"Future Intent-Based Networking: On the QoS Robust and Energy Efficient Heterogeneous Software Defined Networks" will be published
On January 15. 2022, the anthology "Future Intent-Based Networking: On the QoS Robust and Energy Efficient Heterogeneous Software Defined Networks" by editors Mikhailo Klymash, Mykola Beshley, and Andriy Luntovskyy will be published by Springer International Publishing. The 530-page work deals with so-called intent-based networking (IBN), which is based on the renowned concept of SDN (Software-Defined Networking) that represents one of the most important new ways of expanding the network infrastructure. IBN takes into account business intents and implements them in appropriate network configurations for all network nodes and coupling devices.
This minimizes manual effort, provides an additional layer (stratum) of network management, and the capacity to perform appropriate network analysis and optimization, e.g., by means of ML (machine learning). This type of centralized and software-defined solution also incorporates process automation and proactive control of the network infrastructure.
This results in the optimization of important criteria such as network operating costs, application response times and energy consumption. Additionally, network reliability and performance (QoS - Quality of Service) are improved and network security and flexibility increased. This will prove beneficial for existing networks as well as for more advanced 5G and Beyond mobile networks, the emerging 6G, and the Internet of Things (IoT) operating alongside cloud systems.
Future intent-based networks will reach a completely new level of self-awareness, self-configuration, self-optimization, self-restoration, and self-protection.
The editors and authors include Prof. Dr. Andriy Luntovskyy, who teaches in the field of information technology at Berufsakademie Sachsen in Dresden, and his two colleagues Prof. Dr. Mikhailo Klymash (Head of the Department of Telecommunications) and Assoc. Prof. Dr. habil. Mykola Beshley from the Ukrainian partner university "Lvivska Polytechnika".
The presented Springer book is published as part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering No. 831 series and consists of 28 chapters that are based on recent IBN research. Despite the restrictions imposed by the COVID-19 pandamic, the book was completed in a relatively short period of time. The editors came up with initial ideas in January 2021, the implementation, review and release of the book project were completed in early August 2021, so that with the typesetting and technological processing completed, the book can be published in January 2022.
The book provides a collection of key research findings for the future application of intent-based networking contributed by various research groups from Ukraine, Germany, Slovak Republic, Switzerland, South Korea, China, Czech Republic, Poland, Brazil, Belarus, and Israel. The authors of the chapters in this anthology present advanced research findings in their scientific fields.
