 Workshop on Multimedia in NGN
 Geneva, 10-11 September 2007 Contact: 
Multimedia applications and services, currently provided and supported by multiple specific network-centric architectures, are migrating towards a single converged user-centric communications network. In this context, we envisage an “internet of things”, and this represents one of the key challenges for NGN standardization. This migration or evolution has been recognized in ITU-T and a number of initiatives have started for the development of global standards in specific areas like IPTV, GRID, networked aspects of identification (including RFID aspects), sensor networks and more. The aim of the NGN is to provide the necessary service capabilities to support present and future multimedia applications and services, taking into account the great potential for further development of new services.

This workshop on Multimedia in NGN will contribute to the NGN vision of supporting future multimedia services and applications, and will facilitate experience and knowledge sharing between multimedia service and application experts with the NGN community.

The various sessions will identify future developments at the service and application level and their impact on NGN capabilities. The workshop will investigate future trends driven by technology and business needs in the area of multimedia services and applications, including those resulting from fixed-mobile-broadcast convergence.

This workshop is being webcasted in audio only and the archives are available through the ITU's Internet Broadcasting Service.
