This presentation introduces a 5G virtualization platform with P4-enabled network slicing and MEC services. The platform is a variant of the ONF M-CORD reference design. We first develop an Ansible playbook to build Kubernetes automatically and configure the container network with Container Network Interfaces (CNIs): Calico, Multus, and SR-IOV. After the instantiation of Kubernetes cluster, the platform uses RedHat Operator Framework to deploy 5G core network services, namely free5GC.
