OMEC for 5G Sustainable Ecosystems

Yeasterday we've closed the two-days IEEE SDN Workshop on "5G Sustainable Ecosystems and Open Mobile Edge Computing" (hosted at the TIM Future Centre in Venice)


I'm pleased to say that it has been a very successful event with a large international participation. The Workshop is structured in two events:

  • June 15th  "Toward Sustainable Ecosystems 5G" : main objective has been to elaborate and discuss technical and economic sustainability issues for the future 5G, in view of the ongoing of digital business transformation Telecommunications. Areas of discussions included both enabling technologies (SDN, NFV, Cloud-Edge-Fog Computing, A.I., etc) and potential economic impacts of this transformation
  • June 16th "Open Mobile Edge Cloud" as a new architectural paradigm paving the way towards 5G (see a former post of mine). OMEC is currently development in the context of IEEE SDN - Pre-Indusrtrial Commettee. Main objective has been to progressing its definition and collecting proposals for use-cases.


Several Service Providers from EU, US and Asia participated as well as Technology Providers and Academia representatives. Final goal - in fact- will be developing a larger and larger community suppoting and contributing to OMEC with open H/W and S/W approaches.
