Aarna Networks MWC Barcelona 2022 Demos

Aarna Networks, is an open-source software company that enables zero-touch management of 5G networks and edge computing applications. Our flagship product is AMCOP or the Aarna Networks Multi-Cluster Orchestration Platform, which is an open-source orchestration, lifecycle management, closed-loop automation platform for cloud native network services and edge computing applications. It consists of:

  • Linux Foundation Edge Multi-Cluster Orchestrator (EMCO) for intent-based orchestration and Day-0 configuration
  • Linux Foundation Open Network Automation Platform (ONAP) CDS component for Day 1 & 2 configuration and LCM; for the O-RAN SMO use case, this component is supplemented with OpenDaylight MDSAL
  • Kafka, CNCF Open Policy Agent (OPA), along with select ONAP DCAE microservices for analytics and closed-loop automation
  • Numerous CNCF and related projects (Istio, Prometheus, …)
  • Proprietary value adds such as 5G network slicing, O-RAN NONRTRIC, NWDAF

At the recently concluded MWC in Barcelona, Aarna Networks had the following live demonstrations:

1. Joint Demo with AWS and RedHat at AWS Experience Booth in MWC Barcelona

In this demo, it was shown how the Aarna Networks Multi-Cluster Orchestration Platform (AMCOP) was installed on a Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS (ROSA) cluster and how AMCOP deployed a 5G core network service on another Kubernetes cluster running on an AWS EC2 instance. ROSA provided a way to accelerate application development by leveraging familiar OpenShift APIs and tools for deployments on AWS. AMCOP was one such application that could be installed on ROSA with a Kubernetes Operator. AMCOP in-turn deployed cloud-native network services and edge computing applications to other ROSA, AWS EKS, or Kubernetes on AWS EC2 clusters.

2. Joint Demo with Quanta Cloud Technology at the QCT Booth in MWC Barcelona

In this demo, the scaleout of QCT 5G Core was demonstrated across two Kubernetes clusters by using AMCOP. The demo focussed on the following:

  • Installation of AMCOP on Kubernetes cluster #1
  • Creation and registration of Kubernetes clusters #2 & #3 onto AMCOP
  • Onboarding of QCT 5GC CNFs onto AMCOP
  • Creation of a 5GC Network Service with onboarded CNFs
  • Orchestration of the 5GC network service onto target cluster #2 by specifying placement intents
  • Orchestration of Prometheus which scrapes CPU load information from cluster #2
  • Egress of CPU load data from Prometheus to AMCOP
  • Automatic scale-out of AMF network function into cluster #3 triggered by AMCOP when the CPU load exceeds the threshold

3. Free5gc CORE with multiple Anchor UPF orchestration via AMCOP at the TelcoDR Cloudcity Booth in MWC Barcelona

In this demonstration, we showed orchestration of Free5GC Core using AMCOP across multiple Edge Clusters with Uplink Classifier (ULCL) mode enabled and then tested it with UERANSIM (Simulator for End Device).

4. Multidomain orchestration using Terraform & ONAP CDS at the TelcoDR Cloudcity Booth in MWC Barcelona

In this session, we showed how EMCO can be integrated with other open-source projects: Terraform, Camunda workflow engine & ONAP CDS, to perform multidomain orchestration of cloud and edge services.
