At EuCNC 2019 in Valencia on 18-21 June, SliceNet managed to raise a high level of attention for its activities and results among a large international audience of experts and policy makers. The SliceNet team had a lot to show and present: 7 papers in the conference, a poster session, and an exhibition booth with 3 demos.

The SliceNet demonstrations in the exhibition showcased the capabilities of cognitive network slicing management enabled by machine learning. SliceNet’s innovative network management concept was demonstrated by Orange, DellEMC, and Eurecom in three vertical use cases – Smart Grid, Smart City, and Smart eHealth. Besides attracting numerous visitors, the SliceNet demo also attracted the EuCNC TV team. They filmed Marius Iordache from Orange Romania presenting the SliceNet use cases and achievements.

In addition to the exhibition, SliceNet was also very active in the conference sessions. For example, in a session on network security Slicenet‘s technical manager Qi Wang from UWS presented a novel approach for detecting mobile DDoS attacks in 5G networks. In another session, on ‘Artificial Intelligence for 5G Networks’, Salvatore Spadaro from Universitat Politecnica de Catalunya presented the SliceNet approach for a ‘QoE-oriented cognition-based management system for 5G slices’.
