Deploying the New Intelligent Edge with Open Hardware, Software and Data - Wenjing Chu, Futurewei Technologies, Inc.
The fusion of edge, cloud and AI technologies holds the key to the vision of moving the Internet and cloud economy to yet untapped market segments as diverse and vast as transportation, industrials, and health care. For this vision to take shape and mature into deployment stage, openness in its key technological building blocks is crucial for the economics and long term health of the resulting systems. In this presentation, Wenjing will use real-life early deployment examples to outline the emerging architecture of the New Intelligent Edge, its main components, and argue for the necessary openness in these technological components and their interfaces. He will also discuss the opportunities for the newly launched LF Edge open source community to play an important role in achieving these ambitious goals towards openness.

Lightning Talk: Smart Home Network Security Landscape and Solutions - Armin Wasicek, Avast
The smart home aims to transform houses and buildings into digital living spaces. This transformation is fueled by technologies such as Internet-of-Things and 5G networks. Like many new waves of technology, the smart home brings benefits and risks. Today’s home automation systems already bear security flaws and vulnerabilities. A requirement for the smart home to become reality is the upgrade of residential networks to sustain new bandwidth, latency, and protocol requirements. These upgrades will increase their attack surface. As the network is a centerpiece of a smart home, it is the point to implement security measures. Leveraging big data and machine learning, new network intrusion detection solutions are specifically geared towards detecting malicious behavior in smart homes. In this talk, we will elicit the threat landscape for the emerging smart home and our vision to secure those.

Lightning Talk: Fault Management for IoT Service Abnormal Traffics with Edge Computing and Network Slicing - Yuki Kasuya, KDDI
To manage IoT service traffics is challenges for Telecoms, because traffics form several IoT devices does not behave monolithic. Actually, KDDI faced receiving abnormally traffics that were different behaviour, not like smartphone's traffics, from IoT devices. How to tackle to manage the complex IoT service traffics? Our approach is to adopt to combine Edge computing and Network slicing technologies to Fault Management(FM).

I started internal project that purpose is to dispose IoT service abnormal traffics using two approaches. (1) FM with Edge Computing, the purpose is stopping to send abnormal traffics to core network. We use NATS and collectd. (2) FM with NW Slicing, dividing abnormal traffics to a NW slice for isolation. We use open source EPC, prometheus, collectd and OPNFV.
In this presentation, I will share the above evaluations and experiences.

Securing the Smart Cities Edge with OP-TEE and Arm TrustZone - Tapio Tallgren, Nokia & Tina Tsou, Arm
Multi-Access Edge Computing (MEC) holds the promise for significant innovation and enriching our lives. But along with this innovation comes the threat of hackers- open hardware and software, third party software open vulnerabilities that can be exploited.

Within the Akraino Edge Stack Project, Nokia, Arm, & ecosystem partners have formed an edge blueprint for a Smart Cities platform called µMEC, targeted for a range of use cases. Devices based on the µMEC architecture can support sensors, connectivity protocols, etc. in different locations. As such, operating system level security is not enough. We need security for onboarding, securing data, and verifying the integrity of firmware, operating system and system software, as well as 3rd party applications.

In this session, we examine how technology such as Arm TrustZone and the OP-TEE software can be leveraged to achieve these goals.

Using Network Acceleration for an Optimized Edge Cloud Server Architecture - Ron Renwick, Netronome & My D. Truong, Packet Labs
With the rise of cloud-native principles, applications are increasingly able to take advantage of diverse, specialized and distributed infrastructure. The emergence of Edge Cloud solutions promises faster and more immersive application experiences, as well as infrastructure primitives for 5G, IoT, mobility, and more.  However, this new resource comes with space and power constraints that can only be overcome by using new disaggregated architectures that leverage network acceleration and optimally sized CPUs. The session will highlight how the capabilities unleashed by hardware offload of eBPF in edge cloud microservers will enable developers to efficiently leverage the massive amounts of data on the edge and to create next-generation real-time applications.

Distributed Big Data Network Analytics -Srinivasa Addepalli & Dileep Ranganathan, Intel
5G, SDWAN, IOT and CDN segments require massive deployment of network functions in multiple sites. Continuous operations require faster problem resolution and predictive maintenance (with AI models), which in turn require monitoring and analysis of run time metrics of infrastructure and functions. As the functions are distributed, analysis is also expected to be distributed for faster service assurance.  One of the major challenges is the operational overhead of installing and operating big data analytics infrastructure in multiple sites. In this presentation, we will describe end-to-end open source service assurance stack with Prometheus as collection service,  Kafka as messaging system and big data analytics framework consisting Hadoop, M3DB and Spark. We also will talk about how this can be deployed in multiple locations using ONAP and K8S using single pane of glass.

A Kubernetes Based Blue Print for Far Edge - Azhar Sayeed, Red Hat
Far Edge or single and dual node configurations for Edge are critical for use cases such as vRAN, uCPE and IoT gateways. Most of the discussuons todate have been, how to adopt OpenStack to run in a single or dual node configurations and how to federate using Keystone. We have previosuly seen demonstrations of this at the OpenStack Summit in Boston and at other events last year.

This presentation provides a different take at far edge blueprints. It proposes a far edge blueprint using Kubernetes only to deploy micro services and Virtual machines at edge nodes.
This presentation shows a solution using Kubernetes to address all the requirements of Far Edge, managing VMs, Containers, remote provisioning, clustering, distributed clustering and federation for easy deployment of sites.

Hardware Acceleration Strategy for Services at Edge - Qiao Fu, China Mobile
Services stay at edge are user plane services and MEC apps, which have strict requirement for latency. In the meantime, compute and network resources are quite limited at edge. Therefore, hardware acceleration is a must for edge cloud. However, currently hardware acceleration is bounded with the services so as to provide the best performance. Such scheme will breakdown the agility and cloud native features Operators are expected at edge cloud. In this presentation, we would share the strategy for hardware acceleration, and how to decouple edge services with accelerate hardware. We would address the 3 important factors for hardware acceleration decoupling, namely orchestration, decouple path, and service API. We will also introduce the work we are driving in the Rocket project in OPNFV, which focusing on hardware acceleration API definition and integration and testing.
