NETWORK TRANSFORMATION FOR BUSINESS INNOVATION

 

09:10

KPNs Second Generation of Network Virtualisation
How Network Virftualisation can enable the Digital Telco

Bob Smeets | Lead-Architect , Network Virtualization | KPN

 

 

By reviewing our experiences of the first generation of network virtualisation, we now refocus our effort in allignment with the targets of a Digital Telco. By focusing on customer experience, the characteristics are identified of a layered architecture for the second generation of network virtualisation. These characteristics will drive the selection of available and new technologies while making use of the learnings and capabilities of the first generation implementation.

 

09:30

Empowering network monitoring through programmability

Marco Savi | Researcher | FBK CREATE-NET

 

 

In this talk we introduce the concept of programmable network monitoring and discuss its benefits, in terms of reduction of information overhead, as well as increase in performance and flexibility. The talk will focus on two principal technological enablers:extended Berkley Packet Filtering (eBPF) and P4-programmable data planes, debating their applicability and the challenges that should be further addressed. A potential use-case on cyber-security validating the concept will also be presented.

 

09:50

Open Transport API for Interoperable Optical Networking

Oscar González de Dios | Researcher | Telefónica

 

 

The goal of SDN is to enable flexible, automated and programmable networks that reduce Opex and accelerate service delivery. Realizing open, interoperable multi-vendor optical networking is one key to achieving this goal. This talk will discuss the operator requirements and use cases for open, interoperable optical networks using the Transport API, and the OIF's work on interoperability testing of T-API.

NETWORK TRANSFORMATION FOR BUSINESS INNOVATION

 

11:05

Open Network OS by Carrier for White-box switch toward accelerating network disaggregation

Hirotaka Yoshioka | Director of IP transport technology | NTT

 

 

Following server technology, carriers are proceeding their study adapting white-box switch to each network, and the solution to integrate the disaggregated devices seems to meet carriers' network needs. However, it is also a fact that carriers still have to choose some Network OS white-box from limited and pre-matured candidates.
This speech shows NTT's activity since 2015 to create its own S/W in order to show specific requirements against Network OS for white-box. In addition, outline of the network OS architecture consisted of OSS and free S/W, status as OSS, and the issues NTT found as white-box & OSS user will be provided as well.

 

11:25

From software defined networking to autonomous network operations

Stephan Neidlinger | VP Strategic Alliance Management | ADVA Optical Networking

 

 

The presentation will describe the current network transformation journey from SDN as architecture and tool for managing multi-vendor network environments, via automated multi-layer network optimization to autonomous network operations using artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) concepts. Applications and use cases in disaggregated packet optical and mobile networks (vRAN) will be given, including an overview recent field trials and demos. In addition, status of related standards and industry forums will be discussed.

Please note: this Forum is open for all delegates.

 
 

 

This Forum has been organised by ETSI leadership

 
 

 

The New Internet Forum is intended to provide an open platform for users and operators to explore technical issues with the current network technologies and the capabilities of new protocols, while constructing a more powerful and intelligent network that can support more future application scenarios.
Emerging technology requirements from different market segments, such as Holography, industrial networks, vehicular networks, IoT, and 5G networks and services, offer initial scenarios where the next generation protocols should significantly simplify solutions.

How you may benefit
· Meet the industry leaders and experts
· Exchange and expand your own knowledge on next generation protocols
· Develop a clearer understanding of the innovation in technology and applications
· Expand the connection with potential various partners
· Improve the influence in vertical industry
