Adaptive Frequency Control based Energy Savings & Memory Resiliency with Closed Loop Automation

Date: Monday 30 September 2019
Time: 16:30 – 18:30
Room: Seminar Room 5

Summary 

Transformation of network softwarization towards 5G inherently requires satisfying the requirements across a broad scope of verticals like virtualized infrastructure, Internet of Things (IoT), edge computing, visual cloud, etc., while maintaining Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE) criteria required to satisfy various network slice constraints. It’s increasingly difficult to consider isolated information from applications or infrastructure or streaming telemetry without correlating or providing the context based service assurance for each of the network slices. The demonstrations showcase real-time closed loops in Kubernetes environment with Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) based applications that (1) adapt to memory reliability errors demonstrating resiliency and (2) provide power savings by scaling CPU core frequencies based on packets processed with a custom algorithm. The demos show telemetry generated by the platform, which is then correlated, used to generate alerts, generate policy decisions which are then used to provision platform resources in a real-time control loop.
