Cloud Native Network Services Day @ KubeCon+CloudNativeCon Europe 2019

May 20 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm


Cloud Native Network Services Day (Hosted by LF Networking)
Monday, May 20th, 9:00 – 4:00

As large Internet and Communications Service Providers (CSPs) look ahead to the next generation of services, such as 5G, IOT, and SmartCities, their drive to transform their networks through a journey from monolithic hardware to Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) to Cloud Native Network Functions (CNFs) grows stronger as does their need to leverage the work of open source.

LF Networking (LFN) brings together seven top open source networking projects to increase harmonization across platforms, communities, and ecosystems. The LFN projects address major industry challenges and through collaboration between end users, vendors, and developers, are transforming all aspects of the network and accelerating open source deployments.

As cloud native technologies and design paradigms become more important to the next generation of network services, the LFN community of CSPs and vendors has been actively engaging with the cloud native ecosystem to bring cloud native services to the networking ecosystem.

Cloud Native Network Services Day is about bringing open source networking projects together with cloud native developers looking to expand their reach in the networking space. Attendees will benefit from the perspectives of both communities around their latest innovations and strategies for accelerating CSP testing and deployment and reducing time-to-market for services.

The day will include a brief overview of the open source networking landscape of projects and will cover pressing industry use cases — such as as Cloud Native 5G Network Services (Virtual Central Office). Other potential topic areas are:

  • Cloud Native Orchestration
  • Network Service Mesh Use Cases
  • vRAN/vEPC
  • CI/CD
  • Edge Automation

The CFP is now open. Submit this form by Thursday, April 18th.
