Audio Webcast Available


Day 1, 10 September 2007
0930 - 1015 Opening Session
Chairman: Pierre-André PROBST (Chairman, ITU-T SG 16)   

Objectives: The opening session will give a view of NGN today, and provide an overview of the regulatory frameworks affecting NGN deployment.
  • Welcome address: Malcolm JOHNSON (TSB Director)
  • Keynote address: NTT's challenge: create new business on the NGN: Takashi HANAZAWA (Senior Vice President, Senior Executive Director, Research and Development Planning Department, NTT)
  • NGN: Market trends and Regulatory issues: Tim KELLY (TSB)
1015 - 1045 Coffee break
1045 - 1245 SESSION 1: Service Scenarios I - Broadcasting, multicasting
Session Chairman: Ghassem KOLEYNI (Nortel)   

Objectives: The support of streaming type services over NGN is an important and challenging issue. Offering currently available services over NGN, in addition to entirely new services, will bring additional value to subscribers and providers. This session will identify the various challenges and important issues relating to broadcast, multicast, QoS, security, digital rights management (DRM), middleware, applications and content platforms.
  • Multicast and unicast: each in its place: Daniel O'CALLAGHAN (Verizon)
  • AAA Issues in Multicast-Enabled Environments: Christian JACQUENET (France Telecom)
  • The Present and Future of Visual Surveillance services: Xu HEYUAN (CATR, MII, P.R. China)
  • Multimedia Application for IPTV: Masahito KAWAMORI (NTT)
1245 - 1400 Lunch break
1400 - 1530 SESSION 2: Service Scenarios II – Person-to-person communications
Session Chairman: Sakae OKUBO (Japan)   

Objectives: Real-time conversational multimedia services have been a challenge to packet networks, but NGN promises great opportunities for this type of service with respect to bandwidth, QoS and security. This session will explore what new features can be created for real-time conversational type of multimedia services by capitalizing on the NGN and also seeks to understand what additional network capabilities are desired for the NGN from the user perspective.
  • Videoconferencing trends: high definition, telepresence and beyond: Håkon DAHLE (Tandberg)
  • Advanced multimedia system: Paul JONES (Rapporteur Q2/16)
  • Peer-to-peer (P2P) telecom solutions: Ning ZONG (Huawei Technologies)
  • Enhanced Multimedia User Experience beyond 3G: Minoru ETOH (NTT DoCoMo Research Laboratories)
1530 - 1600 Coffee break
1600 - 1730 SESSION 3: Service Scenarios III - Object-to-object communications
Session Chairman: Tony RUTKOWSKI (Verisign, USA)   

Objectives: The extension of IP connectivity and the increasing integration of IT technologies into devices are leading the demand for object-to-object communications. This demand is now extending to cover more diverse applications using NGN, especially in fixed/mobile converged environments. In this context, special attention must be given to identity management (IdM). This session will discuss identity modalities for each specific communication type as well as their handling mechanisms. Scenarios and their requirements for network functions and capabilities will be identified considering the evolution of interactive communication between objects.
  • Toward a coherent framework to support global IdM requirements: Tony RUTKOWSKI (VeriSign)
  • Multimedia delivery services triggered by object and places in the real world: Noboru KOSHIZUKA (YRP Ubiquitous Networking Laboratory, Japan)
  • USN Applications and Services: Hyung-jun KIM (ETRI)
1730 - 1745 Short break
1745 - 1900 WRAP-UP SESSION I
Review and Discussions of the conclusions of Sessions 1,2 and 3

SESSION 1: Service Scenarios I - Broadcasting, multicasting  
SESSION 2: Service Scenarios II - Person-to-person communications  
SESSION 3: Service Scenarios III - Object-to-object communications  
1900 Reception

Supported by: Cisco

Day 2, 11 September 2007
0900 - 1030 SESSION 4: Using NGN capabilities to deliver multimedia services
Session Chairman: Leo LEHMANN (OFCOM, Switzerland)   

Objectives: Due to an increasing demand to deploy advanced multimedia applications like interactive (video) conferencing, whiteboarding and collaboration across a number of networks and access methods, the importance of service aspects has significantly increased. Service requirements and service architecture must also consider quality, service security and service mobility from an end-to-end perspective. MM applications are typically subject to application-specific security and QoS needs that could be best fulfilled by security measures at the application layer and by complementary network security means, as appropriate. This session will concentrate on new developments and progress in the area of NGN capabilities concerning QoS, security and service mobility in order to support multimedia applications and systems.
  • Towards a SOA/WS enabled NGN Open Service Environment: Marco CARUGI (Nortel)
  • Multimedia technologies for NGN, mobile multimedia services: Marwan JABRI (Dilithium)
  • Enabling NGN QoS through Policy-Based Resource and Admission Control: Hui-Lan LU (Alcatel-Lucent)
1030 - 1100 Coffee break
1100 - 1210 SESSION 5: The future of NGN
Session Chairman: John VISSER (Nortel)   

Objectives: NGN includes the major themes of convergence and mobility. This session will look at the convergence of fixed and mobile services within telecoms, and more broadly the convergence of telecoms, IT and broadcast. This convergence is closely linked to the evolution of enabling access technologies, and especially what emerging broadband mobile wireless access technologies ("4G") mean to the evolution of NGNs and the services they support.
  • Fixed-mobile convergence: Evolution of IMS: Stephen HAYES (Ericsson, Chair 3GPP-SA)
  • The Converged Office: John VISSER (Nortel)
  • Impact of multimedia applications to 4G networks and enhancements: Caroline CHAN and Paul Simmons (Nortel Networks)
1210 - 1220 Short break
1220 - 1300 WRAP-UP SESSION II
Review and Discussions of the conclusions of Sessions 4,5 and overall conclusions of the workshop

SESSION 4: Using NGN capabilities to deliver multimedia services  
SESSION 5: The future of NGN
