together with the US Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS) will
hold a workshop, Next Generation Network
Technology and Standardization at the Mandalay Bay Convention Centre in Las Vegas, USA,
from 19 to 20 March 2006. This workshop will be held during the TelecomNEXT event.
Standardization work is now well underway in the ITU-T, ATIS and other SDOs.
Following the success of the ITU-Tís Focus Group on NGN (FGNGN), the
establishment of the NGN Global Standards Initiative (NGN-GSI) in ITU-T and the
activities within the ATIS NGN Focus Group and Technical committees, this
free workshop will be an opportunity to review the status of the work, identify
technology trends, and seek to identify areas where the ITU-T and ATIS together
with regional experts can further coordinate their standardization work.
ATIS has kindly negotiated
registration rates for workshop participants who are also interested in
attending TelecomNEXT. For details please see http://www.techthink.org/registration.html
