"How to write an application on/for Opendaylight" - Features useful in application writing- FRM,config DS - When ODL apps wants to program the rules on switch it can commit to config DB or use RPC, tutorial will explain the steps, pros and cons of configuring rules both ways.

- Clustered DCN / Data Tree Change listener
- When applications are run in a clustered-mode, when there are multiple ODL controllers, switches could connect to any of them for load balancing purposes, then applications should consider that data being present across the cluster.

This tutorial will explain how to handle cluster-wide data. Entity ownership - Entity Ownership Services can be used by applications to find out which node is the the leader among the cluster node. This data can be used for some application logic.

Tutorial will explain all of the above through sample application.

Composing Solutions Stacks with OpenDaylight and OpenStack in OPNFV: The Fast Data Stacks Example - Frank Brockners, Cisco
NFV and virtualized high performance applications, such as video processing, require a “fast data stack” solution that provides both carrier grade forwarding performance, scalability and open extensibility, along with functionality for realizing application policies and controlling a complex network topology. This session showcases how a new solution stack (a.k.a. “scenario") which combines OpenDaylight and OpenStack is composed and stood up. We'll use a new solution stack framed around a new software forwarder ("VPP") provided by the FD.io project as example for this session. The session discusses how an evolution/change of upstream components from OpenStack, OpenDaylight and FD.io is put in place for the scenario, as well as how installers and tests need to be evolved to allow for integration into OPNFV's continuous integration, deployment and test pipeline. Special focus will be given to those components in OpenDaylight which had to be enhanced for the integration, in particular Group Based Policy.

FD.io Mini Summit - Enabling VPP IPsec Offload - Thomas Long
For security gateway or VPN applications VPP needs to encrypt/decrypt traffic. Encrypting the traffic with software only can take upwards of 95% of total packet processing time. By enabling hardware offload and CPU Optimized Instruction for encryption, VPP IPsec can show performance improvements in the region of 5/6X. Additionally, in an SDN deployment scenario VPP may be deployed on platforms with varying encryption offload capabilities. This offload support in VPP allows it to make maximum usage of the available underlying platform capabilities.

FD.io Mini Summit - Towards a Single Virtualized Data Path for VPP: Vhost Deep Dive and Analysis - Zhihong Wang
There're 2 vhost implementations in VPP currently: vhost-dpdk and vhost-vpp. This situation leads to a convergence path to achieve the best data path between host and guest.
A careful analysis has been done to compare the feature sets and performance of the 2. Also there're great efforts going on to enhance the integration of vhost-dpdk to VPP, because currently it rewrites most functions instead of calling those functions from vhost-dpdk, therefore changes in vhost-dpdk won't go directly into VPP, and the extra integration overhead is seen in VPP.

This session delivers a full comparison between vhost-dpdk and vhost-vpp, and updates the recent efforts in vhost-dpdk development and VPP integration. We propose vhost-dpdk as the single vhost for VPP, because it provides better performance and richer function support. More importantly, this aligns well with DPDK and FD.io integration mode.

FD.io Mini Summit - "Communications" vs "Networking" : FD.io and Linux Containers - Keith Burns
The benefits of user-space networking are clearly apparent as evidenced by
projects like fd.io VPP (dataplane), but also

- "ingestion" projects such as: DPDK, NETMAP, XDP/BPF
(accessing/altering kernel networking from userspace), SR-IOV etc
- and the commensurate user-space TCP stacks: fd.io TLDK, LKL, libuinet,
MTCP etc.

Compound this with what will become mainstream in the near future:

- (R)DMA approaches: 100G Infiniband networking, HP's "The Machine",
- decomposition of monolithic application design into "microservice
composition" using container technology,
- design philosophy of "12-factor applications" where REST features
prominently as an Inter-Process Communication (IPC) mechanism

and what becomes apparent in investigating these topics is the disparity
between "communications" and "networking".

In this talk we will discuss a phased approach to solving these issues
using parts "evolution" and "revolution" where we address:

- the goals of "(inter process) communication" and how we see this
impacting "networking"
- POSIX/BSD socket relevancy for IPC and possible alternate approaches
- What are the requirements that TCP fulfils in modern communications
and what might be alternatives

FD.io Mini Summit - High Speed Solutions in VPP to Accelerate Container Networking: How to and Deep Dive - Qian Q Xu
Container based solution is becoming more and more popular in academia. It remains to be a big challenge to accelerate container networking. VPP has demonstrated excellent performance on packet processing. There are several solutions in VPP targeting this problem. In order to bring the best packet I/O acceleration technology into fdio/VPP, we will share our practice and analysis on several share-memory-based approaches -- SSVM, virtio/vhost and netmap pipe. The presentation will cover the following:

- Describe how to integrate these solutions for container networking;
- Deep dive on those solutions, like feature set, ring layout,
cache/memory access pattern, notification mechanism, compatibility etc;
- Demonstrate the performance comparison under different use cases.

