Dynamic Forward Error Correction (FEC) for SD-WAN

In this session we will demonstrate how Dynamic Forward Error Correction (FEC) can be used to protect the user traffic from packet loss in the underlay network. We will detect the network loss and improve the user experience by dynamically adjusting the amount of error correction, while optimizing bandwidth consumption.

Universal adaptive core

BNG Control/User Plane Separation: pathway to a Universal Adaptive Core

The next generation Nokia BNGs support a disaggregated model where control (CP) and user plane (UP) function are separated using a CUPS architecture. The BNG CP function runs in the CMG, which provides a universal SMF, while the UP is the Nokia 7750 SR or VSR.

This demo shows how Mobile and Residential sessions (IPoE and PPPoE) are created through the use of PFCP (3GPP TS 29.244) and PFCP extensions (BBF TR-459) on the Sx-N4 interfaces between the CP and UP. You will also see how a new BNG UPF is added into the network (PFCP association), how a single CP can be used to handle sessions created on various UPs (FP3,FP4,vFP,mobile) and how this eases deployments and enhances flexibility through the use of a centralized configuration and pool management (ODSA). The demo also shows intra CP-VM redundancy (N:K), session and UPF scaling.
