Held in even-numbered years since 1988, IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium, NOMS 2016 will follow the 28 years tradition of NOMS as the primary IEEE Communications Society’s forum for technical exchange on management of information and communication technology focusing on research, development, integration, standards, services, and user communities. NOMS 2016 focuses on the theme “Managing Everything toward a Secure, Smart, and Hyperconnected World,” presenting recent, emerging approaches, and technical solutions for dealing with future network and ICT infrastructures, as well as with novel services provided in smart and hyper-connected environments (e.g., smart cities, Internet of Things).

Argela will be presenting two papers during IEEE NOMS :

  • Standalone eNode-B Design with Integrated Virtual EPC in Public Safety Networks, by Can Altay, Nazlı Zeynep Bozdemir,  and Erdoğan Camcıoğlu.(This paper proposes a standalone eNode-B architecture, which deploys its own integrated virtual EPC to ensure service without backhaul connection. The proposed standalone eNode-Bs are also designed to establish backhaul connection with each other to extend the coverage without need for a central EPC structure. Standalone LTE solutions for PSNs that fall within the scope of this paper, aim to offer resiliency, robustness, dynamicity, and high quality service. The basic LTE functions and further design challenges, related to connected or non-connected standalone eNode-Bs, are discussed through the paper.)
  • Flexible Bandwidth-Based Virtual Network Embedding by Cihangir Besiktas, Didem Gözüpek, Aydin Ulas, Erhan Lokman Özcan Özyurt and Kazim Ulusoy.(The paper is on Software-Defined Networks (SDN) based virtual network embedding in physical networks according to various criteria including virtual network topology, bandwidth, and location.)

Argela Demo Day to AT&T, Verizon, DOCOMO, SK Telecom and Nokia


Argela Demo Day to AT&T, Verizon, DOCOMO, SK Telecom and Nokia at its Sunnyvale Office

Argela hosted a Demo Day for directors and senior engineers from AT&T, Verizon, DOCOMO, SK Telecom and Nokia at its Sunnyvale office on April 19, 2016. The focus was Argela’s ProgRAN technology, which enables operators to dynamically create new RAN slices in real-time to serve different use cases. Dr. Oguz Sunay, CTO of Argela USA, gave a brief introduction to the patent-pending ProgRAN framework. Then, the ProgRAN team showed visitors how downlink and uplink slices could be created on an LTE network for both traditional and C-RAN deployments. The demo also showed that a RAN slice created for a multimedia flow guarantees pause-free 4K video streaming even when the serving base station is loaded. Visitors also watched how ProgRAN enables RAN slice handovers while maintaining slice settings across the network.
