AI in 5G networks
The telecommunications industry have pursued efforts to realize the idea of 5G networks. Besides increasing speeds and more efficient utilization of spectrum, a main goal is to establish the foundation and the common framework of new innovative network services.
5G operators may create new revenue streams from hosting 3rd party applications in their infrastructure in addition to the provisioning of their own services.
To achieve the aims of 5G, the development of scalable self-managed software and cloud platforms that supports the rapid deployment of services are needed. European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) has specified the Network Functions Virtualisation concept where Network Services are constructed by an appropriate chaining of
Network Functions (either physical network functions or virtualized network functions — VNF). The NFV initiative transformed the way telecom network operators architect their networks. It embraced virtualization techniques widely used in the IT industry and introduced the Infrastructure-as-a-Service cloud computing model into the Telco world.Some use cases of 5G applications have strict requirements (i.e., high availability and low latency for VR, AR, V2X, etc.) that can be achieved by the careful engineering, the new operating rules of cloud platforms and the optimal placement of application components. In the talk, the application possibilities of AI will be outlined for the efficient operation and management of 5G networks.
Prof. Do Van Tien – Budapest University Of Technology And Economics (Hungary)
Tien Van Do received the M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in telecommunications engineering from the Technical University of Budapest, Hungary, in 1991 and 1996, respectively. He is a professor in the Department of Telecommunications of the Budapest University of Technology and Economics, and a leader of Communications Network Technology and Internetworking Laboratory. He habilitated at BME, and received the DSc from the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in 2011. He has participated and lead work packages in the COPERNICUS-ATMIN 1463, the FP4 ACTS AC310 ELISA, FP5 HELINET, FP6 CAPANINA projects funded by EC (where he acted as a work package leader). He led various projects on network planning and software implementations that results are directly used for industry such ATM & IP network planning software for Hungarian Telekom, GGSN tester for Nokia, performance testing program for the performance testing of the NOKIA’s IMS product, automatic software testing framework for Nokia Siemens Networks. His research interests are queuing theory, telecommunication networks, cloud computing, performance evaluation and planning of ICT Systems. He is also a board member of Discrete Dynamics in Nature and Society, Hindawi.
