Can´t get audio at this time, I will try later. Greetings to all.

By the way, how can I save content in Profile?

Light Sabre

Thank you, Kelsey

Light Beer

Thank you, Toby.

Light Beer

Phase two, we are still 3-6 months away yet.

Light Beer

cross country Running

Light Beer

hiw will mano handle differnet types of information?

Light Beer

Who manages/coordinates the resources from different VIMs, when there are multiple VIMs in same or different PoP

Light Beer

what are the typical tasks, VIM delivers?

Light Beer

what are typical issues when implementing mano

Light Beer

great that its archived

 

Light Beer

bye for now :) 

Light Beer

good day to all

Light Beer

One big concern with the VM is the throughput processing capabilities, today we have routers that can process up to terabyte(s), is that something that we can expect from the SDN solution?

What about the EMS, we are trying to move away from proprietary solution, but don't we need a vendor for the EMS?

Light Beer

thanks again Kelsey and Toby! See everyone back here on Friday

 

Lightning

@AVP/TOBY Yes, very much so, thanks for answering our many questions!!

Blogger

Hope the feedback/Q&A was helpful. Toby

Light Beer

that and the shift from managing hardware to developing software/infra as code

Light Beer

MANO is really not that different than what came before in terms of orchestration .. the part that is different is the expectations that MANO has grown up around.. the service agility is what is causing the cultural change 

Light Beer

I believe a cultural change and willingness to adopt the new structure as well as technical training is both required to make the shift a success!

Light Beer

Thank you Kelsey and Toby!

Light Beer

I find it eye opening to have MANO presented as being something as fundamental as a cultural change (or else I'm misunderstanding the conversation). That point of view indicates implementation would be more involved than technical training, or am I wrong?

Light Beer

Go agile - be faster to market to gain the bulk of the business/market share on your side!

Light Beer

AT&T focused first on two things.. business connectivity and business voice services.. this allowed us to limit the scope of impact before we dove into the consumer services which have broader impact. Starting with connectivity and voice was an de-riksing interative strategy

Light Beer

@AVP/TOBY Agreed that cultural changes and the need to reskill is just as important as the technical challenges. Thanks for answering our questions and for the excellent lecture today!

Blogger

I can see that there is plenty of companies, big and small, new and established, working on different solutions. To me that tells that we can see lot of the old providers trying to position their old products to fit the purpose. I think some of them are doing good job, but many are just relabeling.

Light Beer

the rate of change in web sites, ecommerce sites, content delivery OTT is definately inspiriing alot of this transformation .. and yes we don't have 6 months to get it right

Light Beer

yes.. shifting from waterfall methods and hands on troubleshooting of the past toward agile and to coded infrastructure is also a big cultural change.  conference bridges with 10s of people doing heroic work is an anti-pattern in this transformation

Light Beer

I think biggest cultural changes come with move to agile and the different model of control that you need to implement in that way of working. People need to also start thinking about developing faster than allowing themselves to stay in the old "6 months is OK delivery time" thinking.

 

Light Beer

on the overlap of open source groups..  i think the diverse innovation and invention is great.. but there is a limit. at some point with all software you have to sit back and refactor .. we are definately headed into a refactoring phase

Light Beer

on the cultural changes.. this is probably as important a change as is the technical challenge.. we are spending alot of effort on pivoting resources from traditional network administrator roles and vendor management.. over to developers, DevOps teams, and participants in open source ecosystems.. 

Light Beer

In regards to SDN, do you think there's too much overlap among the open source groups?

Moderator

Thanks for the great presentation!

Light Sabre

on the question about security implications..  fully automated and integrated firewalls, IPS/IDS, DDOS prevention are all network functions that are enabled by our move to NFV and MANO.. we can, in many ways, enable more layers of protection with SDN then we were able to do before

 

Light Beer

Thank you, very helpful information, have good day,...,   Toby, Kelsey and all.

Light Sabre

Thanks Kelsey see you on the next lexture!

Light Beer

why did ATT focus on voice first for MANO implementation?

 

Light Beer

@AVP/TOBY Listener Q - 

Sounds like a lot of digital transformation is required to make all this work. Any cultural changes required to go with?

Blogger

great presentation

Light Beer

thanks very interesting

Light Beer

Very interesting, thanks for the lecture!

Light Beer

Thanks Toby and Kelsey! great MANO overview

Light Sabre

Wow what a great lecture!

Lightning

Always that issue with public vs. private vs. hybrid clouds - it can be a security mess!

Light Sabre

@pposner | maybe becuase they have substantial resources in phone services? just a guess

Light Beer

This didn't touch on security too much. What are some security implications AT&T has learned from MANO so far?

Light Sabre

We are in reserach phase

Light Beer

Are vendors coming up with new, better OSS/BSS that work better with SDN/NFV and the cloud? What about YANG-based OSS based on SDN? 

