LCE13: Bob Monkman Keynote LCE13

  1. 1. 1 Software-Defined Networking: Next-Generation Network Virtualization Bob Monkman Enterprise Networking Segment Manager ARM Ltd. Linaro Connect Europe 2013
  2. 2. 2 “I wish I had this book…” SDNSDNSDNSDN Disclaimer: The views expressed in this presentation are largely those of the presenter, Influenced by a bunch others who seem to know a thing or two about this subject… blah, blah, blah…do not necessarily represent the views of management etc.
  3. 3. 3 Networking undergoing significant shift… Flexible, virtualized services Scalable performance Software and Automation taking key role Rapid Deployment of New Services, Quality of Experience Differentiate Low-power, integrated SoCs Inflection points: • S-RAN/C-RAN • Small cells • CRAN initiatives • CoMP etc. • CDN @ Edge • Server/Higher performance compute integration • Virtualized services • Compute, Storage & I/O • SDN (Open Flow, OpenStack, OpenDaylight…) • Operator driven initiatives • NFV • Goal: Commodity compute with networking offload.
  4. 4. 4 Market dynamics faced by service providers Market trends Data explosion accelerates operator profitability problem Cloud adoption in IT has been very fast and is radically changing the way technology will be deployed w/ business models that will be adopted by service providers. Pressure to converge on All-IP, virtualized, commodity platforms in turn puts pressure on the OEM’s competitive advantage with the highly-optimized proprietary HW platforms they offer today. Service Provider Value Chain Top line - growth by addressing new opportunities (OTT revenue stream). Simplified B2B integration and service differentiation Bottom line – increased efficiency Network management simplification in multi-vendor, multi-technology landscape Business and technology convergence Result: Lots of New Entrants AMAZON, Google, Facebook, Skype, HP, IBM, Dell, Baidu, Plumgrid, Open Source etc. ARM – Expansion of engagement strategy Competitive Landscape Wireless Delivery
  5. 5. 5 NFV:Operators’ Cost/Flexibility Analysis Mobility, IoT driving explosion of data & devices to manage Lack of flexibility, agility to move, re-purpose network resources Variety of custom HW growing Software updates/service launches take many months High equipment costs, with costs ½ every 3.5 years* Std. Server cost curve ½ every 2 years showing promise* Cloud/Virtualization technologies rapidly maturing for functional consolidation Availability of OSS frameworks across networking, storage and compute SDN techniques emerging Seeking a new model to scale network management Network Function Virtualization group formed (NFV) Operator Challenges Industry Trends
  6. 6. 6 Operators need New Revenue OTT providers are making the big margins Operators cannot compete with OTT players w/ zero network cost Service Providers will likely need to take more control of the Services/App provisioning layer Services Enablement and Application Integration layer figure prominently in new models This is where the $$$ is. Source: Overture Networks
  7. 7. 7 NextGen Architecture Viewpoint Key Potential Benefits Optimum use of network resources (Lowest cost function) Increase network agility Unleash service innovation Accelerate service “velocity” Extract business intelligence Enable dynamic, service-driven virtual networks “NaaS” Better economics Drive down hardware costs Leverage performance/price advantage of distributed computing Lower OPEX Management Layer Control Plane Forwarding Plane Physical Layer Services Layer API API API API API API API API API Application Development Service Creation Monitoring Analysis Security Abstraction & Network Elements Source: Heavy Reading analyst perspective, drawing upon various carrier & vendor views- modified for use here Figure 1: SDN- Open, Network Virtualization, Programmability at Multiple Layers Virtualization Layer API API API
  8. 8. 8 Solutions popping up like dandelions Conceptual architectures, standards, open source projects SDN as a Concept/Vision Centralized Control Plane in Software, In VMs, on commodity servers Entire network view for streamlined operations Network managed by in- house net IT-merged into broader infrastructure Promises Faster, simpler, cheaper OPEX NFV: Network Function Virtualization Working group under ETSI Formed by mobile operators Use SDN concepts- Goal: virtualize mobile network elements as possible Open Flow Project By Open Networking Forum All major players in Defines architecture and API spec for SDN Controller. Define protocol commands to data plane: Narrow focus OpenDaylight Many major players from ONF and the broader industry Broad Focus: Builds around OpenFlow (options), filling gaps such as Services Layer Open Source Project OpenStack This is an Open Source project for building the next gen Cloud Infrastructure. This seems what most will use as a code base for the back-end converged infrastructure.
  9. 9. 9 NFV: Operator Perspective/Vision
  10. 10. 10 Ecosystem Impact: Incumbent OEMs Infrastructure incumbents have been responding to trends Smart, cloud-enabled access equipment, CDN, etc. Joining many of the initiatives to influence, contribute and navigate the shift Most are acquiring/developing SDN software assets to bolster their readiness and positioning Prediction: Incumbent OEMs will continue to factor heavily in solution supply chain Experience/expertise in system integration/deployment, reliability etc. The architecture, packaging and value proposition must adapt
  11. 11. 11 Ecosystem Impact: Software Legacy embedded networking ecosystem facing new entrants from enterprise ecosystem Disruption! Mostly Proprietary OEM Code
  12. 12. 12 What does this mean for Linaro? Cloud Orchestration Compute Networking Storage LNG: Common Data Plane Programming Model: Data Plane Optimizations Optimized SoCs OpenStack gaining broad adoption Great opportunity for collaboration OpenFlow, OpenDaylight Unproven: Strong concepts, troubling concerns: Alternatives will no doubt emerge Lots of opportunity for innovation & collaboration: • Hypervisors • Network virtualization • HW assist/Open Source HW • Service/Application Enablement
  13. 13. 13 ARM’s Value Proposition in NFV/SDN ARM and Partners driving innovation Not only power but integration and workload optimization, and true commodity, not monopoly Common ISA, with choice, faster innovation cadence and Unmatched range of innovative SoC solutions Open source driving disruption ARM, Linaro and Partners investing in Open Source Many Open Source Projects opening up Opportunity or innovation, collaboration & disruption never higher. ARM technology for NGN Multi-core Cortex A and System IP @ the right performance points Robust 64bit Roadmap broadens the opportunity Market demand for ARM Compute, Storage & Networking sectors want and demand the ARM innovation Expanding footprint at a rapid pace… Particularly via the “Disruptors”
  14. 14. 14 “Service” Infrastructure Convergence Legacy SDN/NFV & Open source 21st Century S/N/P/IaaS Compute Storage Networking ARM technologies + Ecosystem enabling convergence CPU, GPGPU, TZ security, System IP, SoC innovators… Server & Software ecosystem will be Crucial
  15. 15. 15 Summary There are enormous industry shifts underway in networking and cloud infrastructure The ARM ecosystem offers compelling solutions with a common software platform optimized w/ innovative hardware ARM has now joined the NFV Working Group! To contribute, to influence, to position our ecosystem strongly & demonstrate thought leadership Collaboration is critical- Working together within Linaro, the key open source initiatives (including Open Compute), as well as the broad community, to deliver true value in the chain!
