    The digital ecosystem is beginning to embrace Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) to improve and enable the creation of flexible networks that can adjust services based on customer need. This session will describe the opportunities that AI/Machine Learning represents for our marketplace and introduces fundamental concepts and terminology to level set participants for the working week ahead

    TM Forum’s Open Digital-Business Enablement System (ODES) and the Path to a Knowledge Defined Network (KDN)

    Digital transformation is very much the phrase on everyone’s lips. It’s a challenge the industry knows it must face, but with very little consensus as to how it might be achieved. There are very few standards to refer to, and as yet, precious few case studies of successful transformation projects. To enable quick but efficient transformation and take advantage of the tantalising rewards on offer, the TM Forum is working hard to develop a set of common tools and standards. In May, it launched its Digital Maturity Model, and will shortly launch its Open Digital-Business Enablement System Architecture (“ODES”).

    Conceived and developed by its members, the aim of TM Forum’s ODES is to create an industry-agreed, single architecture that will deliver all the capabilities previously siloed in independent BSS and OSS. It removes the barriers between the two to deliver the flexibility and lower cost base needed to embrace new opportunities, to deliver a truly digital customer experience, and to support the requirements of future, agile, real-time, service provider infrastructures based on SDN and NFV.

    ODES is a data centric architecture and is deigned to connect to future Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems. In the presentation we will explain the concept of the Knowledge Defined Network (KDN) with its closed loop automation and how this will become an absolute requirement for the future to enable the benefits of SDN and NFV to be fully realized.
