Innovations in NGN – Future Network and Services
An ITU-T Kaleidoscope Event, Geneva, 12-13 May 2008

Innovations in Next Generation Networks was the first in a series of academic conferences that aims at increasing the dialogue between academia and experts working on the standardization of information and communications technologies (ICT). By viewing technologies through a Kaleidoscope, these forward looking academic conferences will also seek to identify new topics for standardization.

Innovations in NGN brought together visionary ideas on the future of NGN. It highlighted technologies, services and applications five years and beyond that will capitalize on the NGN infrastructure and lead to the ubiquitous network society in which information can be accessed anywhere and anytime by anyone and anything. The event also covered multidisciplinary aspects related to the deployment of NGN, including analysis of regulatory and societal challenges.

Innovations in NGN inspired contributions towards a kaleidoscopic view of communication habits for the future. We know what NGN is in terms of the underlying technology, but we don’t know what services will emerge, how NGN will affect the marketplace for ICT, and how society will be affected. A prize fund totaling $10,000 was kindly donated by Cisco to be awarded to the three best papers.

These papers were

Best paper: Architecture and business model of open heterogeneous mobile network by Yoshitoshi Murata; Mikio Hasegawa; Homare Murakami; Hiroshi Harada; Shuzo Kato

Second best paper: Differential phase shift quantum key distribution by Hiroki Takesue; Toshimori Honjo; Kiyoshi Tamaki; Yasuhiro Tokura

Third best paper: Open API standardisation for the NGN platform by Catherine Mulligan

This event was webcasted in audio only and the archives are available through the ITU's Internet Broadcasting Service.
