Multi-service and Multi-tenancy Architecture for the 5G Era

Simone Redana, Nokia Bell Labs, Germany

Current architectures do not provide the required flexibility to cope with the service and traffic diversity targeted by 5G mobile networks nor do they address the trends in terms of topologies. This panel explores novel concepts in the context of mobile network architecture for the 5G era, like cloud-based mobile architectures, functional split and placement, convergence of RAN and Core Network, multi-service and multi-tenancy architectures.

Biography—Dr. Simone Redana is Head of Mobile Network Architecture & Systems Research Group in Nokia Bell Labs and Chairman of the 5GPPP Architecture Working Group. Simone received the MSc and Ph.D. degrees from the Politecnico di Milano, Milan, Italy, in 2002 and 2005 respectively. In 2006, he joined Siemens Communication in Milan where he worked as consultant during 2005. Since 2008 he has been with Nokia in Munich, Germany. Simone contributed and leaded relay concept design in various EU research projects (WINNER II, WINNER+ and ARTIST4G). He contributed to the business case analysis of relay deployments and to the standardization of Relays for Long Term Evolution (LTE) Release 10. Simone has coordinated the EU funded project 5G NORMA (Novel Architecture for the 5G era). His current research interests are on novel architecture solutions for 5G era.

Wireless New Opportunity: Vertical Industry

Du Gaoke, Huawei, China

As the fast development of wireless industry, besides the traditional cellular MBB services, more and more new applications in vertical and IoT industry emerge, which would result in new wireless market and technology opportunities. Mr. Du Gaoke will introduce some of the potential technology directions on wireless vertical fields, standard progress, and some considerations and research layout from Huawei point of view.

Biography—Du Gaoke, the Manger of Huawei Wireless Research Beijing Division, head of Wireless vertical industry research Lab (vLab), has much experience in mobile communications. He started to participate 3GPP standard since 2001, deeply involved in UMTS, HSPA, LTE, LTE-A standard work, even 5G standard now. Familiar with UMTS, LTE and other communication protocols, has 30+ patents, some of them were adopted to LTE standard. Meanwhile, he initiated new wireless application research since 2011, research project covers LTE-Trunking, Video, Internet of Things, ITS, industrial Internet of things. And the research results on IoT, ITS and Unlicensed Spectrum were taken to 3GPP and lead to several 4G features as NB-IOT, LAA, LTE-V, etc.

Programmable End-to-End Network Slicing for 5G Enablement

Oguz Sunay, Argela, USA

5G networks will provide access to information and facilitate data sharing between people as well as things at any time and in any location, enabling a truly Networked Society. This in turn, will fuel connectivity based innovations in numerous vertical sectors, such as health, automotive, home, energy, etc. In this context, 5G is not just about making the throughput larger, it is also about offering use case optimized user experiences and inclusion of vertical sectors that haven’t been included in 4G so far. The use cases predicted for the 2020 timeframe will need new types of connectivity services that are highly scalable and programmable in terms of speed, capacity, security, reliability, availability, latency and impact on battery type. Then, 5G systems will need to be built to meet a range of performance targets, so that different services with widely different demands can be deployed on a single infrastructure. A single solution for all is no longer possible. 5G will need to be an agile network that can meet diverse needs with new, as-a-service models leveraging the framework of network slicing which targets to provide dedicated logical networks with network customer specific functionality without losing the economies of scale of a common infrastructure. In this presentation, we will present the role of SDN, NFV, cloud as well as open source in 5G enablement and how they collectively facilitate programmable end-to-end network slicing, allowing innovations towards use-case specific services and solutions.

Biography—Oguz Sunay is the CTO of Argela-USA. He is the architect for Programmable Radio Access Network Framework (ProgRAN) for 5G based on SDN, NFV, cloud technologies, and Network Virtualization. The framework enables dynamically programmable RAN slicing. Dr. Sunay is also leading Argela's efforts at ON.Lab and ONF. Dr. Sunay has held prior positions in Bell Labs, Nokia, Koc University and Ozyegin University. He holds over 25 patents on 3G and 4G and has over 20 patent applications on the ProgRAN architecture. He received his Ph.D. and M.Sc. from Queen’s University, Canada and his B.Sc. from METU, Turkey.

IOT Solution for Utilities

Gavin Whyte, KPMG, Australia

With the emergent of new Technologies in the IoT space, a multitude of cost effective sensors have become available. The advancements of IT infrastructure enables easy API integrations with sensors via carriers. In this talk, Gavin Whyte (Director of Data Science at KPMG) will talk about the KPMG & Huawei‘s collaboration on IoT solutions for utilities. This talk will go through various aspects of the solution including hardware, data, event streaming, and machine learning using robotic process automation. This talk will also introduce use cases of this solution that can help utility companies on predictive maintenance, as well as help customers to minimize spend on utility bills by reducing unnecessary waste.

Biography—Gavin is currently a director at KPMG, with over 25 years’ experience in the industry and specialises in machine learning and software development. Gavin has an extensive technical background and started his career as a professor in Mathematics and Computer Science. He has become a seasoned Data Scientist, executive, leader, strategist and an expert in business communications, product and process design relating to Data Science space. As a Director of Data Science for KPMG, and a machine learning specialist, he focuses on Data Science models for predictive capabilities. He has a unique ability to manage multi-disciplinary projects and navigate complex challenges. His current interests are writing machine learning code, for various data science capabilities.

Smart Cities: Standards and Interoperability for the IoT

Piers Hogarth-Scott, KPMG, Australia

Predictions have estimated that by 2020 there will be 50 billion connected IoT devices, in a market with a potential impact of AUD 14.5 trillion by 2025. In Australia this represents up to a potential $120 billion economic uplift in the same timeframe. Recognising that IoT is by definition an ecosystem of technologies, IoT devices require a robust solution for interoperating across widely varied systems and applications. The Australian government recently launched Hypercat, a standard for secure and interoperable IoT for smart cities and industry that was originally established in the UK three years ago with backing from the British government and more recently BSI and W3C. With the Federal Government’s $50M Smart Cities and Suburbs Program, there has never been a more important time for standards and interoperability of IoT.

Biography—Piers Hogarth-Scott is the National Internet of Things Practice Leader at KPMG, with a focus on Smart Cities including connected transport and infrastructure, Smart Universities, Smart Utilities and Smart Food and Fibre. Piers works with clients to tap into the $120 billion uplift in annual economic impact that is forecast to be derived from IoT to the Australian economy by 2025. Piers draws on KPMG’s deep industry, technology, policy and analytics insights to assist clients better deliver safe and effective IoT solutions. Piers helps clients with IoT strategy and implementation, security, data analytics, vendor selection, programme management, local and international policy, growth plans and more.