It’s helpful to understand the importance of leveraging a consistent/solo packet I/O engine for IPC.

FD.io Mini Summit - VPP Performance Tuning From the Perspective of Virtual Networking - Pierre Pfister
Testing VPP, or more generally getting the best out of VPP, can be challenging. And it gets even trickier when it comes to VM communications, where virtual machines or shared memory pipes are involved. This talk will focus on the many nits and tricks users and developers should be aware of to get the best out of VPP as well as to measure its performances, on both forwarding and reliability sides. Such tricks include correct CPU selection and pinning, how to convince Linux kernel to leave your CPUs alone, how to make sure that memory access does not kill your performances, etc...

In addition, this talk will be illustrated by real-life examples of how such tuning impacts virtual network performances, as well as elements from the virtio 1.0 standard which might be improved in the upcoming 1.1 version.

Evening Event: SDN Dragon's Den - Pitch Your SDN App

Do you have an SDN app idea? Give your 5-minute pitch to the "Dragons" of Networking - leading developers and technologists from OpenDaylight and the industry-at-large who will evaluate and provide feedback on the technical viability and real-world applicability for your SDN app idea. 

As you develop your idea for the Dragon's Den, keep in mind that your idea should have a clear vertical sector (service provider, banking, higher education, etc.) and a specific target user (enterprise network adminstrator, devops, database manager or an end user such as bank teller, professor, student, etc.). Remember to define why that user would want your app (what problem does it solve or what opportunity does it open). Be able to explain why an SDN approach will improve outcomes for the user as compared to existing methods for addressing the challenge. 

Join us and see if you have what it takes to impress the Networking Dragons!

Keynote: History of SDN Control at AT&T - Chris Rice, Senior Vice President of Domain 2.0 Architecture and Design at AT&T
This talk takes a look at the history of SDN control at a major service provider. From the early pioneering and implementation of Intelligent Route Service Control Point (IRSCP) technology to applications on today’s D2 network for SDN control of Layers 0-7. In 2004, we implemented one of the first version of IRSCP at scale in our network. As we deepen and grow that early commitment to SDN, we like OpenDaylight for the breadth of brownfield protocols that are supported, its model driven approach that matches our service abstraction logic, and the ability to add applications on top of the controller base. In our experience, model driven is the best practice to enable the kind of scale and feature velocity required for the layers of the global network.

Release after release, OpenDaylight has enlarged its scope, and provides more and more tools to perform actions. Although some wiki pages exists, it is hard to understand what are the best practice for OpenDaylight in term of project architecture, checkstyle… As a whole, it is important OpenDaylight stays consistent from project to project so when important updates are occurring, it’s easy to pinpoint what/where to make to modification…

Defining and sharing best practices from a common, unique and centralized stream will help developers embrace OpenDaylight’s power.

Cooperative Task Coordinator For Network State Changes - Shuva Jyoti Kar, Muthukumaran Kothandaraman, & Faiz Kothari, Ericsson
Synchronization of controller and network state requires orchestration of various controller applications. Actions taken by these applications in reaction to network state changes require careful coordination of tasks to be executed. The framework allows for achieving such reconciliation/synchronization mechanism in a non-blocking manner. This can be useful for network state change events (e.g. switch/controller restarts, port events etc.)This model serves as a blueprint for:

    1. Cooperative tasks with declarative priority assignments amongst applications.
    2. Lock-free execution of reactive tasks across applications in the face of network state change events.
    3. Minimized amount of design-time coordination and avoidance of hard-coded dependencies across applications for coordination.
   4. Optimizing performance and scale requirement for reacting to network-events.

Network Slicing for 5G Networks by Leveraging SDN - Balaji Ethirajulu, Ericsson
A digital transformation brought about through the power of connectivity is taking place in almost every industry. One telecom network will deliver services to multiple industries. With programmable and service aware networks it becomes feasible to tie network capabilities to the needs of different applications that will enable operators to provide networks as-a-service basis: the network slice.

In this Presentation, Balaji Ethirajulu will discuss how SDN/ODL controllers & NFV enable networks to be broken out from their underlying physical infrastructures so that they can, programmatically, provide connectivity as a service. He will explain how to leverage the ODL/SDN capabilities to deliver 5G services to many vertical industries.

