Workshop on Next Generation Network Technology and Standardization
Las Vegas, USA, 19 -20 March 2006



A joint ITU-T/ATIS workshop on Next Generation Network Technology and Standardization took place at the Mandalay Bay Convention Centre in Las Vegas, USA, from 19 to 20 March 2006 inclusive.

This workshop was held during the TelecomNEXT event.

Next Generation Network (NGN) standardization work is now well underway in the ITU-T and ATIS (as well as other standards organizations) to increase quality and service features for users, independent of the underlying transport technology. Following the success of these two organizations to identify and react to industry’s NGN standards requirements, and in continuing their commitment to achieve interoperable global standards, this workshop built on the existing relationship between the two organizations to:

  • examine the status of the work in both organizations
  • identify standards work needed to support ongoing viable businesses for all parties as NGN becomes reality, and
  • enhance and extend ITU-T and ATIS cooperation to further coordinate regional and global NGN standardization.
The combined objectives seeked to promote successful NGN deployment, service transparency, and the transition from existing networks. A particular emphasis of the workshop was NGN requirements and standards objectives from a North American perspective and the relationship of these with the global standardization work of the ITU-T.

Sponsors: AT&T, Cisco Systems and Nortel
