Dr. Henry Tirri,

VP, Head of System Research,

Nokia Research Centre

 

Abstract

In the evolution of computing we have witnessed the trend of  moving from centralized mainframes to networked, highly distributed heterogeneous computing devices. At each evolutionary phase in this timeline -  time-sharing mainframes to minicomputers, minicomputers to personal desktop computers, desktop computers to laptops, laptops to mobile handsets and PDAs – a new scale challenge has emerged: scaling in memory capacity, scaling in computational speed, scaling in networking architecture and protocols, scaling in energy consumption. Such scaling challenges are not driven only by technology; they are deeply intertwined with new usage patterns and applications of the computing devices in a complex feedback cycle of global macrotrends and enabling technologies.
In this talk we will discuss the interesting scaling challenges we are facing during the next decade of evolution in the so-called mobile computing era and their impact on emerging applications and services enabled by solving these challenges. In other words: What will the next 5 Billion computing devices enable us to do?

Abstract

Next Generation Networks (NGNs) are representing an important milestone in the evolution of fixed and mobile telecommunication networks towards an all-IP based multimedia services network environment. Positioned in the centre of the convergence of telecommunications and the internet, a major question arising is what kind of future multimedia killer applications will justify the huge investments to be undertaken for NGN introduction. Based on the success of the internet under the banner of Web 2.0 the hard lesson learned by the telecoms industry is, that there won’t be any single killer application in the future but rather a multitude of the niche services  have to provided to a broadening spectrum of user groups also called communities. The IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) is supposed as international standard to provide as a structured over the top (OTT) service control architecture these kinds of presence-based community communication and information services.

However, the IMS is not standardising how services have to be developed and provided in an efficient way. The notion of Service Delivery Platforms (SDPs) is addressing this spectrum of needed functionalities on top of various network types, including emerging NGN and IMS infrastructures. This means that SDPs and IMS are considered today as important platforms on top of NGNs for the efficient implementation of an open set of multimedia services. Efficiency in this context is enabled by the concept of reusable service components designed independently of underlying network technologies, which brings us to the notion of Service oriented Architectures (SOA) considered today as holy grail for future proof system design.

 This talk introduces the main buzzwords of converging networks and puts them into context by outlining a target SOA Telco architecture, which is forming the base of the FOKUS Open SOA Telco playground, an extensible technology testbed for prototyping innovative multimedia applications on top of converging networks. Application examples, such as an IMS-enabled Facebook application as well as an IMS-based Community IPTV service will be shown.

 Thomas Magedanz Biography

Thomas Magedanz (PhD) is full professor in the electrical engineering and computer sciences faculty at the Technische Universität Berlin, Germany, leading the chair for next generation networks (www.av.tu-berlin.de). In addition, he is director of the “next generation network infrastructure” division of the Fraunhofer Institute FOKUS (www.fokus.fraunhofer.de/ngni ), which also provides various testbeds and tools in the context of Next Generation Networks and Open Converged Service Environments.. The most popular ones include the Open Source IMS Core (www.openimscore.org ) and the Open IMS Playground (www.open-ims.org) established in 2004. In 2007 he opened the new Open SOA Telco Playground (www.opensoaplayground.org ) for IMS/Web2.0/SOA service prototyping and the Media Interoperability Laboratory (www.fokus.fraunhofer.de/go/mil/) for converged IPTV services.

Since more than 20 years Prof. Magedanz is working in the convergence field of fixed and mobile telecommunications, the internet and information technologies, which resulted in many international  R&D projects centred around Next Generation Service Delivery platforms based on the aforementioned testbeds. In 2007 Prof. Magedanz joined the European FIRE (Future Internet Research Environment) Expert Group.

In the course of his research activities he published more than 200 technical papers/articles. In addition, Prof Magedanz is senior member of the IEEE, and editorial board member of several journals.

In 2006, Prof Magedanz has been assigned as Extraordinary Professor at the Department of Electrical Engineering of the University of Cape Town, South Africa (www.ee.uct.ac.za ). Since 2007, he is also Visiting Professor to the Department of Mathematics, Physics and Computing at the Waterford Institute of Technology in Ireland (http://www.wit.ie).

 

 

 

Convergence of Man and Machine Processes in the Emerging Internet

Professor Imrich Chlamtac

President of CREATE-NET,  Honorary Bruno Kessler Professor at the University of Trento,  Italy

And

Radoslaw Piesiewicz, Dr.-Ing.

Head of Broadband and Wireless Area

CREATE-NET

 

 

 

Abstract

The convergence of biology and engineering is one of the fast growing phenomena in IT research currently.

The emerging networks, characterized by billions of simple, inexpensive devices, do not lend themselves to classical networks optimization and management.  To reach efficient operation and equilibria these networks need to develop effective collaboration strategies in the absence of central control, autonomously.

Inspiration for these systems can be drawn from biology.

Based on autonomic local interactions these novel models of system design and control are a candidate for providing integrated communication service environments with the  scaling and adaptation needed  to face the constantly changing,  growing and unpredictable user expectations in cost, services and response quality.

 

Imrich Chlamtac Biography

 Imrich Chlamtac is the President of CREATE-NET, a non-profit international research institute and the Honorary Bruno Kessler Professor at the University of Trento, Italy.   In the past he was with Technion and UMass, Amherst, DEC Research and helped found several successful technology firms, including Consip Ltd and BCN Inc, one of the largest System Integrators in central Europe.

 In his academic life he  has held various chaired professorships in USA and Europe including the Distinguished Chair in Telecommunications Professorship at the University of Texas at Dallas, Sackler       Professorship at Tel Aviv University, "University Professorship" at the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, and Honorary Professorship from the Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications.

Real Life experiences in the Mobile Value-Added Services

 

Dr. George Kontopidis

CTO, NMS Communications, USA

 

 

Abstract

Behind every successfully launched mobile value-added service is not only innovative technology but also a sound business model that incorporates local culture, user behavior or need. Even the best technology cannot guarantee a positive return on investment to the operator and a tangible value to the consumer. Dr. George Kontopidis, Vice President Engineering and Strategic Direction at NMS Communications, will provide several real world examples of application innovation in mobile value-added services and describe both the technology and business model that lead to their success.
