The Cognet proposal will focus on applying Machine Learning research to these domains to enable the level of Network Management technology required to fulfil the 5G vision

WP1

WP1 - Project Coordination

Project Coordination

WP1 is responsible for all project administrative, technical coordination, innovation management, and quality management. WP1 has a series of complementary tasks each of which focuses on a particular management aspect of the project. In addition to administrative and technical project coordination, this WP deals with the management of project innovations, including IPR, with the inclusion of a dedicated Innovation Manager role.

WP2

Requirements and Architecture

WP2 - Requirements and Architecture

The overall goal of WP2 is to identify the project requirements, scenarios and use cases which will drive all project technical activities. A set of initial scenarios will be developed by the project team, and these will be used as the basis for our requirements, focusing on business, stakeholder and technical aspects. Additionally this work package will specify all technical decisions and architectural viewpoints of the CogNet system.

WP3

Advanced Machine Learning for Data Filtering, Classification and Prediction

WP3 - Advanced Machine Learning for Data Filtering, Classification and Prediction

WP3 will focus on the development and adaption of Machine Learning algorithms to filter, classify and develop insights into the data that will be used to fulfil the use cases being researched in WP4 and WP5.

WP4

Network Resource Management

WP4 - Network Resource Management

WP4 and WP5 represent some the core applications of the CogNet project. WP4 will focus on the application of Machine Learning to Resource Requirement Prediction and Efficiency for Telecoms Networks with the particular application being the autonomic management of resources for Network Function Virtualisation.

WP5

Network Security & Resilience

WP5

WP5 will focus on the application of Machine Learning to Security issues (including fraud detection, intruder detection, subversion of machine purpose) and Network Resilience (Error detection and correction, performance degradation and correction). This research will also feed into applications in Autonomic network management.

WP6

Validation & Integration

WP6 - Validation & Integration

The objective of WP6 is to integrate all developed software components and to carry out test and validation of same. WP6 also focuses on integration of the core CogNet system with complementary technologies with a particular focus on data visualisation, and on the development of a number of exemplar demonstrators to highlight the value of the key CogNet innovations.

WP7

Dissemination, standardization, exploitation & techno-economic analysis

WP7 - Dissemination, standardization, exploitation & techno-economic analysis

WP7 is dedicated to the dissemination and exploitation of project results. Dissemination and exploitation is a key element in the project. The objective is to reach out to relevant communities of stakeholders through a comprehensive dissemination and communication strategy.
