Hi, all,

Although there are many understanding for Intelligence-Defined Network, we are actually using this IDN as a term reference to the SDN-beyond architecture that we presented in IETF97, see the below link. A reference model is presented in page 3, while potential standardization works is presented in page 9. 


Although it might be a little bit too early for AI/ML in network giving the recent story of the concluded proposed NMLRG, we still would like to call for interests in IDN. Anybody (on site in Chicago this week) are interested in this or even wider topics regarding to AI/ML in network, please contact me on jiangsheng@huawei.com . Then we may have an informal meeting to discuss some common interests and potential future activities (not any activities in IETF, but also other STO or experimental trails, etc.)  on Thursday morning.

FYI, we have already working on a Work Item, called IDN in the ETSI NGP (Next Generation Protocol) ISG, links below.


Meanwhile, please do use this mail list as a forum to discuss any topics that may applying AI/ML into network area.

Best regards,
