The Akraino project is defining and implementing reference software stacks to enable edge use cases. In case of 5G networks, network performance is key. For this reason, we have been working on a performance optimized software stack in Akraino by adding support for OpenVswitch with DPDK to the Network Cloud Unicycle blueprint. To this end, we introduced DPDK support to the underlying Airship and OpenStack-Helm projects.

In this presentation, we will talk about our motivation for enabling DPDK support in the Network Cloud blueprint. We will introduce the high-level design of the software stack and provide an overview of how we leverage it for 5G vRAN deployments. Finally, we will dive into the technical implementation in the Airship and OpenStack-Helm projects and showcase how we achieved and leveraged cross-project collaboration.
