The telecoms industry is undergoing the biggest change in its history as Communication Service Providers (CSPs) move to new DevOps-like delivery models enabled by latest advances in technology such as Network Function Virtualization (NFV) or Cloud in general. OpenStack and other open source projects provide a solid foundation for building next generation Telco Clouds, but building a carrier-grade solution takes more than just picking up and assembling building blocks.
In this session, we will present a top-down view from Telco cloud-based network service management strategies and the mapping to the underlying infrastructure services provided by OpenStack, based on a real-world implementation. We will outline the concepts of policy-based closed loop management of end-to-end network services, supported by examples, and we will discuss the role of service- and application level monitoring in this policy-based approach.
We will discuss how service-level policies can be broken down and mapped to capabilities provided in OpenStack today in a pluggable architecture, leveraging orchestration technology such as Heat or monitoring in Ceilometer. Based on the presented as-is solution, we will also consider potential future enhancements to OpenStack components, inspired by Telco use cases.
