How is Kubernetes Leading the Game in Enabling NFV for Cloud Native?

Read this article to know about how NFV core is driven by cloud-native projects, lead by Kubernetes to the orchestration of most of the projects plus managing containerized network functions.

Analysis: How are Faster Networks Advancing the New-Age Datacenters

Providing lower latency up to 10 microseconds is a new challenge for operators to enable new technologies in the market. For this to happen, data center need to complement the higher broadband network. It forms the base digital innovation to happen in future.

Architecting Edge for Self-driving Cars with OpenStack and ETSI Open Source MANO

Involvement of leading open infrastructure projects such as OpenStack and OSM as MANO suggest that such solutions are possible using open-source projects with the added benefit of controlling developing infrastructure costs.

Value of NFV for Telecom and Edge Computing

L8istSh9y Podcast and Calsoft Inc. collaborated and had a discussion on the value of NFV for Telecom and Edge Computing. The guests invited were Pavan Gupta and Kiran Divekar, Software Architects, at Calsoft Inc. the podcast was hosted by Stephen Spector (Senior Director Digital Marketing, EdgeGravity by Ericsson) & Rob Hirschfeld (CEO, RackN).

Where the Cloud Native Approach is Taking NFV Architecture for 5G

This blog explains where cloud-native approach in NFV been this year and where it’s headed.

Evolvement of Kubernetes to Manage Diverse IT Workloads

This article talks about how Kubernetes has emerged from container orchestration platform to manage complex workloads in AI and Machine Learning Stacks, Managing containers in NFV architecture and handling hardware GPU resources.

DPDK in 3 Minutes or Less…

DPDK (Data Plane Development Kit) came along. It said, “from today on wards there is going to be just one agency, itself, following just one rule book, a dpdk library”, irrespective of what the requestor’s end goal is. All packets, needing network functionality processing (again, it means routing, switching, firewall allow/deny etc),

Performance Benchmarking of OpenStack-based VIM and VNFs for NFV Environments

This post focuses on a case study of evaluation of NFV architecture components i.e. VNFs (virtual network functions) and VIM (virtual infrastructure manager) to deliver best-in-class performance to end users and offer a valid approach to active testing.

DevOps in NFV: Assuring Health of Service Chains and 5G Network Slices

This post is about how DevOps methodology is implemented in 5G network slices and service chains for active service assurance and monitoring by vendors like Intel, Netrounds,, Arctos labs with the help of ETSI’s Open Source MANO (OSM).

How NFV Deployments are Driven by Open Source Projects

Here’s how open source is helping advance network optimization to support emerging technologies. There is a growing demand for efficient networks with low latency and high bandwidth to support innovations such as autonomous cars, connected devices, machine learning, augmented and virtual reality, and real-time analytics.
