Aarna Networks Takes the Stage at KubeCon

The Cloud Native Computing Foundation’s (CNCF’s) flagship event brings together adopters and technologists from both open source and cloud native communities to exchange insights around Kubernetes and other CNCF projects along with developer-centric methodologies like DevOps, CI/CD, and much more.

Aarna Networks, who joined the CNCF earlier this year, was well represented at the event, Oct 24-28 in Detroit, Michigan, with six speaking engagements. 

  • Cloud Native Telco Day: Automated Policy-Based Service Assurance in Cloud-Native Environments. Speakers: Sandeep Sharma, Aarna Networks and Sundar Nadathur, Intel. Application orchestration across multiple Kubernetes clusters is becoming increasingly important, but policy-based service assurance and closed loop automation for applications continue to be gaps in the industry. The talk covered an open source solution to address the gap using OPA, the popular policy engine, with EMCO, the multi-cluster orchestrator from Linux Foundation. Get the slides
  • Kubernetes on Edge Day: Nephio at the Edge. Speaker, Amar Kapadia, Aarna Networks. The talk covered how Nephio is fundamentally different from existing open source approaches, the possible integration points with other open source projects, how developers can think past the workloads to provisioning of underlying cloud infrastructure, and potential project impacts to the Kubernetes and edge ecosystems.

  • Kubernetes on Edge Day: PCEI at the EDGE. Speaker: Amar Kapadia, Aarna Networks. Abstract: The Akraino Public Cloud Edge Interface (PCEI) Blueprint is advancing its maturity and is poised to become a key tool in the developer’s toolbox for deploying K8s in a diversity of environments, including bare metal. In fact, an integration based on PCEI was just named the winner of the ETSI and LF Edge Hackathon at Edge Computing World. Get the slides
  • KubeCon + CloudNativeCon: "Implementing Private 5G Networks for Enterprises with Kubernetes" Speakers: Amar Kapadia, Aarna Networks, and Christian Huebner, Mirantis. Large-scale telecommunication wireless networks built using big iron boxes are things of the past. Amar and Christian introduced a type of private network built using 5G technology that converges numerous benefits of existing wired and wireless networks commonly in enterprise environments and orchestrating Private 5G networks.

  • KubeCon + CloudNativeCon: "Edge-Native Application Principles - Taking Your App Beyond the Cloud " from 11:55am - 12:30pm. Speakers: Amar Kapadia, Aarna Networks, and Kate Goldenring, Fermyon Technologies. The CNCF IoT Edge working group has developed a white paper that aims to define these principles. In this session we will present our progress so far and give a call to action to join the effort. Review the draft paper. Get the SlidesWatch the video.
  • Google Booth Lightning Talk: Project Nephio. Speakers: Amar Kapadia, Aarna Networks, and John Belarmic, Google. Amar and John teamed up to give a brief overview of Nephio. The Linux Foundation's Nephio Project represents an innovative and disruptive approach to open source networking and the cloud native ecosystem with Kubernetes-based cloud native intent automation. Nephio enables faster onboarding of network functions to production including provisioning of underlying cloud infrastructure with a true cloud native approach, and reduces costs of adoption of cloud and network infrastructure. 

The next event for Aarna will be the Open Networking and Edge Summit, Nephio Developer Summit, and LFN Developer & Testing Forum, Nov 15-18, Seattle, WA. Meet us there
