Big Data Pilot Demo Days: I-BiDaaS Application to the Telecommunication Sector Webinar

1

Hosted by BDV PPP, BigDataStack, I-BiDaaS, Track & Know and Policy Cloud joined forces in a series of online demonstrations of innovative Big Data Technologies unlocking the potential of various applications.

The second I-BiDaaS webinar of the Big Data Pilot Demo Days series under BDV PPP, I-BiDaaS Application to the Telecommunication Sector, was held on June 25th. The main goal of this big data pilot webinar was to demonstrate in a step by step fashion the I-BiDaaS self-service solution and its application to the telecommunication sector.

Dr. Dušan Jakovetić, I-BiDaaS Scientific & Technical Manager, started the webinar with an overview presentation of the I-BiDaaS project, including the motivation behind I-BiDaaS, the project’s vision and its applicability to different sectors. Dr. Ioannis Arapakis, Researcher at Telefonica Research, Barcelona, Spain, followed up and set the requirements of the Telefonica pilot study focusing on why Telefonica needs I-BiDaaS. Later on, Dr. Jakovetić made a more in-depth presentation of the I-BiDaaS architecture with its core technologies highlighting how I-BiDaaS successfully managed to address the Telefonica’s use-case requirements. During the final session, Dr. Arapakis proceeded with an extensive step by step demonstration of the I-BiDaaS solution of the following use cases: Dr. Dušan Jakovetić, I-BiDaaS Scientific & Technical Manager, started the webinar with an overview presentation of the I-BiDaaS project, including the motivation behind I-BiDaaS, the project’s vision and its applicability to different sectors.

During the final session, Dr. Arapakis proceeded with an extensive step by step demonstration of the I-BiDaaS solution of the following use cases:

Quality of Service in Call Centers: This use case addresses the challenge of developing speech technologies that transform audio calls into relevant information for the call centre that can be used to assess its performance and/or to screen automatically phone calls. The objective of this experiment is to test I-BiDaaS solution efficiency with respect to the automatic predicting of customer satisfaction.

Optimization of Placement of Telecommunication Equipment: The second use case aims to improve routing and placement of telecommunication equipment that is already in place, or to arrange accordingly the new equipment obtained. Different analytics algorithms and data processing methods are applied to synthetic data. The goal of this experiment is to test I-BiDaaS solution efficiency with respect to the optimization of placement of telecommunication equipment.

Accurate Location Prediction with High Traffic and Visibility: The third use case aims to optimize network operations by providing caches and optimal antenna locations. I-BiDaaS is developing algorithms in order to improve the routing and placement of the telecommunication equipment that is already in place or arrange accordingly the new equipment obtained. The goal of this experiment is to test I-BiDaaS solution efficiency with respect to the prediction of places with high traffic and congestion events in order to optimise their resource distribution.
