Engineering Team Lead, CENGN
Cloud Native Networking with eBPF

Raymond is a full-time employee and a major contributor in our day-to-day operations here at CENGN. He began his journey configuring our initial IT infrastructure, which includes our Mitel Communications System, JIRA (a project management tool), Confluence (a content management tool), Salesforce (a CRM database) and synchronizing all of this enterprise software together, while providing ongoing IT support. Raymond has been integral in helping CENGN’s engineering team balance the numerous ongoing commercialization acceleration Proof-of-Concepts (PoCs) that require both lab and technical expertise. He has done this by automating the process for reviewing code, so that when there are patches that need to be made, the code is inputted, revised and pushed through the production environment.

“We’ll be talking about Cilium, which is an open source project that empowers cloud native networking using eBPF to optimize network policy enforcement, benefiting the entire ICT community.”

This talk will showcase Cilium, a CNI plugin that implements cloud native networking using eBPF for efficient packet processing and network policy implementation. Cilium is an open source project leveraged at CENGN as part of our Kubernetes platforms. It provides L3-L7 visibility and policy enforcement, using eBPF capabilities from the Linux kernel.
