ITU-T Workshop on NGN in collaboration with IETF
ITU Headquarters, Geneva, 1 - 2 May 2005

Contact: tsbworkshops@itu.int

Introduction

ITU-T held a workshop on NGN together with the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), 1 - 2 May, 2005, Geneva. The workshop  also served as an important meeting point for ITU-T and IETF management.

The overall objectives of the workshop were to explore specific NGN issues that impact both the ITU-T and the IETF to better understand the work underway in the two organizations and to identify areas where actions could be taken between the ITU-T and IETF to further coordinate their work.

Six sessions were each co-chaired by an ITU representative and a representative from IETF. Topics included requirements and functional architecture; nomadicity and mobility; QoS, control and signalling capabilities; network management; security capabilities and evolution.

The workshop, the second on NGN in 2005, is an example of the way in which ITU-T is seeking to engage all interested parties in work towards the development of worldwide standards for NGN. In this way, industry demands for the efficient and swift completion of the specifications that will define the way that NGNs work will be met.

Objectives

  • To explore specific NGN issues that impact both the ITU-T and the IETF to better understand the work underway in the two organizations; and
  • To identify those areas where actions could be taken between the ITU-T and the IETF to further should coordinate their NGN-related work., and to seek to reach agreement on any actions to be taken to coordinate the work of the two organizations and perhaps establish joint activities.
This workshop was webcasted in audio only and the archives are available through the ITU's Internet Broadcasting Service.
