ICIN 2017 in Paris – Register now on

Since 1989 the ICIN conferences have been bringing together leading internet and telecom experts from industry, universities and government worldwide. ICIN operates on a rigorous peer review process and has an enviable track record of identifying key technology and service trends – and analyzing their impact on business models – before they become widely recognized. ICIN conferences cover both technology and business issues. ICIN is well-known for thought-provoking presentations of the highest quality on emerging technology, architecture, and industry trends impacting intelligent communications services. the Conference will have these technical tracks:

  • Network and Service IT-zation – Chair Akihiro Nakao (University of Tokyo, Japan)
  • Internet of Things – Chair Luigi Atzori (University of Cagliari, Italy)
  • Actionable Big Data and Artificial Intelligence – Chair Corrado Moiso (TIM, Italy)

ITU Telecom World 2013 – Mobile Cloud Networking Session – Outcomes

About the Mobile Cloud Networking Session. In association with the Mobile Cloud Networking project.


Mobile Cloud Networks combine mobile communications with computing to run network functions in the cloud, enabling new business models at the inflection point between mobile and internet technologies. Running mobile network functions in the cloud reduces costs, and provides elasticity, scalability, on-demand provisioning, calibration and better performance. Operators need to invest in research and human capacity, innovating to create value in-house on this new platform, developing new apps and protocols without being locked in to equipment so is now, to manufacturers. avoid the risk of The losing time market to do space as cloud computing providers begin to move into networks the fusion of telecommunications and IT is not a one-way street.

Talk and Panel at the International FI-PPP workshop, FUSECO Forum 2013, Berlin

Text borrowed from the original post publised at the XiFi Website


With participation of more than 50 guests and speakers the international FI-PPP workshop successfully provided a comprehensive overview of the status of all currently running projects of the FI-PPP programme. By involving FIRE and EIT ICT Labs representatives, synergies and sustainability options were discussed and an outlook on the next phase was provided.


The workshop started with an overview of the current status of the FI-PPP at programme level. Subsequently, the status of the FI-PPP Core Platform [FIWARE], FI-PPP’s Usage Areas [FISTAR, FI-SPACE, FI-CONTENT, FINESCE, FITMAN), as well as the status and achievements of FI-PPP’s Infrastructure and Capacity Building projects [INFINITY, XIFI] were presented.


Additionally, a number of European FI-PPP nodes provided presentations about their status highlighting that they are already offering FI-PPP’s Generic Enablers for application development and deployment, and their portfolio is expected to grow over time. Live demonstrations were present at the event and showed capabilities of FI-PPP node deployments as well as Generic Enabler usage in Usage Areas.


With representatives and presentations from the European Commission, FI-PPP’s programme-wide coordination action CONCORD, Europe’s Future Internet Research and Experimentation (FIRE) initiative and the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) ICT Labs several options for sustaining FI-PPP’s results and approaches for future exploitations were discussed and synergies identified. Panel discussions about the upcoming phase III of the FI-PPP, as well as best strategies for participation of SMEs concluded the workshop.

A highlight at the demonstration space at the FUSECO Forum was the first demonstration of an early trial project running over an infrastructure node of the program. In particular the FI-STAR project demonstrated a first simple application running over the XIFI node available in Berlin.

    Presenting MCN at the EU-Korea Workshop

    Invited to the „Korea-EU Workshop: Exploring common research interests in the Future Internet“, 30 September, 1st and 2nd of October 2013

    This event follows the 2012 ISTAG report having identified Korea as a relevant third country to jointly perform targeted research in the field of Future Internet. It also benefits from the fact that both Korea and the EU have started focused programmatic initiatives in the Future Internet domain. The purpose of this workshop is consequently: In the short term, to identify Korean and EU projects with similar scopes and objectives to favour „twinning“ and information exchanges for the mutual benefits of the running activities; in the medium term, to identify a limited and focused set of research issues of common interests in the two regions which could form the basis of specific joint research in the various upcoming implementations of the Horizon 2020 research programme.

    There is an extensive track on „Innovative Internet Architectures“, and this is a perfect place to present „Mobile Cloud Networking„.

    Co-chairing ONIT 2013 @ IFIP/IEEE IM 2013

    About ONIT
    The 5th ONIT workshop is co-located at the 13th IFIP/IEEE International Symposium on Integrated Network Management (IM2013), which will take place in 2013 in the historical city centre of Ghent, Belgium. IM 2013 will be held 27-31 May 2013 at Ghent University, Belgium and the ONIT workshop will take place on Friday, May 31, 2013.

    This year’s theme: „Hot Topics in Fixed and Mobile Next Generation Network Evolution“

    Fixed and mobile broadband networks are constantly under transition. The Internet influence, namely the all-IP transition has led to major changes in the control and service protocols and platforms. The resulting fixed and mobile NGNs are being rolled out globally today and their current evolution is inspired by Over-The-Top (OTT) multimedia services and emerging M2M services. The convergence of different networking domains demands for standardized solutions in order to enable an open “plug&play” multivendor environment.

    The Future Internet is globally considered a hot research topic leading to even more drastic changes in these network architectures and technologies. In order to stimulate research and development in these complex environments and the prototyping and validation of new concepts, algorithms, protocols, services open testbeds and experimentation platforms, as well as open source software tools are of key importance.

    The Open NGN and IMS Testbeds (ONIT) workshop is an established and vivid international community, which has been sparked by the Open IMS project in the context of NGN in 2009 and has evolved with the related developments, such as OpenEPC for mobile broadband networks and the upcoming OpenMTC toolkit for emerging M2M platforms. As these pioneering testbed toolkits are just examples, there is much more available around the globe, which should be captured by the ONIT workshop.

    The 5th Workshop on Open NGN and IMS Testbed workshop 2013 (ONIT@IM2013) will give insights into the state-of-the-art technologies concerning open Next Generation Fixed and Mobile Broadband Packet Core Networks and testbeds at an international scale. A special focus of the 5th ONIT workshop lies on discussing challenges and opportunities of virtualizing telecommunication network technologies and applying SDN concepts on them. The objective is also to evaluate and share the experience on the quality and impact of such testbeds in order to improve current offerings and position them for future challenges. Therefore methodologies, mechanisms, concepts and research results, which address the design, deployment, prototyping and evaluation of Next Generation Fixed and Mobile Broadband Packet Core Networks, their evolution towards Future Internet and related application domains are target.

    Especially, the role of and requirements from open source software for Next Generation Fixed and Mobile Broadband Networks testbeds, as well as how such software and infrastructures can provide the required middleware between radio technologies like GSM, UMTS, HSPA, LTE, WiMAX or Wireless LAN and Future Internet as well as Machine-to-Machine communication networks, shall be discussed in depth. Also in scope will be the latest developments into standardization and research on topics related to Next Generation Broadband Networks, like the integration between IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) and new all-IP converged network technologies as Evolved Packet Core (EPC) based networks, with special insight on how cost-effective and accelerated R&D on Voice-over-LTE (VoLTE) can happen on traditionally difficult fields with the help of open testbeds.
