SEOUL — KT, South Korea’s largest telecommunications company, has developed a data lake portal system for the Korea Advanced Research Network (KOREN), a nationwide superfast Internet backbone network specially designed to test technologies of future networks. The data lake portal will provide information about network failures, abnormal Internet data traffic, and irregular optical signals.

A data lake is a centralized data storage area that collects structured and unstructured data generated over a network. The collected data can be analyzed and further processed to identify problems and find solutions to solve them. A data lake can be interconnected with an AI-based system for automatic analysis using low-cost storage.

KOREN is South Korea’s super-fast Internet backbone network used by many research institutes, organizations, and other government bodies to test and demonstrate Internet-related technologies. Backbone has been applied with quantum cryptography and AI-based machine learning by other research bodies.

KT said the company has finished establishing a data lake portal system for KOREN. The system, which will go live in early January 2023, will provide network engineers with various data related to network malfunctions. The data will later be used for research and development of network management systems.

“The data lake portal system will become an artificial intelligence center that everyone can freely use by reducing the concentration for R&D of artificial intelligence-based network technologies,” said the head of KT’s corporate communication working group , Lee Seung-ho, in a statement on December 26.