Network Intent Composition (NIC) Be Feature Update and Demo: Intent Compilation, Lifecycle Management and Automated Mapping - Anu Mercian, Felipe Yrineu, Joon-Myung Kang, Raphael Amorim, Saket M Mahajani, Mario Sanchez & Sujata Banerjee, HPE
ODL NIC has strived to achieve a simplified northbound interface for SDN controllers using a domain specific language (DSL) that is extensible and easy to use. This presentation provides the status of the Beryllium release and discusses three unique features used and proposed for NIC.  First, the policy graph compiler introduced in NIC Be release resolves conflicts and the resulting composed graph synchronizes with the ODL MD-SAL structure, making it simpler to aggregate intents and avoid redundant compilation. This ensures non-conflicting policies are available across all the ODL existing southbound renderers.  Second, the Intent State Machine (ISM) is used to manage the state and lifecycle of the intent during deployment which provides to the user an easy way to track current status of the intent while abstracting details like intent composition and distribution. ISM has been proposed in the Be-release on NIC where this mechanism keeps track of the relation between edges on the graph and the original intents.  Finally, we introduce a novel support feature to NIC, the Label Management System (LMS), that enables automated mapping from intents specified using logical labels down to infrastructure specific attributes.  We show how the label namespace and hierarchy can be constructed in OpenStack, such that intent specifications can be created and exported to ODL NIC.

OpenDaylight's Delivery Pipelines - Daniel Farrell, Red Hat
OpenDaylight has outgrown tarball release artifacts and multi-month release frequencies. Modern users and deployments require modern tooling and access to recent features/fixes.

Downstreams like OPNFV can only test ODL as frequently as we provide testable release artifacts. As OPNFV’s integration tests approach CI, ODL’s releases must approach CD.

Complex, automated deployments like those driven by OPNFV require modern deployment tools. Upstreams like ODL need to support OPNFV installers with packages (RPMs, .debs) and configuration management tools (Ansible, Puppet).

Modern users expect welcoming first user experiences. Pre-built images (Vagrant base boxes, Docker containers) can get users in a working ODL environment quickly and easily.

Learn about new delivery requirements and how ODL Integration/Packaging is leading SDN/NFV projects in meeting them.

SDN Next Generation Integrated Architecture (SDN-NGenIA) for HEP and Exascale Global Science - Dorian Kcira, Caltech
The largest data- and network-intensive programs today, from the Upgraded High Luminosity LHC program, to the LSST and SKA astrophysics surveys, to the Joint Genome Institute and many other data-intensive emerging areas of growth, face unprecedented challenges: in global exascale data distribution, processing, access and analysis, and in the coordinated use of massive but still limited CPU, storage and network resources. In response to these challenges and opportunities for science, Caltech, working together with ESnet, Fermilab, Starlight/iCAIR, and other key laboratory, university and industry partners proposes to design and develop the first stages of the SDN Next Generation Integrated Architecture (SDN-NGenIA) for HEP and global scale science.

The overarching goal is to maximize the discovery potential of scientific collaborations through the development of revolutionary open source products and methods in the SDN, virtualization and global system operation and optimization space. This will be accomplished by exploiting and contributing to the remarkable synergy emerging between: Deeply programmable software-defined agile and adaptive network infrastructures that are emerging as  multi-service multi-domain network “operating systems” interconnecting next generation Science DMZs, and the systems developed by the data intensive science programs harnessing global workflow, scheduling and data management systems. While the initial focus will be on the challenging LHC use case, the products developed will be general, and apply to many fields of data intensive science. These will be informed by the LSST and bioinformatics/genomics use cases, which will be explored during the latter part of the project.

We will construct autonomous, intelligent site-resident services that dynamically interact with network-resident services, and with the science programs’ principal data distribution and management tools, to request or command network resources in support of high throughput petascale to exascale workflows, using:

  1. smart middleware to interface to SDN-orchestrated data flows over network paths with guaranteed bandwidth all the way to a set of high performance end-host data transfer nodes (DTNs),

  2. protocol agnostic SDN-based QoS and traffic shaping services at the site egress that will provide stable, predictable data transfer rates, and auto-configuration of data transfer nodes, and  

  3. host- and site agent systems coupled to machine learning methods

Specific work areas include: (1) deep site orchestration among virtualized clusters, storage subsystems and subnets to successfully co-schedule CPU, storage and network resources; (2) science-program designed site architectures, operational modes, and priorities adjudicated across multiple network domains and among multiple virtual organizations; (3) seamlessly extending end-to-end operation across both extra-site and intra-site boundaries through the use of next generation Science DMZs; (4) funneling massive sets of streams to DTNs at the site edge hosting petascale buffer pools configured for flows of 100 Gbps and up, exploiting state of the art data transfers where possible; and (5) unsupervised and supervised machine learning and modeling methods to drive the optimization of end-to-end workflow involving terabyte to multi-petabyte datasets.

