The program is led by the National Science Foundation, the nonprofit organization US Ignite, and a consortium of industry and academic leaders collaborating to better understand the unique challenges and opportunities created by next generation platforms for networking.
Oracle Communications will provide core network control, analytics and network orchestration technology to researchers and help them understand the impact of subscriber behavior, enhance orchestration, and bolster security. Oracle's contributions, in this groundbreaking initiative, will aid the advancement in wireless technology areas by:
The research and development from Oracle will assist in the understanding of protecting from network abuse through legitimate network connections to ensure even ‘trusted’ networks cannot abuse their access. This will include analyzing the impact from other networks through misconfigurations or malformed packets. Additionally, our contributions will help set up standards, procedures and principles for the Telecommunications cloud.
“We see an opportunity to bring the power and flexibility of the cloud to telecommunications,” said Doug Suriano, senior vice president and general manager, Oracle Communications. “As a means to better understand the impact of subscriber behaviors to traffic engineering, how analytics can enhance orchestration at the network and service levels, and how to bolster security of the control plane to protect against malicious behavior.”
