In this talk, Kyle and Frederick will present Network Service Mesh, a new open source project built to enable cloud-native NFV and container network functions.

Network Service Mesh (NSM) is a new project being built to enable vendors and operators to envision and realize a cloud-native future for Network Function Virtualization, or NFV. With 5G on the horizon, moving network functions from virtual to container platforms will be critical to handling the massively increased traffic load. Network Service Mesh is a recent open source project, having begun development in the spring of 2018, and will integrate with Kubernetes to achieve its mission.

This talk will also show how Network Service Mesh can be combined with existing Open Source projects such as FD.io and OpenDaylight. Finally, we will discuss how audience members can get involved and help drive the direction and development of NSM.