At the core of SDN-NGenIA is an OpenDaylight controller using Application Level Traffic Optimization (ALTO) and a Min-max Fair Resource Allocation algorithm-set under development together with the group of Y. Yang et al. at Yale.

The accumulated knowledge of this development program also will serve to inform the design of the following generations of distributed petabit/sec systems, including continental scale instruments such as SKA, and the exascale computing systems of the next decade harnessing zettabyte datasets.

Service Function Chaining: From Specifications to Implementations to Integration - Brady Johnson & Joel Halpern, Ericsson
Introducing new technologies in today's tumultuous tech industry is not an easy proposition. There are those who write a specification (IETF, ETSI, etc) with the hopes that it will be accepted and somebody will adopt and implement it, but they end up in being just another spec. Then, there are those who create an OpenSource project with very clear preliminary intentions, but without a backing specification, they can quickly lose direction as the contributing members diversify. A very powerful, innovative model to introduce new technologies is to simultaneously create a specification and supporting OpenSource implementation. As the specification matures, the OpenSource implementation can evolve, allowing those interested to try the new technology in their labs and see the real benefits of what is being proposed and to see what parts of the specification wont work or need to be improved.

Open-O - Marc Cohn, The Linux Foundation & Chris Donley, Huawei
OPEN-O integrate both SDN-O and NFV-O to provide the end to end network service orchestration, in the case of vCPE/vBRAS, Enterprise, VPN et al, it need to configure broadband and enterprise access by SDN-O(orchestrator), virtual network function like vCPE/vPE router via NFV-O, and VPN tenant connection through DC-O. And one global "O" is proposed to coordinate two "O"s. OOP (OPEN-O Project) has designed a hierarchical "O" to facilitate the deployment. Since two "O"s could share some common modules, two data models Yang and Tosca will be translated between or within each "O", so one open source project would be considered to be proposed.Starting from NFVO which could work with multiple generic VNF Managers, in Openstack, SDN controller (ODL, et al.), and Virtual Resrouce Manager (Openstack, Vmware et al.) to deploy virtual network function.

Containers in an SDN / NFV World - Frederick Kautz, Red Hat & Ivan Coughlan, Intel
In this talk, we discuss container integration with OpenDaylight (ODL) on both bare-metal and OpenStack. Topics include the current state of integration, future use cases and what gaps are present that prevents us from implementing those use cases now.

Significant Container and VM orchestration and SDN integration gaps exist impacting:
  • Network performance
  • Resource utilisation
  • Leveraging of existing SDN/NFV infrastructure
In respect to networking, we propose the following:
  • In all cases, support libnetwork, and CNI APIs
  • Bare-metal container integration with ODL
  • Using OpenStack Kuryr to network bare-metal containers on OpenStack
  • Using OpenStack Kuryr to network containers in a VM using VLAN trunking



Typical use cases to be covered include containers connecting with ODL, containers running in a VM provisioned by an IaaS software stack and containers for VNFs.

A Generalization of the OpenStack Networking Model for an Implementation of an L2-VPN MEF Compliant SD VPN Service - Ariel Noy & David Goldberg, HPE
A strong analogy between the network models of Neutron and SD-VPN is presented.

Using this analogy, a MEF compliant SD-VPN service was implemented while leveraging the generic network virtualization infrastructure of NetVirt in ODL.

The resulting VPN service offers L2 and L3 connectivity between geographically remote locations each based on a local OpenFlow switch.

A mapping service is used in order to allow information exchange between these locations for the purpose of MAC address, IP address and route distribution.

The sites are interconnected by an overlay network carried on top of an arbitrary IP network.

The presented solution allows for a MEF compliant SD-VPN service without dependency on technologies such as MPLS, strongly simplifying this process.

OpenDaylight as a Fun Tool for Hobbyists & Hackerspaces - Patrick Laurin, Inocybe Technologies
OpenDaylight is usually seen as a huge and complex tool, part of a global reality shift for network providers, telecoms and cloud industries. But what about that hobbyist kid that loves to hack around software and electronics? He's proud to use things like Arduino and Raspberry Pi. He's proud to share his work on Github and backup his photos in his own private cloud. He's even running his personal blog in a Docker container. Why isn't this kid hacking around OpenDaylight? I think that OpenDaylight has the potential to be explored and used by hackerspaces communities and the common hobbyist. Those people are often great sources for innovation and game-changing ideas. The goal of this presentation is to show that OpenDaylight can used as a simple and fun tool and that it can benefit by reaching a more global audience.

