likely), BGP-LU/BGP-LS, etc? 

Light Beer

Service agility is the main driver

 

Light Beer

Can CORD be adopted as a Core Network implementation? Or pretty much limited to Access side?

Light Beer

Listener poll: What's the biggest long-term benefit of CORD? Reduced cost, service agility, or do the two go hand-in-hand?

Blogger

Question:  Is the Open Networking Lab related to ONF, Open Networking Foundation?

Light Beer

Is CORD model applicable to cable operators?

Light Beer

Is OnLab partnering with any groups like OPNFV or ONOS or are their any partnerships in its future?  

Lightning

hand in hand

 

Light Beer

Where is the QoS in this picture. Per se QoS can't be virtualized, since it has to be performed at particular physical point within data path. This fact interracts with the wirtualization somewhere in the "cloud".

Light Beer

Open source has flexibility and accessibility, and I'm guessing cost savings. However, I can see how open-source central offices will commoditize the industry, and drive the most efficient providers into dominance of the industry.

Light Beer

Service agility

Light Sabre

That said, my instinct says agility.

But I'd want to think about this some more.

Light Sabre

go hand in hand

Light Beer

Reduced cost and service agility -- the two go hand-in-hand.

Light Beer

hand in hand

 

Light Beer

service agility 

 

Light Beer

go hand in hand

Light Beer

Light Beer

This will not reduce costs so long term busines agility would be the main benefit

 

Light Beer
The two go hand and hand
Light Beer

the 2 go hand-in-hand

Light Beer

Reply to second poll: Biggest long-term benefit of CORD is both (the two go hand-in-hand).

Light Beer

go hand in hand

Light Beer

Th two go hand-in-hand

Light Beer

Bott go hand in hand

 

Light Beer

Both go hand in Hand - Cost Reduction and Service Agility

Light Beer

Agility, costs are not going down

Light Beer

Service agility and reduce cost

Light Beer

go hand in hand

Light Beer

Service agility first then cost.

 

Light Beer

Both go hand in hand

 

Light Beer

service agility

Light Beer

hand and hand

 

Light Beer

Both are hand in hand.

 

Light Beer

The two (svc agility + reduced costs) do NOT go hand in hand.  You can be cheap AND non-agile.  ;)

Light Sabre

More cost than service agility.

 

Blogger

Service agility

Lightning

Agility. Absolutely. Businesses don't grow by cutting costs. 

Lightning

serviceability

 

Light Beer

Goes hand to hand

Light Beer

cost and avoid vendor lock in

Blogger

They go hand-in-hand

Light Beer

hand in hand for long term solution

Light Beer

Eventually they go hand in hand

 

Light Beer

Light Beer

R-CORD the residnetial one is in field trial at AT&T. We have done POCs for M-CORD and E-CORD and continue to build on them with the community. 

Blogger

two go hand-in-hand.

Light Beer

service agility

Light Beer

Go hand in hand.

Light Beer

AND ANOTHER QUESTION FOR THE SPEAKERS: The general perception in the industry remains that proprietary = enhanced security.  How do you rebut this?  And (part 2 of the question) how do you advise people in their organizations to rebut this proposition and open colleagues up to the idea of moving to a more open solution?

Light Sabre

Most of the service providers are coming to the realization that thre is no real reason to differentiate at the infrastrucure level per se. And so they are wiling to adopt somehitng like CORD. We have over 20 providers around the globe very interested in using and build on CORD. 

Blogger

Is Openflow a necessary element or there are alternatives ?

Blogger

QUESTION FOR @GURU: Given that CORD is an integrated platform, how can everyday participants help contribute to it?

Light Sabre

How far is CORD from reality?

Blogger

Welcome, GACou!
(And all other newcomers)

Light Sabre

Is OLT avilable in all CO? if not whatwould be the alternate point of connectivity?

 

Light Beer

OPNFV and CORD have similar goals... CORD arctheiture is different from OPNFV in specifics. 

CORD is an integrated solutions platform that the community can use and build on. We have demonstrated how CORD can be used to support residential, mobile and enterprise custoemers. 

 

Blogger

Hate losing control of my network to my provider.  

Since April of this year, my provider seems to have enough trouble providing current services and I don't want to burden them with anything else.

Light Beer

Currently, are all the owners of the Central Offices in the U.S. on board with this transition or are there competing strategies regarding the future use of the Central Office?

