Telemetry and Analytics for the NFV World - IOAM, DCAE, PNDA
Network analytics is becoming a big data problem. This session details how in-packet telemetry (also know as in-band OAM - IOAM) works hand in hand with network analytics provided by a combination of ONAP DCAE and PNDA.io to gain a new level of insight into the behavior of the network. IOAM is a novel technology standardized by the IETF, with an open source implementation available from the FD.io project. ONAP and PNDA.io are analytics frameworks which nicely combine to provide a strong foundation for flexible and scalable network data analytics.

Active, or Planned Deployments of ONAP
Orange used ONAP for various internal PoC. This session will provide feedbacks on ONAP capabilities especially in the context of network connectivity topics. This session explains how Orange developed some Directed Graphs to connect via various nework equipments or to develop some dedicated UI. This session also outlines how it is possible to start ONAP using a subset of ONAP components for services that does not require VNF.

Model Driven Platform Policy
This 2-hour session is both presentations followed by panel discussion on how models can be used to specify platform policy. For ONAP to be truly self-service and to support adaptive model drive management and control, any Dev Operations team must be able to easily specify and validate platform level policy providing the foundation for service and resource related policies. Every company has Dev Ops requirements that share common needs, but differ in current infrastructure requirements. Having a flexible, simple information and data model that captures platform policy is necessary to support all the possible scenarios. In addition, platform-level policies must be able to integrate well and work efficiently with the service and resource level policies that evolve over their lifecycle. How can we define models that can meet the dynamic and changing needs of a policy-enabled ONAP without the time and expense of modifying software code? How can operation teams use ONAP policies to automatically respond to events and conditions, in order to reduce the time required to react while increasing overall network and service availability thereby reducing the labor and effort required to manage the complex infrastructure and services? To support self-service, how does a model-driven Policy Platform support the capabilities to administer policies and monitor policy execution, including: policy creation and editing, policy translation, policy harmonization (conflict detection/resolution), policy validation, policy activation and tracking, policy monitoring, and policy reporting? How can the ONAP community bring together the Policy Information and Data Models, the Use-Cases, Common Reference Points and exchange mechanisms that are essential to enabling a policy-based model-driven ONAP? How do Policies that were defined during on-boarding of a VNF evolve when they are consumed as part of the on-boarding and instantiation of service-level policies?

Configuring and Controlling a Wireless Network with ONAP
This session presentation is focused on demonstrating the capabilities and benefits of using ONAP and the ONF Common Information Model to configure and control a Wireless Network consisting of microwave and millimeter wave radios from 12 different vendors. A series of PoC's were completed with SDN-C, DCAE, A&AI, and vendor-developed mediators that translated the information model to/from the radios' proprietary representations. Using ONAP to configure and control wireless network elements via an open management interface based on a common information model truly works, with a few obvious and not-so-obvious caveats.

Achieving ONAP S3P with Standardized Object Model of Multi-Clouds
Today multi cloud objects and their hierarchical relationships are modeled in a cloud-specific way creating inconsistent modeling of similar features across multi clouds. The challenge is in both data management and interoperability among ONAP components such as onboarding, policy management, orchestration, optimization etc. This presentation discusses standardized Information Models for multi cloud objects (Physical/Logical DC, Tenant, Cluster, Host, VM, Container etc.) in terms of capabilities (platform awareness etc.), resource reservation/utilization and other parameters for current and future cloud implementations. It also discusses the hierarchical relationships between those multi cloud objects. It illustrates how policy, data management and optimization frameworks can benefit from this standardization through concrete examples thus addressing the challenges of ONAP R2 & beyond.

Deep Dive into the VPP based VNFs of the vCPE Use case
ONAP Release 1 provides a Residential vCPE use case. The vBRG, vBNG, vG-MUX and vGW components of this use case are built with the VPP data plane and Honeycomb control plane software from the fd.io project. This presentation will provide an overview of the features developed to integrate with ONAP - such as closed loop support with DCAE. Followed by lessons learned during the integration with the Amsterdam release. Finally, there will be a discussion of how these VNFs provide a foundation for further development of orchestration of VNFs that take advantage of Enhanced Platform Awareness (EPA). Such as the implications of orchestrating a VNF that uses SR-IOV network interfaces and CPU pinning to achieve high network performance.

PNFs and Mixed Infrastructure Support for E2E Network Slicing
As NFV deployment expanded from central cloud to the edge, also with the trends of Cloud Native and MEC, there are increasing requirements for the NFV network support of mixed infrastructure resources, include: VMs, Containers, Bare metals, hardware accelerators (e.g. SmartNIC), dedicated PNFs etc. To enabling 5G RAN and EtE network slicing support, ONAP need the capability to be aware of the mixed infrastructure resources with generic data modelling description. Also need to extend orchestration and control capability to the PNFs and intra-cloud/CO site, to keep the consistency of network attributes and QoS guarantee of network slicing services. With the current limitation of VIM layer which mainly focus on the management and orchestration of virtual resources, limited awareness of the cloud infrastructure underneath, there are solid gaps for Service orchestration and VNF controllers to be aware of and consume the mixed cloud resources, especially when across domains. Expose the cloud infrastructure in a unified model driven way, also enrich the A&AI with an elastic, accurate, up to date infrastructure resources descriptions based on common data model template. Which can be further consumed by a cloud site/local controller to support EtE automation and hierarchical network control will achieve the agile, low latency, fast auto-scaling and other new requirements from 5G and MEC.

State, Context, Adaptability, and Scale for Self-Learning Closed Loop Policies
Regardless of its domains of application, the policy system at the centre of a closed loop system such as ONAP will need to have some very stringent and dissonant quality attributes. As well as ensuring that the correct policy is in the correct place at the correct time, executing policies must preserve state and yet scale and must take account of their (possibly conflicting) context and yet be adaptable. In this talk we discuss the relative importance of these quality attributes when applied to a system such as ONAP. We draw on our work in Policy to discuss how policies that hold state at run time can be scaled, and how a policy system can be engineered to be adaptable even as its state and context changes. We go on to make some suggestion on how the architecture and implementation of the ONAP policy framework can evolve to meet the S3P/Carrier grade requirements
