Organic Self-Adjusting Networks

Hayim Porat | CTO | ECI

 

 

Network edges drive new patterns of network traffic, and as a result of these distributed patterns, it is getting increasingly difficult to predict traffic for two reasons: First, massive amounts of data produced and consumed in spurts that need to be distributed to different institutions and data centers. Second, the advent of 5G/IoT/MEC platforms will lead to the creation of many new services and thus many new and erratic data flows with widely differing traffic handling and latency requirements.

ECI will outline the work needed to take dynamically controlled networks to the next level, when networks will be able to self-optimize and self-configure according to the capabilities of routes and resources to deal with different traffic demands originating from the edge.

SDNizer: Bring your legacy devices into the Digital World

Stephan Scholz | CTO | Atrinet

 

 

Digital Transformation in the Telco Industry (as in any other industry) needs to happen, is happening and will happen! The question is: how and when? The major obstacle that seems to slow down the progress is the complexity of this transformation, specifically when a lot of legacy equipment needs to be transformed. Another patcher seems to be the complexity of the solutions currently offered in the market. In this presentation 2 topics will be addressed:
1. how digital transformation can be done in a really simple manner
2. a very simple tool called SDNizer, which is wrapping every legacy equipment so that it looks "new born" for the digitalized SDN- and NFV-world.

The Implications of 5G and Beyond for OSS Intelligent Operations as the New Norm

Azam Beyk | Lead OSS Consultant | Comarch

 

 

CSPs are facing major challenges to the sustainability of their network
operations. Their current operations are becoming very complex, due to exponential changes in the market and technology. The operational processes they have been following will not work in the near future. The evolution of technology is creating new opportunities in new market sectors, and developments are continuing to drive both service demand and the development of new telecom applications. Telecom operators must remain agile and adapt quickly to next generation communications such as 5G. They are looking at innovating within their network operations, while profiting from the new business opportunities enabled by 5G services. To be able to monetize these new opportunities optimally, they must adopt a combination of incremental innovation in certain areas, and disruptive innovation in other areas.

CSPs are working to minimize their reliance on manual processes in order to increase operational efficiency. Operations support systems (OSS) will play an important part in achieving 5G goals. As networks become more software-defined, they are less reliant on the manual input of network engineers. As a result, artificial intelligence (AI) will play a major role in transforming OSS towards cognitive 5G networks and services. The aim of this article is to help end users understand both the impact of 5G on the existing systems and the migration paths to the future OSS. The scope of this document includes CSPs' operational challenges, a review of 5G communications, the impact and key technological requirements for future OSS, an introduction to intelligent OSS, and finally cognitive 5G orchestration based on AI.
