REMINDER: Please Take the Intelligent Network and AI Survey by Jan 5 (LFN)

Brandon Wick
 

LFN Community Members:

The LFN End User Advisory Group (EUAG) recently created a new survey titled the "Intelligent Network and AI for Survey for Telecom Operators, Vendors and AI communities". The survey is designed to determine industry interest, readiness, priorities, scenarios, and methods for adopting intelligent networks using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML).

In order to gain a larger sample size and achieve a broader perspective across the industry, we are opening up this particular survey to the broader community. We'll forward this email to the LF Networking lists and feel free to share it with anyone in the ecosystem you feel would be appropriate. Respondent data will be parsed by the company type (network operator, vendor, systems integrator, etc.) Survey results will be made public and shared in Q1 2021. We hope you decide to take the survey and help enrich the known landscape of this exciting new phase in networking evolution. Please take the survey before Jan 5, 2021


Please let us know if you have any questions or comments and thank you!

REMINDER: FD.io Webinar Tomorrow, 9:00 AM PT on High-Performance IPsec

Brandon Wick
 

Details: September 17, 2020 | FD.io’s VPP Smashes the Barrier to Wide Scale Adoption of Inexpensive High-Performance IPsec | Audian Paxson & Neal Hartsell, Netgate; John DiGiglio, Intel; Jerome Tollet, Cisco | 

Description: The perimeter has disappeared. Apps are either born in the cloud, or moving there fast. And here in 2020, we now see massive work from home. Secure communications, specifically using IPsec, are more important than ever. But as connection counts and speeds rise, networking costs become budget busters. Major breakthroughs in software-based packet processing, specifically VPP, have shattered previously limited economics. This webinar sheds light on how VPP does what it does, the remarkable results it achieves, in both performance and price-performance.

Brandon Wick
 

Details: Wednesday, September 2, 2020, 7:00 AM PT | CSPs Explore ONAP Consumption Models | Lei Huang, China Mobile Research Institute; Javier Ger, Telecom Argentina

Description: The End User Advisory Group (EUAG) was created by LF Networking (LFN) to share views, challenges, and best practices between user organizations; highlighting new areas of opportunity for the developer community. As the voice of the end user, the EUAG supports the vision of ONAP and its adoption in the industry as well as contributes use cases and requirements to the project that deliver maximum value to the industry as a whole. The EUAG’s ONAP working group recently produced a survey and whitepaper, sharing views on the most important considerations, opportunities, and impediments towards a seamless end user adoption of ONAP. This webinar will cover the key considerations for consumption aspects of ONAP—what are the challenges, key concerns, models and references—as well as the opportunities for CSPs looking at projects like ONAP.
