IEEE ICCC 2023 Workshop on

Computing Power Network (CPN) for 6G and Future Networks

Dalian, China|10-12 August 2023



Computing Power Network (CPN), which is a new network architecture and paradigm with computing-measurable, perceptible, distributable, dispatchable and manageable capabilities for 6G and future networks. Computing Power Network (CPN) is the joint optimization of computing and network resources, which has become a hot topic in the industries of information technology and communication technology. It connects the diverse computing power of the cloud-edge-end in network to achieve deep integration and collaborative awareness between computing and networking. The computing-power network solves the scalability problem caused by the limited resources of a single edge computing node, so that applications can access resources distributed in different locations intelligently, elastically and on-demand in real time. Computing power network can better schedule computing tasks flexibly according to business needs, resource load, network conditions and other multidimensional factors, and reduce the cost of operation and maintenance in mobile computing. It not only ensures the user experience, but also improves the overall efficiency and resource utilization of the network.

Meanwhile, computing power network (CPN) framework and architecture (Y.CPN-Arch) recommendation has been approved at ITU-T SG13 Rapporteur meeting which recommendation number Y.2501. ITU-T opened the 2500 series number for “Computing Power Networks”, and the related work items have been started and are in progress.

Computing Power Network will provide flexible and collaborative computing power to achieve high throughput of the network, agile connection of edge nodes and balanced selection of various resource, meet the computing power requirements of delay-sensitive and computing-intensive tasks and in the 6G mobile communication era and future networks, and realize pervasive computing for information acquisition and processing at anytime, anywhere, embracing the new era of machine intelligence.
