The network edge (i.e. Central Offices, Points of Presence, Internet Exchange Points) is becoming strategically important for service providers (including cloud providers) because it is a vantage point for them to offer low latency, efficient (bandwidth conservation) and customized services to residential, mobile and enterprise customers. And with 5G, IoT and AR/VR becoming reality soon, an open programmable network edge is becoming really important and urgent. In this session we will discuss what we can do to create open programmable network edge with open source SDN, NFV and Cloud Platforms and disaggregated white boxes. 

  • 5G, IoT, and AR/VR services and their implications on network architecture — Srini Kalapala, Verizon 
  • NFV as an enabler of programmable network edge — Prodip Sen, HPE 
  • Enabling Innovative Services at the Network Edge — Larry Peterson, ONF/ON.Lab  
  • SD-RAN and xRAN and how they pave the path for 5G, Sachin Katti
