15 Smart Grid Presentations GSC15-PLEN-52 (ATIS), 53 (ETSI), 54 (ISACC), 55 (ITU), 56 (TTA), 91(TIA) Summary Six reports presented by ATIS, ETSI, ITU-T, TIA, and TTA, each had initiated standardization activities on Smart Grid. Many countries have initiated Smart Grid activities, including China, EU, Japan, Korea and the U.S. Each may have different scopes and approaches due to differences in regional requirements. Smart Grid is an opportunity for the ICT industry. Partnership and cooperation between power and ICT companies are vital to the success of the smart grid story. Key areas of work: communications and networking, data management, privacy, and cyber security. Challenges: better partnership between power and ICT industries; avoid multiplicity of standards, duplication of work. Next steps/actions: needs stronger cooperation and collaboration among national, regional and international activities that relate to standardization in the field of "Smart Grids and ICT.” Resolution The panel prepared a new resolution for continuation of Smart Grid standardization process.
16 M2M communications Presentations GSC15-PLEN-57 (CCSA), 58 (ETSI), 59 (TIA) Main observations M2M is a quickly emerging market driven by telecom operators, integrators, vendors, semi-conductor makers and regulatory M2M is becoming mainstream via major applications like Smart Meters, Smart Grid, eHealth, City Automation, Connected Consumer, Telematics to the Internet of Services, Things and Objects Many M2M standardization activities are spread over the globe Strong need for coordination of M2M standardization to avoid creating a multitude of non compatible M2M standards and keeping a good alignment between standards and market needs Resolution A new Resolution draft (GSC-15-PLEN-83rev1) proposes to establish a M2M Standardization Task Force to coordinate across interested PSOs. A drafting group to be set up to discuss offline, update the draft for decision by the closing plenary
17 Service Oriented Networks Presentations 2 SON contributions from CCSA (60) and ATIS (81). Summary Frameworks facilitate integration and adaptation of service enablers A minimum set of common functions is required in the framework These frameworks allow interworking across technologies: IMS, SOA, Web 2.0, Cloud, etc. Service Providers use the framework to integrate service inventories into multiple products Support for flexible reuse of service enablers allows the same functions to be used for multiple retail and wholesale products Service Oriented Networks are structured cloud implementations Resolution Proposed new Resolution from ATIS (GSC15-PLEN-86)
18 Cloud Computing Presentations Significant interest in cloud computing including 5 presentations from ETSI (61), ISAAC (62), ITU (63), TTA (64r1), and ATIS (82r2). Summary There is a consistent high level understanding of cloud definition. The layers of IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS are widely recognized There are many existing proprietary implementations. Implementable solutions of IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS are inconsistent and proprietary. Many service components already exist but gaps are not clear because of multiple taxonomies Standardizing taxonomy and identifying Cloud layers are more valuable if they are interoperable and consistent: standardized building blocks. Develop consistent requirements for cloud Focused effort on normalizing taxonomy Resolution Proposed new Resolution from ISAAC (GSC15-PLEN-76)
19 New and Novel Policy Management Standards ATIS provided a summary of the results of the ATIS Policy Management Focus Group (PM-FG). Service convergence is highlighting the importance of policy management to provide consistent performance for users across all technologies. In addition, rapid growth in data usage makes it important to use policy to efficiently utilize all available resources. Policy standards work identified in the PM-FG will continue to be progressed in 3GPP and in ATIS PTSC. Applications centric policy requirements will be considered in the next stage of this work.
