  9. 9. © 2019 Aarna Networks, Inc. Dublin Commercial Activity From During the Dublin release cycle, new production deployments were announced by AT&T around consumer mobility services, and by Orange to monitor the quality of network management system access in several European countries. China Mobile, China Telecom, Deutsche Telekom, Reliance Jio, Turk Telecom, Bringcom, Swisscom, KDDI, and TIM conducted testing, PoCs, or trials that in several cases will result in production deployments by Q4’19. On the vendor side, Aarna Networks, Amdocs, Huawei, and ZTE announced a pure-play ONAP distribution or products based on ONAP. In addition, new demos and support services were made available by Accenture, Ampere, Arris, Ciena, iconectiv, Netsia, Ribbon, Rift, Pantheon, Wipro, Ericsson, Nokia, and Tech Mahindra.

  12. 12. Dublin Release Blueprints © 2019 Aarna Networks, Inc.
  13. 13. © 2019 Aarna Networks, Inc. Dublin Release Blueprints (Major) Use Case Value in Dublin release BBS (New) Multi-gigabit residential connectivity over PON, orchestration & LCM, change of location support for ONT (nomadic) 5G Enhancements Better configuration and PNF support (including upgrade), perf. mgmt. & fault mgmt. (PM, FM) improvements, modeling progress for network slicing CCVPN Enhancements Dynamic addition of services, bandwidth on demand *Prior blueprints include vCPE and VoLTE
  14. 14. © 2019 Aarna Networks, Inc. ONAP Blueprint: Broadband Service ● Automation of multi-gigabit residential internet connectivity services based on PON (Passive Optical Network) ● Automatic re-registration of CPE when subscriber moves
  15. 15. © 2019 Aarna Networks, Inc. Dublin Release Blueprints (Additional) Functionality Value in Dublin release k8s based cloud region support Container based network function support in Multicloud Control Loop Requirements Model driven control loop; common notification across orchestrators/controllers Scaling Enhancements (Continuation) Ease of use enhancements HPA Enhancements (Continuation) Ease of use enhancements Change Management - Extensions Model-driven change schedule optimization, traffic migration and user-defined workflows, PNF software upgrade and roll-back
  16. 16. Dublin Release Interop & Standards © 2019 Aarna Networks, Inc.
  17. 17. © 2019 Aarna Networks, Inc. OVP Expanded to ONAP⇔VNF Interop ● Open source, community led compliance and validation program; part of LFN ● Program expanded to include interop testing of commercial VNFs with ONAP ● Currently focuses on static testing of VNF packages (Heat, TOSCA) ● Does not cover operator specific requirements ○ New feature in Dublin allows VSP (vendor software product) compliance checks to be added in SDC to fill this gap
  18. 18. © 2019 Aarna Networks, Inc. Standards Alignment ONAP is serving as a focal point for industry alignment across multiple standards. NFV ISG SOL003, SOL001, SOL004, SOL005 alignment ZSM ISG E2E arch, network slicing Ref. implementation for new Business Operating System (BOS) effort Alignment with APIs Alignment with LSO 5G blueprint working on 3GPP standards for data collection, network slicing; ONAP VNF i/f may get used in 3GPP standards
