For DevOps teams, “continuity” is a key concept. It usually includes continuous integration (CI), delivery (CD), deployment and testing. This can be very demanding and requires the right set of tools so that those teams can perform their work. Nuage X is one tool offered by Nuage Networks to customers and partners, not only for evaluation and integration but also in their CI/CD efforts. Read More >

In this session we will start with a day in the life of the network operations professional responding to an alert: An issue is causing service degradation and is affecting a large number of routers. Using the application hosting infrastructure available on IOS-XR 6.1.1 and linux tools like iPerf we’ll quickly trouble shoot the issue and resolve it on a pair of routers.
Then, using Ansible, a tool that application and infrastructure owners use to orchestrate changes in the data center, and a set of Playbooks developed by Cisco to manage network devices, we’ll remediate the issue across a fleet of routers automatically to save time and reduce errors. Read More >
Traditional approaches of securing a data center are focused on building a strong perimeter to keep threats outside the network. However, little is done to protect the network once a breach has occurred.

Netronome DemoFriday: Ericsson Cloud SDN With OpenDaylight Accelerated by Netronome Agilio-CX Intelligent Server Adapters for Improved Telco NFV Performance & Flexibility
An important requirement for Telco NFV Applications is high performance data-plane scaling and throughput, while maintaining data plane flexibility for rapid feature innovation. While software based Open vSwitch forwarding provides good flexibility, the low forwarding rate of the software-based data plane makes it difficult to implement many NFV applications with a reasonable amount of server resources. This is because NFV applications are very data intensive, so the amount of server resources needed to implement the virtual switch function to feed these hungry applications can in many cases consume the majority of server CPU resources.
