Panel – How do Industrial perspectives on Cloud Network Slicing stand compared to academic viewpoints?

Rationale: All stakeholders in the cloud and networking community are working towards some forms of realization of the Slicing concept. Academia is tackling many of the foundational aspects and more future-thinking visions on the broadest and deepest concepts around cloud network slicing, with end-to-end multi-domain ambitions, resource heterogeneity, and novel as-a-Service models. Industry perspectives from operators, equipment manufacturers, independent software vendors, solutions integrators, and so on, have, as usual, different agendas resulting in non-uniform understanding and common approach towards Slicing. The fragmented landscape around standardization efforts on Slicing is evidence of the different views in the state of affairs. In this panel, we will try to understand where are the most likely intersections and opportunities to effectively joint efforts between the Industry and Academy. At the same time, we will try to find out how assumptions from academic works may be too far from the realities and priorities of the industry.
