Scenario: Programmable Networking
Use-Case: SD-WAN/SASE 

What works for the Cloud, core and data center won’t work for Edge. The explosion of nodes increases network complexity and compounds coordination and management challenges. Network Services for the Edge will be the product of the interactions of many participating Container Network Functions (CNFs), supporting services and infrastructure resources. The interplay requires highly-dynamic and intelligent Orchestration and Automation to assure and optimize a Network Service as a whole. 

This Webinar presents an advanced Intel 5G/Edge Testbed with an SD-WAN / SASE use-case demonstrating high-level programmability of Intel’s latest Columbiaville NICs. The Testbed covers Day 1 deployment and Day 2 assurance of a complex, distributed 5G/Edge scenario in which security concerns drives dynamic configuration of NICs to optimize processing of secure packets. 

The Testbed team includes: Red Hat (https://www.redhat.com/) OpenShift infrastructure management Fortinet (https://www.fortinet.com/) FortiGate SD-WAN & SASE Keysight (https://www.keysight.com) CyPerf test agents KX (https://kx.com/) data services & analytics Intel (https://www.intel.com) Columbiaville NICs and testbed environment EnterpriseWeb (https://enterpriseweb.com/) CloudNFV e2e orchestration, SMO, LCM & iPaaS The Testbed will also incorporate open-source from the ONF (SD-CORE and SD-RAN) and Grafana Labs (Prometheus and Grafana).
