NearbyOne offers a single pane of glass to automate the edge and streamline deployments, including Infrastructure, Network Functions and Applications. And this includes a self-service Marketplace that can be populated using an Open Onboarding Framework. Now, it also offers a managed Kubernetes stack powered by Smart Edge Open, getting access to a catalog of software from Intel Network Builders partners already pre-integrated.

David Carrera, Chief Technology Officer, Nearby Computing

Driven by the growing need to get data and applications closer to end-users, edge cloud will be composed of large number of compute nodes—scaled down and located in proximity to end-users and machines, that delivers immersive experience. Capgemini will share its experience in deploying the smart edge solution to diverse use cases.

Masood Amin, Vice President and Head of Product Management , Software Frameworks, Capgemini

In this session, Haseeb Budhani, Rafay's CEO, will discuss Rafay's partnership with Intel and the Rafay + Intel® Smart Edge integrations that enable high-performance containerized workloads to be deployed across hundreds or thousands of dedicated or multi-tenant Kubernetes clusters deployed across public cloud, datacenter and telco networks at scale -- all from a single pane of glass.

C++ SIMD class library allows developers to write succinct and portable code, portable across multiple generations of Xeons, while still utilizing varying SIMD capabilities in processors for intensive workloads such as virtualized RAN. In this session, we will show how to leverage the library, and the significant reduction in lines of code achieved in high performance Intel FlexRAN software.

Nicolas Chautru, Software Engineering Technical Leader, FlexRAN Software Team, Intel

Intel FlexRAN’s modular, API driven and highly portable software architecture enables disaggregated RAN software building blocks enabling innovative Usecases such as ORAN, Network Slicing and Smart Edge Solutions. This presentation will highlight some of the details of technical implementation overview with industry success stories.

Biraja Prasad Mahapatra, Director Business Development, Radisys

5G Mobile network operators are keen to launch new revenue-generating Service Level Agreements (SLA) service offerings for both enterprises and consumers. This session will explore how developers can use Intel SDKs, AI/ML inferencing libraries, and inherent Intel Xeon features to create high-performant value added AI-based RAN applications without the need for a dedicated AI chip. As a demonstrated example, the session will also highlight a Network Slice Radio Resource Manager (NSRRM) xApp in an ORAN-compliant RAN Intelligent Controller (RIC) integrated with a Cloud Native, Open, virtualized RAN. Both the xApp and the L2 application in the RAN stack are powered by AI/ML leveraging Xeon features, Intel AI tools and SDK to support SLA adherence for multiple slices.

Implementing AI/ML framework into network and security applications is a critical strategy for network transformation and preventing cyberattacks surrounding enterprise, edge, and cloud networking. The challenge is to incorporate additional AI/ML capabilities into network and security workloads without sacrificing performance and achieving it without impacting the total cost of ownership. This session discusses successful examples of incorporating AI into firewall applications that resulted in higher performance while using hardware and software capabilities readily available in virtualized environments based on 3rd generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors.

David Lu, Platform Solutions Architect, Enterprise and Cloud Division, Intel

Zero Trust allows organizations to protect employees and users accessing organizations’ data and applications now distributed across on-prem data centers, edge, and cloud. Digital transformation, post-pandemic new normal, and ever-increasing cybersecurity threat are few of the drivers. Protecting credentials (key, token, etc.) is critical in Zero Trust implementations. This session introduces use of confidential computing enabled by Intel Secure Guard Extension (Intel SGX) to harden both Zero Trust Network Access (VPNaaS) in Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) and Zero Trust security in service mesh.

Edge applications have many complex deployment scenarios and challenging needs for management. Edge orchestrators need to be highly extensible to handle these complexities at scale. Some of the examples of such workloads include Orange Telecom Use Case of Autonomous Vehicle workload migration and 5GC. In this talk we’ll examine how Orange Telecom leveraged EMCO(Edge Multi-Cluster Orchestrator) to orchestrator and manage Autonomous Vehicle use case. We’ll also examine other applications like 5GC, their complexities and how EMCO can be used to solve their edge orchestration requirements.
