Transcript

  • 1. THE BRAINS OF THE NEW GLOBAL NETWORK BRIDGING IMS INTO THE 21ST CENTURY WITH OPEN SOURCE SOFTWARE Piers Finlayson 28 April 2014 Metaswitch Networks | Proprietary and confidential | © 2014 | 1
  • 2. AGENDA §  Time for a change – Introducing Project Clearwater §  Why the cloud? §  Designing for the cloud §  Clearwater function and architecture §  Clearwater use cases §  Project Clearwater Ecosystem §  Case study
  • 3. TIME FOR A CHANGE §  IMS is "business as usual" for Tier 1 telco vendors §  Complex and costly §  Long release cycles §  Closed and proprietary implementation §  Typically on proprietary hardware §  This model enables OTT providers to run rings around telcos §  In-house software expertise §  Continual innovation §  Rapid release cycles §  Creative use of Cloud technology and open source software
  • 4. NETWORK FUNCTIONS VIRTUALIZATION 13 operators leading Industry Specification Group on NFV under auspices of ETSI “The new network will be built on high volume industry-standard servers, storage elements, ethernet switches and IT systems running software apps from independent developers” Operators embracing the concept of the "Software Telco"
  • 5. ROUTES TO NETWORK FUNCTIONS VIRTUALIZATION Proprietary Hardware Standard Hardware Virtualized Environment Implement all hardware-specific functions in software Design for standard hardware Design for the Cloud Adapt software to virtualized environment Project Clearwater
  • 6. WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO DESIGN FOR THE CLOUD? §  Using the same architectures as before is missing the point §  “Stand on the shoulders of giants” §  Telcos used to have the highest scale systems §  Not so any more: Google, Amazon, Facebook etc etc
  • 7. SCALABILITY OF TOP INTERNET PROVIDERS §  Google §  Served 2 trillion searches in 2012, 200 million an hour §  Facebook §  As of June 2013, users spent ~1 billion minutes an hour §  Netflix §  Streaming over 2 billion hours of video per month, 165 million minutes an hour §  Youtube §  6 billion hours a month, 500 million minutes an hour §  Amazon §  In 2012 EC2 estimated to consist of 100,000-1M physical servers
  • 8. WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO DESIGN FOR THE CLOUD? §  Using the same architectures as before is missing the point §  “Stand on the shoulders of giants” §  Telcos used to have the highest scale systems §  Not so any more: Google, Amazon, Facebook etc etc §  New ways to create massively scalable systems §  Very well proven §  Culture is very open § experiences with design patterns (blogs, conference talks, ...) § open source components §  New philosophical approaches §  APIs, APIs, APIs – it’s all about the ecosystem §  Move fast – re-use rather then re-invent §  Experiment – iterate and evaluate
  • 9. PROJECT CLEARWATER – IMS IN THE CLOUD The Cloud Open Source Open Standard APIs + + = Massively scalable, very low cost, IMS-based mass-market VoIP services platform designed from the ground up to leverage the Cloud Business Model Innovation + www.projectclearwater.org
  • 10. CLEARWATER – DESIGN OBJECTIVES §  Massive scalability §  Highly robust and resilient §  Built-in basic calling services §  Compliance with IMS specs §  Standalone capability §  Business model innovation
  • 11. CLEARWATER – OBJECTIVES MET §  Massive scalability §  Tested at 10M subs, 20M BHCA: cost < €0.02 per sub per yr (EC2) §  Elastic scalability demonstrated §  Highly robust and resilient §  Web-scale architecture, stateless SIP processing nodes §  N+M pools, geo-redundancy demonstrated §  Built-in basic calling services §  Basic MMTel services included §  Compliance with IMS specs §  Tested with HSS, TASs, MGCF, AGCF, P-CSCF §  Standalone capability §  Built in mini-HSS used in lab trials and PoCs §  Business model innovation §  Released as Open Source
  • 12. CLEARWATER FUNCTIONAL OVERVIEW P-CSCF I-CSCF S-CSCF BGCF MMTel TAS Sub DB HSSTAS SIP AS WebRTC Project Clearwater SIP TDM MGCF MG I-BCF WebRTC Gateway SIP XCAP XDMS DB
  • 13. CLEARWATER APPLICATION EXAMPLES §  Free-standing consumer voice and video comms §  Hosted business voice §  VoLTE §  Developer API Ecosystem §  PacketCable 1.x migration to 2.x §  Class 5 switch replacement §  RCS – Messaging §  WebRTC
  • 14. PROJECT CLEARWATER ECOSYSTEM The Project Clearwater Ecosystem brings together partners with products and expertise in §  IMS technology §  NFV infrastructure §  Systems Integration to fast track deployments of the leading virtualized IMS solution
  • 15. BENEFITS OF ECOSYSTEM http://www.projectclearwater.org/ecosystem/ §  Interop testing has already been performed with all partner products §  More partners expected over coming weeks
  • 16. §  WebRTC is peer-to-peer technology §  Peer-to-peer videoconferencing leads to vast amounts of bandwidth required/consumed §  Video mixing requires significant compute resouces §  Jitsi videobridge is a Selective Forwarding Unit, acting as a lightweight videoconferencing server §  Minimal processing, based in the cloud §  Reduces upstream bandwidth requirements from each client to single video stream §  Project Clearwater gateways IMS endpoints into Jitsi videobridge conferences WEBRTC VIDEOBRIDGE – CLEARWATER AND JITSI Metaswitch Networks | Proprietary and confidential | © 2014 | 16
