  • Assigned the three new Questions to this WP. The agreed three new Questions are
    • Q.26/13 Cloud computing ecosystem, inter-cloud and general requirements. (Based on Q.cc1/13 of French contribution C 1186R1 with extension of the scope to cover  Desktop as a Service (DaaS) requirements and architecture aspects). Supporting members are France, France Telecom Orange, Microsoft, China Telecom, NTT Japan, USA and ETRI Korea. Mr. Kangchan Lee (ETRI, Korea) was assigned to be the Rapporteur for this new Question.

The Questions above (see for the Question description TD 264 (PLEN/13)) were agreed with the understanding that they can start working immediately and that the TAP process is assigned to any cloud computing deliverable with regulatory implications.
Taking advantage of the present NGN GSI event and experts presence in Geneva, the leadership team of the newly created WP 6/13 “Could Computing” convened its meeting on 7 February to look into the organization of WP6 work and elaborate the terms of references for the first Rapporteur groups activities of Qs 26, 27 and 28/13 to happen in April 2012. The meeting was open to any delegate wishing to attend. The report of this leadership activity is produced as TD275 (GEN/13).

  • The cloud computing deliverables already under development in SG 13, Y.VNC in Q.4/13 and Y.cloud-SIDE-reqs in Q.3/13, were handled to the new WP on cloud computing.
  • All the proposals for the new work item on cloud computing submitted to SG 13 6 February meeting and NGN GSI event of February 2012 were transferred to the new WP6/13 (see TD 262 (PLEN/13)).

An important number of new Recommendations on cloud computing is expected to be initiated in the new WP 6/13 (among those a terminology and reference architecture Recommendations).

  • The Rapporteurs of three new Questions identified each the need for the interim Rapporteur group meeting. These requests were authorized by the SG 13. Therefore, Q. 26/13, Q.27/13 and Q.28/13 will meet in April 2012 in Geneva to start working on the assigned deliverables. Precise Terms of References and dates will be sorted out and advertised later.
    [Subsequent note: While this executive summary was in preparation the detailed terms of references and timing for the above Qs Rapporteur group meetings have been fixed and may be found in TD 275 (GEN/13).]
  • Correspondence group on cloud computing (t09sg13cloud@lists.itu.int) was terminated. Its convener, Mr. Kangchan Lee, was thanked for having taken the leading role of this activity. His report on the activities and agreements reached in this correspondence group was noted and agreed by the meeting.
  • Workshop
    The meeting agreed that the workshop on future networks standardization is to be convened in association with the next SG 13 meeting (4 – 15 June 2012, Geneva). This workshop will be jointly organized by ITU-T SG13 and ISO/JTC1/SC 6. Mr. Takashi Egawa (Q.21/13 Rapporteur) and Mr. Shin-Gak Kang (JTC1/ SC 6 convener) were assigned to work closely to elaborate the programme of the workshop and its proceeding.
