ONDM 2015 CONFERENCE

The 19th edition of the Optical Networks Design and Modelling (ONDM 2015) Conference was held in Pisa, Italy on May 11-14, 2015 and was organized by Scuola Superiore Sant'Anna (SSSA), and Consorzio Nazionale Interuniversitario per le Telecomunicazioni (CNIT).

Along with the tradition of previous editions of this conference, ONDM 2015 addressed cutting-edge research in established areas such as optical networking, optical systems, as well as emerging topics like novel Internet architectures, new optical network architectures for the Cloud/DataCenter, wireless optical networks and photonic integrated networks.

ONDM 2015 was a 3 full-day event including three keynote lectures, nine invited papers, regular papers and a workshop organized by the PACE project. ONDM 2015 was technically co-sponsored by the IFIP TC 6 (working group 6.10), by IEEE and by the IEEE Communication Society with the endorsement of the TAOS and ONTC.

The conference was also supported by Ericsson, Nextworks, Interoute and FP7 PACE project.

More than 80 high quality technical papers were submitted by researchers from 29 countries all over the world. All submitted papers were peer reviewed by the Members of the Technical Program Committee and external reviewers. The authors of the accepted papers belong to 20 countries from Europe, the Americas, Africa, the Middle and Far East. Overall, 20 countries were represented at the conference by the 85 delegates that attended the event.
The accepted 35 contributions, together with 9 invited papers and 3 keynote talks were organized into 10 oral and one poster sessions. The workshop of the FP7 PACE (Next Steps in PAth Computation Element (PCE) Architectures: From Software-Defined Concepts to Standards, Interoperability and Deployment) project was integrated as a session of the conference.

Authors of 10 selected papers were invited to submit an extended version of their work to a Special Issue of the Springer Photonic Network Communications Journal.
Three top-scored paper award were given to the three best works selected among the technical contributions presented at the oral sessions.

Our appreciation goes to the members of the Technical Program Committee for the effort in reviewing the papers, selecting the best contributions, and setting up the technical program of the conference.
The planning and organization of a conference such as ONDM involve a lot of effort from many people. Our sincere thanks go to the Local Organizers for their hard work and dedication.
We hope that the attendees enjoyed the technical program, the stay in Pisa, and the social events of the conference.

Abstract:

Global cellular networks are currently undergoing a major paradigm shift to cope with the unprecedented growth of mobile data traffic driven by the popularity of smart phones and mobile-connected tablets running diverse data-centric applications. As a result, the backhaul is becoming a major performance-limiting factor and thus a pressing concern in mobile networks. In fiber-wireless (FiWi) enhanced LTE-Advanced heterogeneous networks (HetNets), the traditional barriers between coverage-centric 4G mobile networks and capacity-centric FiWi broadband access networks based on data-centric Ethernet technologies are removed in order to benefit from resulting fiber backhaul sharing and WiFi offloading capabilities in response to the mobile data explosion. Despite recent progress on backhaul-aware 4G studies with capacity-limited backhaul links, the performance-limiting impact of backhaul latency and reliability has not been examined in sufficient detail previously. This talk aims at sharing recent insights into the performance-limiting impact of backhaul latency and reliability issues as well as temporal and spatial WiFi offloading constraints in unified FiWi-HetNets. Given the integrative vision of 5G, we also provide some lessons learned from optical fiber networks in the past, including their cross-disciplinary role in smart grids, to help wireless network researchers avoid the same or similar pitfalls in their quest for a ubiquitous, ultra-high bandwidth communication infrastructure, commonly referred to as 5G vision.

