Evolution of NFV/SDN for New 5G Network Platforms and Use Cases - Udayan Mukherjee at IEEE GLOBECOM 2018

As wireless mobile traffic explodes creating an unprecedented demands on networks, service providers are looking for equipment that delivers greater agility and economics to address constantly changing market requirements. The industry has been focused on developing more interoperable solutions based on software defined networking (SDN) and network functions virtualization (NFV) principles. At the core of these two approaches is the decoupling of network functions from hardware through abstraction. Consequently, software workloads will no longer need to be tied to a particular hardware platform, allowing them to be controlled centrally and deployed dynamically throughout the network as needed. Moreover, network functions can be consolidated onto standard, high-volume servers, switches, and storage, further reducing time-to market and costs for network operators. The 5th generation wireless technologies are essentially about communication and computing coming together. Specifically, 5G is about how communication transforms computing, enabling a new generation of devices that offer unprecedented user experience, and intelligence to things we interact with in our daily life. This massive technology transformation addresses various new and diverse revenue generating use cases like mission critical IOT, massive IOT as well as enhance broadband, each of which has different end2end latency, throughput and bandwidth characteristics. To address these diverse needs, the network has to be flexible and elastic in nature which in turn requires new ways of designing the system. For 5G Networks, slicing techniques development and implementation is a key ingredient to create self-contained logical systems from a common pool of physical resources (including computing, communication, storage, etc.). This is mainly enabled by virtualization techniques and advances in computation and communication capabilities. Examples of slicing include vertical network slicing for different services/applications or groups of users, and horizontal edge computing slicing for computing offloading to augment device capability. The solutions currently developed are aimed to achieve real-time, deterministic performance using open source components and are also applicable to deploying solutions for the cloud and enterprise. This keynote will address the current state-of-the-art of 5G infrastructure development and specifically how Intel is playing a key role in creating flexible new network platforms to address diverse needs of new and evolving use cases. This keynote will address evolving needs of the technologies including hardware and software constituents to facilitate the design of such a Network with Virtual RAN, Distributed Core, Mobile Edge Compute, and front-hauls/back-hauls connectivity.

Leveraging Adjacencies - Ibrahim Gedeon at IEEE GLOBECOM 2018

The telecommunication industry has evolved from enabling bytes per minute into delivering an array of entertainment options within seconds. The underlying research spans across multiple science and engineering disciplines. As technology leaders and contributors in the communications research space, we must recognize the adjacencies and leverage them so we can work together more efficiently. This keynote will discuss how we can collaborate to continue growing our industry, while making the world a better place.

Internet Infrastructure Transformation with Open Source and Disaggregation - Guru Parulkar at IEEE GLOBECOM 2018

The Internet infrastructure has been undergoing a major transformation over the past several years. This transformation can be best described in terms of three major trends: network device disaggregation, software-defined networking, and open source. This had led to network operators having more control of their infrastructure, increased rate of innovation and reduced capital and operational cost of the infrastructure. In this talk, I will take you through this journey and also highlight exciting opportunities ahead.

Why Would We Need 6G? - Gerhard Fettweis at IEEE GLOBECOM 2018

Cellular has made many big leaps forward. 1st generation (1G) was about telephony, but only 2nd generation (2G) made it happen for everyone. 3G was to enable video telephony and wireless internet, however 4G made it happen. Today 5G is understood to bring connectivity as an enabler for new services and products, ready to disrupt many industries. However, did we get it right, or which role does 5G have for real? Clearly, one big new application domain of 5G is to enable to remotely control objects (e.g. vehicles) via the network in a coordinated fashion, a step towards the Tactile Internet. Another aspect is to offer a new level of broadband connectivity of 1Gb/s and beyond, however, for what? Now, as 5G is preparing to be rolled-out, it is important to analyze what we have and to project what we need. This makes it clear that there is a true need for yet another step beyond 5G. Identifying the open research challenges and giving first answers is exciting. 6G will e.g. truly empower the Tactile Internet, it will bring mm-wave communications beyond 100GHz, and we will see data rates beyond 10Gb/s as needed for mobile virtual reality. We need to revisit system theory, network architecture concepts, and understand how to design 100Gb/s modems that are powered with less than 2W. The talk will analyze 5G, envision the future beyond 5G, and identify fascinating research challenges ahead, spanning from circuit to network design.

A Perspective of Wireless Innovations in the Next Decade - Wen Tong at IEEE GLOBECOM 2018

As we witness a global roll-out of 5G wireless, it is certain that 5G will unleash a new wave of revolutions in many aspects of our daily life and work. 5G will change the society. Whilst wireless technology will continue to innovate in several fronts, in particular, the radio technology and the networking technology, we need a long term view on the direction of future wireless. In this talk, we explore the future of wireless from the following perspectives: (1) the key role for future wireless is the cyber-controlled digital-world and physical-world, the neural network for society (2) the key requirement for future wireless is the trusted global connectivity and geo-sovereignty as the sustainable socio-economics fabric (3) the key capability for future wireless is the human-like-cognition-centric network based on the intelligent software. We also present some research challenges and technology breakthroughs required to deliver the vision for the future wireless.

Is the Network the Nexus of New Value Creation (and a New Reality)? - Marcus Weldon at IEEE GLOBECOM 2018

We are entering an era that will be unlike any other in the history of digital networks, an era that will be as transformative as the first and second industrial revolutions which were driven by the deployment of large-scale physical networks. In short, we are on the verge of the fourth industrial revolution, which will be defined by the sensing of all physical systems and spaces, and the augmentation of all physiological systems (e.g. humans) with new devices, and software and hardware assistants, and driven by the need for renewed productivity in everything we do. I will discuss the key drivers in this new value paradigm and the role of the networking infrastructure. I may even venture to propose a new geopolitical reality that will be the by-product of this next phase of human existence.
