Superfluidity’s Taiwan tour (October 31st-November 2nd, 2016)
October 31, 2016 @ 1:00 am - November 2, 2016 @ 10:00 am CET
Superfluidity 5G PPP project is holding its Taiwan tour between October 31st and November 2nd, 2016. Various events are organised: on October 31th, 2016, a distinguished lecture speech is organised at Institute of Information Science – Academia Sinica. On November 1st, 2016, a talk is scheduled at National Chiao Tung University. Another talk will take place at National Taiwan University of Science and Technology on November 2nd.
Prof. Giuseppe Bianchi (CNIT) will give talks about the following topic “Revisiting control/data plane separation in Software Defined Networking”. A short abstract can be found here: http://www.iis.sinica.edu.tw/page/events/FILE/161031.pdf.
The Superfluidity project aims at achieving superfluidity in the Internet: the ability to instantiate services on-the-fly, run them anywhere in the network (core, aggregation, edge) and shift them transparently to different locations.
The Superfluidity project tackles crucial shortcomings in today’s networks: long provisioning times, with wasteful over-provisioning used to meet variable demand; reliance on rigid and cost-ineffective hardware devices; daunting complexity emerging from three forms of heterogeneity: heterogeneous traffic and sources; heterogeneous services and needs; and heterogeneous access technologies, with multi-vendor network components.
Superfluidity will provide a converged cloud-based 5G concept that will enable innovative use cases in the mobile edge, empower new business models, and reduce investment and operational costs.
The Superfluidity consortium gathers a blend of Telco and IT players that can make its vision a reality.
