Cloud-Network Slicing: Concepts, Benefits and Enablers

on 17-05-2024


Join us for the IEEE Distinguished Lecture by Augusto Jose-Venancio Neto.

The lecture will occur in-person and online on May 17th, 02:30 – 04:00 p.m. at Instituto de Telecomunicações (Building 19 - amphitheater IT1), in Universidade de Aveiro campus.

Cloud-network slicing has emerged as a transformative paradigm in the realm of 5G, promising to revolutionize the way virtual and communication resources are allocated and managed. This talk delves into the fundamental concepts of cloud-network slicing, exploring our architecture, principles, and key technology enablers to set instances across core and RAN domains.

We will delve into the various benefits that cloud-network slicing brings to the table, including improved multi-tenancy, enhanced network flexibility, and customized service delivery. Additionally, we will discuss the enabling technologies and methodologies that facilitate the implementation of cloud-network slicing, such as network function virtualization (NFV), software-defined networking (SDN), cloud computing, and predictive networking elasticity.

Overall, this talk aims to provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of cloud-network slicing, its benefits, and the key enablers driving its adoption in modern network architectures. Attendees will gain insights into how cloud-network slicing can unlock new opportunities for innovation and efficiency in cloud computing and networking domains.
