Notes & Action Items

Meeting on February 19, 2016

  • Bin to work on further details of test procedure of L3VPN and SFC (Gluon), and set up an example / template for other contributions to follow
  • Lincoln to work on marketing material, including high-level agenda based on test plan, and share with Ray for outreach / marketing campaign
  • Ray to work with LF Event Team to set up registration page, including:
    • an entry for the participant to indicate whether they:
      • intend to bring hardware on premise; or
      • prefer remote access of their own hardware infrastructure resources; or
      • need hardware resource support from e.g. Pharos Lab
    • a list of registered participants (for the sake of snowball effect)
  • Ray to work with Board and Marketing Committee for a marketing / outreach campaign
  • Ray to reach out to Cable Labs to participate in discussion next week. The questions for CableLabs are:
    • Room space availability and limitation on premise
      • This information is needed by participants who intend to bring their own hardware on premise for PlugFest
    • Network connectivity information, e.g. available bandwidth, access method and limitation
      • This information is needed so as to match the connectivity requirement of Pharos Lab as well as test case requirement for participants who need remote access to their own infrastructure or Pharos Lab
      • This information is also needed for network setup on premise by participants who bring their own hardware
  • Trevor to reach out to Pharos Lab owners for securing dedicated infrastructure resource support during May 2-13 (inclusive).
  • All are encouraged to participate and bring their own hardware resources if possible