Evolution of Software Defined Networking in Google’s Network Infrastructure - Vijoy Pandey, Google
Google has long been a pioneer in distributed computing and data processing, and we’ve known that great computing infrastructure like this requires great networking technology. For the past decade we have been building our own network hardware and software to connect all of the servers in our datacenters together, and also to connect our datacenters with each other, with Software Defined Networking principles in mind.

This talk walks through the evolution of Google’s SDN-based networking infrastructure, from building an SDN-based WAN (B4), to allocating wide area bandwidth amongst thousands of individual applications based on centralized policy management (BwE), to creating building-scale data center fabrics (Jupiter). We will discuss how technologies were cross leveraged in building these networks, the operational challenges faced, and the lessons learned.

A key component of the AT&T Domain 2.0 Architecture is the SDN Controller. Extending beyond packet forwarding, the SDN Controller is the brain that instantiates the networking service logic. AT&T has developed a service logic interpreter as an application on top of Opendaylight to meet the needs for flexible service definition and re-configuration. Using a domain specific language based on Directed Graphs , AT&T has implemented a model driven application on top of the ODL platform that allows us to implement the AT&T controller vision and to enable service designers to create complex solutions within the ECOMP framework. The talk will cover a brief overview of the service logic interpreter language, the graphical development environment for the service logic and examples of AT&T service provider use cases on Opendaylight.

SFC & Netvirt Application Coexistence in NFV - Brady Johnson, Ericsson & Andre Fredette, Red Hat
Typically ODL applications that render to southbound OpenFlow capable switches assume they have complete ownership of all OpenFlow tables on the switch being programmed. The assumption is that if it's necessary for another application hosted by the same ODL controller to program flows, then that application do so on another switch, and packets will be passed back-and-forth between the switches. An example of this is the GBP+SFC integration proof of concept implemented in the ODL Lithium release. GBP controlled the endpoint groups in its own set of switches, while SFC controlled the service chaining in its own, separate set of switches. This worked ok until we wanted to integrate SFC and GBP into OPNFV. The OpenFlow switches are now controlled by OpenStack, and there will be 1 switch per compute node, meaning multiple ODL applications now need to share the same OpenFlow switch.

OpenDaylight’s Evolution to Commercial-Grade Software Defined Networking - Mathieu Lemay, Inocybe Technologies
OpenDaylight is much more than just another open source software networking project. In only a few years it has become the cornerstone of SDN deployments around the globe, and a leader in the Open Source networking field. It has become critical to ensure that OpenDaylight software itself is managed and deployed with a high level of integrity, robustness, and ‘commercial strength’. Because it’s so easy to get started with ODL as a Proof of Concept, software developers and network engineers can be tempted to take shortcuts to get something rolled out quickly. By following a structured, professional Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) process for ODL, users can mitigate potential disasters and avoid costly do-overs, while greatly accelerating the path to a production quality, commercial-grade deployment. Mathieu Lemay, CEO of Inocybe, will discuss how to create a robust OpenDaylight environment built around specific use cases.

Integration of Kubernetes and OpenDaylight - Prem Sankar & Faseela K., Ericsson
Kubernetes is a well-known container orchestration framework and is gaining more adoption as container deployments are in the rise. The container deployment models are complex due to the fact that workloads are being deployed in a mix of VM, nested containers and bare-metal. Network is a key part of these deployments and one can imagine the complexity.

In order to ease, ODL can be used for network provisioning, orchestration and other network admin related activities. Also Openstack and Kubernetes integration enables ODL to address the above problems in a much simpler way. This talk would cover integration of Kubernetes with ODL and would include models to manage Kubernetes network model, docker network model (CNM), integration with framework like Kuryr and relevance to NFVi layer. This session would include a demo that showcases this integration.

Scalability & High Availability for ODL By Distributed Management of Functional Roles - Tali Ben-Meir & Gideon Kaempfer , HPE
In order to enable pooling of multiple ODL controllers for the purpose of high availability and scalability we present a generic mechanism for distributed management of functional roles.

Example roles are the responsibility for certain resources such as OpenFlow switches, the responsibility for handling events related to IDs in various ID spaces, such as MAC or IP addresses, or the responsibility for health monitoring of system components such as switches or VNF's.

Roles may be distributed among ODL controllers belonging to the same cluster as well as ODL controllers in different clusters.

The definition of the roles allows for controller load sharing and high availability is achieved by defining backup controller instances per role shard.

