Keynote Talk I - 9:45-10:30
Dependability in 5G networks. An operator perspective
Andres Gonzalez (Telenor, NO)
5G will enable a range of new and improved use cases, with new business models across multiple new industries that promises to have a very positive impact in society. From a more technical perspective, the main 5G goals are to deliver huge enhancements in data transmission rates and to deploy a flexible and scalable platform, where virtualization and “softwarization” are the main pillars. This talk will provide first an overview of the operators 5G- Vision, and based on that, the most relevant dependability challenges in this regard will be highlighted. In addition, it will be shown how operators get prepared to address dependability issues in new and unknown technologies such as 5G, and how have been specified some of the dependability requirements in currently existent NFV deployments that will be part of 5G.
Andres Gonzalez is Research Scientist at Telenor Group. He received his PhD in Telecommunications from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology NTNU in 2013, and his Master in Telecommunications Engineering from The National University of Colombia and the Vienna University of Technology in 2008. Since 2013 he joined Telenor, working in Research projects and Proof of Concepts towards 5G with a main focus on NFV, SDN, and Network Slicing, which are his main current research interest, as well as the analysis of dependability issues in emerging network technologies, analysis and simulation of fault tolerant systems, dependability modeling, failure data processing and analysis, and reliable networks design.
