Chair: Mr J. Visser, ITU-T Special Study Group Chairman [ Short bio ]

Objectives: Mobile communications are the approach of choice in essentially all markets in developed and developing countries. Providing a truly satisfying mobile experience to end users requires suitable air interfaces, advanced capabilities within the core network, close coordination between the two, and network operators in support of global roaming and interconnection. This session will highlight and provide insight into the role of mobility as an essential and integral part of Next Generation Networks.

Day 2, 10 July 2003
09:00-10:30 Session 5:  NGN and Internet: redundant or complementary?
Chair: Mr J-Y. Cochennec, ITU-T Study Group 13 Vice-Chairman

Objectives: Compare two potential approaches for NGN, i.e. NGN should be a natural evolution of traditional PSTN with a separate evolution of the Internet, or the NGN should combine the best of the two philosophies in defining and standardizing one converged network. Evaluate the merits of both the voice-oriented approach for NGN and of new generation of Internet.

11:00-12:30 Session 6:  Fixed-Mobile Convergence: will NGN help?
Chair: Mr K. Lathia, ITU-T Special Study Group Vice-Chairman [ Short bio ]

Objectives: IMT-2000 systems are already working on "all IP" based global roaming and mobility solutions where they are already (radio) access technology independent and allow "charging and billing". With WLAN access technology, seamless MM services provisioning is nowadays driving the fix-mobile-Internet convergence. This session has the main objective of developing a common understanding of the trends and requirements for Next Generation "core" Networks (NGN), in particular on the network architecture and their open, multi﷓vendor interfaces for service/application delivery.