Light Beer

Great questions everyone! 

Blogger

QUESTION: Are ther any interoperability issues when connecting CORD using whiteboxes and OSS to the upstream networks, like peering with upstream routers?

Light Beer

CORD uses ONOS for SDN controller/OS, XOS for service life cycle management and service composition, OpenStack and Docker for virtualization so yes we are building it on other open source platforms. 

Blogger

in CORD, focus is on access. In other ONOS use cases, we focus on the core as well. 

 

Blogger

Still don't understand how CORD is different from OPNFV?

Light Beer

Its very very important that the COs use industry-wide adopted technology so they can be outsourced easily

Light Beer

QueSTION FOR SPEAKERS: If you go with an entirely open infrastructure, how do you mitigate the performance and port-density issues at the center of the datacenter core that proprietary boxes have traditionally been best suited for??

Light Sabre

Is your focus only on the access part of the network ? or also core network?

Blogger

Most OLT/ONT GPON soltuions are mostly proprietary interfaces based on common standards. Is there a special integration or restricted set of ONTs that can be connected to the vOLT?

Light Beer

How is important to Extends the agility of micro/Cloud?

 

Light Beer

What would be the Capex and Opex to convert a CO to a open source based SDN/NFV/Cloud Datacenter ? What will be needed in retraining IT/Engineering employees in maintaining this new infrastructure ?

Light Beer

It's relevant, thereby making it more important than "not important," but "somewhat important" -- especially in this three-pointed survey -- seems to suggest some substantiality.

We're not at all at the point where we're ready to leave proprietary boxes behind (security being one of many issues/reasons) -- and they still can and do have their place -- as with whiteboxes.

Light Sabre

based on the industry maturity annd roadmap, when do you think carriers such as ATT would start proeuction implementaion?

Light Beer

Having things as a service is great.

Light Beer

Somewhat important

Light Beer

Very important. if you go through all the process of converting to this architecture, why would go with grey or open/proprietary technologies

 

Light Beer

exponentially important

 

Light Beer

The telcos datacenter in general need an overhaul

Light Beer

How important do you think it is to build the CORD with white boxes and software VNFs? Not important, somewhat important, or very important?  

Blogger

Very important.

 

Light Beer

Very important

Light Sabre

very important

Light Beer

Increasingly important!

Light Beer

Is there an option between "somewhat important" and "not important"?

Light Sabre

Very important from service provider perspective

 

Blogger

Very Important to enable Open source.

Light Beer

So, CORD is both an open source project and an architecture now, but is prescriptive in the way the architecture is realized (ONOS for controller, XOS for service orchestration, OpenFlow for programmability). How does CORD (the open source project) evolve to encompass the divergent views on programmability and control plane?

Light Beer

very important

 

Light Beer

Somewhat important

Light Sabre

Very Important

Light Beer

Very Important as this is the fabric on how Carriers can stay vendor neutral.

@Joe Stanganelli yeah it seems nothing has changed

Light Sabre

What kind of open source platforms are being referred to in the slides? Like what specific projects?

Light Sabre

good question @National

Lightning

How is CORD different from OPNFV?

Light Beer

Do you think multiple CO's will consolidate into "super CO's" so to speak - Or is there an advantage of EACH existing CO to become a data center?

Light Beer

@daniel: In the old days (and even still today), the idea of turning your central office into a datacenter has typically meant keeping your server in the janitor's closet.  ;)

Light Sabre

Respectfully, as beneficial as open source can be for various use cases and for all the pros and cons of open source vs. proprietary, I vigorously disagree with the go-to argument that proprietary inherently inhibits innovation.  Does open source encourage innovation?  Sure, it can.  (It can also encourage a lot of bickering over standards and nothing real getting done while huge bugs persist.  Open source is "open" in that way.  ;) )  But that doesn't mean the lack of open source is inherently inhibitive.

Light Sabre

CORD has been the major focus of ONOS.  Why is CORD being separated from ONOS?  What is the CORD and ONOS relationship moving forward?

 

Light Beer

CORD seems very ambitious project. making CO as data center

Blogger

sound is working perfectly for me

Light Beer

@mhixson try refreshing your screen

Blogger

Do you invision the CO will become more of an "open facility" or stay primarily proprietory to the owner of the CO

Light Beer

any sound yet?
