IEEE Future Networks: Security in SDN/NFV and 5G Networks - Opportunities and Challenges

Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) are the key pillars of future networks, including 5G and Beyond that promise to support emerging applications such as enhanced mobile broadband, ultra low latency, massive sensing type applications while providing the resiliency in the network. Service providers and other verticals (e.g., Connected Cars, IOT, eHealth) can leverage SDN/NFV to provide flexible and cost-effective service without compromising the end user quality of service (QoS). While NFV and SDN open up the door for flexible networks and rapid service creation, these offer both security opportunities while also introducing additional challenges and complexities, in some cases. With the rapid proliferation of 4G and 5G networks, operators have now started the trial deployment of network function virtualization, especially with the introduction of various virtualized network elements in the access and core networks. These include elements such as virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC), virtualized IP Multimedia Services (vIMS), Virtualized Residential Gateway, and Virtualized Next Generation Firewalls. However, very little attention has been given to the security aspects of virtualization. While several standardization bodies (e.g., ETSI, 3GPP, NGMN, ATIS, TIA) have started looking into the many security issues introduced by SDN/NFV, additional work is needed with larger security community involvement including vendors, operators, universities, and regulators. This tutorial will address evolution of cellular technologies towards 5G but will largely focus on various security challenges and opportunities introduced by SDN/NFV and 5G networks such as Hypervisor, Virtual Network Functions (VNFs), SDN Controller, Orchestrator, Network slicing, Cloud RAN, and security function virtualization. This tutorial will also highlight some of the ongoing activities within various standards communities and will illustrate a few deployment use case scenarios for security including threat taxonomy for both operator and enterprise networks. In addition, I will also describe some of the ongoing activities within IEEE Future Network initiative including roadmap efforts and various ways one can get involved and contribute to this initiative.

IEEE Future Networks: Networked Electricity

Internet technology and cellular communications technology have transformed many aspects of how we communicate, and caused us to consider and do things in ways not previously possible or for many even imaginable. 5G and other technology will take us further down this path. Every device that communicates by definition consumes electricity. As we advance communications technologies with new concepts and capabilities, it makes sense to do the same for electricity. Local Power Distribution (LPD) is a "network model of power", organized from the bottom-up into nanogrids that can be networked to each other, local generation, and a utility grid. A nanogrid controller contains a battery and provides power to attached end-use devices. The controller establishes a local price that influences device operation, management of internal storage, and exchanges of power with other controllers, sources, and the grid. All power connections are digitally managed and plug-and-play. LPD is intended for all application contexts, whether a utility grid is present always, never, or intermittently. Future communications devices will exist in a variety of power contexts, from those that are stand-alone but grid-connected, stand-alone without a grid connection, or internal to a building with power available from that building. Many of these may be connected to local renewable generation, and for reliability and other purposes, all will include at least some amount of energy storage. In some countries, grid power is routinely unreliable. A generic technology solution which allows for base stations to automatically adapt to any changing power contexts can reduce costs, increase efficiencies, improve performance, and enable more use of renewables and storage. It can also enable more graceful system degradation when power is in short supply. As with Internet technology, we not only want new electrical technology to operate in different ways internally, we want users to think about electricity differently with new capabilities.

IEEE Future Networks: mmWaves in 5G NR Cellular Networks: A System Level Perspective

Communication at mmWave frequencies will play a key role in next generation 5G cellular networks. However, mobile scenarios are the most challenging for mmWave cellular systems, due to the high propagation loss, the relatively small coverage area of individual cells, and rapid channel dynamics caused by blockage events. In this talk, Michele Polese will describe some MAC and network level solutions that can provide a consistent and reliable user experience in mmWave mobile networks. The first part of the talk will focus on beam management and multi connectivity for 3GPP NR. Then, deployment issues will be discussed, with the recent 3GPP Study Item on Integrated Access and Backhaul in the spotlight. Finally, the last part will present a selection of results on the performance of TCP on mmWave links, and of possible algorithms and architectures to improve the end-to-end performance in these networks.

IEEE Future Networks: 5G - A Door Opener to 6G?

As we see 5G unfold, expectations on the economic and societal impact are very high. Many new opportunities shall emerge for new business opportunities, with new vertical entering the market to embrace cellular technology to advance to a new stage of innovation. The most popularly discussed vertical being the mobility sector and manufacturing (industry 4.0). However, maybe agriculture and construction are closer to see an impact? We shall review economic opportunities, and their derive some basic technical requirements. Analyzing this and mapping it onto the verticals can give us some interesting insights. It also helps build an understanding of detecting missing pieces. 1G was a great step towards ubiquitous voice telephony, but 2G fixed the problems (like international roaming). 3G was a great step towards ubiquitous cellular data, but we needed 4G to fix the challenges. 5G will be an infliction point in bringing cellular to new applications. However, do we again use the 5G generation to understand what is really needed and have to wait for 6G as a fix?

