PISCATAWAY, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--IEEE, the world's largest professional organization advancing technology for humanity, today announced the IEEE Software Defined Networks (SDN) Initiative will host the 2nd workshop focused on Mobile Edge Cloud located in Venice, Italy at Telecom Italia Mobile, Future Centre on June 16, 2016.
The workshop will bring together visionaries and thought leaders to address various approaches around the Mobile Edge Cloud concept for 5G in order to build a consensus on its overall architectural framework.
“5G era networks will have two objectives: Mobility with Enablement and Datacenter economics. Since 5G use cases require a broad set of very different capabilities, an enabling architecture will bring all the necessary architectural components together in key areas. Mobile Edge Cloud is at the heart of this enablement, bringing SDN/NFV frameworks and data path programmability to the proximity of end users as key enablers for service differentiation as needed. The datacenter economics is the ability to put common components, with the ability to use as a common hardware substrate and using the cloud technologies to program at a very fine grade to bring all applications and services with the required resiliency (performance, reliability, security etc.),” stated IEEE SDN Pre-Industrial Committee co-chair Cagatay Buyukkoc of AT&T. “To achieve this, the committee will look at opportunities for Proof of Concept work and establish relationships with other groups around the world to increase collaboration and reduce duplication.”
The workshop is organized by the IEEE SDN’s Pre-Industrial Committee. To receive a copy of the agenda and for information on how to register for the June workshop, please contact Cagatay Buyukkoc via email: email@example.com.
IEEE SDN’s flagship conference on Network Softwarization, IEEE NetSoft 2016, is set for June 6-10, 2016 in Seoul, Korea. For more information and to register, visit: http://sites.ieee.org/netsoft/.
