OBJECTIVES The key objective for this white paper is to provide an update on progress since we published the first joint-operator white paper on Network Functions Virtualisation in October 2012 and initiated the Network Functions Industry Specification Group (NFV ISG) under the auspices of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).  This… (More)
— A powerful path computation element is a must for the next-generation IP-over-Optical networks to support on-demand service provisioning crossing layers. The main purpose of path computation in multi-layer networks (MLN) is to enable traffic engineering (TE) under a multitude of constraints. A common objective of such traffic engineering is to minimize… (More)
Sensing of human motion is very important for human-computer interactive applications such as virtual reality, gesture recognition, and communication. A vision system is suitable for human-computer interaction since this involves passive sensing and the system can estimate the motion of the user without any discomfort for the user. In this paper, we propose… (More)
SUMMARY Sensing of human motion is very important for hu-mancomputer interactive applications such as virtual reality , gesture recognition, and communication. A vision system is suitable for humancomputer interaction since this involves passive sensing and the system can estimate the motion of the user without any discomfort for the user.

OBJECTIVES This is a non-proprietary white paper authored by network operators. The key objective for this white paper is to outline the benefits, enablers and challenges for Network Functions Virtualisation (as distinct from Cloud/SDN) and the rationale for encouraging an international collaboration to accelerate development and deployment of interoperable… (More)
—Today's ICT system necessarily involves multiple system domains complying with different management models. Integration of domain-specific management models is required to achieve, for example, agile fault localization in a huge ICT system, but this has not been efficiently achieved due to the difficulty in bridging multiple management models. To address… (More)
— Dynamic path computation and optimization is performance evaluation and comparison of the investigated optimization solutions and schemes.
