The purpose of these use cases is to identify application-specific service requirements which would leverage the contemplated next generation optical network and needed by users in different vertical industries.
Additions to the finalized reports, AI-Integrated Communications Use Case 1.0 and Cyber-Physical System Use Case 1.0, include three new focus areas that are crucial to the achievement of IOWN Global Forum’s mission:
- Smart Grid Management will contribute to a carbon-neutral society by predicting and controlling the rapid, dynamic changes in renewable energy supply and demand.
- Mobility Management will enable the collection and processing of data from vehicles and roadside sensors, enabling navigation services with energy optimal route information which is essential to contribute to carbon neutrality.
- Industry Management will include Process Plant Automation to address aging infrastructure, rising maintenance costs, worker safety and CO2 emission consumption
