Service providers are responsible for designing and managing among the most complex systems known to man.  Mobile networks are a good example of the kind of complexity that exists at scale today, while the cloud represents a new paradigm for computing that is arguably still in its infancy. This talk will provide an overview of current research projects in network management, cloud orchestration and cloud security at AT&T Labs.     

Reception to follow.
