In-band Telemetry Using P4 for 5G Networks

Telco edge in 5G networks will focus on providing high performance to mission critical and ultra-low latency applications. Traditional methods of control plane analytics cannot scale for providing high performance at high throughput. In-band network telemetry using the P4 programmable data plane and P4 run time APIs offers flow analysis with the advantage of flexibility and performance. In this talk, the data plane telemetry (INT) solution advantages and its segment routing (SRv6) and machine learning use case will be discussed.
