Re: Anyone know what this is?

Chris, can we put this on the agenda for the next TOC meeting please.

I'd like the TOC to have a clear understanding of what's happening with the Cloud-native Network Functions effort, as it's very unclear at the moment.  See also the thread below.

Thanks

That's a mistake, then. I will make clear the problem to them and ask them to get my signoff first on future submissions.

Thanks for clarifying Dan

There are several proposed Kubecon talks (e.g. for Barcelona in May) on Cloud-native Network Functions, some by CNCF-paid contractors, which do not portray it in that light.

Here's background on CNFs. In short, it's a demonstration and marketing term for how to use Kubernetes as a substrate for the telco use case. There's no project associated with it, and a key consideration is how to support telcos without "breaking" Kubernetes's success for enterprise users. There are no actual upstream changes or new projects that we're proposing.

The nomenclature is a bit off but this is a CNCF funded effort / demo, not an official CNCF project per se.

Hi Alexis, Chris

I recently noticed that CNFS claim to be “in the CNCF”.


I think this is the first I’ve heard of this.  Am I asleep at the wheel?  Was this ever passed by the TOC?  Where exactly does it fit in?

There is a CNFS project in the CNCF GitHub:


But it’s not listed as a sandbox (or any other) CNCF project?

What am I missing here?

Thanks for any guidance.

If so then I assume this article is all a set of misquotes by the journalist:

Definitely, there's a lot more to come. We're also hoping to get a bunch of telcos and their vendors engaged and making improvement to the Testbed so that it becomes a real, collaborative open source project.

Fwiw I think this is pretty cool, but I suspect a lot of parties interested in this comparison would also want to see latency & jitter info added to slide 9. Is that in the pipeline Dan?
