COST ACROSS Workshop "Management & Control for Reliable Softwarized Networks"
Software Defined Networks (SDN), Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Edge Cloud and Fog Computing are key ingredients of the currently ongoing trend towards softwarization of telecommunication networks. This trend will drastically reduce network costs through commoditization of hardware and will bring increased flexibility regarding network and service deployment, which will lower entrance barriers for new players and give rise to new value chains.
However, in order to attain the full potential of softwarized networks, new research challenges for their management and control need to be addressed. This workshop deals with these management and control challenges to ensure availability and quality of existing and new services to be delivered over softwarized networks in an efficient and cost effective manner. Particular attention will be paid to the use of autonomous or cognitive control methods for resource management (bandwidth, computing, storage), in conjunction with big data techniques, to achieve these goals and maximize network reliability and resiliency.
Workshop organization: The workshop is organized under the umbrella of the European COST Action IC1304 “Autonomous Control for a Reliable Internet of Services” (COST ACROSS, http://www.cost-across.nl/).
The full ITC 29 CostAcross Workshop program is available online.