Tables stored in a data store of choice define the roles and shards and are managed by an elected leader per role (coordinators).

FAST: Simplifying SDN Programming using a Data-Driven Function Store - Gao Kai, Tsinghua University
We introduce FAST (fine-grained, automatic state tracking and execution), to provide a new function store abstraction in OpenDaylight.  Implemented as a shim layer on top of the native OpenDaylight MD-SAL datastore API, FAST provides automatic data-dependency tracking, automatic re-execution upon data changes, and re-execution scheduling. We will demonstrate the simplicity of programming using FAST (e.g., substantial simplification of implementing intents), present its design choices, and discuss potentials to extend FAST to provide additional benefits such as data provenance, through which one can trace the origin of mis-configurations, and shadow application diagnosis, through which one may test applications in a virtualized setting without affecting the real network. We will also discuss the limitations, extensions of FAST and seek collaboration from the community.

LISP Flow Mapping for SDN & NFV Use Cases - Vina Ermagan, Cisco
Locator/ID Separation Protocol is a next generation routing architecture with native support for scalable and programmable network overlays. LISP consists of a data plane capable of L2 and L3 encapsulation, and a decoupled and distributed control plane that stores/serves the mappings of virtual-to-physical network addresses with associated forwarding policies. Network programmability is achieved by programming forwarding policies, such as service chaining and traffic engineering in the mapping database. Data plane nodes fetch and enforce these policies on demand.

This presentation provides an overview of the ODL LISP Flow Mapping project, including its new features in Boron. Furthermore, as the project is now in mature state, we will discuss a subset of its SDN and NFV use cases, and briefly demonstrate how the ODL users and community can leverage this project to enable these use cases.

OpenDaylight Enabled Management and Orchestration Layer for Multi-Service SDN - Cengiz Alaettinoglu, Packet Design
Today's networks carry many different services and applications. For example, service provider customers with time-sensitive financial trading applications need short-delay paths that may need to be segregated from other customers. Residential customers consuming over-the-top (OTT) services like Netflix and YouTube have video quality requirements that if not met may lead to dissatisfaction and churn. To accommodate different service types like these, as well as variable demands and failure conditions, the ability to provision software-defined network resources dynamically enables operators to minimize over-provisioning of network resources and better control capex outlays. This presentation will explore the critical elements for SDN management and orchestration in multi-service networks, plus new protocols and OpenDaylight developments that enable end-to-end service overlays in the WAN.

Vision of a Future Ideal Integration (build) Architecture to Never Have Any Build Failures - Michael Vorburger, Red Hat
We kick off a number of sometimes fairly long running build jobs on each change (verify, distribution, validate), yet we cannot always reliably detect mechanical build failing problems such as e.g. what happened inhttps://git.opendaylight.org/gerrit/#/c/43594/ (a parent pom.xml change which broke the build of downstream projects depending on it - despite getting a Verified+1 Build Successful from jenkins-releng), or Checkstyle rule changes which need a manual process to gauge build impacts (why can we not just raise any kind of proposed change and see ALL impacts on Gerrit, automatically?), and probably other kind of changes (please edit this and insert specific examples of other limitation you have run into?).

One possible solution to this problem could be to move away from continuously integrating all ODL projects every day (by way of Maven's SNAPSHOT concept) and move to completely stable fixed release artefacts; see various emails on the lists re. "Fast and/or Phased", e.g. https://lists.opendaylight.org/pipermail/discuss/2016-July/006751.html. One of the risks of that kind of approach is typically that projects will start to lag behind, and while stable in the present, have to eat the cost of adapting to changes in the future when they upgrade?

Another possible solution to this problem could be to look more seriously at enforcing API baseline contracts kind of tools (OSGi-based for ODL; but there are others too) - but IMHO it's very hard or impossible to cover things like pom.xml changes or Checkstyle rules with the existing tools in that space, which are typically focused on Java API changes. This kind of stuff is probably still relevant for automated API compatibility checks across releases, but may not be the right answer for fast in-development change management.

Could another solution for this area be to simply continuously integrate the *entire* ODL caboodle for *every* change - but still do this so fast that it's viable in practice? Imagine you would be guaranteed to always see all build failure impacts incl. broken Maven, compilation, tests etc. of any change on all dependant downstream projects (which are on opendaylight.org; external projects should use release and not SNAPSHOT artifacts, and if they do use SNAPSHOT there is little we can do about them). 

To even dream about this, the only realistic path is probably that a build of a Change on Jenkins would have to be able to re-build incrementally only what changed and what that change impacts - incl. autom. taking dependencies impacts into account! What would need to happen to make this possible?

