Nokia and Inria extend research partnership to address future challenges facing networks and distributed computing

Nokia and Inria announces the renewal of her in common Research Lab for the next four years. Those new phase was launched at an event in Paris on 14 November and the Presence of Thierry Klein, President, Nokia Bell Labs solutionpp Research, and Bruno sporty, Inria CEO.

Launched in 2008, the joint research lab brings together permanent scientists from the two partners with a newly created pool of PhD and post-doctoral scientists, with the strategic goal of solving the important scientific challenges associated with the evolution of networks and network applications. The focus of joint research is on the benefits of network and distributed resources for contextual and personalized experiences in the digitally connected world.

Future networks must connect digital, physical and human worlds to unleash the innate potential of humans in the metaverse era. Networks must have the ability to optimize a very wide range of customer-specific needs, for example in industrial applications. The network will develop enhanced sensing capabilities, and enhanced context awareness in terms of user status and intent, dynamically and automatically adapting connectivity to meet user needs.

The networks will be 100% cloud-native, supporting a distributed architecture. Efficiency, resilience, and agility are critical attributes, with zero-touch management and orchestration achieved through artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML)-driven autonomy. Devices cannot meet all computing needs and will rely on a combination of edge cloud and local no-device computing, resulting in a massively distributed computing architecture. Diversified applications and services require strict quality of service requirements, enabled by data/AI-native networks in a highly distributed computing and data environment.

The Nokia Bell Labs-Inria collaboration will contribute to solving these challenges by addressing three aspects:

  • Distributed learning about 6G: with the goal of enabling different AI applications operating in a distributed and cooperative manner throughout the system (core, network, edge, device), continuously learning and evolving.
  • AI-based smart network management: with the goal of providing analytics and reliable AI/ML for 5G-Advanced and 6G zero touch mobile resource management.
  • Network aware industrial applications: with the aim of optimizing and adapting industrial applications, such as cloud-based robot applications based on network performance and availability.

Bruno Sportisse, CEO of Inria, said: “Nokia Bell Labs is one of our major strategic partners and I am happy that we are strengthening our partnership. For Inria, working with a world leader with a European footprint like Nokia is one of our priorities, be it to position ourselves on major scientific issues, maintain joint scientific and technological excellence or have an impact on the scale of our work. The gradual evolution of our partnership also shows the importance of long-term relationships based on trust, within a common strategy and roadmap.Together with Nokia we will work on the new frontiers for 6G mobile networks, which pose new technological and theoretical challenges where software design and data exchange must be addressed together.
