Mobile Cloud Networks
Thursday, 21 November 2013, 16:15 – 17:45, Jupiter 9
Innovative services and products over the next decade will be strongly driven by cloud computing technologies. Research communities on cloud technologies will need to address challenges such as radio access in the cloud, new opportunities for sharing of infrastructure, open source, SDN (software defined networks), new CDN (content delivery networks), and ICN (information centric networks). Globally, green requirements, performance and scalability studies and related impacts on policy, regulation and standardisation will also need to be addressed. Telecommunication networks need to be prepared for the requirements coming from cloud services, transporting the corresponding information in an effective and efficient way. The cloud concept is being brought into network architectures, by introducing virtualisation into all signal processing and information storage in the networks, and the service provision concept as a replacement for current network node functionalities. Game developers, network operators, OTT content providers and community operators will have a big role to play in these new paradigms. A broad view will be taken, addressing perspectives of innovation, standardisation, business models, implementation, roadmap, and so on.
