4th KuVS NGSDP Expert Talk
Bringing SDPs to the Future Internet and Future Generation Networks
April 1, 2011, A1 Telekom Austria Headquarters, Vienna, Austria
We would like to announce the 4rd Workshop (Fachgespräch) on Next Generation Service Delivery Platforms & Service Overlay Networks - “Bringing SDPs to the Future Internet and Future Generation Networks" of the GI/ITG specialist group on Communications and Distributed Systems “Kommunikation und Verteilte Systeme (KuVS)".
It is the objective of this series of workshops to support intense discussions among researchers from industry and academia in this challenging area gluing together applications and different network types. The foundation will be provided by presentations covering latest research results selected from submitted proposals and by invited talks. After three successful workshops in Berlin (Nov. 2009, Oct. 2010; organized by Fraunhofer Focus and Deutsche Telekom) and Munich (May 2010; organized by Teléfonica O2) this upcoming fourth meeting will be hosted by the University of Vienna.
The 4th GI/ITG KuVS workshop (Fachgespräch) on Next Generation Service Delivery Platforms and Service Overlay Networks took place on April 1st, 2011 at the headquarters of the Telekom Austria group (Vienna, Austria). The general theme of the workshop was on "Bringing SDPs to the Future Internet and Future Generation Networks“.
The workshop received five high-quality, international contributions. Thus, its program was organized into three sessions (“SDP concept for future network", “Future concepts for operators" and “IMS"). The topics of the talks were:
- “Mobile Service Evolution und Research Trends in Future Internet" (K. Tutschku, University of Vienna, Austria)
- “Optimization of Elastic Cloud Brokerage Mechanisms for Future Telecommunication Service Environments" (F. Schreiner, Fraunhofer FOKUS, Berlin, Germany)
- “A Taste of Telco and Web" (J. Zeiss, FTW, Vienna, Austria) “TV-Web-Telco integration: the next convergence frontier" (E. Scotto, NSN, Munich, Germany)
- “Service Composition over IMS: approaches and solutions" (P. Baglietto, University of Padova, Italy)
All presentations are available for download.
The list of presentation reflects effectively the two major on-going lines of discussion in the development SDPs. More futuristic proposals, in particular presentation 1 and 2, aim at the re-establishing an improved coordination between the transport system and the service delivery platform. However, more near-term proposals, such as presentations 3-5, investigate more seamless approaches to improve the capability and effectiveness of SDPs.
All in all, the workshop can account as big success. It attracted 18 people with two-third of them never have been at a KUVS SDP workshop before. In addition, almost 50% of the participants where from industry, including A1TelekomAustria, T-Mobile Austria, NSN Germany, and Slovakian Telekom.
