Revision of Question

Q.23/13 description was revised to reflect that new tasks of this Question are to identify requirements, capabilities, use cases, and architecture of cloud computing from telecommunication perspectives in cooperation with other relevant SG13 questions. In addition the new Question text includes the possibility to prepare Recommendations. The agreed Q.23/13 “Cloud Computing” text may be found in TD 143 (PLEN/13). The new question Q23/13 will be reported to TSAG after the next January 2011 SG13 meeting harmonizing with further work items in other Questions.


Mr. Gao Wei (China) was agreed as Associate Rapporteur for Q.23/13 “Cloud Computing”.


The meeting considered the decision of JCA-NGN (with recommendation from TSR) to transfer the Q.5/13 work item Y.phys-arch “Physical architecture of NGN with interoperability points” with related terminology work to SG 11, WP 4/11. This decision was reconfirmed with the objection from India.

This meeting attracted 157 participants.

The next SG 13 meeting is planned to take place from 17 to 28 January 2011 in Geneva, Switzerland. That meeting will continue the current practice in SG 13 to run its meetings paperless.
