Aim and Scope
MONAMI 2015 aims at bringing together top researchers, academics and practitioners specializing in the area of Mobile Network Management, Service Management, Virtualization and Object Management.
Multiaccess and resource management, mobility management, and network management have emerged as core topics in the design, deployment and operation of current and future networks. Yet, they are treated as separate, isolated domains with very little interaction between the experts in these fields and lack cross-pollination. Recently, new avant-garde techniques and solutions have emerged; as notable examples, Network Function Virtualization, Software-Defined Networking, Network Virtualization and the Cloud Paradigm have taken roots. All in all, these techniques bring about new requirements and scientific challenges, and migration strategies are required to provide a smooth transition from today’s legacy systems to future systems. At the same time new wireless broadband access technologies, in what has been referred to as 5G, are posing new challenges and requirements that need to be taken into account; energy efficiency, densification, offloading are examples of the new issues the scientific community is currently addressing.
MONAMI 2015 offers the opportunity to leading researchers, industry professionals and academics around the world to meet and discuss the latest advances in these areas and present results related to technologies for true plug-and-play networking, efficient use of all infrastructure investments, and access competition. The aim of the forum is to disseminate the latest innovative mobile network solutions for increased competition and cooperation in an environment with a multitude of access technologies, network operators and business actors.
