Internet Technologies and Softwarization

Prof. Dr. Holger Karl

The internet, mobile access networks, or data centers share a trend: Fixed, built-in functionality is replaced by software for forwarding packets, providing access to cached data, managing the network, and  realizing functionality akin to microservices in general-purpose software. This paves the way to new approaches for "zero-touch networking", e.g., by machine learning directly inside the network. It also enables new scenarios, e.g., controlling machines where short latency matters.
