Telco Cloud Resilience: Synergies Between Fault and Security Management

  • Gajic B.
  • Michalopoulos D.
  • Trapero R.

This work capitalizes on the concept of network function virtualization at the telco cloud, and presents a joint study between fault management and security management. Specifically, the commonalities of fault and security management are put forward, along with a resource allocation study in common slice deployments. In this regard, a security threat analysis is presented, which sheds light onto the impact of security threats on network fault management. The interdependence between security and fault management is highlighted via three use cases, where distinct levels of resource trade-offs are identified. Along with such use cases, the paper provides also an overview of the resulting resource allocation process, where the requirements of the corresponding slice are analyzed towards an overall efficient resource usage.

Protecting photonic quantum states using topology

  • Blanco-Redondo A.

The use of topology to protect quantum information is well-known to the condensed-matter community and, indeed, topological quantum computing is a bursting field of research and one of the competing avenues to demonstrate that quantum computers can complete certain problems that classical computers cannot. In photonics, however, we are only ...

  • Saniee I.
  • Weldon M.

This paper takes a fresh look at the debate over the relationship between digital technology and productivity. The argument of economic historian Robert J. Gordon is that digital technology will not lead to increases in productivity such as we saw in the last century, based on his analysis of the ...