This is intended to be a high level "let's dream" vision type of session. In the initial discussion we should not let ourselves be held back with "that's not possible with Maven" kind of limitations, but establish an ideal goal, and then back-track to what would have to be done to achieve that goal. If that's another build technology (Gradle.org? BuckBuild.com? Even more exotic fruits?), no harm in dreaming about it together for the first half of the discussion. In the second half, we could try to break down what this would mean in practice if together we were to do anything about it, and who would like to fund what portions of such an effort.

Unifying BGP Implementations/Needs - Colin Dixon, Brocade
As I understand it, we have at least 4 different places we're using BGP: bgpcep, atrium, snmp4sdn, and vpnservice. I believe that atrium and vpnservice use Quagga, while snmp4sdn uses a forked version of bgpcep. It would be good to figure out if there was a way to allow all the projects to (at least optionally) consume the bgpcep implementation and maybe also create a simple way to switch between Quagga and bgpcep in keeping with our modular design.

Developing IoT Solutions with OpenDaylight - Lionel Florit & John Burns, Cisco
What governs the IoT/IoE space currently is a state of fragmentation: deployments focus on verticals implemented in silos. A way to move from today's fragmented intranets of things to the Internet of Everything is by a standardized middleware. After some confusion, the middleware standardization efforts are bearing fruit. This is the year where we see the release of several middleware standards which can be the foundation for cross vertical IT solutions. In this presentation, we will explore the role of the middleware, understand how it works through the oneM2M example, and how it can be deployed in real life, using an implementation (IoTDM) running on OpenDayLight.

To overcome this obstacle, research organizations and local telecommunications carriers have been investigating and analyzing the feasibility of transport SDN technology. This talk dishes on the latest trend in Korea telecommunications carriers and the status of their transport SDN technology.

ONF Project Atrium Enterprise for ODL - Dr. Bithika Khargharia, Extreme Networks; Gert Vanderstraeten & Gunter Leeb, Microsoft; and Dave Lenrow, Huawei
Project Atrium Enterprise is Atrium’s Enterprise distribution that tackles SDN adoption in a segment most underserved – the Enterprise. In concert with Microsoft IT it brings SDN to address some fundamental challenges that Enterprise IT organizations face today with a shift in the digital behavior of a changing global digital workforce. Round- the-globe, round-the-clock digital collaboration is a given for the increasingly mobile worker whose life is defined by social on or off campus experiences. How does Enterprise IT provide them the right best-in-class campus experience within budget? Atrium Enterprise addresses these challenges in a multi-phase development effort. In this first phase it addresses the Enterprise Collaboration experience by developing to IMTC specifications - a QoE (Quality of Experience) service and an Automated Diagnostics and Reporting service for real-time sensitive Enterprise Productivity Applications. The solution provides integrated wired-wireless support, a choice of Openflow 1.3 data planes and seamless brownfield migration. To maintain the social experience on campus within budget it brings internet-first connectivity to the Enterprise. At each campus connected by the Enterprise WAN, it drops non time sensitive internet traffic off the high-cost managed WAN on to low-cost local internet connections. This reduces the demand on WAN resources giving IT the opportunity to invest the ensuing WAN cost savings in best-in-class on-premise Collaboration experience.

OpenDaylight Beyond Networking - Maddison Long, Inocybe Technologies
Currently OpenDaylight is narrowly marketed as a software-defined networking technology ecosystem. However, OpenDaylight is much more than network innovation; it is the Linux of Connected Things – an ecosystem with projects from IoT to Smart Infrastructures that can be used for anything that can be modeled and controlled. OpenDaylight has the potential to be the foundation for Open Smart City and Smart Building initiatives – not strictly linked to the SDN market.

OpenDaylight Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence (MILA) Framework - YuLing Chen, Cisco
In recent years, Machine Learning in networking and SDN have attracted interests from both the academia and the industry. Most solutions ship the data out of the SDN controller and analyze them using specialized tools. In this presentation, we present a solution that creates a Machine Learning framework (MILA) on top of the leading SDN controller OpenDaylight (ODL). By providing machine learning capabilities directly from the controller, the framework simplifies the intelligent SDN applications creation and enables the controller to continuously learn from the data generated in the network.

In this presentation, we will go through typical machine learning use cases in SDN, explain the scalable MILA architectural design, and present a demo that leverages the framework and ODL Time Series Data Repository to apply Machine Learning algorithms and generate the valuable data insights.

