A call for presentations
has been issued for the upcoming workshop, Mobile Communications & Fixed/Mobile Convergence - the realities
going forward. The event is to be held in Kiev, Ukraine,
12 - 14 September 2005 and will look at the current status of fixed-mobile
convergence and examine what the future holds.
There are now more mobile
users than fixed users globally. In many countries, the ratio of mobile to
fixed users is heavily in favour of mobile. This demographic shift requires an
essential re-examination of the relationship between fixed and mobile networks.
‘Mobility’ plays a key role in the development of next generation networks
It is anticipated that case
studies illustrating examples of convergence from around the world will help to
identify the needs and action plans for the region that this event is being
highlight ongoing work in ITU and elsewhere on mobile telecommunications
networks, in particular the work on IMT-2000, fixed mobile convergence and
guidelines on the transition of existing mobile networks to IMT-2000 / NGN.
The deadline to submit
abstracts (maximum 400 words) and biographies (maximum 200 words) is 31 July 2005.
