    Invited Talk 1: “OpenStack in Telco: How Open HW/SW Drives Infrastructure Innovation”
    Dr. Kang-Won Lee, Senior Vice President, SK Telecom

    SKT has been at the forefront of providing advanced telco services. We are now preparing the 5G mobile services. To support next generation apps, network infrastructure should be composable, open and scalable. In essence, it should become more like a datacenter consisting of compute, network, storage infrastructure with various software layers for operation, control, and analysis. In this talk, I present the “all IT” network for 5G and how it is being built using open hardware and open software technologies. I will provide concrete examples of technology development that are necessary to build such networks and early experience from initial deployment.
