Lunchtime Debating Tables - KWA Foyer Level 0

 
 

 

An opportunity to discuss and debate key topics under the guidance and leadership of Congress Advisory Panel members

 
 

1. Future NFV modeling directions

Deng Hui | Chief NFV Strategy Officer | Huawei

Standard Coordinator and Chair, Modeling subcommittee | ONAP

 

2. Network Harmonization - bringing together standards and open source

Marc Cohn | Principal | MC Advisory

 
 

3. Managing "light out" NFV infrastructure and network service environments - viability, challenges and requirements

Alex Vul | Principal Cloud Architect | Intel

 

 

One potential outcome of going "zero-touch" is that very few or no people at all may be involved during day-to-day operation of NFV infrastructure and services. Is this really possible? What would be the challenges? What kind of requirements what we have to expose for the industry as a whole, in order to make "lights out" zero-touch environments a reality? These are the questions that we will attempt to answer in the next hour...

 
 

4. Machine Learning

Dave Meyer | Director Advanced Network Technology Center | University of Oregon

Chief Scientist, Future Network Theory Lab | Huawei

 
 

5. Securing your stacks: insider threats

5G: The Technological Landscape, Progress and Challenges

Ashiq Khan | Assistant Manager | NTT DOCOMO

 

 

Many operators around the world have already published their 5G roll out plan. DOCOMO also plans to roll out 5G in 2020 and its well on course.

Different 5G Radio Access Technologies are already in large scale trial phase, and a suitable mobile core network is under active investigation. The next mobile core network will be more service oriented and in this regard, the industry as well as DOCOMO, is focusing on network slicing. Network slicing can be considered as an evolution of NFV. A network slice can be a virtualized network, optimized for a particular service.

This presentation will introduce component technologies for 5G, shed light on progresses made in standardization and around the industry, and discuss technical challenges need to be addressed in the 5G era.
