Keynote: Doing More With More: Big Data, Deep Analytics and Algorithms

Abstract Big data is transforming many fields of human endeavor, from science and engineering to how businesses and governments operate. The application of deep analytics to big data goes beyond summary statistics and visualizations, and involves more complex analysis to yield new insights and efficiencies. While application areas of big data + analytics differ widely, a key insight is that there is unity in the underlying computational problems.

In this talk, Dr. Erramilli will illustrate this point with examples drawn from networking, bioinformatics and manufacturing, and discuss computational platforms and algorithms, which are the key enablers of the application of deep analytics to big data. The key pieces (algorithms, software, platforms) are now in place for enterprises to unlock value from the stores of big data now being routinely compiled, including network data.

Keynote: Security and Mobility Challenges for Communications beyond 2020

Abstract: Communication infrastructures beyond 2020 bring new capabilities and capacities towards very rich digital experiences where devices are no longer simply connected to services but will become embedded in spaces, places and buildings, supporting our leisure, business and social needs. Networks will be the single, most indispensable element of binding individual societies, industries, economies, and humans in this complex scenario, building an infrastructure of large-scale, complex and highly networked systems whose efficiency, sustainability and protection would require intelligent, interoperable and secure information communication technology (ICT) solutions and novel business models. The future infrastructure is about capturing data, analyzing it to seek out efficiencies, and invoking an autonomic response to instantly capture those efficiencies.

This key note talk will address the evolution of networks and communication technologies and the research and business challenges to be overcome for ensuring security and mobility in the communication world beyond 2020.

Smart Data Pricing

Abstract: In an era defined by $10 per GB and 108% annual growth rate of capacity demand, Smart Data Pricing (SDP) will play a major role in the future of mobile, broadband, and content. Smart pricing can refer to (a) usage pricing with throttling/booster, (b) time/location/app/congestion dependent dynamic pricing, (c) two-sided 1-800 pricing, (d) WiFi offloading/proactive caching, (e) quota-aware content distribution... and any of the above. It can help create happier consumers/enterprise users, less congestion and better QoE, lower CapEx/OpEx, higher revenue/profit margin, less churn, more consumption and ad revenue to content/app providers. But it also requires smart interfaces among pipe providers and content/app providers, and a combination of smart ideas, smart execution, and smart marketing.

We at Princeton University's EDGE Lab have had the opportunity to interact with many ISPs and vendors in recent years on fundamental research, system implementation, and user trial of SDP. This talk summarizes what we learned about the win-win that awaits the whole ecosystem.

SAP: Storage Aware Protocols for Seamless Integration of Heterogeneous Network Architectures

Abstract: The Internet has evolved from being a wired network to a network of mobile and intermittently connected devices. Several architectures such as wireless mesh, sensors, delay tolerant and Internet of Things are becoming integral parts of the Internet and the traffic has become content intensive. This has motivated research in protocols that provide seamless communication across these heterogeneous networks. We propose set of storage aware protocols (SAP) at the network and transport layers. The network protocol uses historical status of routes and availability of storage on routers to make data forwarding decision. Data may be locally stored in case routes are unfavorable or not available. The transport protocols preserve session states and dynamically elect proxies for short/long term caching when the user is disconnected or has a slow/expensive connection to the network. The end goal is to design a protocol stack or stacks (through network virtualization) that work reasonably well with both stored content and live streaming applications. However, the first challenge is to enable efficient delivery of push based content such as Kindle Newsstand, Podcasts, Internet of Things, cloud backups.….as they start competing for bandwidth with each other and with live data streaming applications. Evaluation plan for these ideas includes controlled simulation, testbed experiments and trial alongside existing infrastructure in a small college campus.

Keynote: Mobility and Security Concerns - A Transit Agency Perspective

Abstract:Transit agencies are rapidly evolving to embrace wireless technology. While traditional communication between drivers and command centers have always been wireless, the primary mode of communication is gradually switching from voice to data. In terms of mobility, long distance trains set the standard; 230km/hour is the current bench mark for mobility in wireless.

Public safety systems that operate on licensed bands need specific features such as group call, dispatch details, vehicle location information, traffic congestion etc that cannot be supported by commercial systems. Also, 911 centers have mandated voice calls only (no text messages).

However, some of the features from commercial systems are useful for passenger and related services that are rapidly getting deployed. WiFi on buses and trains, fare payment on train and at stations using “tap and go” are becoming the norm. All of them are based on cellular technology and its sophistication in terms of hand off and end-to-end authentication with encryption.

Some of the security and mobility related issues are addressed in this talk – importance of security as related to safety of passengers is discussed.