IEEE Future Networks: Mitigating Thermal and Power Limitations to Enable 5G

3GPP has defined 5G-NR with a modulation that inherently reduces energy efficiency of linear transmitters. This causes thermal problems from the dissipated power, which is a particular difficulty for massive-MIMO arrays. Temperature rise from transmitter power dissipation limits the array size that can be safely built. Achieving the multiple business objectives for 5G installations requires solving this problem, and using Sampling technologies is showing great promise to meeting this goal. This presentation presents the physical basis of this thermal problem, and shows how the sampling operation of the switch-mode mixer modulator (SM3) solves not only the thermal problem but also how, using the SM3, signal bandwidth efficiency is increased to 14 bits per symbol (16,384-QAM) with modulation within 0.5% of ideal.

IEEE Future Networks: 5G Drives Major Paradigm Shifts for Power

The 5G network promises massive bandwidths and low latencies, but none will come to fruition without major paradigm shifts in network power architecture/distribution/utilization. 5G is a unique case study because it brings together many cutting-edge aspects of today's cloud-focused world. It is dependent on cohesion from the edge to the core network with the latest in data center technology (i.e. - Software-defined/virtualized everything). In between, there are heterogeneous networks of small cells operating in licensed/unlicensed spectrum via massive multi-input multi-output (MIMO) arrays of antennas required to enable millimeter wave transmission for billions of users. Power is the absolute gatekeeper for enabling 5G whether it be precise management of smartphone battery usage/charging, envelope tracking signals to optimize efficiency for the power amplifier (PA) at either ends, or intelligent power management in the data center to allow for unprecedented volumes of data processing/transmission to occur in footprints practical enough to sit around neighborhoods.

IEEE Future Networks: Massive MIMO for 5G Below 6 GHz: Achieving Spectral Efficiency, Link Reliability, and Low-Power Operation

5G, the next generation of wireless networks, needs to accommodate massive data traffic, large user numbers, high reliability, and yet provide great energy efficiency. When talking about 5G-enabling technologies, there is much fuss about millimeter wave communications, which is the ideal approach for delivering high data rates over short distances. However, the mmWave operation is inherently unreliable and unsuitable for wide-area coverage. To satisfy all the 5G requirements, we also need to make major improvements in the network operation at conventional cellular frequency bands, below 6 GHz. Massive MIMO is the name of multiantenna technologies that use access points with hundreds of antenna elements. Massive MIMO was conceived as the way to deliver very high spectral efficiency in bands below 6 GHz, using spatial multiplexing of tens of users per cell. In recent years, Massive MIMO has gone from being a mind-blowing theoretical concept to one of the most promising 5G-enabling technologies; several world records in spectral efficiency have been set by Massive MIMO testbeds. The use of arrays with many antennas creates the phenomenon of channel hardening, which means that the rapid fading variations that normally haunt wireless links are averaged out, leading to high link reliability. Furthermore, the array gain provided by the directive transmissions allow for reduced transmit powers, which is an enabler for low-power nodes. In this talk, I will explain the basics of Massive MIMO and the importance of implementing it in the right way in order to reap all the benefits that the technology can deliver. I will exemplify how to achieve high spectral efficiency, great link reliability, and low-power operation.

IEEE Future Networks: 5G Technology Is Fantastic, But Can We Afford It?

The 5G community has set out a beguiling vision of a communications network that is faster, higher capacity, lower latency and able to manage a wide diversity of traffic. But achieving this will require massive investment in small cells, backhaul, new core networks, mobile edge computing and much more. This comes at a time when mobile operators are mostly seeing revenue fall and profitability reduce and are cutting back on investment as a result. 5G proponents are looking to enterprise for new revenue streams, but is this feasible and are there alternatives such as dense Wi-Fi and standalone IoT solutions that could deliver more cost-effectively? This webinar will look at the economics behind 5G and show that there are funding gaps to bridge in many areas.

IEEE Future Networks: 5G mmWave Revolution and New Radio

The first phase of standardization of 5G cellular systems is currently underway covering bands up to 52.6 GHz while the next phase will cover bands up to 100 GHz. Due to the availability of large bandwidths at mmWave frequencies (20 GHz-100 GHz) the 5G requirements of greater than 10 Gbps of peak rate and edge rates greater than 100 Mbps for extreme mobile broadband (eMBB) applications can be met using a simple air-interface design and high dimension phased arrays. The mmWave systems also face inherent challenges, such as a high penetration loss, a higher sensitivity to blockage and diminished diffraction, which the system must overcome. In this talk, a comprehensive view of mmWave technology will be discussed. Firstly, mmWave challenges and propagation characteristics will be presented with some compelling use cases. Next, the availability of spectrum at mmWave frequencies will be discussed followed by comprehensive description of 5G new radio (NR) interface. Massive MIMO is one of the key features since at mmWave frequencies coverage enhancing solutions are essential to compensate for the higher path-loss. Massive MIMO technology @ mmWave will be discussed along with system performance results. The system performance will cover early use case for pre-5G commercial systems, namely, providing high speed fixed access wireless data service to residential customers in suburban neighborhoods. The effect of foliage, power, ISD, SU/MU MIMO on system performance will also be presented. Finally, some field results on early Proof-of-Concept (PoC) mmWave systems will be presented.
