Challenges and Opportunities in Cloud Networking

Bell Labs Israel

Tuesday December 2nd  08:30-14:30         

The combination of the ongoing transition into all-IP networks (VoIP, LTE, IP DSLAMs) and the recent introduction of NFV and SDN pushes the telecommunication industry into a massive shift in network design.  The new architecture (currently still in the making) will be based on an execution of the network functions on commodity servers located in small cloud nodes distributed across the network, and the use of software defined mechanisms that control the network flows.  This is a major turning point in the evolution of networking as we know it that introduces, in addition to new opportunities and high expectations for better and more economical network services, major technical challenges.   This workshop features invited talks by notable academic researchers and Bell Labs leadership on issues related to this new era of Distributes Cloud Networking.
