The full agenda is still being finalized, but sessions will include:

ONAP and the K8s Ecosystem: A Converged Edge Application & Network Function Platform
Speaker: Ramki Krishnan, VMware

The edge computing industry is increasingly using cloud technologies for seamless migration of workloads across edges and clouds. For seamless mobility workloads, K8s is a key requirement for all CSPs. Also, K8s is can be a good workload orchestrator for all deployment types (VMs, containers and functions). This panel will discuss existing work and novel ways of realizing a converged network function & edge computing application platform across distributed clouds using the extensibility of the K8s ecosystem. This work is currently happening in ONAP as part of the Edge Automation effort and we see this impactful to other open source efforts such as Akraino, K8s Edge WG etc.

OpenNESS (Open Network Edge Services Software)
Speaker: Neal Oliver, Intel

OpenNESS, the easy button to deploy innovative services at the Edge. OpenNESS is an open source reference toolkit that makes it easy to move applications from the Cloud to the Network and On-Premise Edge.

O-RAN - The Road to 5G Openness
Speaker: Christos Kolias, Principal Research Scientist and Orange Expert at Orange Silicon Valley

The O-RAN Alliance, which was founded by operators, is about opening up the interfaces in a Radio Access Network. Future RANs will be built on a foundation of virtualized network elements, white-box hardware and standardized interfaces that fully embrace O-RAN's core principles of intelligence and openness. Open interfaces also enable multi-vendor deployments, enabling a more competitive and vibrant supplier ecosystem. Similarly, open source software and hardware reference designs enable faster, more democratic and permission-less innovation.
