BcN Deployment Strategies in Korea
|Session I:||NGN Framework and Architecture|
| ||This session will review NGN framework and architecture developed by the FGNGN. It will be discussed from both a fixed and mobile carriers’ perspective. Some outstanding issues that need to be addressed in order to converge fixed and mobile/wireless networks including broadcast networks will be identified.
|Session II:||NGN Services|
| ||This session will review NGN service and capabilities developed by the FGNGN. Discussion points will include a debate on whether IMS-based session control services will be among the first candidates for NGN services. A number of scenarios for NGN services will be discussed, not only fixed and mobile services, but also telecom-based, computer-based, broadcast-based, and consumer-based services, etc.
|Session III:||Group Discussions 1|
| ||This session aims to get rough consensus on issues raised in Sessions I and II. The session will be divided into two parallel sessions according to Sessions I and II. Speakers from the sessions will make up the panel. All participants will be free to join and discuss on the following outstanding issues;
- what are the urgent problems to be solved for NGN architecture and services?
- how will it be possible to evolve NGN worlds economically and efficiently?
- will NGN markets open gradually or will there be a more radical move from existing services?
- Do NGN architecture and services take into account future human behavior and technology development?
The results of this discussion will be summarized.

|Session IV:||NGN Applications|
| ||This session will discuss NGN applications from an end-user perspective with particular attention to future digital multimedia broadcast, and home applications. A number of NGN applications will be discussed from the viewpoints not only of the telecom industry, but also the computer, broadcast and consumer industries, etc.
|Session V:||NGN Technology I|
|Session VI:||NGN Technology II|
| ||Session V and VI on NGN technologies will be discussed. A number of technology issues will be reviewed including|
- what will the enabling technologies in the NGN world be?
- are those technologies financially viable?
- are NGN technologies ready to support other industries like education, health, transport, bank transaction, and emergency service, etc.?
- is end-to-end QoS provisioning critical for NGN?
- how is it possible to identify end user, service and equipment for home and ubiquitous service environments?
|Session VII:||Group Discussions 2|
| ||Similar to Session III, this session intends to get rough consensus on issues raised in Sessions IV, V and VI. Outstanding technical issues relating to NGN will be discussed. The results of the discussion will be summarized, with the intention to deliver some some relevant inputs to the NGN Focus Group meeting.