Antonio Manzalini, "Towards 5G: Challenges, Risks and Opportunities"

Antonio Manzalini received the M. Sc. Degree in Electronic Engineering from the Politecnico of Turin. In 1990 he joined CSELT, the Research Centre of the Telecom Italia Group. He started his activities on research and development of technologies and solutions for optical networking. In this avenue of activities, he was actively involved in leading positions in several EURESCOM and international Project partly funded by European Commission (e.g., MWTN, LION, NOBEL). He was also Chair (during two consecutive Study Periods) of two ITU-T Questions in charge of ITU-T Recommendations on optical transport networks (e.g., SDH, OTN). He is author of a book on Network Synchronization (for SDH) and his results are published in about 100 papers. He has 5 patents on network and systems. In 2003, given his contributions to the optical networking advances, he was appointed as member of the Scientific Committee of Centre Tecnologic de Telecomunicacions de Catalunya. In 2008 he has been awarded with the International Certification as Project Manager by the PMI. He has been member of technical and program committee of several IEEE Conferences. He is Chairing the IEEE Community on SDN and he is leading the EIT ICT Labs Activity "SDN@Edges". He is currently joining the Strategy and Innovation Dept. of Telecom Italia (Future Centre) addressing future Telco-ICT networks and services technologies (e.g., Software Defined Networks, Network Function Virtualization and 5G) enabling innovative services scenarios.

Abstract:

Diffusion of ultra-broadband, performance advances in chipsets, (and, as such, in terminals, machines and in any ICT systems), tumbling hardware costs and a growing availability of Open Source software are creating the conditions for a change of paradigm in designing, exploiting and operating future Telco networks and services. In fact, the combined effect of these drivers is determining a rapid acceleration of the pace of innovation of Telco infrastructures by automating processes, increasing flexibility and programmability (via APIs) and by optimizing the use of resources. Cloud and Fog Computing, Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) are just different facets of this evolutionary trend (called IT-sation or Softwarisation of infrastructures), which is bringing towards OPEX- centric business models. This is lowering "thresholds" for new Players to enter the telecommunications and ICT markets, thus creating new risks and opportunities, new roles, relationships, value chains and accelerating the transition towards the Digital Society and Economy. This coming wave of innovation will have concrete exploitations and socio-economic impact by 2020 through the deployment of 5G infrastructure. 5G will be more than a next step beyond 4G: it will become the "Nervous System" of the Digital Society and Economy, a truly converged and massively dense telecommunication infrastructure, deeply integrating IT (e.g., processing and storage systems) with the Networks (radio, wireless and wired). Eventually, 5G will become the future pervasive, highly flexible infrastructure, supported by ultra-low latency radio connectivity and optical networking, capable of hooking a sheer number of smart terminals, devices, machines, things, cars, drones and robots... with the enormous processing and storage power available in the Cloud.

Workshop Scope
The 3rd PACE Workshop will be collocated within the 14th International Conference on Optical Design and Modeling (ONDM 2015) in Pisa, Italy, on May 13, 2015.
Constraint-based path computation is recognized as one of the key enablers of effective resource utilization in transport networks., The Path Computation Element (PCE), defined as the functional element devoted to path computation, has opened the way to advanced traffic engineering solutions in (G)MPLS network scenarios. The adoption of the PCE architecture in multi-layer and multi-domain scenarios has been demonstrated to achieve a good compromise between scalability and effective traffic engineering performance. Stateful extensions allow path computation update/report on existing connections and direct instantiation. Standardization and support of PCE has been promoted by IETF.
In such a context, most recent efforts have been dedicated to extend control functions towards the emerging network softwarisation vision, which includes the software-defined networking (SDN), network virtualization functions (NFV) approaches and the innovative converged fiber-wireless 5G networks. Path computation is then evolving to a more generalized service/resource computation. However, such extensions are enforced on control architectures natively designed to operate in fixed hardware-oriented network infrastructure, thus leading to potential inefficiencies and limitations.
With respect to the previous editions of the PACE Workshop, focusing on new PCE uses and PCE positioning, respectively, the specific aim of this workshop is to re-think specific control/management functions fully enabling the software-defined paradigm in both existing and next generation network infrastructures, providing suitable inter-layer/domain/stratum architectures and interfaces able to support advanced network programmability/re-configurability including virtualization, and converged data models such as YANG to efficiently describe and handle generalized resources.
The half-day workshop is organized by the PACE consortium and open for participation and interactive discussion to all ONDM 2015 attendees. The point of view and the vision of ITC vendors, operators and research community will be presented and discussed. The workshop will be focused on the following topics:
