Webinar May 2022 Systems Optimization for Future Networks
IEEE Future Networks Webinar: Open RAN - Challenges and Opportunities for Future Wireless Networks
Wednesday 1 May 2022 | 11:00am ET
Baw Chng, Dilip Krishnaswamy, and Lyndon Ong
About the Webinar
Systems Optimization for future networks and network services will be a challenge due to the variance across services, traffic types and control architectures needed to support 5G/6G. Future networks will need greater local automation and intelligence for optimization of resources to keep costs controlled, but at the same time need to incorporate higher level, end-to-end optimization and policies for the operator. This webinar will review the work of the IEEE Future Networks Systems Optimization Working Group, explore some of the important use cases for systems optimization such as Open RAN, and highlight the challenges for systems optimization for future networks over the next 10 years.
