OpenShift Commons Briefing Summary

In this briefing, Red Hat's Hyde Sugiyama discussed using OpenShift & Multi-access Edge Computing for a number of cross-industry use cases ranging from IoT Robotics, Smart City, to Connected Car Network. MEC (Multi-access Edge Computing) is deployed across distributed edge network nodes rather than deployed at a centralized big data center. To run many real-time value-added service applications for each industry on MEC servers in edge network nodes where rack space is limited, we need high-density virtualization such as container and cloud-native agile solutions across multi-central offices as a virtual data center. This session covered MEC (Multi-access Edge Computing) deployment architectures for Edge PaaS and its challenges by adapting OpenShift Container Platform, SDN technology, and Switch fabric along with OpenStack NFV edge platform infrastructure across virtual central offices.

The container virtualization technology orchestrated by Kubernetes(K8s)/Openshift Container Platform is evolving by the cloud industry while OpenStack becomes the de-facto NFV platform of the telecom carrier industry. He also discussed an MEC PoC for Edge PaaS at a telecom carrier.

Our guest speaker, Red Hat's Hyde Sugiyama is Senior Principal Technologist, Telecom & NFV in Red Hat’s APAC Office of Technology. He leads the efforts on Edge PaaS (RHOCP) running on RHOSP (NFV platform) which is a new collaboration effort amongst Telcos in APAC.
