Fachgespräch Network Softwarization

Motivation

The notion of "network softwarization" has gained significant traction over the last few years, providing an umbrella term for separate yet complementary approaches like software-defined networking (SDN), network function virtualization (NFV), but also techniques like reconfigurable radio systems. It is considered a pivotal concept for the evolution of the Internet, 5G mobile networks, as well as data centre networks.

This workshop continues its first iteration intends to bring together researchers from various perspectives, ranging from hardware architectures that enable softwarization (e.g., FPGAs in mobile fronthauls), over suitable network architectures (e.g., the relationship of virtualization and slicing), to suitable software engineering concepts (e.g., DevOps for softwarized networks). We invite interested participants from both academic and industrial backgrounds.
