Keynote III:
Building the Responsible Internet


Paola Grosso
University of Amsterdam,

Abstract:

In the last years, we are witnessing growing concerns from private citizens as well as governments regarding the trustworthiness of the Internet.  One way to address these questions is to look at the current Internet architecture, and the protocols that govern the data transmission, and change them so that we can have additional transparency, accountability, and controllability.

These three aspects are what we call the TAC triad of a Responsible Internet, an extension of the current Internet that we are currently investigating.

In my presentation I will cover the current research effort in this direction,  and show how moving towards more trustable infrastructures enables data sharing applications and services that comply with the desired security levels of the data owners.

Biography:

Paola Grosso (Member, IEEE)   is an Associate  Professor at the  University of   Amsterdam where she leads the Multiscale Networked Systems research group (mns-research.nl). Her work focuses on the creation of sustainable and secure e-infrastructures, which rely on the provisioning and design of programmable networks. She has an extensive list of publications on the topic and currently contributes to several national and international projects such as the EU-funded projects Fed4FIRE+ (https://www.fed4fire.eu/), SLICES-RI (https://slices-ri.eu/), as well as international initiatives like FABRIC (https://fabric-testbed.net/about/fab/).

Keynote IV:
Cloud deployments of 5G core networks: unleashing the power of private 5G


Nicola di Pietro

Abstract:

5G networks have been conceived to address the needs and requirements of very heterogeneous verticals, proposing mobile networks as a controllable and tunable infrastructural asset for companies, industries, and governmental entities, even when they do not have a telecommunication-oriented vocation or deep expertise. To fully realize such an ambition, private 5G networks should be easily instantiated, operated, managed, and scaled. Cloud environments are a perfect domain to deploy virtualized network functions that support such goals.

This presentation focuses on mobile core network virtualized solutions that allow users to deploy the most advanced and sophisticated 5G networks with Wi-Fi-like simplicity while using any 5G-radio from any vendor. We will present a core network solution that can be deployed on private or public cloud environments and resources to serve the needs of different verticals, lighten and facilitate the network deployment and management, and increase the network’s robustness. On-cloud 5G core network deployments make private 5G affordable, practical, and accessible to all kinds of users, without sacrificing latency, resilience, or control, and with reduced management complexity.

In this keynote speech, we will discuss:

  • The network architecture and the cloud networking technologies that underlie on-cloud solutions.
  • From cloud to edge: distributed 5G core network solutions and cloud-supported “edge connectivity bubbles.”
  • The use cases addressed by these solutions: are take-away lessons and experiences from real-life deployments.
Biography:
Nicola di Pietro received a B.S. degree in mathematics from the University of Padova, Italy, in 2008. In 2010, he received his M.S. degree in mathematics jointly from the University of Padova, Italy, and the University of Bordeaux, France, within the framework of the international ALGANT program. He received his Ph.D. degree in mathematics from the University of Bordeaux, France, in 2014.
During the years of his doctoral studies, he was a Research Engineer with the European R&D Center of Mitsubishi Electric in Rennes, France. From 2014 to 2016, he was an Associate Post-Doctoral Fellow at Texas A&M University in Qatar. From 2017 to 2021, he was a Research Engineer with CEA LETI in Grenoble, France. He is now a System Engineer at Athonet, Italy.
He has co-authored several research papers, published within IEEE journals, and presented at international conferences. His main interests are 5G and beyond-5G network architectures and core functionalities, network function virtualization, management and orchestration, information theory, and lattice error-correcting codes.