Moderator

why did ATT focus on voice first?

Light Beer

Thanks for quite informative presentation.

Light Beer

I really enjoyed how this wasn't vendor specific at all.

Light Sabre

Question:  Is it possible within your MANO to allow a vendor specific NFV to allow for network complexity adaptability.  Research Adaptive Complexity Theory

Light Beer

Older OSS/BSS was point to point, or point to multipoint, now there needs to be assurance and monitoring at the application level? 

Moderator

I appreciate the links you provided at the end of the slides.

Light Beer

Research & development

Light Sabre

Phase-1 passed & in Phase-2 but we are like a year away from implementation

Light Beer

I'm just listening in -- nowhere near R&D where I am

Light Sabre

3-6 months away to POC

 

Light Beer

Phase 1 - Research and development,

Light Beer

Reply to 2nd poll question: Phase 1 (research and development)

Light Beer

Where is your organization in the process of adopting NFV MANO? Phase 1 - Research and development, Phase 2: 3-6 months away from initial deployment, or Phase 3 - several months into deployment.

Blogger

good to hear there are open consortiums like this

Light Sabre

Great to hear there is a lot of development in open source here

Light Sabre

Is interoperability an issue? How do you solve these issues?

Light Sabre

specifications updates evolving over time is welcome. let's hope all continue to work together well

Light Sabre

flexibility its awesome

Light Beer

we live in an interesting future of mashed up technologies -- it's facinating to watch the evolution

Light Sabre

service agility and flexibility

Light Beer

All of the above

Light Sabre

All of the above

 

 

Light Beer

not cost savings - at least not yet

Light Beer

I think its all of the above

Light Beer

Pretty much all of the above.

Light Beer

all of the above

 

Light Beer

Hmmm..... I'd say thats a tough one but scalability and flexibility

Lightning

All of the above

Light Beer

All of the above

Light Beer

All of the above. Mainly bit more tilted to capex savings.

 

Light Beer

all of the above!

 

Light Sabre

Reply to first listener poll: All of the above (flexibility, cost savings, agility, etc.).

Light Beer

poll 1: ALL of the above

Light Sabre

All of the above

Light Beer

What are the biggest benefits to NFV MANO? Operating and capital cost savings, scalability, flexibility, service agility, or all of the above?

Blogger

@TOBY:

Can NFV-MANO be used for the management of non-virtualized resources?

Light Beer

policy management and engines + automation sounds great

Light Sabre

how do you expect analytics to be integrated into the workflow process, to instantiate new or additional  VNF's to meet traffic demands, how do you decide where it is deployed (Central or remote).

Do you envisage multi Mano instances communicating with each other?

 

Light Beer

does any example of  virtulization of SeGW exist?

Light Beer

"MANO must provide all that the OSSs did plus more" Why then in the NFV diagram there is an OSS layer on top of the VNF domain?

 

Light Beer

How does this help with DDoS and multi-vector attacks?

Light Sabre

Sounds like a lot of digital transformation is required to make all this work. Any cultural changes required to go with?

Light Sabre

Have you made changes to prvent attacks like the recent DNS one to assure that impacts are minimized?

Light Beer

@TOBY:

What kind of interface is used for MANO - OSS/BSS internetworking?

Light Beer

Are you seeing concerns from your customers in light of the recent attack that occurred in shrared environment?

Light Beer

what is the roadmap for agreement/interop between different open implementations.

Light Beer

Excellent questions everyone!

Blogger

re vacation: what. is. vacation?

Light Sabre

Good afternoon everyone! Good to see a bustling room today

Light Sabre

How effective is a hybrid system of MANO and legacy?

Light Beer

MANO is fragmented (ECOMP, OPEN-0, etc) how will the industry move towards consensus? 

Moderator

Question for Toby - Is MANO inherently more secure with its automated properties?

Light Beer

Are there any special rulles or pitfalls to look out for when dealing with MANO?

Light Beer

In multivendor scenario, interoperability will be a challenge right with standards evolving?

 

Light Sabre

What are some of the most challenging legacy situations MANO integrations can solve?

Light Sabre

@Kelsey | I'm so jealous—parasailing looks like so much fun!

Light Beer

Start thinking about what questions you have for Toby, I'll be asking Toby a listener question shortly!

Welcome @AVP,Clou83641 (Toby)! We're looking forward to your presentation!

Blogger

Great question @JohnGordon, I'll make a note of that for our Q&A!

Blogger

Thank you! Got the presentation notes on MANO. QUESTION: Pardon my low level of understanding, but MANO has nothing to do with replacing operating systems local to users, is that right? It is just to manage and orchestrate virtual networking, or am I missing something?

Light Beer

@William excellent! Glad you'll be joining us today!

Blogger

I see the slides after refresh.

Light Beer

@JohnGordon - slides are up but you may need to refresh your screen to view them.

Blogger

@JohnGordon slides will be posted shortly!
