Introduction

At the kind invitation of the Tanzania Communications Regulatory Authority (TCRA), the International Telecommunications Union - Standardization Bureau (ITU-T) and the International Telecommunication Union - Development Bureau (ITU-D) are jointly organizing a Workshop on “Next Generation Networks” which will take place from 3-5 October 2006 inclusive, at the Markham Suites Hotels, Dar-Es-Salaam, in the United Republic of Tanzania.

The objectives of the seminar are twofold: first, to discuss the current trends, status and future evolution of Next Generation Networks technology and standardization, as being addressed by the ITU-T and share the experiences of NGN design, development and deployment. Central to these are: what areas of technology innovation hold the greatest promise for NGNs; what are the most innovative applications and services possible with NGNs? To this effect, issues revolving around NGN architecture, NGN technology and quality of service requirements, as well as evolution will be explored. Second, as NGNs are a major departure from the network today - these developments will likely change the ways of the telecommunication sector operates, NGN regulatory and policy issues for developing countries to exploit its full potential for development will also be discussed.

TSAG approved at its meeting (Geneva, 3-7 July 2006), the establishment of a Joint Coordination Activity on Network Aspects of Identification Systems (including RFID) (JCA-NID). Mr. Pierre-André Probst (OFCOM, Switzerland) was appointed as the Convenor of this activity.

JCA-NID is open to members and designated representatives of relevant Standards Development Organization and Forums.

The terms of reference of the JCA-NID are:

  • To examine the proposed deliverables of the correspondence group on network aspects of identification systems (including RFID), in order to improve them and use them as baselines texts. Comments are invited on the deliverables from the membership and SGs
  • To further develop and analyze the list of standardization items and associated roadmap
  • To forward specific standardization issues to relevant SGs and other SDOs as appropriate
  • To act as a single point of contact within ITU-T with other SDOs in order to avoid duplication of work
  • To examine the best way to make available the most urgent deliverables on network aspects of identification systems (including RFID) (in particular, proposing the creation of focus group(s) for the most urgent topics with corresponding terms of reference).

The JCA-NID activities will report its progress to TSAG.

The first meeting of JCA-NID will be held on 19-21 September 2006.

Introduction

This ITU-T IPTV Global Technical Workshop will review and examine IPTV standardization, political and regulatory aspects, business models and various case studies as well as technical developments and service provider’s operational aspects.

IPTV represents a convergence between the traditional telecommunication and broadcast industries. And, as with any convergence a lot of work is needed to ensure interoperability. Globally accepted standards are clearly a key enabler for this.

With many of the conditions necessary for IPTV rollout in place - global IP connectivity over managed broadband infrastructure with such guarantees as QoS and security, and broadband connectivity with enhanced network capabilities - there is a strong demand for standards to ensure smooth service rollout and interoperability. The workshop will provide a review of the current status of IPTV work as well as an examination of where to go next.
