Autonomous Networks (AN) are considered one of the most important evolutions in order to enable Digital Transformation, offering new service opportunities and significant cost saving in network operation. It is one of the most attractive environments where to leverage Artificial Intelligence in the Network and activities around Autonomous Networks have gained in momentum in Standards and ICT Industry. Several ETSI groups and committees are conducting standardization projects related to AN, mixing a large range of expertise. During this workshop, we will discuss latest status of AN standardization in ETSI, key achievements and relevant trends as well as benefits of autonomous networks. Chaired by Luigi Licciardi, editor of the related whitepaper, the session will involve representatives from key ETSI Technical Groups: ISG ENI (Experimental Networked Intelligence), ISG MEC (Multi-access Edge Computing), ISG NFV (Network Functions Virtualisation), ISG ZSM (Zero Touch Network and service Management) and ISG F5G (fifth Generation Fixed network). The transition towards cognitive Autonomous Networks becomes an urgent necessity to unlock the business potential of 5G and beyond. The transition will be gradual, with the ultimate goal to enable service delivery with agility and speed and ensure the economic sustainability of the very diverse set of services offered by Digital Service Providers. ETSI is playing a leading role in the definition, study, specification, and demonstration of the extensive enabling technologies and aspects related to Autonomous Networks.
