NGN Technical Workshop
Jeju Island, Korea (Republic of), 14 - 15 March 2005



ITU held an NGN Technical Workshop, 14 - 15 March 2005 at the Lotte Hotel, Jeju Island, Korea, at the kind invitation of the Korean Government. The workshop served as a useful review point on the road towards NGN, and precedes a meeting of the Focus Group on NGN (FGNGN). 

In May of 2004 work on next generation network (NGN) standards found a home at ITU, with the formation of the FGNGN. Since that time intense work has taken place in this group and across many of ITU-T’s other study groups, towards the development of standards that will define services, network and systems architecture in the next generation of IP enabled communication systems. Indeed NGN has become a key area of study for ITU-T’s study groups. Study groups 2, 11, 13 and 19 for example have a significant NGN focus (Study Group 13 is the lead Study Group for NGN). 

The convergence between internet protocol (IP), public switched telephone network (PSTN), digital subscriber line (DSL), cable television (CATV), wireless local area network (WLAN) and mobile technologies is a task that many believe is impossible without the development of global standards. NGN will offer a richer set of applications to the end user. The work of FGNGN and other ITU-T groups will build on existing fixed/mobile convergence architecture (e.g. 3GPP/3GPP2 IP multimedia subsystem (IMS)) to provide transparency between fixed and mobile networks. 

Among many recent achievements in the NGN field are an output relating to IP-QoS signalling for inclusion in the first set of specifications (Release 1), the foundation of a 'joint coordination activity' (NGN-JCA) aiming to see that standards are developed in the most appropriate place and that no duplication of effort occurs and the development of a set of tools that will give a unique overview of the next generation network (NGN) work going on across the standardization world.
