The University of Glasgow is highlighting the “key role” its researchers have played in the development of newly agreed international standards for autonomous networks.
According to a statement from the university, the Autonomous Networks - Architecture Framework (Y.3061) received official consent at the International Telecommunications Union’s ITU-T SG13 meeting in Geneva last November. It has now been officially adopted as an international standard.
The University’s Dr Paul Harvey co-chairs a focus group working on the standards, known as the ITU-T Focus Group on Autonomous Networks. The group’s work “studies the technical enablers, use cases, interoperable architecture, trustworthiness, and proof-of-concepts necessary to create telecoms networks which can operate with minimal human intervention.”
A spokesperson for the university said: “Widespread adoption of the standard could enable a new generation of networks which use emergent and generative AI-driven approaches to monitor their own operations and adapt to solve technical problems, on-demand and beyond pre-defined design bounds.
"These faster, more resilient networks could support a wide range of more advanced communications technologies beyond the current capabilities of 5G devices and systems. Those improved networks could underpin advances in technologies including self-driving cars, remote medicine, and industrial automation.”
