5th International IFIP/IEEE Workshop on Open NGN and IMS Testbeds (ONIT 2013)
'Hot topics in fixed and mobile next generation network evolution' is the subtitle of the 5th International IFIP/IEEE Workshop on Open NGN and IMS Testbeds (ONIT), which will take place in the city of Ghent, Belgium on 31 May.
Focus of the workshop is the changing nature of fixed and mobile broadband networks, that are adapting to major changes in control and services that are caused by the transition to all-IP communication.
ONIT is about the state-of-the-art technologies for the next generation of fixed and mobile broadband packet core networks. The participants will discuss challenges and opportunities of virtualizing telecommunication network technologies and applying concepts of software-defined networking.
The organisation promises in-depth discussion of "the role of and requirements of open source software for the next generation of fixed and mobile broadband networks". Such software and infrastructures can become the bridge between radio technologies, including GSM, UMTS, HSPA and LTE, and the Future Internet and even Machine-to-Machine communication networks.
Note that ONIT is held in conjunction with 13th IFIP/IEEE Symposium on Integrated Network and Service Management (IM 2013). For detailed venue, registration, accommodation and visa information, please refer to the IM 2013 website.
