Feedback form is now closed.
You just have deployed your NFVi successfully and you are eager to onboard your vRAN VNFs and CNFs. But hold on: is your NFVi properly configured? Tempest and Rally tests passed at 100%, but is it really enough for NFVi?

I will demonstrate, live, how to perform your OpenStack for Telco post-deployment validation, with open source standard NFV tools, and verify if the PTP accuracy is compliant with vRAN requirements, as well as Real Time characteristics. We will deep-dive on “why?” a Real Time Linux and KVM are required for PTP, and the fine tuning implied by Real Time.

I will use a typical vRAN/Edge OpenStack deployment for this demonstration, hosting Real Time virtual machines and Kubernetes Telco Containers. All typical networking features will be activated at once: SR-IOV, OVS-DPDK, KVM-RT, Distributed Compute Node, collectd, FPGA, Numa Aware vSwitch and PTP.
