|(Continuation of Questions 2/11 and 3/11) |
With the ever-increasing number of services and applications, demand has been continuously increasing to enhance the capabilities of next generation networks (NGN), which will enable the Internet of things (IoT), machine-to-machine (M2M), cloud computing, smart pipeline, smart cities, smart home, smart transportation, etc. These emerging applications and services, as well as the evolution of existing applications and services, are introducing more and more requirements, which will certainly impact on the signalling and protocol standardization.
One of the objectives of NGN evolution is to support, in a secure fashion, wide range of services, from legacy telephony and intelligent services to new generation services, encompassing audio, data, video broadcast and conversational services, streaming services, interactive games, third party applications, etc.
Study items to be considered include, but are not limited to:
- What new recommendations are required to specify signalling requirements and protocols for NGN?
What enhancements should be made in existing NGN-related recommendations to support emerging services and applications?
What new recommendations should be made to support emerging services and applications in future networks?
What new recommendations should be made for cloud computing-related services and applications? What associated mechanisms are required to guarantee signalling and control security?
What signalling requirements and entities are required to support services and/or applications of public interest, such as multimedia emergency communications, privacy, lawful interception, number portability, etc.?
Tasks include, but are not limited to:
Develop signalling requirements and protocol profiles for NGN services and applications
Develop signalling requirements and protocols to support IoT and M2M services and applications
Develop signalling requirements and protocols to support cloud computing-related services and applications
Enhance existing signalling protocols based on identified needs.
Develop specifications for interworking between new and existing signalling and protocols
Develop signalling requirements and protocol profiles for public interest.
