The global communication network that connects people and devices with each other is the most complex system on the face of our planet. This network continues to undergo a massive transformation from hardware to software and from being reactive to being proactive. Today, the network is shifting to a second generation – a shift toward a software-centric network in which service functions are virtualized and run on commodity cloud hardware.

Over the next decade, the industry will be launching a third generation of this network transformation; the autonomous network. The autonomous network is powered by data and adopts artificial intelligence (AI). Autonomous networks are self-healing and are capable of learning quickly and defending themselves against all forms of cyber-attacks.
This panel will discuss the challenges, applications and the future of the autonomous network.