Magellan: Generating Multi-Table Pipelines from Datapath-Oblivious Algorithmic SDN Policies - Y. Richard Yang, Yale/Tongji
The emergence of multi-table pipelining as a key feature of next-generation SDN datapath models requires tools to automate the usage of this feature, and the objective of Magellan is to achieve the goal: automate the usage of multi-table datapath from datapath-oblivious algorithmic SDN policies. Magellan introduces two modules: a table designer to automatically generate a pipeline specification, and a table populater to populate the tables, during both static analysis and at runtime. We will discuss the issues that we have encountered when implementing Magellan in OpenDaylight, in particular the issue of how to proactively explore a program to generate its full content. We will also discuss additional issues and seek feedback and collaboration from the community.

Keynote Industry Panel: Doing SDN at Scale - Tom Bie, Tencent; Brian Freeman, AT&T; Vijoy Pandey, Google; & Nitin Serro, Serro; Moderated by Neela Jacques, OpenDaylight
“SDN doesn't scale!”

We keep hearing this, many people seem to have held off deploying an SDN infrastructure due to this belief, but is it true? To answer this question we first have to define what we mean by "scale" - Network Elements? Traffic? Routing Changes? Who better to explore than the people who have architected and deployed some of the highest-scale SDN environments across telco, enterprise and research networks. They will talk about what scalability means to them, the challenges they have faced, and the learnings each of us can leverage for our own environments.

I'd like to share some ongoing work I'm doing to write tests in netvirt's aclservice-impl & elanmanager-impl in a new "end2end" test style for offset 2 functional modules, at least some of which lack tests of real value IMHO (this effort does not target offset 0/offset 1 infrastructure framework projects). The approach in this style is pure Java JUnit, pure standalone Java (non-OSGi; so not really like a full-blown IT, as it's often not really needed IMHO), and non-CSIT. These tests should focus on simple testing of your bundles' API and their expected effect / outcome on the system, not their internal implementation details. Some of the dependant services in other modules are typically stubbed. Mocking is fairly limited or avoided all together. The internal beans of one bundle are all used together however. This is much more than your typical unit test, as those would, in theory at least, test each internal class separately; and use mocking, sometimes perhaps too extensively. Wiring of all bundle internal beans is through post-BP @Inject (successfully explored in netvirt), discussed in more details in another session. Conceptually this kind of test style is thus positioned between unit tests and IT/CSIT. Interested in feedback from attendees if they think this is worthwhile pursuing in general (not limited to netvirt), and see if this inspires you to use the same approach in your projects, or hear your objections. Session may include some live coding. It would also be good to agree on a name for this style (other than my only tentative "end2end" convention).

SFC & VPN integration - Manuel Buil, Juan M. Fernandez, Prem Sankar, Brady Johnson
As of today, it is not possible to integrate SFC with VPNs. There are several things missing and it would be great to brainstorm a plan about how to address these problems in order to have Netvirt’s VPN Service integrated with SFC ready in Carbon release. Probably the most important gap is modeling the entry point and the exit point of a chain, so that for example packets can be sent to the VPN service once they exit the chain. Today the entry and exit points are provided by the classifier, so it must be also considered as part of the integration with Netvirt’s VPN.

Simple Java Map interface on top of MD-SAL lists - Colin Dixon, Brocade
It would be nice to be able to pass the path (instance identifier) to a YANG list in the MD-SAL and have that return an MD-SAL-backed Java map that would listen to updates and translate put/deletes into appropriate transactions into the MD-SAL. See BUG-5365 for more details.

Federation - Guy Sela & Gideon Kaempfer, HPE
The idea would be to have the ability to federate events coming from MD-SAL to ODL instances outside of the local cluster. The first concrete use case would be to federate NetVirt such that Neutron networks on different sites (OpenStack clouds) could be seamlessly interconnected at L2 or L3 over VXLAN tunnels just like compute hosts are connected within a single site. The difference between this proposal and other proposals from the past is that we seek to have a way to perform ordered messaging between ODL clusters with the possibility of transforming information before/after federating it.

SFC Carbon Feature List - Juan M. Fernandez, Manuel Buil, Brady Johnson
Along Boron release, we have discussed about several features and enhancements we would like to introduce in SFC project, now it is time to start talking about what we can introduce in Carbon release. Here there is a list of features we have discussed so far and that we might probably extend during the Design Forum:
  • SFC Genius integration and coexistence with other Genius based and non-Genius based applications (there is a topic about that proposed by our colleagues in Netvirt project)
  • VPN integration (there is another SFC topic to talk about that in more detail)
  • SFC Proxy
  • Load Balancing & Failover, Mirror/Receive-only SFs, Bypass of Service Functions/Offload
  • Bare-metal SFs support
  • Hierarchical Service Chaining
