Commercial Roll-Out of Virtualized EPC and Open Source Development of Missing Telecom Features - Ashiq Khan, NTT DOCOMO & Ryota Mibu, NEC

DOCOMO has commercialized multi-vendor virtualized EPC (vEPC) in March 2016. ETSI NFV-defined Management and Orchestration (MANO) is used to perform lifecycle management of the multi-vendor vEPC nodes. Open source solutions have been used both in the MANO stack and in the platform. Taking the ETSI NFV standard specifications into account along with the experience from the commercial roll out of vEPC, a rigorous gap analysis was performed between telecom requirements and existing open source solutions. One of such requirements is the high service availability of telecom nodes which serve thousands of mobile subscribers. OPNFV Doctor project was created to meet this particular requirement. OPNFV Doctor has successfully developed and upstreamed new failure management features in OpenStack to achieve high service availability, which is explained in details in this presentation.
