Problem Statement and Objectives of the workshop

Online and mobile games have become central in the value chain. Digital games are an important driver of hardware and network capacity. The evolutions of games will also have an impact on networks. The session will try to answer from different perspectives the requirements for the development of networks and clouds.

What are the future trends of online and mobile games?

How will these trends make requirements of games evolve in terms of cloud / network constraints?

What are the network evolution paradigms which can match these requirements?

The session will be organized as follows:

  • Firstly game developers will express the high level requirements they have and what is the evolution in their perspective
  • Secondly a link will try to be made between these requirements and cloud/ network constraints: the different paradigms (centralized and distributed architectures, CDN/CCN concepts) will be examined vs. game performance requirements
  • An open discussion with the panel (completed with network experts) will follow at the end to define the issues to solve (technical, standardization...); also how this would translate to R&D work program will be discussed
